I want to give a huge thank you to Kevin for taking the time to chat with us! I consider myself as much a student as the listening audience, and appreciate him sharing his extensive knowledge.

In this interview, we discuss:

  • Standing out with your photographic style
  • Marketing tips to get yourself noticed
  • How to overcome the challenges we face running our photography business when everyone seems to call themself a photographer
  • Getting out of your comfort zone
  • ASKING for what you want (imagine that!)

And here are some links we discuss:
