What's your style?
Or, do you even need one? Perhaps your work ethic and reputation for quality and flexibility are enough to earn client loyalty from here to retirement. But maybe there's something you've always wanted to try or an aspect of your business that you want to bring to the forefront.
In catching up on my Google reader feeds, I came across a post on the Strobist blog dedicated to Andrew Pinkham whose photography style is reminiscent of paintings of the Old Masters. And, believe it or not, he just started developing and working in this style in 2008 after shooting for two decades. His creative spin on pet and human portraiture came from a desire to "shake things up."
Putting all your business eggs in one stylistic basket at the beginning of your photography career is a daunting choice to say the least but should it be ignored in favor of potentially safer and more diversified route? What led you to (or kept you from) pursuing your own personal style?
