Time for Change
Today hit me like a ton of bricks. Here’s why:
I just found out that I don’t exist and it’s getting worse. I have to ask myself, What am I doing? Well, I thought I’ll get a nice flash website, an awesome blog, a smugmug page, a facebook page, a twitter account, and on and on and on. Why? Because that’s what all photographers need right? We need social media to stay current and capture our clients. Well, I have them all and guess what? Clients aren’t finding me. I post to my blog every day, I twitter a lot(not lately thought), I keep updating facebook. I’m doing everything that I’m “told” to, but I’m not getting the results. My first step was, go to Grader and find out why. Now, most people wouldn’t want to show how bad they’re doing, but I do. This is my testament to all the budding photographers out there.
So I turned to my good buddy David Schultz, who is a web guru to find out why. So he and I went back and forth through email and it came down to the article I posted above.
I have lots of work to do! Which is now represented in my picture below. I’m changing. I’m no longer saying I’m a Wedding Photographer and doing the blah blah blah that everyone says you have to do. Yes, I love Weddings, I want to shoot YOUR wedding and that’s what I want to do in life, but now I’m going to be really letting you into my world. My blog is now going to follow my trials and tribulations of making it as a photographer, 9-5er and father/husband. It’s going to be a reality show in a blog. You can help shape this blog. I want your input and feedback and I’ll be reaching out to you Mr & Mrs Internet. We have until Dec 31st to turn this thing around.
