Good Evening Everyone! I just got back in EPHQ in Huntington Beach from a couple of errands, delivering some albums and almost forgot to let you know about a great conversation that we had with our good friend Candice Cunningham for Camera Dojo on iTunes today.
Candice Cunningham is a totally killer wedding photographer that hails from Ventura California (just North of LA in “The Valley”) who has been perfecting her craft for the past seven years and managed to do FIFTY weddings last year. Yes, you read that right FIVE-ZERO! With this much experience under her belt, Candice talks to us about getting ready, dealing with clients, thank you cards, and so much more.
While most conversations we record are pretty much “wedding photography” intensive – Candice’s podcast covers diverse crucial topics that can apply to all parts of running a photography business such as dealing with customers and doing things to make them feel special. My whole take that I gleaned from her podcast conversation is that it’s all about the clients, not us.
I have a rule of thumb that I do my best to treat the celebrities I have worked with like regular people and us “regular folk” like celebrities. The bottom line though, is to recognize what makes a person feel special & treat them like that because the golden rule has changed. It’s no longer treat people as you would want to be treated, but treat people how they want to be treated.
I hope you enjoy the conversation we have with her & if you would like to check out more of our podcasts, click the button below and you can subscribe to us in iTunes.
Have a super week – cheers!
