In today’s world we are so lucky to have so much information around us! The big question now is: which ones of all the millions of websites are you going to visit? When I started out as a photographer, I learned so much, just by reading other photographer’s blogs, visiting forums and tutorial sites.
This post is for all the photographers that have been sending in their questions the past few months. Firstly, super big apologies *with some puppy eyes* from my side. I’ve been wanting to answer them for such a long time, but I have finally managed to sort them out according to the areas of interest and translating all the Afrikaans ones into English :) I’ll now be posting up Q & A posts with one theme running through. This week’s Q & A is all about lighting.
Yesterday was probably the worst day in my career so far! I felt my heart race and I felt like a heart attack was right on my heels, I felt numb and every thing stood still. But thank the Lord all worked out well.
I recently received many questions about my new website. Today you can watch a video that iaan made (from PlusPlusMinus Design & Development) to explain how the site works.
Carmen, Carla & Kerry asked very similar questions, so I’ve made up a combined question and hopefully a constructive answer to all of you :)
“I want to ask you a few questions on how you got started. How do you start to get clients? What kind of advertising would you suggest? Did you use any advertising or is it all word of mouth? How do you differentiate yourself from all the other photographers out there?”
I love receiving questions from photographers, because it actually makes me think about what I’m doing, why I’m doing it and how I’m doing it. So I thought I’d answer them om the blog so that more people can benefit from them.
The past few months I’ve been receiving quite allot of emails form photographers around the world. I always try and answer everyone, but I’ve realized many of them have the same questions. So instead of answering their mails one by one, I’ve decided to answer them on the blog. In this way more people can benefit form the answers. Please remember that I receive many emails per week and I might not be able to answer everyones questions, but I promise to answer as many as possible.
