I drove uber while I was not working a day job for about 10 months. It was fun and I met a lot of people. I got a few weddings from it and a ton of other work. I still do it 1 day a week for 3-5 hours just to network. Its fun and you meet some interesting people.

There's an off season?

Seriously, our wedding "season" is just about to start (in Oz) and my expansion into commercial is about to completely consume my wedding photography. For this whole year I've averaged shooting about 8 homes plus a couple of commercial portrait/product sessions per week. I still haven't lodged my operators certificate paperwork for my drones because I'm so busy. I took one week off in winter and booked a dozen jobs while I was away.

I'd kill for an off season......

We'll be going to Vietnam in Jan/Feb which I'm pretty pumped for. I have a few winter weddings and I'd love to do some 2nd shooting or even try my hand at video once or twice if I can find the opportunity. I would love to do a workshop, but it's not in the finances this unfortunately.

I don't generate enough money in the on-season to have an off-season

- Update the website
- Rewrite the pricelist and add some nice "packages"
- Find a way to include albums, I've been mostly avoiding albums
- Find a way to deliver prints to clients whithout dropping by in person
- Have a talk with a local photolap to work together (could solve the 2 previous points)
- Maybe spend like 50 euros on facebook or google marketing
- Play Kerbal Space Program

(I'm just a weekend warrior, aiming for 5-10 weddings per year)

no, thats called porn... (0:


No box, but another photographer who jokes around and animate people to go crazy in front of the camera. We recently did it in favor for the couple and the images turned our great.

You are of course much more free in doing cool pics instead of the same angle every time that conventional photo-booth offer.

My son is not expensive, you know (0:

I may need to hit you up for some wisdom about the fashion work sometime.
