Although I have been a photographer for over 20 years, it is only recently with the advent of Social Media and the huge growth of Blogging that I have started to share my work. Before digital (although being in IT most of my life I was a late starter with Digital Photography – I didn’t buy a DSLR until I retired my film camera in August 2012!) I really only shot for a market of 1 – me!
Now that I am a full time photographer, I am looking at different ways to get my name out there – website, blogging and social media (Google+, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram) are the tools I have been using (that’s why you will see a lot of Blogs about SEO recently – I am getting myself up to date with latest techniques and I’ve been sharing a lot of them with you!
But my latest attempt to get my name out is a RL (real life) experience – I have a photography exhibition at a local Cafe and I am having the opening on January 17th at KD’s Cafe & Catering at 7 Finch Street, Slade Point, Mackay. One of the things I haven’t done, is come up with a name for my exhibition – so I am running a competition on Facebook – whoever comes up with the winning name gets a free meal at the opening – don’t worry, if you can’t make it and I choose your entry, I will have the meal for you and send you an email telling you all about it!
There are 7 items shots that I have had printed and framed (and they look SOOOOO good – not that I am biased!) but I will have the entire collection running on digital photoframe (or frames).
So, if you are in the Mackay area, please come to the opening on Friday 17th January, 2014, 6:30pm.
