As a photographer there are many ways to get involved in the community and reach new clients. One of our favorites is through collaborations with other local businesses! It’s mutually beneficial and there are endless possibilities for creativity.
We’ve created a list of ideal business to collaborate with if you are a photographer. However these are great options for other businesses as well. Don’t forget, if you fall under one of the listed businesses, collaborating with a photographer is a great idea too!
Ideal Businesses for Photographers to Collaborate With
Throw a Party - This one is awesome because you can get multiple businesses involved. Then have a party, and everyone invites all their clients, and just like that you all get to make new connections!
Mini Sessions - Set up some mini photo sessions where multiple people come to have photos taken in one day. Have a local business such as a florist donate a prop for the photos and you can give then a photo session in exchange. Then have them post the photos you take on their social accounts!
Join Each others Preferred Vendors List - A lot of times businesses have lists they share with clients who are looking for services they don’t provide personally. Connect with local businesses and build a relationship then hop onto each others lists.
