Hi, I'm Einebillion and I'm learning more about wikidata by doing. I'm interested in studio photographers and photographic studios. I'm noticing a lot of GLAMs (galleries, libraries, archives and museums) are digitising their photographic collections and I think it would be useful for them if there was more information about these photographers and studios that was available in a structured way. I also know that family history researchers use the activity dates known about studio photographers to date events in the lives they are documenting. I've noticed there isn't a lot of information about studio photographers and photographic studios in wikidata but there's more than a few databases in mix'n'match that need a helping hand so that is where I'm starting.
Work currently being undertaken
Working through the Te Papa artist's dataset and the Photographers' Identities Catalog dataset in Mix'n'Match to work out the minimum data set I need to make a quality record that will assist with future linking and data matching.
