Tinagent, established in 1995, was the first agency in Norway to represent still photographers. The company is owned and managed by Cathrine Sigurdsen and founder Tina Holth. The agency is founded on the philosophy to represent and support a selected number of photographers by helping them preserve and strengthen their commercial career, in addition to develop the artistic activity in a close and long term collaboration. The agency has chosen to work with photographers of great integrity, who dare cultivate their individuality – and at the same time appreciate that communication and team work with the client always lead to optimal results. Tinagent represents some of the most acclaimed photographers in Scandinavia. One of the agent´s strongest assets is rooted in a
passion and love for photography itself – a focus which also is decisive for Tinagent’s way of working. Our primary tasks lie within the commercial photography, spanning from fashion, advertising, design, music, editorial spreads, books and filmdirection – to exhibitions and other special projects for a wide range of Norwegian and international clients, commercial as well as non-commercial. Tinagent functions as a service link, a quality control and a producer between the photographer, the client and the rest of the team of collaborators. The agents daily tasks include recommendation of the different photographic styles and expressions, the photographer’s qualifications, specialities and merits, project coordination, presentation and communication with subcontractors.
Cathrine Sigurdsen has a wide range of experience in advertising and international branding, having worked in television production and administration. Cathrine handles recommendations, productions and negotiations for Tinagent's photographers.
