How to Overcome the Challenges of Working Solo

By: Cherie Phelps, C Phelps Photography

I used to dread people telling potential clients that I worked out of my home. Even just shooting on location always gave me a slight inferiority complex. If only I had a big studio with lights and a camera room I would be taken seriously.

But you know what? I got over myself. Because really, having a big studio isn’t a sure ticket to business success and better shooting.

You don’t have to have all those things to create killer senior images. You have to make the most of what you have. In the end your clients don’t care what kind of studio you have. They only remember the images you created for them and the experience they had with you.

The truth is I’ve become pretty good at working alone, and I like it.

I’ve put together a couple of free videos with Seniors Ignite where I share tips on shooting without an assistant, finding great locations, and making the most of what you have. Just in time for the upcoming senior summer season.

Plus you can download my Free Studio Essentials guide with a list of must-have items to have on hand for your senior sessions.

Get the tips and free guide now.

I want to show you that you can do this. I love working alone. And I don’t feel I have to change anything to be successful.

So come see how I do things. And here’s to a great senior year!
