On a visit to his neighborhood Starbucks a few years ago, photographer Brad Williams saw several attractive photographs displayed on the walls. Williams, who specializes in outdoor photography, was primarily a hobbyist back then but was becoming known for his artistic shots of buildings, skylines and cityscapes.
Realizing that his photos stacked up favorably to those already displayed, Williams showed his creative work to the Starbucks manager. Soon thereafter, his photographs were on display for coffee drinkers and latte sippers to enjoy.
One day a local real estate developer happened to notice Williams’ photograph of a suspension bridge. The developer had been looking for a talented photographer to shoot his buildings, so he gave Williams a call.
The real estate developer became a loyal client and still is to this day. Williams has built his photography business and now boasts a long list of prestigious clients. Photography has become a profitable side business that compliments his fulltime work at a civil engineering firm.
Opportunities to market you and your business are practically everywhere. You simply need to keep your eyes open and take action.
