Building Confidence ~ Business Tips for Photographers from The Shoppe Marketeer

text3005

I’ve been dedicating my series of Business Tips for Photographers to SEO hints for the past couple of weeks, and while there is much more to cover, this week seemed like a good week to shift gears a little. One of the first requests I’ve received from a photographer seeking advice is with regards to confidence building. I think we all, especially as small business owners, relate to the challenge of making the leap from hobbyist to pro and building the confidence to perform our best. There is no secret recipe to confidence any more than there is a recipe to business success, but I can share with you a few things I’ve picked up along a way. Perhaps below, you’ll pick up a tidbit that benefits you.

Never compare your beginning to someone else’s middle. One of the most important things to remember as people, much less as professional creatives, is that you can’t compare your work where you are today to the work of someone who’s been doing it for longer or has had more training. Your beginning will always fall short of someone else’s middle. While you are at, remind yourself that THEY are still in the MIDDLE themselves. When create for living there is no end. You will always evolve and improve! You are in different places on the same road. text3003

Be you own biggest fan! Feel like you need a pep talk? Some support? Look in the mirror. Love your own work. Frame if you need to! It’s easy to get up in watching those who inspire us, but don’t get so caught up in your inspirations that you forget to be your OWN biggest fan!

Walk before you run. If you’re anything like me, patience isn’t your strong suit! Is it really anyone’s, though? Don’t we all want to run instead of walk, let alone crawl? Well, it doesn’t work that way, unfortunately, so lace up your walking your walking shoes! Take small weddings until you learn to manage the process or big weddings will be more than you can handle. Shoot mini sessions until you have your workflow down. Build your client list before you take on the overhead of a studio.

Set yourself up for success. Walking before you run sets you up for success! The biggest confidence builder in the entire world is SUCCESS! So set yourself up for it! Spend time really getting to know your own strengths and accepting your weaknesses. Then do what you do well until I do it even better. Be successful at what you’re good at to build up your confidence to take on what you aren’t.

Pat yourself on the back. Don’t feel good just about what you create, but also new things you learn and every new challenge you take on. Pat yourself on the back when a client is happy. Some days, you may just need to give yourself credit to keeping it up when others might have thrown in the towel.

Surround yourself with honest, but positive role models. No one improves without without honest critique, but learn the difference between criticism and critique and surround yourself with the type of role models! We never learn when people just tell what we want to hear. We need to know where we can do better, but just as you need to focus on what you do well to set you up for success, you also need to surround yourselves with the right support network full of those who will tell you what is RIGHT as much as they tell what could be better!

DON’T fake it till you make it. You know that old saying “fake it until you make it”? Well, don’t. People don’t business with businesses. They do business with PEOPLE and people are “faking it” aren’t going to be successful at building trust. Don’t promise more than you can deliver, and don’t exude a false confidence in order to take on more than you are prepared to do and do well. Memories can’t be re-captured! Make sure your clients know you value theirs.

Think POSITIVE! We are what we believe we are, and we become we believe we can be, and… all of those other positive sayings! If you ever need help with this one, join us on Facebook weekly for #feelgoodfriday !

For Art’s Sake Project: A 52 Week Journey ~ Week 3 In A Professional Photographer’s Challenge – Steampunk Surreal Image

For Art’s Sake Project: A 52 Week Journey

Week 3 In A Professional Photographer’s Challenge

Week 3 In A Professional Photographer’s Challenge

So this week I had some fun at a costume shop! I never knew how inspiring and fun those places could be. After searching through rows and rows of interesting outfits, gowns, and costumes, I found a steampunk outfit. I have always loved Steampunk. The textures, the mix of vintage style and industrial machinery.

I also decided that I would start to do some self portraits. I need to shoot something other than my child and arranging models is not the easiest thing when you live in the country and run 2 businesses full time. It just takes a lot longer to shoot yourself! I actually found it quite amusing, running back and forth from the camera. The background I used here is an old clock I bought at the flea market. I added the apple because I wanted a hint of something organic in the shot to balance out the industrial feel, and for the color of course. There is also a bit of the Adam and Eve symbolism with the apple as well.

I think what I love about the surreal is the lack of limits. I am not bound by reality. I have always liked to push the boundaries of what is possible and this allows me to do so. I love environments and landscapes. This allows me to create any environment I want and to put anything I want into it. After so many years of creating what other people wanted, it is no surprise to me that I am landing on the surreal when doing art just for me.

The magic in these surreal images really happens in the final editing. Running an action over all the layers really brings them together. Adding a texture really adds a more illustrative feel to the image which I love. My background is in illustration and painting so I have always tried to blur the lines with my photography a bit. I plan to work on blurring them even more, so stay tuned as I experiment with that some more this week.

I hope you are creating with me. If you are finding yourself stuck please let me know and I will help however I can:)Sometimes we get stuck in life, but we have to just keep moving. Life is movement. Art is the same way I am finding. My inspiration is constantly in motion and I need to just keep creating if I want to keep up with it. If I stop, it seems I fall out of sync with it even more.

 

Keep up with me on Facebook and like my page HERE to follow my journey…

 

See you next week!

Meghan Schirmer - Hi Lisa!! That is a great question! I shot the clock itself and put it in digitally. But the backdrop idea is good too, I did not think of that :)

Lisa - I’ve got a model who wants a steampunk themed shoot so I was really happy to see this today!! You said the background is an old clock? Would you mind to share if the background is digital or did you actually have a drop made from the image of a clock? Thanks so much!
