I have been a friend of the Foothills Camera Club in Calgary for years, and have spoken at several events with them over the years. These days, the club has over 100 members, who meet monthly to discuss photography, do group field trips and take workshops with professional photographers. Due to the pandemic, they have now moved to Zoom meetings, but continue to offer a monthly speaker series to help members grow their skills, and take part in different forms of photography.
I was excited to be invited to speak as part of the club’s monthly Speakers series, and this time I will be presenting on Breaking Out of Your Niche: Photography in changing times. The talk will cover the pros and cons of choosing a photography niche, and how to adapt to the rapidly changing photography market. I have always bounced between a variety of photographic niches and although not having a set niche can hamper marking efforts, it’s been an incredibly rewarding journey. I have worked in photography of all kinds in Calgary and abroad, such as commercial, food, portrait, event, wedding, product, and real estate photography.
I have my favorite photography niches and some are more for artistic expression and some are part of my business offering, but all teach you something different. My talk will cover the various aspects of photography that I have learned while exploring different niches throughout my career, including equipment, camera skills, and post-production. I hope you will join us in this exciting Zoom event. I will be sharing a huge body of my work throughout.
