A week in the life of a Folio Consultant….

Well that was the week that was.

Over the past week I prepared for and held two workshops on sales and marketing and quoting and negotiating, to a full house at Studio Lumiere, in liason with the AIPA.

I sourced photographers and prepared folios for some really lovely briefs- one from Australia, two from Japan and one from Singapore.

I finalised the accounts for the production company Our Production Team in New Zealand which I sold to my two top producers earlier this year.

I held an afternoon folio consulting meeting with a client in the Auckland Art Gallery

I  spent two days preparing the first drafts of three separate folios.

All this on top of an impromptu (but necessary) drive from Auckland to Paeroa to Hamilton and back with my son,  feeding the family and all the friends of my daughter who seem to turn up weekly at dinner time, and managing to practice Astanga Yoga 5 days at The Yoga Academy.

Did I say I’m ready for Christmas? Not yet…but this weekend it’s all on! Just two more folios to go and a meeting with a client and an outline for my seminars coming up next year…….
