Hey Brittnie, your photos are awesome. I had a quick question if you don't mind. Any recommendations on a photographer who is turning it into a business. I was wondering if you had any tips on building clientele and how long did it take you to get to where your at now? Thanks for taking the time to read this. Have a nice day :D!
Thank you so much for your email! Word of mouth has been the biggest way to grow clientele, and make sure to always be patient and grateful and just take it all in and not rush things! I had the biggest frustration for awhile because I wasn’t building clientele “quick enough” and once I sat back and let things happen I was amazed at how quickly it was growing! Depending on what type of photography you are interested in you can try the following… if I was really wanting to photograph couples but didn’t know of any that were recently engaged, I would contact friends of mine that were in relationships and ask if I could photograph them! Most people likely won’t hire you if they can’t see any photos of the type of work they are needing done so this will definitely help you to build your work up and post some of it online! Once you’ve shot with these people they can recommend you to their family and friends and it’ll just take off from there! I’ve been “seriously shooting” for about 3 years now, and I am quitting my job in a few months to be full-time so just remember the timing is different for everyone and don’t be upset if it’s not as quickly as you’d like it to be :)
Just received the most gorgeous tattoo draw-up from Corinne Alexandra and contacted a tattoo artist to get a quote! It’s so beautiful I just can’t wait :)

Hi Brittni! Any chance you can do a short video walking us through your editing process?
I would but A: I don’t know how to do that, haha and B: I’ve started using LR and created lots of presets that I always just use now so once I apply my present I rarely do any adjusting above that - However, I will tell you that I adjust the highlights, whites, shadows and blacks section a lot as well as the contrast levels and that’s mostly what I do and then maybe add a little bit of grain and a little fading :) Have a good day!
