It’s no surprise to hear that our Co-Chair Christina Force will be speaking at CA+ this year. She just can help helping photographers.
Christina built a huge following in Singapore, Hong Kong and China when she touted her photographers’ folios across the region over the course of 15 years when she owned The Collective Force. Since selling her photographers agency (which is still prominent in the region), she has consulted to photographers around the world and helped them crack the Asian market. She’s also consulted to photographers based in Asia and Asia based creatives who want to become photographers.
Christina has been flown around New Zealand, Australia, and Asia by various photographic associations to speak to groups ranging from 12 to 350 photographers. She’s taught a class at the New York Academy of Film, and her programmes are sought after and now have a high benchmark, you’ll be glad to know you’ll get your registration fee’s value back with this one keynote.
Christina will be talking about ways to get noticed in Asia, and how to build relationships with those decision makers you’ve just connected with.
More Sunday Sessions will be updated soon!
One of our alumni, Sebastian Tan is an agent and producer with experience across Asia.
We’ll be running the event from The Shooting Gallery so it’s no surprise he’s kindly given us the weekend to review folios too. This experience is not to be missed.
You really must get your work in front of Sham. He’s an engaging and warm creative, with years of experience at some of the top agencies in Singapore, including DDB Worldwide and Ogilvy. After attending our last event, he wants to see your work and he wants to work with you.
