Areas of Expertise


Professional Experiences

I have over 25 years of experience in the celebrity photo industry and founded and managed my own photo agency. I was responsible for negotiating with clients for payment, monitoring sales, billing for photo usage, and reporting sales to photographers. During this period, the business has changed markedly from the use of slides shipped daily to clients via FedEx at their expense, to slides being scanned and transmitted via  ISDN lines, to the digital images being produced, and then transmitted via broadband to clients.  Each transition in the industry has resulted in many factors affecting the profitability of photos and the problems of protecting copyrights and value of the photos.  This experience give me intimate insight into the celebrity photo industry.
