So I did start doing a quote of the month in December but because I only started this blog this year, I decided to start off this month with a quote that I picked. I know it’s a bit late to post the quote of the month as it is already the second week of the month but it’s a start and a new change. In the future I will be posting it in the first week of the month.
In winter, I plot and plan. In spring, I move. —Henry Rollins
The reason I picked this quote is because it is true for a lot of photographers, who live in the snowy, cold weather, will understand this quote very well. Most photographers don’t get a lot of business or it’s slow during the wintery months, so we plot and plan to see what we are going to do when spring hits.
So what do the photographers do during the wintery months? Some may be figuring out their marketing strategy for the coming spring to bring in more business or if they’re lucky get some indoor shoots or maybe some outdoor shoots (depending on the weather). For me, it’s to figure out the marketing and how to promote myself to bring in more clients. I can tell you now, it’s not easy to figure out at all. But we all have to stay motivated and help each other out.
Good luck everyone in the upcoming spring!
