Last week, I joined SoCal Photog ShootOut to lead a group. I highly recommend attending one. I went a few months ago and got so much out of it. So I was really excited when Hanssie asked if I wanted to lead a group. They have several ones all over the country that take place pretty often. Thanks to Hanssie, Matt and Rob for having me! Rob was the main speaker who inspired me with ways I can better my business. What I talked about was finding the right clients since I seem to attract such fabulous people! It was a good learning experience for me and my type of "leading" which is more like a collaboration. It's the same principle I apply when I shoot my client-friends; I'm inspired by who they are and the kinds of things they like.
I spent much more time talking to photographers (which I take so much out of) and my model than I did shooting, which I feel is an important thing to do. I'm all about getting to know my clients. It helps everyone feel comfortable and get better pictures. I believe it's even more important than being technically good.
But here's few pictures I did take, so this post isn't boring!
This is my model Kristin, who I just adored! I hope I get to work with her again. If you go to SoCal Photog ShootOut you can see tons of other photographer's pictures that turned out so good!
