Literally a year ago I started thinking about this whole idea and it was August 2011 when I launched this website. Before doing so there was almost zero mention of this idea online short of forum posts from another fellow who had similar thoughts regarding whether it could be a viable business or not. I put up this website “just to have it up”. More of a “if you build it they will come” type thought. Since then I’ve checked in once in awhile and done a little promo when I had time.
Now don’t get me wrong, I have yet to land that all important first client in this venture (I’ve had many photography clients) but I recently got a call from a reporter at the NY Times asking me questions. Since then I started looking online again and have noticed that the trend seems to be coming. Here are a couple of articles that suggest I may be on to something, that I may not be totally nuts in thinking that people may one day want my services.
