It’s summer, and it’s a great opportunity to get involved in worthwhile projects in your local community. This is a great way to share your talents and make a living while earning an income.
You can promote your photography business in many ways if you are in the photo-shop business. As long as your efforts are effective, you don’t have to charge any fees.
Workshop for seniors and kids
One idea is to hold a workshop about digital photography. You should remember that it is vacation time for students so there will be both day and night camps nearby. These camps offer many activities for children and teach them basic camera handling skills.
Remember that today’s children love taking photos, and many have a camera. Get in touch with your camp operator to arrange a workshop. To ensure your camera doesn’t get damaged, make sure you have waterproof, dustproof and shockproof equipment.
You may be able to teach seniors as well as children. While some seniors still enjoy taking photos, others may not be able to use the digital camera.
After the workshop, distribute flyers and press releases to all participants. You can also share your experiences on your blog and include your workshop in any online community activity schedule. This will help more people know about them.
Workshop on macro photography
You can offer to teach a workshop on macro or flower photography to a local garden club. If you are passionate about the subject and have many wonderful photos to share, this would be a great idea. There are many flower lovers who might be interested in learning how to improve their photography skills. Or, who knows? They may even want professional photos of their finest gardens.
Workshop for Families
Some local parks and recreation departments offer summer activities for children, families, and adults. They can be reached to discuss the possibility of workshops. You could also volunteer to become their official photographer. A workshop in digital photography can be held in the most beautiful places, such as nature trails or walks within your community.
You can also promote your business at outdoor events like festivals, parades, and farmer’s markets. Get in touch with organizers to discuss how you can secure a space or stall that allows you to display your frames photos and promote your business.
These opportunities are available to you this summer, so take advantage of them. It’s very rewarding to be able to share your knowledge and skills. The next thing you know, you’re being contacted for a project in photography.
