Hello, I am Betty Fink. I work as a photographic consultant and lecturer, I publish books, curate exhibitions, design and hold workshops. However, I mainly work with photographers individually to develop concepts for their projects, advising them on the further development of their work as well as on marketing issues. I develop websites and portfolios with them.
In the more than 25 years that I have worked with photographers in various capacities, I have observed how vulnerable paths of development are and how rocky the road to an established and distinctive photographic personality is – lined with personal, artistic and economic challenges. I would like to share my experience and offer exchange so that photographers can also gain strength in their external presentation. With inspiration and impulses, I want to initiate movement and create connections.
I ran the OSTKREUZ photography agency from 2003 to 2015. During this time, I worked internationally with all the major magazines, advertising agencies, book publishers, foundations and exhibition institutions in the field of journalistic, documentary and artistic photography … and with great photographers.
