p.1 #1 · Reconciling Family portraits with Boudoir photography


Happy New Year, all,

Iím curious as to otherís experiences with the potential business dilemma goddardca references below.

One might assume that clients looking for a family portrait photographer might be uneasy with a photographer that also markets him/herself as a "boudoir" shooter.

Do any of you have perspectives, opinions, experiences with shooting both ends of the business?

I'm kind of in an awkward position right now as I prefer to shoot fashion and commercial looking shots but just found out that suicide girls wants to test me out as a possible future photographer for them. While I am honored, I'm torn as most of my paying clients are from senior pics, newborns, and e-sessions and don't really want to two worlds to collide because it can cost me some business.

I vote two sites. From a marketing perspective, i'd guess the mom looking for a family portrait photographer is completely different than the person looking for a boudoir photographer. Therefore, they should probably be marketed to separately.

I operate different sites. Different business cards, marketing materials, completely separate.

There ya have it - you really do need to keep the two worlds separate.

My wife does the same thing she has two separate sites for the boudoir and one for the weddings and portraits. Different marketing materials and business cards.

Id go so far, in this world of googling, to suggest even using a pseudonym or market one site with your name perhaps, and another with a business name... If I were shooting for suicide girls or the like I would come up with some really cool fake name like Max Power or Flash Nasty or Solid State or maybe Rob Steel.
