Network for success: create a photo community online

Photographers often think of themselves as solitary workers, operating out of their own studio or even from their own home. However networking has just as much importance in the photography industry as any other, and attracting other experts in a similar genre to follow your work can help you grow your business. 

A great way to do this without introducing an overly corporate tone, as can be the case when interacting on a professional networking platform such as Linkedin, is to set up and curate a photo community.
