I'm a (newer) photographer in Billings, MT. I say newer because I've been working with photography for over 10 years and just started getting in the portraiture business. My question is, do you have any advice in getting started? I have done some research here and the number of photographers in Billings is equivalent to the Bay Area which has 20x the population. Amongst the photographers nearby I can keep up with quality. I'm just having a very tough time getting my foot in the door. I would LOVE to travel all over for photos.
Since I am just starting out, I have been charging $500 to do both the engagement AND wedding to build my portfolio. I am listed with wedding vendors, advertising on FB etc and still having trouble. The word of mouth thing doesn't go very far. HELP!http://brittanyputnamphotography.com
