OK – I have to admit, speaking at Image Quest (the annual convention for the Professional Photographers of BC) a couple of weeks ago was A BLAST. Reilly and I had so much fun, and the feedback has been overwhelming. There’s nothing I love hearing more than that some little tidbit of info or thing that we said has helped someone with their own business!
Those who know me well know that I am crazy passionate about small business especially bringing people together and sharing info, and we’re hoping to start doing even more of both, starting this week.
First up, we’re part of this coming weekend’s (April 17 & 18) Mentor Me program with the PPABC. We’ll be talking again about social media and with more time and a small group we’ll be able to get much more hands on with lots of time for one on one questions and attention. I’ve already been talking about this one online but wanted to get it up here as well. The registration deadline is just a couple of days away – April 15th – so jump on board if this sounds up your alley! The PDF flyer can be downloaded directly here and there’s a facebook event as well.
Next, on July 19th we’ll be in Victoria (changed from the May date) chatting with a group of photographers about what we do. Let your island photographer friends know, and if you’re in the area yourself don’t miss it! We’re looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones for an evening of info and open-book Q&A. We’re looking forward to sharing whatever those in the room want to know about what we do and how we do it. There’s also a facebook event, of course.
The beginning of May signals the start of wedding season for us (and all the craziness that comes along with it!) but we always love to travel – especially throughout Canada – so get in touch if any of you are interested – or know someone who might be – in having us out to your area for a chat.
As well, we’ll have a proper announcement in the weeks ahead when we launch our new website (!!), but we’re officially offering a select number of one on one consulting sessions each month starting in May. Topics include everything from branding and brand analysis through to social media and of course, all things photography. Sessions will be tailored for each individual and take place via phone/video chat (we can walk you through that, too) or in our studio, although local clients will be limited. Want on the list for full details? Give us a shout.
I can’t even tell you how excited we are about all of this and oh so much more. It’s going to be one heck of a year! Cheers all!
