I love motorcycling. It’s like a disease. But NOT that the big ‘ol biker riding in a huge condo-on-wheels with monkey bars style of riding.
I’m more in it for the fun and adventure. That’s me in the image above, riding across Canada summer of 2008 heading to Alaska.
I’m more of a “…get on my 650, point the wheels to Alaska, and crank your right hand….let’s go!”
Monday last I bonded over biking with a dude at Toastmasters. He had brought up his love for bikes in a speech.
So, we bonded over bikes, and our preferred rides. We had a lot in common. This became apparent when he said:
“Load the packsack, strap it to the tank, spare pair of underwear and two pairs of socks.”
I got it.
This idea reminds me of what it takes to run a photography business, and where I get my best ideas. And how simple it really is.
Besides living and dying by the marketing sword, I get my very best ideas, strategies, inspirations and focus from other photographers.
So, tonight, grab a spare pair and join Nancy Tillberg and myself as we chat it up during a frontline webinar.
Nancy will be talking about:
*Dance schools for added income.
*Boutique Volume (this is a pretty cool topic and relevant to the type of photos currently being sold in the industry. I focus on dance but it can apply to hockey or gymnastics as well)
*Posing dancers for sales.
*Online vs traditional sales vs in person. (very short but can be worked into the webinar if you want. It’s already a part of boutique volume.)
*Her personal beliefs and experience in diversification
*Marketing & shooting at the market … high traffic marketing (I have a satellite studio at our local Country (farmers) market and get a very large part of my business from this venue. )
*Using cell phone photography to boost the business. I currently give workshops in cell phone photography and how peeps can take better pictures using them. I also touch on what you can’t do well with a phone and why a pro should take the most precious memories. I sell accessories for cell phone cameras at my market location. This is cool because I can build relationships and friendships, sell product, and maybe even book a session.
