In today's episode of the podcast, I chat with Brian Leahy, a successful high-end wedding photographer, who emphasizes the importance of building relationships with clients and industry professionals. We discuss the impact of AI, networking, and pivoting to a new photography niche.

The Big Ideas:

  • Importance of Building Rapport: You'll learn that knowing your clients and industry partners by name can significantly impact your success.
  • Transitioning and Niche Specialization: Discover how pivoting to a new photography niche can be fulfilling and profitable.
  • Networking Impact: We explore how networking can lead to opportunities and provide more value than the quality of your work.
  • Understanding Client Needs: Learn that creativity, while important, may not always be the top priority for clients, especially at high-end events.
