So with the 30 day challenge coming to a close, some of you may be wondering if I’m going to maintain my blog now. Well, after thinking about all the benefits of doing this, I can’t imagine not “continuing” this wave. Along with that, I’m also going to consider the drawbacks of doing one-a-day, and aim for about 2-4 posts per week.
My friend Jackie brought up a good point yesterday, which is the “reasoning” for doing a blog. I love giving back to the photography community, and while I don’t feel comfortable with the level I’m currently at right now…perhaps someday I will consider the idea of doing workshops for photographers. I feel there’s a big presence of new photographers in the industry already offering workshops, and this leads to a lack of respect from their peers for trying to cash in on “talking the talk” without actually “walking the walk”. If there’s anything I post from a “teacher” standpoint, it’s because I feel like I have enough experience in that particular topic to share my knowledge and help benefit others. There’s definitely a lot more I have to learn about the industry, and I’m excited to share it with you along the way.
With that said – I currently look at this journey as one that I’m embarking upon “with” all of you, and am a student in the industry as well. I’m eager to learn from you all as well, and I can’t encourage enough for you guys to comment & engage in discussion regarding the posts I create. Let’s grow together.
In the weeks to come, here are a few posts that you can look forward to seeing on this blog:
-Travel posts including my trip to Bali and Thailand (will be the next post on Monday)
-More recent work, including weddings & how to make low-budget events look ‘elegant’
-Guest posts from other industry professionals, and some helpful tips for clients
-Inspiration shoots! Taking time in San Diego to create some shoots to promote the kind of clientele I want to work with
-Featured interviews I have done as a result of this 30 day challenge regarding my ideas on marketing
-New videos! I’m currently in the process of perfecting my video promotions, and will be releasing a couple soon with a new image
-New websites, logo, and colors. Changing my online websites to reflect my current style and feature my most recent work
And much more! Looking forward to this coming year and growing along with you guys at the same time!
