It Takes More Than Moxie...
Updated: Nov 25, 2020
So you're a photographer now... so is everyone else these days! Go find a "Boomer" and they will tell you stories about the good-old-days when having a picture taken was a relatively rare, time consuming and expensive proposition. Back in the day, owning a decent camera was unusual, knowing how to use it was a truly arduous project. Photography was difficult and even a little "exclusive" - the average person went to someplace like Sears or Olan Mills or maybe they waited for a church directory to have family photos taken and the results were often less than spectacular..
Today is a very different time...
Nearly everybody is walking around with a 12 megapixel camera (masquerading as a phone) in their pocket and the cost of a DSLR has continued to drop while their capabilities have only improved. Get on Facebook and look for a photographer - holy cow! Google "photographer" - I came up with "About 6,240,000,000 results (1.06 seconds)" so there's plenty of options out there for anyone who's looking. With so many photographers, what can you do to stand out from the crowd?
Why are you a photographer?
You probably started photography to:
Express your creativity
Bring some joy into the world
Start your own business
Earn some extra money
Create something beautiful
You've probably found that it's more difficult than it would appear to do those things and there's a constant "race to the bottom" for pricing that can be very demoralizing.
