My first venture into owning a website.
It has been long coming but finally, I took the dive and managed to get myself a website to host my galleries. For future work with clients, this website will allow me to upload images for customer proofing before purchasing or editing. You purchase prints straight from this website if we did not include prints or rights to digital file in the photography package chosen by the client.
I am pretty excited to finally get this site going. It will expand as time goes by (obviously) so keep checking up for updated galleries or subscribe to my blog to get the latest news on new photo shoots. Exciting things are happening on my end and I can't wait to share what I got to offer with all of you.
Please refer people to this site if you know someone in need of photography, you can click on the "contact" link and email me any requests.
My entrepreneurship is just kicking off, so take advantage of my super low rates. I can beat any price, just promise you will refer me to your friends and family if you like my work and your final product.
Prices are not yet set on my site because I want to be able to work with budgets, within a reasonable amount. People don't realize how much work is put into photography, all they see is the photographer clicking a button, but photography involves a TON more than that.
Preparation for photo shoots could be stressful because I want to get the session right, I only get one shot at capturing a moment and I like to make it count. During the shoot there is so much to know and get right in order for the images to look professional. Lighting is taken into consideration whether it is artificial or natural light. Equipment malfunctions can always occur during a session and could ruin a shoot if you are not prepared. Photography equipment is not cheap or simple to operate, so that needs to be taken into consideration. We as photographers dont just click the shutter button and expect a good picture to come out. The settings have to be right and most of the time we are shooting in FULL MANUAL mode, which is not easy to operate if you do not understand what is involved in getting a good exposure on a picture.
Last, but not least, is post processing. An image straight out of a camera can look gorgeous, but for the most part, a true masterpiece is created after the image has been uploaded to the editing machine (computer now a days). There can be more time spent in post processing than anything else that was involved during the photo shoot. Late nights of working with a computer getting all the images just right, or simply just combing through hundreds of pictures and sifting out the ones that are similar but not quite as good as the next one.
This is why photography is expensive, it is truly an art form and you need to know what you are doing or else you can really mess up a picture. Be mindful of all the work that goes into photography because it is a lot of work and knowledge that goes into it.
Now, for the fun part. Let's get this party started! I can't wait for this venture to blossom and hopefully one day dedicate all my working ours to photography and only work doing what I love.
Till next time...
