Congratulations, you’re a freelance photographer and you’re looking to book some new clients! This is an exciting time in your life and the sheer exhilaration of being your own boss is a wonderful feeling you should hold on to. But first things first, it’s time to make a plan and get your business organized, and strategically positioned for success. Here are a few of the most trusted tips from pro photographers who have experience in the freelance world.
First up: get some kind of photography booking software. For example, BookedIn.com has a very popular version photographers use.The important thing in choosing this software is to ensure it is easy to use. This will be taking care of a lot of the annoying tasks for you in running the business, so don’t be afraid to spend a little bit of money up front to get your bookings in order. This type of software also takes care of a lot of the communication info for your clients, so you won’t need to be emailing people back and forth all day. instead you can just go out there or be in the studio shooting photos all day. No need to have someone answering your phone for you or hire an assistant.
Next up prepare a list of things you must ensure you have in order. Equipment insurance, photography editing software licences, a template for your client booking contracts and agreements, business cards to give out, and finally a portfolio website that can be easily updated. Once you have all of these things sorted out, the next thing on the list is to promote your business and get some clients! To keep the money flowing in, promoting yourself and becoming a good salesperson is key. If you don’t have any clients at all, start by putting out the word to family and friends. Word of mouth advertising can be some of the most powerful in the business.
