On January 1st, 2020, I will be making one of the most significant changes to my career! I want to make sure that you all come along this journey with me, and I know that the word journey is an overused and over dramatised cliche.
I have decided to make the leap from digital marketing to becoming a freelance professional photographer and videographer. I think that if I do not try to make this work now, I will never do so. I will use this blog, youtube and Instagram to tell my story, recording all the ups and downs.
I know that times are going to be tough in getting started, but I do believe that this will be one of the most significant rewards for my family and me, I know that I have their support, which helps tremendously. I am under no illusion that there is a lot of competition out there. I need to try and build this business into something that creates great work, and I don’t need any permission to do so. I believe that you have to do what brings joy as well as being sensible about it.
I am going to become more active on this blog over the coming weeks and use this blog as a journal. I want to keep these blog short and easy to read.
As 2020 what will I be focusing on?
I will be focusing all sorts of photography and video, I am going against the grain and not concentrate on a single niche that a lot of other photographers are doing. In 2020 this will show me what I can focus on in 2021 because trying to do a unique niche as a part-time photographer will never happen.
Here are the areas that I will be working on:
Commercial Photo & Video - This will be working with corporate companies doing headshots and corporate video.
Wedding Photo & Video - I offer a hybrid photo & video service to wedding couples.
Family Photo - These will be slots booked for families to do family photos
Product Photo & Video - This will be working with companies that want to showcase their products.
I will get a blog out every Sunday so that you all have something to read and as I progress there will video included in the blogs. I am busy working out my schedule on how I want to deliver the video.
Well, what can I say, we are days away for the 1st, and it is getting real and so looking forward to the next chapter of my life.
Thank you for taking the time to read this!
