I travel a lot for photoshoots, conferences, workshops and vacation. Whenever I visit a city, I make a point to reach out to others in that city that I know through forums or past events like Imaging and WPPI and see them while I’m there. Over the past 5 years, these networks have been so valuable to me!
This week I’m in Denver, so I had meetings planned over meals with three other Boudoir photographers, along with a meet up one night so I could see 10 more photographer friends, I toured my lab (more on that soon!).
All in all, an amazingly productive week! Photography can be a lonely business. We don’t have coworkers. So be sure to network with the ones in your area – but get out and meet others everywhere you go! You never know what insight they may share that might help you along!
