Conversations with Creatives: Christine Saunders, Art Buyer

by evolveimages

Kicking off our series of interviews with image buyers and image makers, we present an informal discussion with Christine Saunders, Senior Art Buyer.  Christine, along with Janet Saville, is co-founder of SQUINT Showcase, a curated exhibition gallery for creative talent wanting access to leading UK and US advertising agencies. With over 25 years of award-winning experience at top London agencies, including JWT, Saatchi & Saatchi, FCB, CDP, and DDB, Christine is now career coaching with creatives and visual researching for agencies world over from her base in Seattle.

In this discussion Christine addresses the challenges of “too much choice”, the value of curation and wisdom gleaned from mentors who guided her career. Christine also discusses the importance  of the collaborative process that takes place between creatives and photographers. Working with DDB creative directors Grant Parker and Mark Ready and illustrator David Bray and photographer Tim Bret-Day, Christine produced award-winning work for Harvey Nichols.

Best advice for photographers when presenting work to creatives: “Be bold: don’t second guess your work or worry what others might think. Just show it.”
