Are you determined enough to succeed and needing a pro photographers website?
In the beginning, Green Man focused on photographers. I’m a photographer so it’s a natural fit. Since then I’ve branched out, working with everyone from city governments to healers. I can only do so much. Take on too many clients and the work suffers, and quality of life as well. There’s more to life than money.
So I’ve limited the number of photographers I take on. My criteria isn’t how successful you are, but how successful you’re willing to become.
What I see most often are the landscape/travel photographers looking to make enough to at least pay their yearly hosting. I see portrait photographers looking for a website to go pro. I see commercial photographers getting hammered by clients doing photography in-house. Those are the kinds of people I love working with. You’re hungry for something, and when you’re hungry, you’re less likely to fail. When you fail, I fail as well.
Your website is advertising, and people don’t acquire the knowledge of what makes advertising work through osmosis, insemination or quite often, even experience. You set out to learn what works, what doesn’t and why. If your business is booming and there’s more work than you can do, you probably don’t need me.
With the new SmugMug*, it’s simple for photographers to build a great looking site. And if that’s all you’re looking for, I recommend you take it for a spin yourself and see what you come up with. There are those who believe that all you need is pretty site and the customers will come. That’s bullshit. Most photographers fail in the first or second year of business, and lot of them had really great looking sites. I should know, I built some of them.
I’m looking for a handful of landscape/travel photographers, fine art photographers, portrait photographers and wedding/event photographers who want to succeed
If you believe in yourself, have a dream, energy and curiosity, then drop me a line. Explain your goals, your business and I’ll take a look and see if I can bring something to the party. If we’re a good fit, I have no doubts that we can do great work together. After all, if I agree to work with you, that means I’m one of your biggest fans.
* If you don’t know about SmugMug, it’s the best photo hosting/sharing site out there, for pro photographers looking for a professional website. I was one of the original SmugMug certified customizers, and use their platform and WordPress exclusively.
