Learn video and photo
This is your sign to learn video as a photographer!
Have multiple skill sets
Stop running the rat race like every one else and do this that create your own races!
If you follow Facebook groups- you’ll see 100 photographers post for a job, but I could barely find ANYONE to photograph and video a surprise engagement… everyone I asked was so out of their budget or lack of audio equipment.
If you are a photographer Learn how to do video! Not only upsell your own value- but provide a service that not a lot of people can do!
There might be a million photographers in a town- but very few video and photo artists!
Combine that with graphic design and marketing skills - and you will stay busy ALL year and NEVER have an off-season!
