Seemed fitting for a wedding photographer right?
Ive been struggling with what to do with my site for quite a while now. While I love having it, its not always fun to post sessions to it when there is not any way for me to know if I even have an audience. And to be honest, it seemed as though posting was more about building my online gallery for potential clients rather than for the clients I photographed. By the time I blogged, they had already viewed the entire session and already had their favorites posted and shared on social media…therefore defeating the whole purpose of sneak peek blogging anyway.
So that got me thinking. I LOVED my online photography workshop I held earlier this year! It was so wonderful meeting and chatting daily with new people who wanted to learn more about the camera they already had. However, at the same time…good things never go without a little backlash right? Keep in mind my course was 100% FREE….The course did nothing to personally benefit myself, however I had my fair share of complaints. So before you jump on this ride with me, please note that this is NOT a “how to become a professional photographer course” neither is it a “email me telling me you already know this kind of stuff course” Its solely a way of people (NON PROFESSIONALS) to connect and share ideas and small tutorials. Okay, now that we have that out of the way…let me tell you what my next venture with this is going to be. This is going to be a place for us to connect and share….Ill post a few of my favs from sessions and we can learn a little bit along the way. No class start date. No homework or worrying because you missed a video. This is just going to be mass learning and short little tutorials. I hope you enjoy! I’ll be pairing up with other bloggers, business professionals as well as boutiques for small giveaways and guest blogging and tutorials from everything from photography, DIY and beyond. Please sign up for my newsletter and subscribe to my blog! Im glad you are here….Lets get our learning on because God knows I have a few things to learn myself.
So here we go…..
Something Old: Me because surely you can teach an old dog new tricks. ….I may learn how to cook during this experience.
Something New: A new way of reaching out to my clients, friends and complete strangers
Something Borrowed: This URL and template because 1.) building a website is hard work ….and 2.) Im cheap and didn’t want to spend any more money.
Something Blue…. Cute Hollis (one of my clients yesterday) next to this blue truck. ….hey, it works right??
Starting on Monday, Ill be posting daily…yes, daily posts. Please comment on the daily blog posts. This will allow us to all interact and discuss future topics as well as questions and concerns about the current topic. Im going to be learning as I go as well…so please be easy on me. Some posts will not have anything to do with photography or DIY at all…..It may just be about life and the day to day struggles we all face. Again, Im excited you are all here and I can’t wait to get back to group learning! As a way of kicking this all off….please comment below with your Name, hobbies as well as where you are from.
