Updated Portrait Idea

Artists that use internet to sell and network their business.

Well known sites to advertise business 
  • Facebook
  • Etsy 
  • Ebay 
  • Amazon
I will look at artists that make a living from selling their hobby and how they advertise their business using social networking.
I want my portraits to range in age to demonstrate how the younger generation are also using a art hobby to make a profit.

Sites like Etsy make it easier to sell Art and handmade items. This is far more simple for a growing business that has started up.
Art site Etsy is popular in the younger generation for handmake Jewellery, clothing and also 
accessories because it is simple to set up and start selling.

Advertising A Business With Facebook

It is also very easy and quick to create a business page or 'likes' page for a business through Facebook and also popular.
This advertises and lets other people see your work.
Example image above is my own Facebook photography page.

Everything else in my old portrait post is still relevant, i will still research Arnold Newman and Irvin Penn along with other relevant Photographers.

Contextual Research
