    Hi Everyone,

    After years of admiring the Flying Solo community silently, I finally took the plunge this month and started my own Photography business — RishiGraphy (website link below). I am energised more than ever to go after my creative dreams. Having done my homework, spending the last 2 years honing my photography technique, building my portfolio, and studying the market, there is no better time than now to launch my business formally.

    What I Can Do For You
    Photographing people, lifestyle and events is my passion. My ultimate goal is to fire up my creativity to get the best photographs for you possible as per your brief. I am based in Sydney, NSW and offer a range of photography solutions from portfolios to personal branding, marketing, corporate events, concerts, and more.

    Welcome Rishi and congrats on moving forward with your new business. It’s an exciting time! It would be good if those seasoned in running businesses could maintain that excitement from the beginning and the andrenalin, but I expect that reality sets in, or routine and we calm down and hopefully enjoy the process.

    Love your work. I’m a keen photographer myself but concentrate on nature mainly and alas, I don’t know there’s the potential for income the same there is for doing events and taking photos of people. I wish you all the best with it and am off to visit your Facebook page!

    Very Impressive portfolio.

    I love portrait photography. This is really very good. I work with images on
    day by day basis and this in my opinion is to a very high standard.

    I think you have a lot of talent and I am sure you will get plenty of work your way.

    Good luck with your enterprise I will be keeping your details.

    All the best
    Robbie

    Thanks, Kathie! You are very right about striving to maintain the excitement and the adrenalin. I find even looking at other photographers’ work very inspiring at times when I feel run down. And of course, it is fantastic to have a supportive community like Flying Solo!

    Thanks, again!

    Welcome aboard! You have some great work in your portfolio. It is good to see a photographer perfect their skills before starting a business, not ‘I just bought an slr, can I shoot your wedding for $500’

    The quality of your work will set you apart. Best of luck with the new venture

    Thanks, Simon! You are so right … competing on price alone doesn’t benefit anyone in the long run, especially with little or no skill otherwise. At the end of the day, one pretty much gets what one pays for.

    Cheers,

    Hi Rishi,

    Welcome and well done. You have some lovely work on your website. :)

    Best of luck with the business. Should you ever want to shoot the breeze with another photographer, let me know – Ive done events in the past as well (and whilst I am in Melbourne, email and skype work well lol).

    Congratulations Rishi,
    You have some great shots on your website. About a year ago my wife Michelle took her photography hobby and turned it into a business too (I gave her a big push).
    I’ve enjoyed working with her to get things started.
    It is a lot of fun with a lot more variety in the work that comes her way than she ever expected.

    All the best with your new venture. Im sure you will do well. Most do when they follow their passion, and the support of the Flying Solo community is amazing for getting all of the business basics in order.
    Cheers,
    Steve
