*** Clarification: what I’m talking about below is NOT a good idea and NOT something I endorse. If you value yourself as a photographer, you will never ever do this.
Just ’cause we are all (and I mean all) talking about the best strategy to get clients today, I thought I’d share an email that I received this afternoon (names and details have been removed to protect the innocent- and likely very successful photographer):
My name is XXXXXX XXXXXX and I am a XXXXX photographer who specializes in XXXXX and XXXXX.
I got your contact info from Workbook and wanted to offer my services to any of your clients.
My new studio day rate is 1K per day.
Take a look at my website and feel free to contact me any time for a bid.
Thanks for your time,
