Industry Contacts & potential briefs…
Along with exploring the internet I have also made a couple of phone calls to some industry contacts that I have. The three particular design agencies/companies being:
1) Touch Rainbow Productions
2) Synergy Agency
3) Papini UK
TOUCH RAINBOW PRODUCTIONS
A media and film based company that specialise into events, filmography, photography, community festivals, community learning and also event co-ordination. I have known of this company and been in regular contact with the business owners of the past 4 years. There most prided and largest success would be running, documenting, and co-orindation the film, culture and arts festival ‘An Indian Summer’ based in the cultural quarters of Leicestershire.
Speaking to the director of this company I have arranged for him to get back to me by thursday 6th March as to whether they can offer me some live work/ a live brief that heavily involves photography based work on set or at some of there events.
2) SYNERY AGENCY
It just so happen that my cousin is a ‘CREATIVE DESIGNER’ at Synergy agency. They are a creative design agency located in the Midlands. Below is a image of all of there clients!
As you can see they have a broad range of clients ranging from Health stores to a football club, there specialism is fairly broad and there work tends to fall within the fields of: graphic design, photography, illustration, installations design etc.
I have arranged for my cousin to speak to her boss about me and whether there is any briefs available for me to work on, I will be finding out on Thursday 6th march whether I can progress with any work with the agency! FINGERS CROSSED!
3) PAPINI STUDIO UK
I have a very creative family! One of my other cousins is a fashion designer at Papini Studios UK a fashion design and photographic studio based in West Yorkshire. My cousin is Head fashion designer at this studio and has actually asked me in the past to freelance as a photographer for the company itself taking photographs of there current line of designs. A possible pathway I could take, needing to get in contact with her ASAP to see if the opportunity is still there or not.
