Visual Connections organizes the only events of their kind in the U.S. that bring together buyers and suppliers of photography, illustration and footage. These are intimate affairs, offering an opportunity for buyers to discover new sources of visual media, learn about the business of licensing and using visual media, and networking with people who matter. Working closely with Workbook, Visual Connections now attracts artist reps and production companies, becoming the meeting place for all visual creatives from stock users on a budget to high end producers. Entry is free but restricted to professional media buyers and researchers. Visual Connections also offers an online directory of visual media suppliers. The team behind Visual Connections comprises Deborah Free and Edward Leigh, together having nearly 50 years of experience in the industry.
