As you may know, I’m around my family or fun-filled play photography most of the time. But never once have I considered professional wedding photography – until I met Kurt.
In renting a limousine for one my friend’s bachelorette parties, I met a cool driver, well company owner, that I got to know as a friend.
We got to talking more about what each of us do for a living, and after revealing to me that he owned company I was renting a limo from, he told me that he knew a lot of professionals in the wedding industry; DJs, other photographers, photo booth renters.
That’s when the potential connection dawned on me, and I realized that limo services are were the networking is at.
Kurt straight up told me that he could get me some jobs with wedding photography if I wanted, and even to contact his other photographer friends to let me shadow. One of them I met, Ken. Whom, gave me the opportunity to do some work with him.
I have a few friends myself that are actually wedding photographers, and they were excited when I told them about my idea.
Since then, I have introduced them to Kurt, and they have taken on a few new people to network themselves. Who would have thought that limo services could be so lucrative?
The Result of Striking Gold With Limos
As you can imagine, it has be a lucky ride for me with this limo connection.
So far, I’ve been some great people that I’m not sure I would have met otherwise. And from the looks of it, this could turn into a completely new career for me.
I know that networking is big in any industry, but I wasn’t even trying to get my foot in the door of this one, and I did. It looks like I might be calling on a limo service more often.
Yeah, I know that I won’t always get a lucky break like this one, but at least I’m now aware that this works so well. Don’t think I’ll be shying away the next time one of my friends or family members needs a limo for something.
