Hellooooooo! A new episode of the podcast is now available!
I sat down to talk over the phone with my friend, Leighton DaCosta, about having an ‘interstate mobile’ photography studio (and what that means for your business when you work across state lines) as well as discussing teaching workshops in foreign countries.
He just taught a workshop in Jamaica focusing on marketing/shooting ‘transient clients’ – think destination weddings and portrait sessions. It’s really interesting. Give the episode a listen!
Leighton DaCosta, or “LD” as many know him by, is a Wedding and Fine Art Portrait Photographer based in Charleston, South Carolina. He started his photography business 15 years ago while serving in the Navy. Due to the military requirements, he learned to make his studio “interstate mobile” as he has operated for extended periods in Virginia, Florida, Utah, Georgia, and now, South Carolina. He’s conducted photo assignments in exotic and remote places such as Dubai, Jamaica, and Aruba; as well as several years flying over Afghanistan.
When not creating content of his own, Leighton diligently works at educating photographers and others in the industry in not only content creation but also in business practices geared for the creative.
Leighton is a graduate of Saint Leo University and a current M.B.A. student at the University of Miami.
