A couple of months ago Belong Magazine published an article I wrote sharing "Tips for Successful Blogger + Photographer Collaborations." True to the theme of the article, I collaborated with Brittni Mehlhoff of Paper & Stitch on the images. ISSUE 07 was all about care and collaboration and featured several great pieces written by female entrepreneurs in various industries. For example, Cyndie Spiegel, business coach and founder of The Collective (of Us), wrote about "Cultivating Business Relationships That Matter: The Pursuit of Genuine in a (Ridiculously) Social World" and Latasha Haynes of Ike & Tash wrote about the BLINK Conference.
In my piece, I shared the following tips in detail:
- Do your research.
- Come to agreement.
- Respect the art of both fields.
- Come prepared on shoot day.
- Follow general etiquette after the shoot.
