Looking to make your photography business profitable + sustainable? Looking to have the photography business of your dreams? Today, I’m giving you 3 steps to do just that.
You, as a photographer, have to niche in something. I don’t want to come to your Instagram account & hear that you do everything. Clients will not think you’re an expert, they will think you’re simply dabbling in photography and that you’re just in it for the money.
You need to be known for some type of photography. Not a lot of types. Not a few types. ONE. You have to start there or you’re going to be very disappointed in yourself.
Side note: This will change.
You will likely pivot at least once during your career.
Now, pick ONE.
Don’t just go with your gut or your heart feeling.
Ask yourself: What can I realistically show up for in this season of my life?
You can’t just look at the photography side of things…
You have to consider everything. This includes setting boundaries.
Just because you said, “okay, Brooke, I’m going to be the go-to newborn photographer”, does not mean that your target market is not just any pregnant mom/new mom with a newborn, it’s time to dig deep.
There are so many variables here:
These two clients are two completely different target markets.
Add to these two different style types, you’ve also got to think about whether you are targeting people that want to come to you or people that are on a higher end where they want you to go to their home.
Dig into WHO is your target market.
Once you’ve nailed down your niche, think about all the sessions you’ve had in the past in this particular niche and ask yourself these questions:
You will never be able to master this step if you don’t do step one & two.
The marketing doesn’t matter if you don’t nail down a niche & who you’re serving.
Ask yourself where you can show up, how can you show up for them?
How are you going to communicate with your audience?
You have to remember that your clientele have values, preferences and style. It’s up to YOU to figure out who they are & how you can speak to them and get them on your calendar.
