Business is all about numbers, right?
You can build a business by building relationships and creating an experience for your customers that will leave them no choice where they should go for their photography, and who they’ll refer to their friends.
Patrick Luke of Luke Photography has 32 years of experience, of which the first 23 years were as a part-time photographer, while working simultaneously first as an environmental scientist, and then in the photography industry at Kodak and Fujifilm. In May 2010, he realized a dream by leaving “Corporate America” and becoming a full-time photographer.
Since then, he moved into a 2,000 s.f. studio and his business has seen 10-15% growth each year. The majority (2/3) of his work is with HS seniors, and the remaining 1/3 is split between business portraits and high school sports.
Patrick first started photographing weddings in 1987, and spent his first 20 years concentrating on weddings. Starting in 2005, he chose to re-focus his attention on portraiture, where he felt he could take more time and be more creative with lighting.
