I have always thought that a blog should be more than just a tool for self-promotion. This was reinforced this past week in interviews of art buyers, reps and photographers I filmed for a project sponsored by Agency Access and created by Amanda Sosa Stone, Suzanne Sease and Jennifer Kilberg. When asked about the importance of social networking as a means for photographers to market themselves, each said it is extremely important for photographers to have a blog and be associated with twitter and Facebook. In particular, most said they’d like to see more editorial content in blogs. It is informative — not just for our own growth as photographers, but also for the creatives who hire us — to explore how our experiences and view of the world inform our work.
