Just need some input on everyones thoughts... I am just starting out. I now feel comfortable in doing my portrait sessions and I have been getting a lot of business/referrals for my portraits. My main goal is to be a "wedding" photographer. I only have one ugly wedding to show (older people, crappy wedding-before I even started my business). I recently had my friend and her boyfriend pose as a bride and groom. (mainly portraits on the beach) I think that the photos turned out great. I really think that if I sign up to participate in a bridal show, I could get a ton of business. My only problem is that I don't have much to show. I have working in the wedding industry for 2 years now, so I know that I will be good with "weddings". I know that I have photos that are impressive, but not a huge variety. The bridal show I am interested in is a very small cheaper show. I hear that it is only about $200. Most of the brides will be very budgeted, so my prices are good. I believe that the other photographers there will have "experience" but not "talent". (I went to this bridal show last year) Things I plan on doing for the show: Guestbook/photobook of an engagement shoot I did' Mini album of my friends "bridal" shoot Have 2 large prints framed form my friends shoot A slideshow going on my LCD screen of some random picutres (may include engagements and possibly families and babies) Of course all of the other decorating materials and banners. My main goal is to show that I can take GREAT photos at a very CHEAP price.
