If you want to make a living as a photographer, you have to promote yourself. Unless you can hire someone else to do it, you won’t make a living any other way.
While the Internet has certainly been a boon to photographers looking to get their work noticed, believe it or not, there are those of us old enough to have made a living in photography without the Internet.
This image is the front of a self-promo card I still use from time-to-time. I’ve NEVER gotten as much business from the Internet as I have from sending this card (and cards like it) to the right photo editors and buyers.
Maybe YOU should consider sending out a post card or two?
