p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Any south Florida photogs out there?


I am knee deep in a move to south FL in the coming weeks...this Boston weather is for the birds!

In any case, I was curious if any south FL photogs could offer their opinions on the state of the photog business in south FL currently.

I would be interested in shooting mostly lifestyle portraits and seniors...not weddings so much. Am I correct in thinking the business is more "year round" in nature due to the conducive weather?

I will be in the Fort Lauderdale area most likely.

Thanks,

Russ

It's been a few years since I've lived there, but yes, the industry there is certainly year round.

I live about 5 mins from fort Lauderdale, while I'm not a full time pro, I do see tons of opportunity for work.

I remember South Florida "winters". It may actually not rain for a few days...

Here in LA it was 90F last week, in downtown. It's too much...

OK, OK Russ, you can move here but you have to promise not to say "back north we used to do it this way . . . " As for the photography business, I think it's pretty competitive. We have quite a few photo groups that corner the sports and school markets. They are mostly smash and grab but they do have a foothold down here IMO. The good news is houses are a lot less than your area and we don't have any heating bills or state tax.

And, sirimiri we are in desperate need of rain. Drought conditions here for the past few years.
