What is it?
I like friends, and I especially like friends who like what I do, so when I embarked on becoming the number one choice for boudoir photographer in Southern Alberta, I emailed everyone in the photography industry here in sunny Lethbridge, AB. I wanted their advice, their opinions, their help, their friendship. Who emailed me back? Not a single person, save for one, many months later. You know how they throw the kids in that movie 300 into the wilderness to toughen them up, and teach them how to stand on their own, and then when they're ready they come back to be warriors? That's what the beginning of my photography career was like. I was completely on my own, and had to figure it out.
Boy what I wouldn't have given to have someone to even talk to about my passion, or about how to run a business (of which I had no clue) or who my market is (what's a market?), or how to find those people (where do they exist?), or mistakes to avoid (of which there were plenty). Enter my lovely friend Kim of Kimberly A. Photography.
If this sounds like you, come join us tonight, March 11th, at the Penny Coffee House (331 5th Street South) at 7:30PM to make some new friends, talk business, and have a good time :)
I'll instagram (@katiepahara) a photo of us so you know what we look like, can't wait to see you!
Chow for now!
