On this episode, we talk with sports, wedding, and lifestyle photographer Lear Miller. We talk about how Lear got into wedding photography, and within a short time, was booking his entire year within the first month. Networking, marketing, and how Lear manages both wedding shoots and engagement shoots all come up in this segment.
The group also talks about the phenomenon of the recent mass of photographers into the industry, and how other’s react to new technology.
To finish the group talks about the idea of branding yourself as a photographer in terms of focusing on a specific niche versus shooting a variety of content. Lear also discusses how he balances personal and paid work, and why it’s important to continue personal work on the side.
