Things You Should Be Doing When Booking Photography Clients

You can be proficient with a camera and lighting and have a strong creative voice, but to find success as a professional photographer takes strong business skills as well. If that is something you are new to and you would like to improve, check out this great video tutorial that will give you some helpful advice for the process of booking new clients to help you increase your chances of landing the job. 

Coming to you from Kayleigh June, this excellent video tutorial details some important advice for booking photography clients. If I had to give advice to someone looking to increase their success rate in booking clients, it would be to communicate regularly. A lot of people can be slow to answer calls or emails, and in the internet age, people's expectations are often of efficient replies. In fact, people will often go with the photographer who simply replies to them first, so be sure you are checking and responding to emails and messages several times a day. Check out the video above for the full rundown from June.
