marketing and portfolio visits
I highly recommend “meetings and portfolios, fantastic forgotten tools” in the March/April Picture Magazine even though half of it is a Q & A with me. It’s a really good read, check it out.
One of my favorites:
Would you recommend to other emerging photographers to follow in your footsteps- to go after meetings in other cities right out of the chute?
A- If you’ve spent the time to plan everything out, have a solid portfolio book, a website and your work is great then absolutely. To me first impressions are everything. You wouldn’t show up for a first date poorly dressed with fast-food wrappers scattered throughout your car would you? It’s the same thing with the agencies; don’t show up until you’re prepared and confident in what you’re doing.
