9. How did you find out about the FCA? I am a member for one year now. My first time I’ve read something from Charlie was a post about attendance on a wedding fair. And then I followed her work….
10. What does the FCA mean to you and how has it helped you grow your business? It is such a support to have this group and the mentoring from Charlie. It took my business on a whole new level. It made me realize that I just need do work on my dreams and to get out of my comfort zone!
11. What are some good tips for upcoming photographers that are trying
to get started in the business? Find your own voice. Make your self countable.
You can never fail, it is just the circle of learn and grow!
12. Be creative and let your juices flow. The whole job is fun. I think as a self-employed photographer you need to live photographer, breath photography and dream about photography. I cannot imagine one single day; I haven’t done a photo over the last 12 years. And there are so many ideas in my head. Spinning around making me crazy. It is hard work to build a business, so you really need to be passionate about it over everything else. Otherwise you will not stand the pressure.
If you liked this one we have another talented photographer scheduled for next week!
