Los Angeles based award winning freelance photographer Todd Bigelow designed the course for those interested in pursuing careers working with editorial publications, non-profits, foundations and corporations. It provides practical advice and information on the business of photography derived from photographer Todd Bigelow’s two decades of shooting assignments for TIME, Sports Illustrated, Smithsonian, Newsweek, National Geographic Traveler, People, James Irvine Foundation, Costco, Target and many others. Todd presents real experiences and scenarios as the basis for discussions regarding copyright, licensing for revenue, contracts, rate and term negotiations, client development techniques, social media integration, portfolio considerations, legal & tax issues, agency representation, digital asset management and more. Basically, the topics that freelancers face on a daily basis are addressed from a practical, modern standpoint. It’s his goal to have students leave the workshop with a sound understanding to successfully handle the significant business matters they will face on a daily basis as a professional freelance photographer.
