Investing In

Time and time again you hear about photographers who have spent more and more money on equipment for shooting. There is investment on both sides of the camera. Whether it is equipment, clothes, props, location rental, studio rental, permits, concept creation, and anything else. There is investment. The thing is to invest it into something that works for you and your modeling business. There is that saying” It is not quantity, it is quality.” There is always a debate about this. There always will be as you only get out of an assignment what you put into it.

I say this as you are reading this on the My Modeling Boot Camp website. This is where you can invest in your modeling career. You can work with some people who can assist you in not only the modeling side but, the business side to make sure you are doing what you need to for formatting your modeling business. Remember that you are unique and that there is no cookie cutter format that works. Is it time you booked your consultation?

Just hit the reply button

One of the things that I hate the most is waiting. I hate just sitting there after sending something out and I feel like I am going to win the lottery with a reply.  I always wonder if I have composed the email, text, or message in the manner in which it will be received.

I keep hearing that the biggest thing with some of the photographers and models is that they don’t hit the reply button! It is really easy to do. The funny thing is that most of us watch the persons profile or something and they keep positing but, then they do not reply to the message that was sent. That is very frustrating.

If you get an email, message, or text from someone whom you are not interested in working with. It is the professional thing to do with simply declining the assignment.  You can say you are not interested, you are already booked, or something else. Just make it clear for them not to come back with a rebuttal. If you feel that this is not getting the message across, then just block said person. That again is simple and solves the issue.

Communication is key in this industry. Make sure that your message regardless is crystal clear. There should not be a time where someone is questioning what you mean with your answer. Mainly, just hit the reply button. Don’t make them pace the floor for your answer.
