Some people would say photography is a service, and a personal one at that. For us it is more than that, our clients are letting us into their lives, and trusting us with some special moments. The more we can give them reason to feel comfortable with hiring us, the better.
Photography gives us the opportunity to show who we are, why we are photographers, and what values we can provide to a prospective client. It gives them a look into our motivations and how we treat our client – that information will be important to their decision.
Every day we draw upon limited resources for the things we want in life. We choose what we spend our time on, what we spend our money on, and what we will pay attention to. All three of these give us either greater freedom or impose stricter limits on our lives. What we spend frivolously now we will not have to spend on wiser things, life-giving things, and – for most of us – these three resources are not limitless.
