Peo­ple skills

NPhoto - - Nikopedia -

In ad­di­tion to possessing solid pho­to­graphic skills, in or­der to make your wed­ding pho­tog­ra­phy busi­ness a suc­cess you’ll need to be able to deal suc­cess­fully with all sorts of peo­ple. First you’ll need to sell your pho­to­graphic ser­vices suc­cess­fully, so you may need to brush up on your sales and mar­ket­ing skills. Then you’ll

need to deal with the de­mands of clients both be­fore and af­ter the wed­ding. This is of­ten sim­ply a case of making sure that you com­mu­ni­cate clearly what they should ex­pect of you as their pho­tog­ra­pher, and when to ex­pect the fi­nal im­ages or prints to be sup­plied. Fi­nally, you will of­ten have to take con­trol of the wed­ding when it’s time to get your pho­tos. This last skill can take some time to mas­ter, as it in­volves be­ing able to cor­ral the guests when you need them for group shots, but also know­ing when to take a back seat, as you don’t want to take over the day.

It’s im­por­tant to have some great, up-to-date im­ages in your port­fo­lio be­fore you start out on your own, as you need ap­peal­ing pho­tos to at­tract new clients
