Not a whole lot of places, physically. I’ve just been putting my eggs in various baskets, as it were. That sounds gross. No, what I mean is just that I’ve been trying to find work, and I had some stuff planned for Friday, Saturday AND Sunday but literally all of it fell through for various reasons (some of them my sleep schedule), and I photographed my Friday for a Day In the Life feature and you’ll get that eventually. My landlady came back from vacation, I paid part of my rent but not all of it because I didn’t have the money. Still don’t. Which is why I’ve been listing things on PeoplePerHour and submitting proposals on Elance and whatnot. This is what I have up at the moment:
- Logos for £90 (usual price £150+) till I make rent: [ buy here ]
- One-page brochures, media kits, catalogs and more, all for £60: [ buy here ] (if you purchase a media kit directly from me, I’ll throw in an extra page for you – again, offer valid till I make rent)
- Proofreading at £8/200 words (I’m very good at this): [ buy here ]
My Etsy shop is still open, though it will be suspended on August 21 unless I somehow make enough money to cover rent, food, and my Etsy bill (which is just $24, but here we are).
I opened a shop on Crated.com, though I still need to fill it up properly. So many pictures to edit, you guys. So many. I want to open shop on RedBubble soon as well. Crated carries prints (framed and unframed) and canvases.
Sidebar ads are available for £20 for 45 days. If anyone’s got sponsored post leads, do send them my way.
Today I shared three portraits from a session last month on UK Bloggers, linking up with #mysundayphoto. I’m still doing blogger outreach for this, and would be happy to do a full 90-minute portrait shoot for the price of a mini blogger shoot (£60) if anyone’s interested in that. I also really, really want to do bridal and cosplay and will seriously work for donations the amount of your choosing (plus travel expenses). If you know anyone who needs that kind of stuff… tell them about me? I also do product photography, which I need to add to Etsy when I get my listing privileges back. It’s all listed on my sad out-of-date portfolio though.
Actually, have an hourlie on PPH too.
My website (which I won in a giveaway) is still under construction. To be expected, but still frustrating. I just want to have a proper storefront that doesn’t charge me for listing things. Then again I could start with Crated and submit photos to stock sites, and I just need to start on my backlog to do that.
I got halfway through my CV last Sunday and stalled again.
Finished a blog design for Victoria Sneden, a logo for a peopleperhour proposal that I haven’t heard back from since (at least I only sent low quality files?), got halfway through a media kit template for Tessa of Handle the Heat (did hers last month). Last week I redesigned Hungry Healthy Happy. I need to post all this work to my blog at some point. And do more work.
I’m also thinking of offering design and photography consultations, and photography workshops in person, as well as a biweekly ‘let me critique your site’ thing. Not sure how to go about listing those things or where. I was going to try google helpouts but I got stuck at Google Wallet. The hell is that?
Basically, hire me! Hire me. Hiiiiire me. Hire me.
… Hang on.
