Each week, we ask the public to submit a question to have answered in our segment called "Fstoppers Answers". Last week we asked “When Did You Make the Jump to Full Time Pro?”. This week, we asked the staff of Fstoppers "How Did You Approach Your First Agency/Client?"
Aside from these answers, Fstoppers own Julia Kuzmenko sat down with fellow Staff Writer and Retoucher Pratik Naik. During their talk, they discuss working in the industry, and touch base on building a client base as a retoucher.
As always, if you have a question you'd like us to answer, feel free to ask it in the comments below. Also, feel free to share your experiences with finding your first clients in the comments.
Peter, what's up with your profile pic? Seems a bit pompous and pretentious..
Thanks Zach! Great question and a great range of answers!
Ofcourse. We need to get a question or two that you can answer....since you're everyones favorite writer :-)
Haha, am I?! Okay!
I have been thinking a lot recently about people I work with and how much my own success in my craft and business depends on the other creative professionals I collaborate with. Ask me a question, so I can praise them, they really deserve it!
And other photographers must know that they should cherish, love and spoil their creative "partners in crime" - models, makeup artists, hair stylists and everyone who helps them create their art :)
Exactly the kind of input that I was trying to get from photographers around me. Thank you!!
Loved the interview! You guys are awesome!
Great tips and information! As a nature and macro photographer, any tips for finding clients? I guess I'm not even sure who my client base would be or how to find them.
