    I think it went well!

    Met a lot of people, and there were some that seemed really interested. I collected contact info when I could, and sent out about 40 emails right after the show and have had two people respond so far asking for more info. And hopefully more to come (if not now, then at least later down the line).

    I get ads from you from time to time on FB -- one thing I noticed in your last to sign up for your "comic"con shoots is that the survey monkey link you're to sign up is dumping generic text about survey monkey under the image -- so it reads like a survey monkey ad and less like a sign-up for a photoshoot ad.

    Sounds like it was worth the investment, and now you’ll be ready to do more.

    I’m the worst person to give this advice because I don’t follow it myself... but, I’m only a teacher and no one gives a crap what I look like at work, haha. It might be worth getting your suit tailored so it fits better. Everything you put out in your booth is classy and trendy, and you clash a little bit with the boxy suit jacket. It looks a little car salesman-ish. I think a trendier suit might be appopriate for this type of work (especially when you are selling yourself).

    @Vtec44 has mentioned this a few times...I can’t remember specific threads, but I’m sure if you look at his messages you’ll find some photos.

    I can also bugger off, haha.

    I do need to lose some weight though haha, and a thinner material suit would be nice.

    You clean up well when you shave and put a suit on!!!! It's all about exposure, get your name out enough and the bookings will come. I'm sure you learned a lot on this one, that will make the next one, and the next one even more productive. Good Job!!!

    Haha, thanks. I hate being clean shaven. I normally rock the stubble. If anything, I at least got some Facebook likes out of it lol. But really hope some bookings come out of this.

    This is the first time that my name has been mentioned in a positive light... well I think it's possitive. :D But yeah suit fitment says a lot about your image (as a person and as a brand) but I think Daryll did good for his first time ever. :) You're a photographer and you want to be the person to set the tone as far as visual presentation. You want your outfit to be thoughtful and fit right.

    For reference if anyone ever want to know or to lazy to Google :p . This is obviously dependent on your body type and the guy in the photo needs a nice watch LOL. This has absolutely no bearing on how well the day went for Daryll at his first show. :)


    This is how I *THINK* I look in the mirror...

    This is how I *ACTUALLY* look in person... :D
