Hi,

I am a wedding photographer, and frankly a good one. My work was published in multiple bridal publications and won awards. I would like to establish long term relationship with wedding planners in Southern California. I tried called calling, and only 1-2% get back to me - they accept brochures and albums for display but never send me work. What do I do wrong? Please, advice.

Thank you
Denis

One thing you can do is to join NACE (National Association of event professionals) and ISES (International Society of Event Professionals). Go to their monthly meetings and network. I went there, ask for business cards and permission to call to show my work and usually they gave me one.
If you good at networking - it will work. Especially if you take part in some of the comities they have.
Good luck!
