How to Get Your First Client | Vanessa Joy


Whether you're searching for your first client or have been booked solid for years, remember that you're always on an interview in the photography industry. Never take a stream of steady work for granted. What's here today could be gone tomorrow if you get lazy and stop delivering quality service. Even if you know a particular client or have worked with them in the past, you should always be aiming to impress them not just with beautiful photographs, but with outstanding customer service as well. By continually promoting your business, networking with the folks you know and those on social media, and trusting your instincts along the way, you'll have your first client (and many more) in no time!
