Practice Session @ Home

If this photo biz is going to get off the ground I'm going to need to build up a mini-portfolio to show potential clients before they sign on to the idea of me being their photographer. Thankfully, I can rely on my beautiful girls at home to help me out with that...

Defining My Focus

Defining the details of what my photography business will offer and the style in which it operates is a little tedious, especially since I'm a detail guy and want to make sure I'm covering all of the bases. With that said, I think it's important first off to define what my core business will be about, and that's going to be newborns and children. Not that I will not make myself available for other opportunities such as couples and events, but I want children photography to be my main focus. Why? Well, I can relate to those parents who want to capture in time their ever-changing kids because I have a 2 month old at home that captures my heart each and every day. Those images are timeless treasures that will be shared with not only friends and family of today, but the sons and daughters of their children tomorrow. It is my hope that I can share in capturing those special moments in time.

Wear Your Hard Hat....This Place is Under Construction

This is my first official post for my new blog dedicated to CrashB Photo. I am currently developing the foundation of my soon-to-be freelance photography business, which includes this website and plenty of other tools. It always takes a little time to develop the items that you'll need for marketing your business, but it's these type of things that should really help me when I do have everything up and running. And I know, what a great time to start up a business during these turbulent financial times. Honestly, I see the timing while work out just fine because I plan to offer to my clients professional photography at reasonable rates. Do I have an idea of what exactly those rates will be? Nope, but hopefully soon I will. Haha! What this all boils down to it that this has been a hobby of mine for some time now, and I think this business will be a great way to share the passion I have for photography and the memories they capture with others.

Alright, now that I've got my first post out of the way I think I can breathe a little sigh of relief. I still have more work to do, but I'm excited about what I'm building here and can't wait to get things rolling. Wish me luck!!
