A new year is upon us. A fresh start, another chance.
What goals do you have pertaining your photography business? Putting the business aspect aside, what about your passion for what you do — how will you allow that to flourish in the coming year?
Many new photographers are surprised to learn just how much business know-how they must possess . . . that no matter how good a photographer you may be, talent is not enough. You need to know how to to get yourself in front of your potential client and run profitably among the “$50 session with free dic” sorts.
But, a few years down the line something may happen . . . some begin to notice how they’ve neglected something. The love of photography that first drew them into the wondrous web of capturing memories. When this is allowed to flounder and burn-out draws near — how can one survive in a craft that depends so much on the heart-connection between a photographer and a fleeting moment?
There will always be another client, another deadline. But there will never be another you. No other photographer can see nor interpret the world quite as you do.
This year, remember your first love.
Remember the thrill of the shutter’s release and the flirtatious dance of light and shadow.
May photography always leave you breathless and wanting for more.
Let this year be the year to flourish.
By the way, the fabulous lace teepee was made by FAAS Design + the ribbon backdrop was made by yours truly.
Until next time!
- Skye, xoxo
