On Monday was my first opportunity to teach for PPA, Professional Photographers of America. I led a class on Juggling Social Media Marketing, which was held in Eastman, Georgia at Spencer Smith’s studio. I have felt that social media has not been addressed very well for photographers and I feel like so many of us are missing the boat when it comes to using social media as a marketing tool. As a wedding photographer that is based primarily out of Valdosta and Atlanta, I try to spend very little of my money on advertising, instead, choosing to spend my time honing my skills on the many different versions of social media. This was a very productive session. By the next day, I had received messages saying that different students had noticed an increase in their followers and also inquiries!
