Troy Photography Studio Update

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.

Coming Soon — Troy Photography Studio

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!

Why I Attended The Portrait Masters Conference

One rather unique piece to this conference was the ample time we had to shoot. No matter your skill level, there’s always something to learn as a photographer. Sue’s team had set up dozens of shooting areas with styled models and assistants, ready to help with posing. It was a great opportunity to try out new techniques, perfect posing guidance, and just build confidence for the newer photographers.
