TRAINER’S BIOGRAPHY

Laure Bouvet began her career as an art buyer for large advertising agencies such as Young & Rubicam and Fred & Farid. She then managed the art buying department of the agency La Chose for seven years. For more than 10 years, she reviewed thousands of portfolios in selecting artists and photographers for advertising campaigns.

In 2018, she founded Well Done John and continues to work as an art buyer for various advertising agencies, while offering coaching and training services for photographers.

After observing the profound changes in the profession of photography over the last decade (shrinking budgets, the emergence and affirmation of social media, the concept of “royalty-free”, the growing weight of video), Laure chose to focus on photographers, empowering them to thrive in a world marked by new rules.

PROGRAM

> Day 1: Assert your identity as a photographer and enter the photo market.
