"Group f/64 was a group founded by seven 20th-century San Francisco Bay Area photographers who shared a common photographic style characterized by sharply focused and carefully framed images..." Wikipedia
Yesterday was the sixth get-together for the f64 Lunch Bunch. We decided to mix up the format a little, and this time three of the industry's leading women joined the discussion. It was no surprise there was a lot of good insight and ideas shared. They were all focused on keeping in touch with your clients and continuing to build a more substantial business, even with the current challenges created by the pandemic.
And, as with each program to date, the attendees always come through with great questions and comments. They created more ideas and food for thought as we all work to find an acceptable level of normalcy in dealing with social distancing.
Sheltering in place is about your safety and health. It does NOT mean you need to stop building your brand, relationships with clients, or developing a more reliable and diverse skill set. The situation we're all in isn't going to last forever. And, as the conversation brought out at "lunch," there's so much you can be doing to make yourself and your business stronger!
Some of the additional links shared yesterday, along with the links to our guests on Facebook are all listed below. Click on any banner for more information.
Note: We're going to skip lunch next week so everybody can get time in with QuaranCon, but check back the following week when we feature three of wedding and event photography's leading couples!
Check out "Why?" one of the most popular features on the SCU Blog. It's a very simple concept - one image, one artist and one short sound bite. Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
