imageZest is creating a space where emerging talent in photography can meet potential clients - for their mutual benefit.
Axbridge, Somoerset (PRWEB UK) 11 April 2013
imageZest is a new, web-based service designed to help photographers find clients and vice versa.
For clients, the site gives them easy access to Britain’s emerging talent in photography and image-making. Initially, the site will focus on the best students from the most respected courses at leading institutions of higher education, such as Blackpool, BCU, and Falmouth.
Later, imageZest plans to include photographers’ assistants and even gifted amateur photographers, and to expand the service to other countries.
For young photographers, the site gives them the opportunity to present their portfolio and bid for commercial briefs from advertising and design agencies, corporations and even individuals.
imageZest CEO, Bill Noble, comments: “We’re creating a space where emerging talent in photography can meet potential clients - for their mutual benefit. For too long, the people commissioning images have faced the Hobson’s Choice of bland stock shots or sourcing expensive original assets. Meanwhile, talented photographers have struggled to get their first commercial briefs. imageZest squares this circle in a fresh and exciting way.”
Behind the launch of imageZest is also a belief that commissioning commercial photography for brands is currently too expensive, high-risk and time-consuming; yet brands deserve original imagery to help them stand out and engage with consumers.
