The notable 21st century rapper, Rick Ross, opined “Every Day I’m Hustlin’.” I have used this intellectually challenging thesis as inspiration for my AC4D $1000 Startup Business Challenge.
I have teamed up with fellow classmate and photographer extraordinaire Anna Krachey, and together we started PictureDayATX.com to offering $50 Head shots in the Austin, TX area.
Our first public session will be this Wednesday, October 9th at the Chicon Collective. I hope the AC4D community will spread the word. You can get more information and book an appointment at our website. Updated: We had to cancel our shoot at the Chicon Collective. More to follow soon.
Part of the challenge is to go out of our comfort zone. I’ve been busy networking with co-working spaces, getting Austin area friends to spread the world and (trying) to sell our service to anyone who will listen. Making the ask or proposing an up-sell has been tough, but I’m pushing through it. I won’t get better without practice. So, like Rick Ross, I’ve been hustling our $50 headshots even if I’d prefer to sit behind my computer and write silly / sales pitch blog posts like this one.
I’ve also attached some cool examples of Anna’s work and retouching skills. The guy in the photo is meNo Comments »
