On The Daring: Photographer Christine Blackburne — Pick Clients Who Appreciate You

Location: New York City
“In this industry oversaturated with photographers, the only way to make a name for yourself (and stay sane) is to pick clients who appreciate what you're doing.” — Christine Blackburne

Today, we take a closer look at finding the right client base with Christine Blackburne. Christine’s an award-winning still-life photographer and videographer based in New York City, and she’s been in the game for over 15 years. She’s created media for Benefit Cosmetics, Shiseido, Tiffany, Essence, Food and Wine, NY Magazine, the list goes on.

There’s conventional wisdom around finding the right audience, the right client base. In commercial work, we hear "be yourself" or "co-create with your clients" so much, it's platitudes. What does this mean, day-to-day? What decisions might one make over the years to hone in on the right client? And what does the right client even mean? How might we improve our understanding?

We explore how Christine cultivates her creative voice and markets herself. She's continually sharpening her focus and evolving as an artist.
