Social Media …
I have been using social media to try and create a following for my work and get my name out there. Its been a slow steady trickle of interest but it has helped me get in contact with a dance tutor who is interested in me photographing lessons and potentially selling prints to the parents of students.
As my ultimate goal is to have an image retouching business I have come to terms with the fact that I will need to do a lot of freelance work before this happens. Living in Cornwall doesn’t present a lot of job opportunities for me so after being approached by someone wanting me to photograph their wedding I offered to do it for free as it will be my first wedding shoot. If all goes well and I enjoy this type of photography I am thinking of doing this to create a form of income after university while I build up contacts and a Image Retouching portfolio.
Other things I need to do:
- Create a business card.
- Figure out a system for selling prints to clients of Becky Dance (How will they veiw and pick images.)
- Finish Editing my first shoot from Becky Dance and ask her to write a testimonial.
- Reaserch into creating a buisness.
- Reaserch into image retouching.
