Here is the deal! If you head on over to my website (DavidAlexanderPhotography.net) then you can view my portfolio. Better yet you can click on the pictures and view them as full screen slide shows. Like my pictures, comment on them, and most of all tell your friends about them. Hopefully soon I will be done with all the post processing from the past three weeks of shooting (f.y.i. it really messes up your workflow to shoot a whole bunch of pictures and then decide to change your branding, but I am glad that I did it). As soon as I am done with that and with uploading the remaining pictures I have from traveling to MI to the website I will be able to move towards uploading some to Facebook, Google+, Flickr, etc. But until then, Like away on the website. That is what those little buttons are there for, to click on. If you really like my photos, any of them, then I would love it if you visit my Contact page and inquired about buying them. I have a feeling that those lighthouse pictures would make a great large wall print, maybe on canvas (just saying).
So that was my spiel on how I would love to hear what you think about my pictures and hopefully taking the opportunity to hire me to do a shoot for you. I hope you don’t mind, but I may need to do that again from time to time.
I was thinking a lot today on what I could do to make my photography better. I read last night over on parttimephoto.com that it is a great idea to have a Client Check Off List (<– links to that blog post). James Taylor, from Outlaw Photography, put forward a sample list and offered that you copy it and make any addenda you deem necessary. So I promptly did just that. I copied his list over to a word document and read over it. Something occurred to me though. I don’t really know what advice I would give to a potential Client other than what is in his list already. In its defense it is a pretty good list. So I wonder, is there any advice you would want (as someone who has had their portrait made) or would give (as a photographer)?
I will have more questions and insights into what I would like to focus on as I move forward in my photography in future blog posts, but I felt like this was a good place to start. After all you, the client, are the reason for taking these types of photos in the first place. It is all about you and making you look as good as possible so you will be happy with the results of the shoot. Also, I know there are much more qualified photographers than I that can possibly offer insight in to the kind of question I pose here from a professional standpoint. I am going to keep the comment section open on this post, because I really want to hear what advice you have to offer.
Speaking of offers, I have two available now through Square. Both are for 10% off your purchase and they can be used together! You can earn your 10% off my Liking my Facebook Page and by following me on Twitter. I know 10% doesn’t seem like a lot, but when a single big print can cost nearly $200 or more every little bit counts.
No matter what, if you work with me, I am going to help you Take Your Best Shot.
