I offer my Manhattan, NYC townhouse as a shooting location. I am interested in sending a 4 x 6 postcard to local magazine photo editors, design studios, and advertising agencies. I'll rent a list from Adbase, Workbook, Freshlists, or one of the others.

My question is this: at advertising agencies is it the creative director, the art director, or the art buyer who is most likely to tell photographers which location to shoot at? Should I mail to all three at advertising agencies, or just one or two.

Thanks!

It's often no one at an agency but rather the producer or the photographer her/himself who finds the location. Someone will scout (photog., producer) and offer a selection to the creative team to choose from.

There are many resources in major cities like NYC where you can list locations. Check with the local film commission--I'm sure they'll have details.

Best--
