Catching Up and What’s Ahead
When I used to blog a lot more, I did these posts every week and I want to start doing that again. I really want this blog to work, so I am going to start making more of an effort with it. Not sure about the form, but think I will let it grow depending on how certain things go.
Recently I spoke about how I am trying to work out Facebook and see if I can get my page moving. It is happening, but very slowly. It is a bit frustrating, to say the least.
Part of the reason for wanting to get it going was to fill my workshops, sell photos, sell my book and have others want to be mentored by me. It doesn’t seem too much to ask, but apparently no one wants to learn from me, well almost no one. So, I am currently doing an online course to help me build my business and use Facebook more effectively. It is too early to say if it is working, but I have high hopes.
Part of the problem, I’ve come to realise, is that my page is too much about me. So I decided to start a new page that would be more about helping people get their photography to the next level and develop their own style. I will still have the two pages, but one will be about me, and the other about the readers. I started it on Friday and called it The Photographers Mentor.
If you click on the image above it should be a link to the page if you would like to see it.
It is still in its infancy, but I really want to see if I can grow it. I know that it will change over time, but I’m excited about it and looking forward to seeing where it goes.
This is something else I want to try doing more of. I’m getting fed up with hearing how other photographers are selling images and I don’t sell any. I know I don’t push it much, but I’m hear to tell you that is going to change. I am reworking my gallery so I can sell more images, or sell some. It always amazes me how people say my work is distinctive and different, yet no one wants to own any. Maybe I do have it all wrong.
I will be reorganising what I have, and the plan is to have just one page of images that will be rotated, maybe. I am also thinking of using my Flickr page as a gallery, as I tend to only put the images that I love up there. You can see my account here, Flickr.
Part of what I want to do with Facebook is also doing more videos. Sharing more of my thought processes and how I do things. I used to do them more, but then forgot. So I’m going through what I have and seeing if I can reuse some, plus do some new ones. It is always interesting to see what people want.
I have a sunrise video for you. I processed it and then speed it up.
I like doing these, they are fun.
These posts are always going to be more about what I want to do. What I want to sell or promote. I am going to plan other posts during the week that are more for you and what I can do to help you.
I hope you had a great weekend and got lots of photos.
