These days it’s quite common for photographers to be promoting to and working in multiple markets in order to maximize their exposure and their earning potential. And since you’re working hard on expanding your brand and income, is there a right or a wrong way to approach each different market, or can your ‘brand’ simply speak for itself?

Continuing on from the successes of her previous panels, Louisa invites you to hear all of the must-have and key tips when it comes to managing multiple markets, websites, and creating appropriate marketing plans. Whether you’re a commercial photographer looking to cross over into fine art, or an editorial photographer who wants to shoot weddings, or whatever areas you’re looking to expand into, this discussion is for everybody!

Whether you shoot advertising, editorial, fine art or weddings, your Web site is one of the most important tools for showcasing your work and visual brand. If it’s annoying or difficult to navigate, potential clients will move on to the next. “Is it all about the images, or does my branding really matter?” you may ask. “How do I separate myself from the crowd?”

This dynamic panel of advertising and editorial photo buyers will offer valuable insights and discussion points about what makes a successful Web site to help refine your brand, streamline your promotions and take your Internet presence to a higher level. Panelists will share their self-promotional do’s and don’ts and weigh in on new and buzzworthy ways to “sell” yourself through social networks.

The discussion will culminate with a “live critique” using the Web sites of willing audience members—this is your chance to get candid, constructive feedback on your own site!

ChatterLog October 2009

Greetings everyone and welcome to the October Chatterbulletin!  This is typically a busy month, especially here in New York in the photo world. And although we may see some recession-sensitive “cutbacks” during Expo week this year, there is still a lot to cover. So make sure you scroll all the way down to see everything that is going on. I decided to make this month’s theme “success.”

Success

So why talk about success? What does success mean exactly? Success will mean different things for different people. In the money-driven world we live in today success is largely judged as financial. But for a photographer, success could mean finally finishing up that new website, or winning an award in a national contest, or maybe you just secured a big ad campaign? Perhaps you just licensed your first stock image or participated in a fine art gallery show. Whatever your definition of success may be and wherever you are in your career – there is a common thread that binds all of these success stories together. That thread is made from a positive attitude, hard work and commitment and this month’s clients all reflect these attributes in some way or another.

The dictionary definition of the word success is “outcome” or “result” – we may not always reach the outcome we desire, but if we do not put our best efforts forward, then success is going to be even harder or perhaps impossible to attain. These are all photographers who have stayed the course, and found a way to continue expressing their photographic passion, even when the going was tough. All of them have spent the time and money required to market them selves consistently so that they have seen tangible results and their efforts rewarded. It is also interesting to note that these are all photographers who have stayed in touch with me and continued to ask for help, if and when they needed it. It is important to remember that you do not have to, nor can you, do it all by yourself. So remember to ask for help.

First up is Chris Crisman, whose “rocket boy” image is featured on this year’s cover of the Photo Plus Expo Seminar Program. Chris’ business continues to grow steadily and his assignments have evolved from music and editorial to also include major advertising assignments as well. Next we have Stephen Flint, who like Chris, is starting to see the “fruits of his marketing labors” after revamping his website and promoting regularly to his targeted mailing lists. And then we have Michelle Kawka, who has been continuing to grow ever since we met. She started by working for the local newspaper and has built her image library while developing her craft. Her recent success story was receiving placement in the ASMP Annual Best of Issue for her project “Portrait of Queens, NY.”

It is stories like these, no matter how big or small, that are rewarding and have me gushing like a proud parent. I feel good in the knowledge that I have helped them on their journey somehow. And most of all, it is a testament to their having a good mind-set, with an ongoing determination and strong work ethic. Speaking of which, I really must get to that filing…

Speaking of Success, Congrats to one of my newer clients, Lauren Grabelle!
The American Kennel Club (AKC) has featured her on the cover of it’s latest publication and has included a six page article on her and professional dog photography.
