LINDSAY FOSTER PHOTOGRAPHY
*Answers below are taken verbatim from entry.
I have been a newborn & portrait photographer for over 11 years now full time. I graduated with a Graphic Design Diploma which allowed me to use my photoshop skills and marketing skills to help grow my business into my own style. I love working outside the box and doing the occasional shoot that challenges me or helps me to become a better photographer. Photography is art and the style of that art 100% should represent yourself as an artist
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR STRATEGY THROUGHOUT THE PANDEMIC?
Since newborns can only be photographed within a certain age (5-10 days new) I have given my clients the opportunity to let me guide them through their own newborn session in the comfort of their own home. Free of Charge. I then edit the photos they took to give them a gallery they can cherish forever.
HOW HAS THE PANDEMIC & SHUTDOWN AFFECTED YOUR BUSINESS?
It definitely has affected business. The sessions I typically do are milestones (newborn to 1 year) and so many parents are missing out on those due to being shut down.
There are always bills that continue to come in for equipment, software, internet and repairs and it does get a little daunting.
Not to mention photographers will likely be last on the list to start business back up as we most certainly are not essential.
