Why You'll Love Portfolio Building (And What It Is)
1. Deals, Baby! When a photographer is building her portfolio, you can score amazing deals that will likely never be available again once her portfolio is built and she is up and running. Even though photographers are artists, many of us are savvy business people with experience in the corporate world and a solid business plan. The portfolio building phase is just that, a phase designed to help launch our business to where we would eventually like to take it. Take advantage of those bargains while you can!
2. Brand Spankin'-New Equipment If there is one thing photographers who are setting out starting a business have, it is new equipment. We know that we are entering a sea filled with talented photographers and we want to hit the ground running. What does that mean? It means that anyone who is serious about setting up a photography business has taken the step to invest in their future with the best possible equipment they can afford. That photographer with 20 years experience? She might take great photos, but technology moves fast! If she is using dated equipment, your photos may not be all they could be.
3. One Word: Pinworthy Before launching our business, you can bet on the fact that we have spent HOURS, DAYS, WEEKS, MONTHS, or even YEARS researching. We have pin after pin of the most beautiful photos, the best poses, the newest techniques to capture that perfect glow of the afternoon sun. Boho chic? Vintage styled mini sessions? You got it. We’ve had the time to devote to stay current and on-trend that seasoned photographers may not have.
4. Behind the Scenes Experience Speaking of those pinworthy styles and techniques, you wouldn’t think that we would try them for the FIRST time when asking you to share your valuable time with us, would you? ABSOLUTELY NOT! Our greatest desire is for your photos to be beautiful and perfect, and we want the experience to be smooth. We have dragged our husbands, friends, pets, and children along to PRACTICE every single location, setting, and pose, and scenario that we can POSSIBLY think of so that we know we are prepared to consistently get the perfect photo every time.
5. Customer Service Last but not least is customer service. We have created our business plan, researched the latest trends until our computers crashed, and practiced till the cows came home, but the only thing we haven’t had the opportunity to prove to our perfectionist selves and to the world is that we can make a customer truly happy. With everything on the line and our business DEPENDING on client happiness, we ave a plan to make sure you are happy and we are bouncing off the walls excited to set it loose. NO ONE will fall over themselves more to make you happy than a new photographer.
