In this episode, Colton Jacobs, a Seattle-based adventure photographer shares his thoughts on finding and keeping clients. Colton has shot with many brands such as Filson, K2, Hest, and many other reputable brands.
He answers some of the following questions: Does your portfolio matter? How do you use social media? Does cold calling work? How do you manage the feast or famine cycles?
