      A question I’ve had from a friend is how I find clients. The answer is through business pitches. In simpler terms, it means reaching out to people I want to work with, hello dream clients! Some photographers are well established in their communities (likely working and building relationships for years) with referrals and […]

Every person I know will sometimes get stuck, or not feeling particularly creative for a particular time. It can be a day, a week, a month or longer. From scrolling feeds, it seems like some of us are falling into a winter blues. Maybe it’s because we’re not as busy in the slow season.  We […]
