Bikini interviews top Advertising Photographer Adam Swords...

Hi Adam! Firstly, What made you choose BikiniLists?

I was recommended Bikinilists by another photographer friend of mine. Even though I'm in the advertising industry, I really value word of mouth recommendations especially those from my peers and so I decided to take a closer look at what Bikinilists could offer me.

What has been your experience of working with BikiniLists?

Since I first signed up I've always had exceptional service from Bikinilists. I don't often need to contact them directly as the user interface is very simple and easy to use, but any direct contact I have had has always been a pleasure.

Has it been easy to promote on a regular basis?

The beauty of the service is that you can schedule as many campaigns as your budget allows for - if you want to do one a week, go ahead. I personally try to get something out every 4-6 weeks so that I always have fresh, high quality work to show to art buyers.

What have been the benefits to your business with the USA market specifically?

Relocating from the UK to the USA was certainly a daunting prospect. But as soon as I arrived here I was able to access a huge database of art buyers which was invaluable in kick starting my business on this side of the pond. I can't even imagine where I would have started trying to get contact details for all of those people had I not been a subscriber.

Have you secured new clients / appointments as a result of using our service?

I've set up meetings as a direct result of having access to the bikinilist database over here and if all goes to plan, will be bidding on shoots within the next 4-6 weeks.

What would you say to someone else that is considering using BikiniLists?

The beauty of Bikinilists is that it takes a huge amount of stress out of marketing your photography business. As I said, trying to get the contact information of all of the art buyers I have contacted without having access to the Bikinilists database would have been a monumental job. The best piece of advice I can give though is to make it clear that Bikinilists is not there to do the hard work for you. It's a foot in the door, a handshake, the first step on the way to landing that dream gig. Don't expect to subscribe to Bikinilists, sit back and see the jobs flooding in. You still have to hustle and at the end of the day it's the quality of your work that will win you the job. So as long as you understand that the Bikinilist service is a marketing tool and not a complete solution, you'll have a lot of success with it.

Illustrators and photographers – how to find new clients

by Garrick Webster

Subscribing to a list service doesn't sound very exciting, but it's an effective way of finding new clients in the creative industries. Here's a look at what's available to today's creative…

Marketing. It can be the bane of your life if you are a creative professional. While it's true that some of us love the cut and thrust of seeking out and landing new clients, for many creatives marketing yourself just gets in the way of... well... being creative. Photographers, illustrators, designers and visual effects pros don't spend years honing their skills and developing their unique styles in order to sit around fiddling with email marketing campaigns. For many, it's a chore you might undertake after updating your portfolio, and only if there's no coffee in the house and no work coming in.


Happy New Year everyone! This is a great time to get your work out there... the buyers are well-rested and ready to spend their new year budgets!

Please give us a call if you need a hand with anything.

Happy Halloween guys! Did you know...The ancient Celts thought that spirits and ghosts roamed the countryside on Halloween night. They began wearing masks and costumes to avoid being recognized as human.
