APA Los Angeles with SternRep bring you "Why We Hire You”

APA welcomes back Andrea Stern (SternRep) as moderator for another engaging panel to help answer the question of “Why We Hire You”.

  • What makes a photographer’s style just right for a job?
  • Does the creative team know the photographer they want to use from the beginning of the concepting process?
  • How do art producers find new photographers? What goes into the process of choosing a photographer who wins?

Learn all the answers to these questions and more.

Also hear from panelists about current market trends and where we are all headed.  How has social media changed the marketing game and world of advertising in general?  Are big budgets still to be had, and where can they be found? Andrea Stern will take on the role as your virtual photo rep for the evening. She will delve into the minds of top decision makers in the ad agency, client direct and editorial markets to find out how you can increase your chances of being hired. Join us for an insightful discussion among leading industry professionals.
