Work can come from anywhere
I recently shot the Spring/Summer range of clothing for Jeans Direct, a UK based online clothing retailer. I landed the job because my new studio is two doors down from one of their storage facilities. It just goes to show that new clients and business can come from any situation.
Now obviously it was important that my work was of a sufficient quality and that I inspired confidence in Jeans Direct to give me the catalogue, but these chance meetings can take place at any time, so it's important to be ready for them and to show any prospective client that you are willing and able to do the job, should they wish to hire you.
