I never really intended to be a wedding photographer or cinematographer. I’ve always had a huge love for movies, and the idea of getting into that industry intrigued me, but I didn’t really know where to start. When I graduated with a degree in communications in 2006 and figured I'd just be at a typical 9-5er for the rest of my life. In 2011 a friend posted on Facebook that she needed someone to videotape her wedding ceremony (happening the next day). I borrowed my brother's canon Rebel and that was my first official wedding. A year later I quit my day job and was shooting weddings full time.
Somebody, somewhere has decided that Sunday & Monday are the days that photographers should be taking off. And we agree that everyone needs time with friends & family, time to catch up on Netflix, and time to do the laundry. But is your work schedule working for you?
When you are finished with your photo session or wedding, do you feel a bit like that guy that was recently dragged off the airplane, semi-conscious and bleeding? Because that is basically what it feels like when you’ve lost control of your clients.
The good news is it doesn’t have to be that way. You just need to reclaim the power.
