    Going Pro: How to Promote Your Freelance Photography Services

    Last updated 1 month ago

    So you’ve stocked up on the latest equipment for your digital camera and brushed up on your shooting methods and techniques. You’re close to fulfilling your life-long dream of being a professional photographer—the only thing left to do is get your name out there. If you’re ready to put your skills on display, here are a few tips for promoting your freelance photography services to potential clients.

    Utilize Social Media
    One of the best ways to promote your freelance photography services is by utilizing social media. Not only are platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram free to use, but they have the potential to reach millions of users around the world. Make sure to use the correct hashtags to make your work more discoverable, and encourage your friends to share the photographs they love most with their friends and followers.

    Put Together a Portfolio
    As you gather more followers and start to garner a reputation online, you will want to put together a portfolio showcasing your best work. Even if you build a stunning website, make sure to have a physical portfolio to show to potential clients. Photo prints often showcase your work better than digital pictures, so it is worth the investment to put together an actual portfolio.

    Build a Website
    Speaking of websites, you will need a site dedicated specifically to your photography services. Even if you have a Facebook page with all of your contact information, clients will want to see that you have a website of your own. This demonstrates a professionalism that is desired in the freelance photography industry.

    Camera Land in NYC is the best resource for up and coming freelance photographers. In addition to our vast selection of cameras and camera equipment, we offer photo print services and online demos that can help you get the most out of your gear. To lean more, visit Camera Land today or call us at (646) 789-4830.

    Deal of The Day!

    Last updated 2 months ago

    As I am sure you are aware by now, last year we established a "Deal of the Day" section on our site. This, "Deal of the Day" is posted everyday I am here at work, assuming I find the time each day to do this, lol. 
    We buy lots of demos, close-outs and assorted new product deals and sometimes we wind up with enough to offer crazy cheap deal on something awesome. Todays offer is on a new binocular.

    Today's "Deal of the Day" is on an amazing binocular, the Leupold BX-4 Mckinley HD 8x42mm #117789 which we have lowered from $599.99 to only $449.99

     

    Extra Low-Dispersion Glass Objectives
    Phase-Corrected BaK4 Roof Prisms
    Fully Multicoated Optics
    64° Apparent Viewing Angle
    Closed Bridge Configuration
    Magnesium Alloy Chassis
    Center Focus Wheel
    Nitrogen-Filled Fogproof / Waterproof
    Twist-Up Eyecups
    Rubber Armored Housing

    The 8x42 BX-4 McKinley HD Binocular from Leupold houses high-definition optics inside a lightweight weather-sealed body that is both comfortable to handle and built to last. This general purpose optic delivers the imaging performance and durability needed by hunters and birders alike. Leupold equips the BX-4 with their Advanced HD Lens System, which combines extra-low dispersion objective lenses, phase-corrected BaK4 prisms, and proprietary optical coatings. The view transmitted by the BX-4 is bright and sharp, revealing impressive detail and color rendition across its expansive 64° apparent viewing angle.

    In addition to its noteworthy optical performance, the BX-4 McKinley binocular also features a weather-resistant housing that is nitrogen-filled and built to perform in extreme humidity and heavy rainfall. When conditions turn wet or cold, several of the binocular's features help the observer maintain their grip; including textured rubber armoring and rubberized ridges on the focus wheel. Contoured thumb rests on the underside of the housing improve comfort and reduce the visibility of hand tremor by helping to balance the binocular in the viewer's hand.

    Twist-up rubber eyecups with multiple click-stop positions as well as a generous 20mm eye relief outfit the binocular for a comfortable viewing experience even while wearing eyeglasses. A tripod adapter socket and an 8-foot minimum focus distance further complement the range of features that make the BX-4 McKinley HD a full-featured optic for close to mid-range glassing tasks. Leupold warrants the BX-4 binocular to be free of defects for the lifetime of the original owner.

    Optical Performance
    8x magnification, 42mm objectives
    Fully multicoated optics
    Extra-low dispersion objective lenses
    BaK4 prisms with phase-corrective coating
    8° angle of view, 64° apparent viewing angle
    8 ft close focus distance
    20mm eye relief

    Use and Handling
    Twist-up rubber eyecups
    Mounting socket for tripod adapter
    Slip-resistant center focus wheel

    Construction Details
    Nitrogen-filled housing for fogproof / waterproof performance
    Magnesium alloy chassis
    Slip-resistant rubber armored body
    Textured gripping surfaces
    Ergonomic thumb rests
    29 oz weight

    Specs:
    Interpupillary Distance: 56.00 / 74.00
    Actual Magnification: 8
    Objective Clear Aperture (mm): 42.00 mm
    Linear Field of View (ft/1000 yd): 425.00 ft
