Freelance Photographers: a tip

What's right with this picture ?

Freelance Photographer in 1850

A neat idea for getting more leads

Here's the idea in easy stages...

  • Set up at a networking event
  • Take decent portraits for using on LinkedIn and Gravatar - and Facebook
  • Ask for a contribution to a charity (this is important - you are not charging for the portraits)
  • Email the portraits out

The benefits are

  • You get to help a charity
  • People at last get decent gravatars and LinkedIn mug-shots

The world is already a better place with fewer dreadful portraits - but wait...

  • You've got a much higher profile and people will remember you

Get in early before the rush.
