It is not uncommon to hear from budding photographers how they can make money with their photography. Well this is a good example of a niche market that cannot be outsourced to another country, and can make you money. If you can learn to help create the proper image for a business person, or a business, then you have a great business of your own. And make sure you get good photos of yourself to market yourself to others. Oh, and a photo of "guy/gal with camera" taken in a mirror does NOT constitute a good photo for a photography business. That just shows lack of imagination. It is one of those majorly overdone cliche shots often seen on photography lists and even in photography marketing. And worse yet, many people take the same photos in a bathroom and posting it on Facebook or Hot-or-Not thinking it makes them look all sexy. This is a good time to trade services with another photographer. Shoot each other.
So sometime this week go up on LinkedIn and scan through your friends photos. Take a look at what they post. See how many use junk photos. And if they live close call them up and tell them you can help them with their professional image. It could be fun, and might even net you some money to help get that next camera or other bit of gear.
