Social Pictures Announces Five New Signings

Social Pictures Announces Five New Signings

Today, Social Pictures announces the signings of five new female influencers, Zoë Timmers, Sara Tasker, Philippa Stanton, Vanessa McKeown and Geraldine Tan.

Social Pictures launched in 2015, and the new signings join the agency in its ongoing quest to match social visionaries and storytellers with the world’s leading brands. They will join a roster of top-notch influencers that have enabled the agency to grow from its infancy into a powerful force in the creative industry – delivering high quality, engaging content, combining creativity with targeted influence. The agency exclusively represents influencers that have a collective reach of over 20 million.

The new signings stretch across a range of industries and talents; Zoë Timmers, an ex television producer, and now travel and landscape photographer, Sarah Tasker a stylist, Philippa Stanton a Brighton based artist, Vanessa McKeown, a still life photographer and Art Director, and Geraldine Tan – a doctor turned lifestyle stylist.   

Existing influencers include the well known Dan Rubin, Meagan Cignoli, Alex Strohl and Olly Lang. Some notable campaigns by Social Pictures include influencer Matt Crump’s yearlong production of content for Malibu’s Instagram feed, and a collaboration between M&C Saatchi and Land Rover, using four Social Influencers for Land Rover’s #HiberNot campaign.

Coinciding with the signings is today’s female-focused holiday, International Women’s Day, which celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. Donna Amey, Head of Social Pictures, is happy to make this announcement on such a day. The influencer industry has, and continues to be, dominated by men, even with social media itself being dominated by women – something Social Pictures hopes to change.

Donna Amey comments: “Women dominate social media, in general, in terms of users. For example, Instagram has more female than male users – and they certainly engage more, but there are more men (59 percent) with over 10.000 followers than women (41 percent). A similar case is reflected in the creative industry in general, where it’s widely known that the percentage of senior female creatives is currently just 3%.”

Tim Jenkin, Co Founder, Social Pictures, adds: “After launching Social Pictures last year with an amazing roster, it’s great to be able to keep things fresh with new talent, and what better way to introduce our brand new female signings than on International Women’s Day.”
