85: Photographer Lisa Hammond on Consistency and Networking


image1Photographer Lisa Hammond is a Southwest Michigan Wedding Photographer and owner of Lisa Hammond Photography. Lisa Hammond started her career in photography after coming to the end of her rope as a teacher right after the birth of her son. As she started searching out a career as a creative entrepreneur, she found herself coming alive! Lisa has a passion for helping other creatives to fall in love with the business side of things so they can make a living doing what they love! Lisa also has a passion for good cheese and wine, music, time with her girls, exercise and her husband and son. Running a successful business to her means she has time for all these things!

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

In this interview, we discuss the following:

  • Consistency is key with her business.
  • Networking with other wedding photography vendors (florists, wedding planners, etc) has been especially helpful for getting new clients. Lisa actually loves becoming friends with vendors that she networks.
  • Getting to know her clients’ needs is huge. This also applies to vendors that she networks with.
  • Taking a basic business class is very helpful for photographers trying to run her their own businesses.
