But don’t worry, LPA will continue to be the go to resource for all your photography questions and needs. 

Lisa is currently working on her 3rd published book , the 2nd edition of ‘Setting Up a Successful Photography Business’, with a whole new set of contributors from all areas of the photography industry and a few updates. The 1st edition of this book and the sequel ‘Running a Successful Photography Business’ are available now ( from Amazon and all good bookshops!) and contain heaps of useful information to help you set up and stay on top of your game. We’re proud to say both these books have remained the best- selling guides in the U.K on the business of photography since they were published!

To cover your questions on commissioning, we are also about to re-run our very popular 10 part series ‘How to Commission a Photographer’ with some brand new examples and images, so watch this space! This super useful guide, tells you all you need to know about commissioning photography, from how to write a photoshoot brief to the final shoot day and every stage in between.

And if that’s not enough don’t forget LPA offers a number of other services aside from representing photographers, designed to help photographers without agents and those commissioning:

Pop Up Agent/ A handy initiative to help photographers without agents deal with shoot enquiries and any other photography related issues, from re-usage fees to shoot contracts to location permits to legal guidance. 

LPA Production/ A complete shoot production service. We can help with every element of your shoot, from casting to scouting to sourcing the crew and organising the catering.

Portfolio Reviews/ Lisa also offers one to one portfolio reviews to unrepresented photographers.

So you see LPA really are the UK’s most helpful agent! More information on all the above services can be found right here on the website.
