6 Hour trip up north
Last weekend I spent the day mainly in a car or running around cars. I took a 400 mile round trip up to Gateshead for Bella Auto a supercar event and Kulturschock by Eurospotter. I was originally just going for Kulturshock but nearer the date I found Bella Auto down the road. Due to the distance I wanted to make the most of it and made sure I was up in Gatehead for 10:00 and left at 16:30 after everything was done.
It was certainly worth the 6 hour drive, this was because of the new content to publish on two sites, practise behind the camera but also reach out to a new area within the UK. I managed to take around 700 images and published 300 over at www.kingdomautomotive.co.uk . This gave me insight to a new location and gives me more information to feedback to automotive clients down the road.
I am also worried about taking a day out to travel across the UK to go to an event. However I always try and gain as much value as possible. Having Kingdom means I can access more of the UK and gain value and exposure through event coverage, new followers, new leads and business but also for my own value to show clients. For example if someone wants to gain more clients up north and is looking for a supercar event I can give insight making me valuable than just a photographer.
There is so many photographers out there and what I have seen is knowledge and insight into the automotive world is putting me a head of the competition. Make sure to check out a few of my images from the weekend! If you need a photographer let me know today, I photograph a variety of things but mainly cars and events!
Enjoy your week!
