Planning To Go Pro

As I have been expanding my photography company over the last 6 months I’m always looking for opportunities to generate new business.  A friend recommended Skillpages so I looked into how it could work for me.  Set up was easy and once I had got the hang of wording my posts correctly I quickly made contact with local models which I needed for a project at the time. One of which I’ve featured in the images here.

As my network grew I found more opportunities and made some very useful contacts.  With this I have built my business faster than I ever thought I could.  Being semi-professional I am fortunate not to be solely reliant on photography for my income but with the plan being to go fully pro, any contacts I can utilise to make this transition smoother is a great boost for me.

Collaboration Brings New Opportunities

I have taken on free projects when the subject matter has interested me and used these images to improve my portfolio.  What I have also found is while working on location on these free projects I have networked and picked up opportunities for future paid work so it has been very worthwhile.

With SkillPages I have managed to build a bigger network of professionals I can call upon, increased the diversity of my portfolio and generated some extra business.  With competition in this industry as tough as it is now any tool I can use to do that is a good thing!

New Photos Gave Me The Confidence I Needed

Editor’s note: This is part of a series highlighting member stories on SkillPages.  Sam McFarlane is a free runner from Scotland, he tells us how he used SkillPages to find photographers.

A friend recommended I join SkillPages after seeing the benefits himself.  As a gymnast, free runner and all-round sports enthusiast, SkillPages is the ideal way of showcasing my variety of skills.  I’ve been practising free running for seven years and involved in a free running company called Axis Freerun for the last three years.  I recently decided I wanted some high quality images to increase my profile in the sport.

The next step was posting an opportunity for free on SkillPages searching for a sports photographer in Glasgow.  After a few weeks I had lots of replies and was able to set up numerous meetings.  Since then I have been working with one photographer in particular on a weekly basis.  It has worked out great for me, I couldn’t be happier with the new action shots for myself and for the company.  Through working with Barry I have since had the confidence to send my pictures to various parkour and free running magazines.

I would recommend SkillPages to anyone, I love how easy it is to set up your profile and look for job opportunities.
