View Full Version : Informational Packet
1st of March 2006 (Wed), 15:55
I know most photographers have a packet of information together that they sound out when they get an inquiry. I'm trying to assemble mine. If you have one, what's in yours? I'm assuming a listing of packages and prices and a contract but I'm not sure what else. Also, how is it presented? In a folder?
PS - Only second time posting so go easy! ;)

I don't mail out packets, since my rates and portfolio are on my commercial website, people know what I do and how much it costs already. Instead I ask people to come and see me, I talk to them for a half hour or so, and hand them a contract and printed versions of everything to take away.
When my packages are more settled i'll get a glossy brochure printed, and put things into a nice packet, just to give a more professional look.

Yep, all info on the website and 100% of the contacts with inquieries about free dates have been through email.

Considering a lot of the people that seek me are all country-fied, alot of them don't have web access etc. and if they do, my website only shows photo's anyway because i have no clue about keeping a website!!!
I am in the process of doing up a nice package, im getting folio's from a stationery place, and putting in there, a contract and check list (This gives them an idea on what they are getting plus what they need to know about me before signing) price list, and possibly a dvd or cd with some photo's or slideshow.
Also a business card with all my contacts on there.
It is going to the extreme a bit...but while i have a small client basis i can afford to take my time with this...when i get bigger ill make things simpler.
Hope this helps :)

Del, you should move to a smaller country, like Sweden... everyone is wired here (pun intended). :D
If people have computers, but not Internet, a CD might be a good idea to send out materials, so you don't spend a fortune on prints, that you'll never see again, even if they sign with you. And it might be a good idea to have a small pamphlet printed - although check for the images so they look good in four color print. But if you have that printed, it might be too old too soon, and not representing you as your skills increase and you have *even better* images to show in your portfolio.
