Learn how to network your way into the wedding photography industry.
If you are not the type of person who likes to speak up in public or who likes to talk to strangers without preamble, you will still need to learn how to network as much as possible. This is crucial to you and to the growth of your wedding photography career. You need to practice the way that you are able to pitch yourself in front of the mirror. You need to get over any anxieties that you may have when it comes to networking and slowly work your way in as much as possible. You don’t have to start with anything outrageous or anything that is too drastic. You can just start things out slow.
Print out a bunch of great looking business cards that say something about your wedding photography services.
Make a habit out of giving out your business cards whenever you get a chance to do so. Give out your business cards during the wedding photography shoots that you cover so that people will more or less have something to remember you by and so that they will know how to contact you or where to look for you in case they have any need for you and for your wedding photography services. Constantly keep in touch with the rest of the other service vendors that you may happen to come across or work with during the wedding photography shoots that you work in and reach out to them as much as possible. The most effective way to be able to go ahead and do it would be to send them an email advising them that you have featured them in your wedding photography blog. You should have your second shooter go around collecting their contact info and at the same time disseminate your contact info as well during the wedding photography shoot.
Make it a point to really ask the rest of the other wedding photographers in the wedding photography community to go ahead and ask for any feedback that they might be able to more or less give out to you. Take this time to really learn about who you are and what point you are in in your alternative wedding photography career.
Don’t easily fold in to criticisms.
You should use this to motivate yourself to improve all the more and not to be discouraged instead. Build yourself up as much as possible coming from the comments as well as the rest of the info that you are able to hear from the assessments of your fellow wedding photography professionals. There will always be some room for you to basically improve on in your wedding photography career.
Don’t be complacent with what you know or with what you have now.
Make it your constant journey to really improve yourself and to get better and better at what you do when it all comes down to it. Have a bunch of short term goals related to your wedding photography skills and constantly keep things in check as much as possible.
