“There are no stupid questions, only stupid people who ask questions.”
I got an email from a photographer friend…it reads:
“I started using Rob Provencher’s pricing model about a year ago. Instead of getting a sitting fee then hoping people would buy I use Rob’s idea, in this case I collect $250 at the time of the shoot. $150 of that is used as a credit towards their purchase.
I get an email yesterday from the daughter in law of a recent family portrait client. She wanted to know if everyone got a $150 credit towards their orders of it was just the mother in law. Yes really.
On a completely unrelated note, marijuana became legal in Canada yesterday.”
Some people ask stupid questions. It’s part of the job, the industry. It happens….
Some tell me the industry is dumbing down. Maybe. Maybe not.
Asking questions is a smart thing. Even though some questions are dumber than others.
Either way, we get to answer our clients deepest darkest desires and educate them. Not get all offended and hopeless.
I never seem to have lost the desire for asking questions. I think it’s in my DNA.
A few days ago I asked Dave Junion a ton of questions. I hope they were smart.
Smart questions get smart answers.
I like answers from real, legit photographers who have real, genuine stories, struggles and successes.
It gives me hope, inspiration and information. It’s real.
That presentation with Dave, and the recent Marketing Mastermind with international famous photographer James Hodgins is HERE for members of the club.
It was good. Very, very good. Dave is not typical in so many ways.
But one thing he is, is, he’s an amazing photographer and has crafted a very successful niche, after a few existential crisis’.
Hey, we all need a good existential crisis once in a while.
