Sustainable Photography in a Disintermediated Era

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Photography has never been more important. It’s become a universal language, spoken by nearly everyone. It’s a primary tool in the battle for user engagement in mobile and web. But professional photographers are experiencing massive dislocation as publishing becomes disintermediated and reintermediated. Old business models are cast aside and the value proposition of the independent visual creator is changing overnight.
Despite these difficulties, there is exploding opportunity for the visual creator to take advantage of the importance of photography. New models of publishing and distribution have allowed fantastic growth in new content stacks, including microcultures and direct-to-fan. And all companies now need photographic speakers as never before.
Our panel brings together three perspectives on thriving in the changing media landscape, and navigating the transition from old media to new. They’ll outline the forces at work and the opportunities for photographic communicators.
