I got business cards printed!
When I’m taking photos at an event, people always ask whether I can send them a copy of their photo. Going home with a scribbled list of email addresses and Facebook names doesn’t work too well when I have hundreds of photos and struggle to remember who is who. A more experienced photographer gave me a tip for managing this situation:
- Give them your contact details and put the responsibility for following up on them – half the people you give your email address to will never follow up. You’ve just halved your workload!
- Give them the filename of the photo with them in it (e.g. IMG_8951), so you can easily find it in your archives.
I love sharing my photos, and I think these business cards will help me say thank you to more people for being interesting enough to photograph.
