Photography Question 

Getting clients to come to me

I live in a small country town of south east Queensland population about 1000.
The nearest town has a population of about 6000, and it is about 30klm's ( 181/2 mls )from me.
Then im about 100klms ( 60mls ) from Brisbane or the Gold Coast wich are major cities.
The area where I live is very nice it has alot of locations ideal for family and children portraits
Do you have any suggestions on Getting clients to come to me

Nathan M. Yeagle   This idea may be a little costy but I believe its a cost effective way. Advertise at the beginning of a movie at one of the larger cities cinema centers. It would probable have to be a new place to do this I think not sure but what I do know there is a local cinema center less than a year old that does this advertising with local businesses like real estate and insurnace companies. Hope this helps in some way.

  Try putting an add in the phone book or getting yourself listed as a portrait photographer in the yellow pages...

  I would try approaching some children's shops, doctor's offices, etc. about hanging some of your work in their places of business. This has worked well for me. Best of luck!
