All that hard work. Last year at this time I was just thinking of opening a studio. I struggled with getting my name out there on a zero budget. And now the calls are starting to come on their own. It's such a gratifying feeling. Over the past two days, I got a call to do product photography (eyeglasses for a new wholesaler), a pre-Bar Mitzvah family session and a request to donate a gift certificate to a local fundraiser (one of the biggest here in town, HUGE advertising exposure). These are three big tickets in 2 days. I constantly worry about not getting enough clients, especially in the winter, and this makes me feel like it'll hopefully be ok.
