Developing A Photography Business
Where do I want to be this time next year? in 5 years? This is the question I've been focusing on during the current down time.
In an effort to keep myself busy and productive I've decided to develop on some projects. One of them, which should help me get to where I want to be in the future, is to have more of an online presence with my photography work. I've had a website up and running for a short while now but have never really took the time to advertise it and highlight it's presence around the web. And so I have now created a Facebook Business page, as well as a LinkedIn page. I don't imagine I would get much direct work through these avenues, but hopefully have more of an opportunity to network within the industry as well as have a couple more platforms to showcase my work from.
(As i've not got much new imagery to put into this post.... i'm just going to post some of my recent images of Edinburgh!)
Aside from this, I've also been reading up on a lot of industry articles, binge watching Youtube tutorials, and just generally playing around with my camera! A few articles I've recently read regarding how to develop your photography business and make the best time of the lock down are: Expert Photography - 10 Things Your Contract Must Include Petapixel - Using Social Distancing As An Opportunity Expert Photography - Top Trends in Photography Pixpa - Instagram Hashtags for Photographers
One great resource I have recently discovered is Sue Bryce Education - Who has very generously offered their courses for free until 26th April!
Another thing I would like to work on is think about and narrow down the 'why' - Why I want to do photography. This should hopefully provide me with the motivation to keep pushing and trying new things.
Oh! and also develop my writing skills for this blog....
Cheers for reading!
