You have properly established a studio and you have got several clients and you’ve felt that you are going in the right way in this career. Perhaps, though, there are more you can do? That instead of sitting in the studio reading photography magazines and updating on the Instagram while waiting for your customers to visit your site or come to your studio, there are more things you can possibly do or achieve to expand yourself even more and to promote to even more people.
Take a look at Justin Bailey Photography or other wedding photographer Essex. What do they have that you possibly don’t and can have? Aside from experience that can only come with time, there other things you can do to further your skill.
Deepen your knowledge/Follow the trend
Taking an extra degree or class in photography can help widen your view and perceptions. These classes will equip with you with many basic techniques and terms you can incorporate into your style and work. Checking out social media that are full of updates on the newest trend on photography, especially in the wedding area, and analyzing if these styles can be incorporated and still produce timeless pictures you can include in the album, not just a fad.
Join the club
There are many communities, associations or clubs that you can join to expand your photographer network and learn from. Some of the most famous are BIPP and SWPP. These associations provide classes, trainings, and allow fellow members become mentors, teachers and friends. Competitions are commonly held and certificates are specially bestowed to only those who qualify, making it one proof to show for your clients.
If you haven’t and even if you had successfully delivered albums to previous clients, there are always new things to learn in human communication. There’s a chance that you have not met brides or grooms that extremely shy around unfamiliar people or cameras. To handle this, it can prove to be a problem when taking natural emotions from them, unless you are super quiet and sneak around like a spy to steal pictures of them.
If you see your clients still acting awkward around you when closing in the big day, go through the extra mile and tell them that you will make sure everything will go find and that they don’t have to worry, but be the happy couple they are on that day. Emphasize that they won’t even notice you are there to take their pictures and everything will be just fine.
If possible expand your service availability to other part of the country. Also, don’t shy away from unconventional weddings, such as Indian weddings, but take up the challenge to expand your knowledge and gain an even bigger market size. You need to research more about wedding that you are unfamiliar about, even if you think that you can *somehow* handle it.
There’s also the possibility of expanding partnership with fellow lone wedding photographer to provide an extra service for your services as a wedding photographer Essex. Many couples like having an extra hand that will secure the party in more sides and to make sure that nothing is missed, especially in a big party.
