You did the thing, you launched your business! Good job! However now comes the challenge of gaining business and exposure, but how do you do that when you don’t have a professional portfolio?
Enter styled photoshoots.
In the wedding industry specifically you will hear a lot about styled shoots, but what’s the hype about? What even is a styled shoot. Let us tell you:
Styled photoshoots are shoots coordinated to showcase a certain vision that a wedding pro has in order to showcase their products or services in exactly the way they want, rather than following direction from a client. The vision is executed by the vendor team who all collectively work together to create picturesque magic showcasing all of their individual talents and unique products.
WHY YOU SHOULD PARTICIPATE:
This is a great way to meet others in the industry and build your business. These photo shoots are filled with pros that are both new and seasoned in the industry, so it is a great time to get to know those that can help take your business to the next level.
2) BUILD YOUR PORTFOLIO
Styled shoots are a time you get to decide what you want to showcase and how you want to represent your business. These are typically the pictures you will feature as you may not get galleries back from clients, so you need extras just in case.
3) BUILD YOUR PORTFOLIO AND EXPERIENCE
Being a part of a styled shoot shows you are legitimate and take your business seriously. Plus, you don’t want to be the only one not giving it their all, so you will push yourself to create beyond your skill level and get better over time!
