Stepping back to jump forward

In mid-April 2020 Redeye invited colleagues from Company of Mind, Adrian West and Sophie Brown, to talk online to artists and photographers about how to adapt creative businesses to the coronavirus pandemic. They shared some useful ideas about how to think about and picture businesses in a way that enables us to see what we might change for the better. In this article Adrian and Sophie explore those ideas a bit further.

Are you really doing what you want?

Redeye’s director Paul Herrmann writes about the significance of business models for photographers and artists.

Every so often we survey and interview working photographers to find out how they are doing - to see if they have got enough fulfilling work and a reasonable income. There’s consistently a small minority who say that things are going very well. This was true even through the depths of the recession. 

What are they doing that is different to the majority who say that things are difficult? What do they all have in common?
