What makes you different? What makes you stand out? I’m speaking mainly to photographers, but this applies to so many other areas of life. Our world is full of over-saturated industries, & most everyone follows the mold, trying to be like whoever they see crushing it.
Over a year ago I got an inquiry from Maxine. She sent me an excited novel (literally) describing what she envisioned for her & Noah’s epic wedding on his family estate in Vermont. She painted the whole picture for me, including monks walking around the property, a Stonehenge replica, a dark enchanted forest vibe, & how completely untraditional & chill (while also being as extra as possible 👌🏼) they wanted it to be.
She’d been to classic, traditional weddings before, & knew that formal family photos, traditional staged posing, & light & airy editing was NOT her vibe. She thought she was destined to give her guests disposable cameras because she didn’t see a photographer out there who matched her style & captured weddings as they authentically happened without lining people up for hours of excruciating formal portraits. Until she found me. Hence the super long, in depth, excited email inquiry she sent me. 😊
I remember her inquiry so vividly because back then I was floored someone was so willing to fly me from Hawaii to Vermont because they saw something in me & my work that wasn’t like the rest.
Friends, that would have never happened if I gave in to the mold & did exactly what other photographer did. If I didn’t own what made me unique & stay true to MY way of storytelling, Maxine would probably have disposable camera shots from her wedding day. And lemme tell you that dress alone deserved WAY more than a lil disposable camera photographing it. 😉
My point is.... BE YOU. Don’t follow the crowd. Be different. Not everyone is going to love & book you. That’s OKAY. Because the RIGHT people for you WILL. When you stop screaming to the masses & start whispering exactly to your people, they will notice. I promise.
Tell me below one thing that makes you different from everyone else. And don’t say nothing because you are awesome & you have something no one else has.
