Show Notes

In this week’s episode, Rahul Khona is chatting with the awesome family photographer from Manchester Anna Hardy who has been through it all – from documenting weddings for over 15 years and then transitioning to family photography as well as being an educator to other photographers. 

Networking is like the unsung hero of a photographer's journey, and we're diving into why making those real connections can seriously level up your game. Plus, we're shaking things up with marketing – forget the fancy ads and social media, Anna swears by the good old mailing list. Find out how a bit of personal touch can go a long way in building a community around your work.

Ever wondered how to really connect with your clients? Anna reveals the secrets on empathising with them and turning their stories into timeless photos that truly mean something. We're also getting into the nitty-gritty of social media – why it's cool but maybe not where you should be putting ALL your energy. Sometimes, less scrolling means more creativity.

Lastly, let's talk about selling without feeling like you're selling. Anna tells us on how being genuine, passionate, and just downright real with your clients can make all the difference.
