One of the (many) great suggestions I came away with from Kevin Kubota’s Digital Photography Bootcamp was to put myself in Portfolio Building mode. Kevin and Clare suggested I follow Dane Sanders’ approach, which was to get out there and really start shooting! So, I took their advice and offered portrait sessions for free along with discounted prints and products.
It’s been an amazing experience. It’s definitely not something a photographer can do for the long haul if they want to stay in business, however, I do believe this has been a win/win experience for me and my clients. Honestly, it’s been a ton of fun, too. These families have been amazing!
Here are a few photos from some December sessions.
Oh, and before I forget, I read this great blog post today on Going Pro – Educating the Masses: Why Helping Others Learn Won’t Kill Your Business. There are so many great resources out there and a lot of generous photographers who share their insights and some great information. It’s a great motivator to pay it forward.
In order to give myself a little more time to work on the business end of things, I will offer this portfolio building offer through February. There are a few sessions available, so if you’re interested, I’d love to hear from you!
