Just a small heads up for those that do not know yet- but West County Photo Group has a Facebook page. I post things like tips and tricks or just general advice based on my experiences. Its a great way to chat with others using the chat feature within a group, keep up on our calendar or get some image feedback from the group. So if you haven't checked out our page, click https://www.facebook.com/pages/West-County-Photography-Group/371741013913 and like us. If you REALLY like us, please share the group with your friends using the little "share" button at the bottom of each post.
If any of you would like to share your photography page with the group, this networking page makes it easy to share and follow others. Just cut and paste a link to your photography page on our wall. When updating your photography page (often for best exposure) include recent images, or positive comments about current project. It can be frustrating for followers to see just a link to the same website many times a week; you will loose fans because of it. No matter how temping, never ever post any negative comments about a client, a job or gig. Save the bitch'n for your personal pages with your friends, and even then keep it minimal. If you are using your personal page for any sort of marketing- logos, comments about photography, images that you took- you will be seen as a photographer. Remember to use it like a business page if it has anything to do with your business and keep it POSITIVE and PROFESSIONAL. If you wouldn't say it in a job interview, don't put it on Facebook. I see all of these NO-NOs daily from the people I follow and it makes me "unlike" them in a hurry.
For those that have sent me personal "friend" requests, and have not yet been accepted yet- it's nothing personal. I like to keep my friends and photography separate. (see above)
I would love to hear any fall/harvest ideas for shoots. Let me know what you are interested in doing and I'll try to get it on the calendar.
