hello

hi there! i am just starting my own photography business. i will do just about any kind of photo work, although i seem to be getting more wedding jobs than anything else.

well, i've gotten a few jobs word of mouth and just got another one today. i also just took a bunch of cards to local florists, bakeries, formal wear shops, etc today. i got one bite from a store owner for a job... but the rest were more than happy to put my cards out with other ones they already had. i'm trying to figure out what local newsletters, papers, magazines i should get into. but most places are expensive and i'm trying to find a specific target market in certain circumstances.
so that's that for advertising. word of mouth is great. i also have cards at a couple of other stores around town where i know the owners.
and aside from that there's the fun taxes, business tax crap that everyone has to deal with. they finally sent me my sales tax number in the mail today! woo hoo!

Congrats on getting another job today! You really are starting out the best way... just getting your name around locally. Photography, being mostly a geographically limiting business, is always best promoted by word of mouth. My sister got married last summer, and she used the same photographer as her best friend, who used the same photographer as a friend of hers. As funny as it sounds, networking yourself as a good photographer is probably more effective than trying to sell your photographs to prove you're a good photographer. As for further advertising, I think you're on the right track. Just try to think where potential clients would go, and get your cards there. Have you considered starting a website to refer people to as well?

Wow... good advice. I wish I was at the level where people would pay me to do photography... but I'm still learning. Do you have examples of your pictures, photolizard? You should let us see some of your work! Post some pictures for us!

I've been really happy with RealWebHost.net. Their prices are quite reasonable, too. You can also upload photos here in the Critiques Corner as well.
