I think I’m going to start running my photography business like politicians run their campaigns. First I’ll absolutely avoid talking, showing, doing anything photography related; as I avoid giving ANY substantial ideas, insight, theory, or history about how great a photographer I will actually be for you if you hire me.
Then, I will talk solely about my competition in a degrading, suggestive, and disgusted tone. I will talk about all the negative things they might or might not have done, or said, or were thinking of saying or doing.
Perhaps I can show up at a bridal show with posters of all my competitition and just spend the time talking about the shot they missed, or the fact that they were 5 minutes late to a wedding once, or that they took tax credits for being a small business, or that they ordered a camera online and didn’t support their own community.
Perhaps I am going about it all wrong.
Is it me or would all it take to win an election is be the “Other” person who doesn’t play that stupid game?
