When you are a freelance photographer, it is critical to make sure you are reaching as many possible clients in your area; there are many ways to do this but the absolute best way, in my opinion, is word of mouth. Communicating with others isn't always the easiest thing for me, but boy, am I good at composing an email with a lot of detailed words to bore someone who prefers talking to receive information to scratching their eye's out. I, on the other hand, prefer seeing everything in writing. It is more comforting to me because, as previously stated, am not great at communication so being able to re-read the information a few times before I create a response is my go to method if I can. Don't get me wrong. I love meeting people and talking to them face to face but the information doesn't always stick so you may catch me writing notes in my phones while we talk.
I have created a few posts on Craigslist in addition to my other methods and had a young military man ask for corporate style studio head shots. I take pride in being a natural light photographer and not depending on artificial light in most situations, sometimes it just has to be done. So, I used my grandma's kitchen bay window to provide more than enough light for these headshots. I set up my backdrop stand and used a standard queen sized sheet (throw it in the dryer for 20 minutes to get rid of any wrinkles and hard lines), grabbed a stool and we were in business! Check out the photographs below, thanks for reading! Please reach out to me if you have any questions as to how I set up further, gear I used, or if you'd like to book a session!
