And as more and more photographers have begun working either exclusively on location (like local parks) or out of their own homes, photo studios have become increasingly hard to find — so the good ones have to be really accommodating.
I traveled to Las Vegas for the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International Conference (WPPI). It’s one of the largest conferences for people photographers. Attendance hovers in the thousands!
Since my last update, the furniture has been delivered and assembled! Yes, I outsourced the furniture assembly. Me spending 3 days fiddling with boxes and instructions doesn’t make a lot of sense.
As a business owner, it’s critical to recognize when it makes sense to outsource. Where possible, I outsource tasks when there’s something else I can be doing to build the business. Remember the idea of opportunity cost from economics? Bookeeping, for example, is a huge mental drain on my energy and time. I can better use that time to generate new business through marketing efforts — blogging, networking or generating social content. Most importantly, that extra time is spent serving my clients, as that’s why they hired me.
What better way to kick off 2019 than to announce my new Troy Photography Studio!
In just a few short weeks, I’ll be moving in. All the details will follow. At the moment, I’m buried in all the planning details. Furniture decisions, space planning, technology considerations, internet access, light stands, backdrops and so many other random little details. Thankfully, my wife got me the most important detail — a coffee maker!
As a psychotherapist for over twenty-one years, I’ve helped a national park full of people to quit smoking, release weight and anxiety. My clients are mostly women and men between the ages of 25 – 55 and teens with support of a parent. My practice is located at 16 ½ and Mound in Sterling Heights, MI.
