I abhor the way every working photographer when asked how it’s going replies, “I’m so busy.” Automatically. Whether they are or not, they think it’s a badge of honor. “So, so busy.”
Busy isn’t the most important thing to be. A good balance of work and free time is important, not just running from one job to the next non-stop.
That said, I can’t tell you how many jobs I’ve been PASSED UP for because company PR directors and art directors told me they assumed I was TOO BUSY for them. With my background and experience, they figured I must be booked non-stop.
Nope. I’M NOT THAT BUSY. And certainly not too busy for you to contact me and discuss what you’re working on and see how I can help. I love a new challenge and I travel throughout the country for clients.
For some clients, I’ve even driven across the U.S. just so I could bring specialty equipment to their shoot.
Anyway, if you’re looking for an experienced photographer who makes work the way I do, try me.
This will be my new tagline: “I’M NOT THAT BUSY.”
