Relocating is never easy, but it can be an incredible experience for any photographer looking to expand their horizons. Moving to a new city is also an exciting journey, and the work possibilities can make it all worth it in the end.

Moving can be frightening and daunting, but I strongly advise every artist that feels stuck, discouraged, or bored, to take the leap and see where the road might lead. Personally, I’ve lived in four different cities over the past five years. And because of this, I have been able to experience some amazing opportunities that I wouldn’t have had otherwise.

P.S. If you’re nervous about the move, hire some professionals like to do all of the heavy lifting.

I don’t know anyone who has absolutely loved their moving experience. It can be extremely overwhelming to think about all the connections you’ve had for years or even your whole life in one place and then suddenly leave all of those people all at once. And because I have done this many times, I have developed a process for getting developing connections in a new city and getting more photography customers.

Now let’s talk about getting photography customers. Whether you plan to get paid customers or just shoot for fun, it is ideal to have a solid plan for meeting people before you arrive. Before you move, studying your new city online and on social media is important to find the information that you will need to succeed. You should do research on all of the different zip codes, and establish a photography territory that will get you the income that you want. Reading about the cultures of the area is also important, different cultures and subcultures have unique life areas, which can lead to needing a different photography style in each area.. Social media is another incredible way to learn more personal information about a town, and is a topic that I will touch on in a later post.
