How to Make the Most of the Wedding Photography Off-Season

In most places in the Northern Hemisphere, wedding photography is in the middle of its seasonal dip, giving photographers a chance to catch their breath and focus on other things for a while. So, what can you do to keep your business well oiled and ready for the next season? This excellent video tutorial will give you some ideas.

Coming to you from Katelyn James, this great video tutorial discusses some ways wedding photographers can get the most out of the off-season. One that I definitely partake in during school breaks and photography downtime is organizing my files. If you are anything like me, you start out with all the best intentions of keeping all your photos, documents, and other files in their proper places, but after a few months of occasionally being in a hurry, not quite knowing where to put something, or forgetting to move things you are working on to an archive when you're done, everything is a mess. I like to take an hour or so every few months to put everything back in its proper place. Maybe I am just a big nerd, but it is quite satisfying to organize my digital life, and it makes working a lot easier as I go forward. Check out the video above for the full rundown from James.
