It's been a good crazy busy motivational year so far, & I am loving it!
This new year I've taken on a challenge to do 1 photoshoot a week.
I keep referring it as "52." Lucky 52. Hopeful 52. 52 Faces. 52 adventures.
52 stories to be told through my lens.
52 blogs about the trials and tribulations I will be going through to get to those 52!
It is going to push me to the limit and I am (obviously) more than thrilled about it.
The year started with a BANG! A bang of (just)one unfortunate event.
And it made me (re)learn some of the photography business basics such as
taking deposits for photoshoots to ensure that the date and shoot are still happening.
I did have my first photoshoot planned and scheduled and in my head it was happening but unfortunately the shoot had to be canceled due to lack of communication
(half on my part, lesson #2) and change of traveling plans for my client.
This time of year is always hard...
Luckily I did have another shoot planned this same weekend. So I still got my 1st shoot in!
Now for the rest of the 52..
The big question here is how am I going to do this?
I will try to work 2-4 weeks in advance.
Honoring my paid clients first.
I've composed a list of names for people willing to be my model and muse.
I will pick a name at random.
You can call these TFP, because they are!
All with my ideas, and only one look. but...
If you would like more looks then great! It will be at an additional cost.
This way I get some cool ideas materialized, keep a solid work flow,
and have the opportunity of creating moments, relationships, & art.
I love this passion of mine, and I have to create an opportunity for me to do what I want while keeping the photography industry at bay. As an artist~ its hard. We have to get paid. We are worth it. It's important to keep the respect of the industry and of your own personal artistry in tact.
I kept my rates too competitive.
It has taken me a long time to know my worth, but now
I know my worth.
Price page up later this week.*
Photoshoot of week 1 will be up later this week too. **
Times are good. Times are changing. Time is now. Now to fuel that passion that burns so brightly. Cheers to 2019. Cheers to me! Cheers to photographY! Cheers to YOU!
