Disconnect: there’s always a disconnect between the dream, and the reality of being a photographer.
The ability to find NEW clients, is 100% based on 2 things: networking, and an outstanding portfolio. If you can’t do, or don’t have both, LEARN how to network, and shoot what you want to show.
ShutterCliq was started from a VERY cool Facebook Photography Group that engages in some pretty amazing discussions. This one was pretty recent but we thought it was worth sharing.
Thanks to Jaime Julius for her contribution here. Jaime and her husband Tony are a team of photographers based in Tempe Arizona, offering Personalized Weddings & Portraits including Newborn, Children, Family, Seniors, Couples and & Engagement Sessions.
ShutterCliq’s Website was spawned from a Facebook Photography Group that is full of people at various stages in their businesses. There’s 35 year Veteran Photographers and people who are just getting started, and all stages in between. The beauty of this, is that there are threads started that contain INCREDIBLY useful information for all photographers. We have tried to capture some of the incredible content and advice offered up so YOU can use it in your business.
This list of books are some of our favorites that we have come across over the years. Although most of them directly relate to photography, a few correlate with running your business or how to spark creativity. We highly recommend this list.
