Coming onboard means joining the family

Philly Reps is a Marketing and Consulting House. We partner with our photographers to offer targeted marketing and consulting support to ensure their work and brands get the exposure they deserve. Because, let's face it, no one is going to hire you if they don't know you exist.

Our House was established by creatives for creatives. We know more than anyone that no talented artist deserves to starve and so we're offering a seat at the table. Call it comfort food, cheerleading, brand management, marketing support, an extra set of eyes, a photo editor, a photo therapist, a rep, a valuable member of your team, or simply someone you can be professionally honest with—we are something different to each and every one of the photographers we work with. And that's exactly the way we like it. In this industry, it's all about making impressions on the right people at the right time, and with the right content. We're here to help you do that in any way needed.

Saying About Us

 

“Philly Reps not only refreshed my brand, they transformed the way I shoot and gave me the confidence and community to take my work to the next level. With a keen eye for detail, they went through years of portrait work and put together a dynamic rebrand that shows the world exactly who I am and what I'm capable of. They truly are the best in the business.”

- RJ Lewis

“The custom emailer you designed and pulled content for worked out great! I ended up getting three different projects from that email blast."

- Mario Madau

“I really enjoyed working with Stacy on my new web and print portfolio. She was able to completely revamp the way my portfolio was presented and really took the time to understand my vision and workflow. I would highly recommend Philly Reps to any photographer looking to take their business to a new level.”
