People of OZB! I am a self taught photographer and over the years spent money on my old time passion and upgraded my gear. I am happy and confident with what I have. what I do not have is the experience of photographing clients (total strangers). I want to excel in lifestyle family photography and some food!
I recently advertised my ad on Gumtree and price my work @ $5-20 bookings fee and no charges after that.
I am getting extremely poor response and people approach are the ones who copy and paste the same message to all the photographers available on the platform and ask me for my portfolio and charges. However, it is clearly mentioned on my ad that I am building the portfolio and what my charges will be for each kind of photoshoot and Its all just the $5 to $20 booking fee and that is all. I just want people to show up on the day!
I am thinking about printing "Get a free family photoshoot" and contact number on a A3 size sheet and stick it on my car's rear window.
What do you guys think.
