Few things are as exciting or nerve-wracking at the same time.
A MUA I worked with recently got me some information about a local agency she has worked with. I’ve looked into it and I really think that working with an agency might bring a lot more to my portfolio and broaden my network in the industry.
But am I ready for it? I’m not really sure. I’m still a bit nervous with new people and I don’t have a large body of work. So I’m contemplating whether or not this will be a good venture for me.
Maybe after I’ve got my September shoots finished? I’m not necessarily looking just to get paid, photography is my passion (I have a full-time job for my bills, y’know) but if I were offered more money for my work, I would welcome it.
Some things I need to think about… hmm…
Anyone who has met me in person thus far probably knows this, but social situations are not always my strong point. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t shake and stumble over my words (unless there is a considerable crowd) but I do tend to be a bit reserved at first, but can be really passionate about the things I love or the things that upset me. I just try to keep a lot of that passion on the down-low because I’m not always sure how people will react.
But I’ve met a few really interesting people already, and I know that networking is starting to pay off. It’s just not my strong point, and so I feel like I should apologize to everyone in advance who must work with my weirdo-ness! But I promise I’m not all that strange, and I’m serious about what I do and that’s why I am so cautious not to come off the wrong way. =]
