So many things have changed and some many new clients this year. I can tell that 2017 is going to be even greater and full of more great adventures. Been away from the keyboard for a bit. So many things going on over the past months that I haven’t had time to write.
Where do I start….Renewing Contracts/Clients!! So we’re starting negotiations again for the Ford work and I can’t wait till we get it nailed down and start the shooting. While talking to them I let them know that we could go the studio route if they wanted but both of them agreed that it wouldn’t be what they were wanting to reflect their work. So I’m happy to see that there are clients that are true to the art and want to keep with traditional photography. More to come on that topic in the near future. Another client contacted me today and they’d like me shoot some of their local vehicles to use in their social media. This is the kind of work that I’m loving. I search for companies that need some good photos to show off their work. So it’s nice to see that I’m coming up as a commercial photographer in the Dallas area, means I’m doing it right.
On the other side of my photography, I think I’m going to quit doing portraits and weddings. I’m not getting the return that my business needs to continue to grow. I love doing the work but I’m not getting a large return like I am with the other work. I’ll continue to shoot for close friends and family but won’t advertise it as work I do. So if you were lucky enough to have me photography you, consider yourself some of the lucky few.
Goals for the year
Land a $10,000+ contract
Photograph for a non-automotive magazine
Open a studio for car photography
Featured in/on a magazine or site for my work
So I hope everyone had a great 2016 and hope that you all have a great 2017!!
