The “walk-don’t-run” approach I have taken to my business is a recipe for both navel-gazing and star-gazing, but keeping a business afloat requires keeping at least one foot on the ground and my eyes straight ahead when I’m driving.
There comes a point in everyone’s life where they stop “making do” and start “doing.” I think I have reached that point – or at least another level on getting to that point, and I’ve got another gear in my “go.”
After this summer full of shooting and processing (I re-shot most of my portfolio this year!), I have FINALLY nailed my workflow down – for whatever equipment I’m using! – and I now have a really good idea WHY I shoot WHAT I shoot, as well as HOW to achieve the results I want. I can now describe my style to you, instead of asking you to describe it to me; I know where I want to go as I move forward.
This week, however, I discovered that I need a particular type of portfolio image that I don’t have because of the types of sessions I’ve been doing, and I am very much in need of two or three new models (preferably adults – but male or female) for a few portrait sessions shot with a simple, fine art style.
I can take one session in Northern Virginia at the end of this month, and two here in Charleston over the next couple of weeks. If you are interested, just drop me an email and we can talk some significantly-reduced pricing (read: Christmas gifts for family?) for you letting me practice my art on you.
