Best client you ever had

Remember when I started in photography. It was hard. No Social Media, no websites, no internet. 

Nevertheless, I managed to always get new clients.

Referrals are the best method to win clients...

But there's always one client that changes how you deal with the business...

Mine was a sax player from Tenessee. He gave me the best advice ever: Find clients that love your work. 

Which one was your best client?

Back in the early seventies I had a friend that became a concert promoter, I got a lot of choice gigs. I sure wish we had today's technology then, it was a LOT of work at the time....

Why so serious?

Perhaps you could stop trying to direct people off-site? Just sayin'....

My best clients took the time to explain what is needed,
negotiated a price, paid upon delivery… and called again.  :)

Light is free… capturing it is not!

My first client was very rough but the second one was really fantastic. He gave me cool ideas to promote my business. And the best thing with your words that referral is the best method to get clients. He referred me to some friends and his friend also referred to others. That's how he helped me to grow my business. I will never forget his help in my life.
