Outdoor Natural Light Portraits

Hi Everyone!

This weekend, why not go outside and practice your natural light portraits?  Hopefully it isn’t too hot where you are.  Natural light photography is still my favorite and I love the gorgeous portraits that I’m able to get outdoors.

I found a couple of really helpful videos on youtube that demonstrate some natural light portrait techniques.  You can view them by clicking on the links below:

Quick Tip For Marketing Your Boudoir Photography

Hi Everyone!

I can’t believe the response I’ve had to the articles and marketing guide for boudoir photography!  Seems as though many of you are wanting to get into this specialty.  With that in mind, I wanted to share a quick marketing tip for your boudoir photography business.

First, read the article by clicking the link below - then come back here for the tip:

Portraits in retro sensuality

Okay, so here is what you should do:  Contact a reporter at your local paper who specializes in pieces like the one you just read (Portraits in Retro Sensuality).  You can either give them a call or send them a press release (with a story idea).  Remember, you want to make it news-worthy and entertaining.  DO NOT simply promote your business.  WIth any luck, you’ll receive a photo credit and a mention in an article on boudoir photography in YOUR town.  You could also do this same thing with your local news TV station.

Thanks!
