Photo by Paul Bergmeir Once again, we find ourselves in the position of reading advice for photographers on how to get into the business that leaves
Kris is a Father, World traveller, Photographer, Social Media Ninja, Environmentalist, Advisor to the UN, Author, Technologist, SXSW Advisory Board Member, BC Fashion Week Director of Photography…ok there’s a heck of a lot more that this man does…but I think you get the picture.
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.
I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve read this or a variation on this theme:
“WTF…I shot a perfect session, made some awesome images…and they only ordered a couple 4×6’s and 5×7’s???”
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.
