PROPERLY UTILIZE NETWORKING

Everyone is always talking about how you need to be on all the social networks. Including me! I just did it, like two sections ago. Sure, be on Instagram (almost too obvious for photography, right?), be on Twitter, be on TikTok, be on Facebook, and LinkedIn and MySpace. Okay, maybe not that last one. But social networking isn't just about sitting behind a computer desk typing at your friends and followers. It's about, well, being social. The best way to make important connections is through industry events. Events like ShutterFest or countless other photography events that go on all over the world. On social media, you don't know who you are connecting with. At industry events, you know you are meeting people in the industry that you are trying to become known in. And you aren’t just meeting colleagues, you are meeting people from large brands and big companies. People from other creative industries that are related to photography. The type of people who may need your services or know someone who does. You can't make yourself known if you don't put yourself out there. So go out, have some fun, and meet some people who can help you further your career.
