Every one of the best opportunities I have had over the last three years, including my book, have come as a result of conversations that were initiated on, or because of, my blog. Without exception. I have booked lectures, workshops, and writing assignments solely from this blog.

The importance of social media for any kind of promotion cannot be denied or underestimated.
Unfortunately, there are still quite a lot of photographers who neglect the opportunities of such network as Google+. They think that most of their clients are on Facebook and, well, they might be actually right. So why waste your time on promotion via Google+?
As we already told you before, social media present one of the greatest tool of promotion. But sometimes the networks can be dangerous for your works. That’s why you have to be aware that your content is defenseless in the web unless you provide it with thorough copyright protection.
For any photographer, especially a wedding one, blog is, first of all, a way to attract new clients. Keeping a blog at such popular web-resources as livejournal.com, blogger.com, etc. allows you not only to post your own creations, but also to follow works of your colleagues & acclaimed photography masters through the Friends Page. There you can also join subject communities.
