Do not delay it
The process of establishing yourself in the wedding photography industry is no walk in the park, to say so in the very least. A wedding photographer will need to jump through the proverbial hoops before he gets anywhere near making a solid enough income in order to be able to make things sustainable at some point or so. If you have any plans or dreams of becoming a wedding photographer, then there really is no point of delaying it any further. If you are absolutely sure that when it all comes down to it, this is something that you really are quite passionate about, then you should go ahead and try to more or less work on it a little but every single day.
Every little bit really can help you along the way.
Every single baby step that you take is a little step that will help bring you closer to the ultimate goal which is to become a pro wedding photographer when it all comes down to it. Even if it is something that sounds a little silly and frivolous at the time being, such as starting out a website showcasing you as an enterprising wedding photographer, or setting up several social media accounts that represent you both as a pro and as a business, or printing out business cards, etc. It doesn’t even matter if you haven’t officially launched as a Bristol wedding photographer and opened shop yet. All that basically matters is the fact that you are motivated to eventually reach out and go ahead with the big steps in the future through the little steps that you are taking today. Today is the time for you to stop thinking about things and to just start doing them instead. You will not always be guaranteed of success and the like but it helps a lot knowing that you were at least brave enough to try and take a shot at it in more ways than one.
Gain contact and be in the same circles
Try to gain contact and be in the same social circles with the other wedding photographers out there in your area. This will keep you in the loop when it comes to industry related updates and events and it is an exercise that will really be able to more or less help you grow as a wedding photographer who is still working on being able to establish himself in this extremely competitive and somewhat crowded niche.
Make friends with other photographers
Making friends with other wedding photographers will also give you the opportunity to get some really honest assessments and feedback about your skill and your prowess as a wedding photographer. Look up social media groups of wedding photographers in your area and try to see if you will more or less be able to join them. Keep yourself active and updated. Join in on conversations as much as you possibly can. Over time, you will be able to make use of your connections more and more but this is a pretty good place for you to start.
