Taiga Creative is a creative agency based in Portland, OR and Juneau, AK. I represent professional commercial photographers and fine art artists.
I take great pride this business of arts representation and building relationships. I seek to promote, educate, and inspire both business, agency, or collector and artist. My aim is to build the bond between artist and client or collector as well as organize, manage, and create a lasting impression for any client or artist who walks through my [virtual] door.
Taiga Creative was founded by Meredith Bless in 2014. Meredith has built strong relationships and cultivated connections in the commercial photo + video, fine art, and music industries on the western seaboard from Alaska to California with ad agencies, directly with companies, artists, and art galleries.
Services include but are not limited to art business consulting, artist representation, contract writing, pricing, branding, web/graphic design, marketing and PR. In short, Taiga Creative is a representative or agent to artists. For clients/businesses, Taiga Creative is a consultant for arts and marketing related needs. Email Meredith with as many questions as you like: firstname.lastname@example.org
Prior to starting Taiga Creative, Meredith spent 14 years pursuing creativity and adventure while building relationships in the publishing, arts, and commercial communities. Her photography of light throughout her cross-continental travels was her foundation while she discovered her niche in the creative world. Meredith created Taiga Creative as a platform to help artists successfully pursue their love of creativity and adventure. Little known fact, in the last year Meredith has found a new love for writing about the arts industry and arts management on her blog: Taiga Creative Blog

Her previous experience includes manager for the studio of photographer Art Brewer, among a decade of knowledge as a photographer, assistant, and creative director in the business of commercial photography. She is an avid outrigger, paddle boarder, and adventurer. As a Navy wife with a charismatic 6 year old, her home moves as frequently as it needs to.
