Last night I was invited to attend the grand opening of Art Miami and Photo Miami (art-miami.com) with an my art dealer BFF. Art Miami is the city's longest-running contemporary art fair and showcases a wide variety of art from over 100 leading international art galleries. As a former art historian, I am truly moved by being around these incredible collections, and meeting the artists, gallery owners and collectors. What a fantastic experience....
I took my point-and-shoot camera along so I wouldn't forget some of my favorite pieces. I think I loved this Vincent Van Gogh of thread spools the most.
Where do you get inspired?
Do you feel overworked and underpaid?
Does it pain you to deliver digital images...but no album or wall portraits?
Do you believe in tangible products, but don't think your market can support higher priced items?
If you answered "yes" to any of the above, you're not alone and there IS a solution: In-Person Sales. There's no limit to how much more money you can make by providing IPS instead of online sales or shoot & burn. Or how many hours you'll save because you'll be able to shoot fewer sessions to generate the same revenue. Or how many hours of sleep you'll get because you won't be worrying about money.
