Want fifty bucks? I've decided to offer a bounty... anyone you refer to me who books a paid shoot (of any sort - portrait, product, event, etc ) will earn you fifty dollars. Its the easiest money you'll ever make. Let me know if you're interested!

Where are you?

I can't get clients either.

I'm in Bergen County, NJ - 8 miles from NYC. Its not really that I can't get clients - I just find that lately I'm taking everything that comes along. If I was getting referrals from friends, I'd have more of a selection of jobs to choose from I think. And most people could use an extra fifty bucks anyway, right? :)

Then perhaps you could advise me on getting clients. Do you advertise? If so, where and how?

A good portion is due to word of mouth. I also really have just saturated every possible outlet online - put a portfolio everywhere, and someone's bound to find it! It also depends upon what sort of work you're looking for - wanna shoot headshots? Make friends with people in the tv/film/stage world, and so on. I have yet to do a direct mailing, but I think that can be effective for some stuff - probably more so in advertising. Also just spend a fair amount of time searching - craigslist, etc for gigs.
I've also gotten work from clients who found me through my work at iStockphoto. I guess it just comes down to saturating your market. Of course, I don't know what its like out where you are.
