What’s on Joce’s Computer?

Sunday, April 24th, 2011

Well today is Easter and I just don’t feel like going into my office (it’s a work thing) so I will sometimes sit at Joce’s computer at home and surf my sites.  Just for kicks I started going through some old folders on the computer and came across one random folder called “Stuff”.  I thought I would post them here.  Some images are over 10yrs old and in no specific order.

Happy Easter!

I am not a “Wedding Photographer”

Monday, May 10th, 2010

It’s been a couple of months since our cross Canada Road Show and I am delighted that I am still receiving emails from the attendees.  Several emails were concerning my reply to a question from our Calgary Event as we were on the topic of websites, galleries and social media.  The question was whether or not to have separate websites for each “niche” of photography.  So one website for weddings & portraits, another for commercial, another for glamor etc so that you present to your clients that you “specialize” in this type of photography.  Personally I prefer to have all my photography on my one site (as I do) and one response was “but wouldn’t a potential client look at someones photography site that only has wedding photography on it and think this photographer “specializes” in wedding photography while this photographer does weddings, portraits, commercial, pets and so on.  The perception being that you are a “General” photographer where as the other photographer focuses on wedding photography thus he/she is more suited for weddings.

My response was… “I am a photographer, I do it all.  If they go to my site they will not only see my wedding photography, but also see that I am pretty darn good at commercial, pet’s, babies, kids, maternity and anything else I attempt to photograph.  My skills as a photographer bleed into anything that I wish to photograph.”  I am not a “wedding photographer” I am a photographer.
