MpixPro welcomes guest blog contributor – Dale Benfield


In an effort to provide more relevant tools to today’s photographers, we
will be expanding the scope of the blog in 2010. The first logical step
is to have friends of MpixPro contribute periodically to the blog. One
of our first guest bloggers is Dale Benfield. Dale is a very successful
wedding and portrait photographer in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Dale has
taken the progressive Northwest corner of Arkansas by storm these past
couple of years . His easy going style, creativity, eye for quality and
willingness to share have made Dale an excellent source of information
for photographers looking to improve.

Thanks Dale – we look forward to your thoughts on photography, running a
studio and working with customers!

If you have any topics you would like to have Dale cover please let us hear from you.

    Dale and his lovely assistant have some of the most awesome and beautiful work I have ever seen.

    I wish I were twenty something and getting married all over again, there would be no other choice to consider but Dale.

    What talent!

  2. Dale says:

    Thanks, Gina! You’re sweet. And Meredith is “lovely” isn’t she?! 🙂

  3. Lanne says:

    Thanks so much for sharing your tips for success Dale. You are proof that hardwork and determination to succeed pay off. Overnight success is a rare thing and it takes more than awesome images to run a successful business 🙂

    I love the idea of tagging vendors on Facebook! Great article. ~Anda (a fellow [b] schooler)

    Thanks so much for sharing Dale! There are some great tips in here and I can use all of them. I get so bad about updating my blog – I need to really stick with it.

  6. Glenda says:

    Lots to think about – thanks Dale for your giving spirit!

  7. Jo-Anne Kyle says:

    Great advice as always, Dale. Tip number 6 – be awesome like Dale and your clients will LOVE you!

  8. Ah! It said there were no comments! Stupid blog.

    @Lanne – you’re super welcome! I read somewhere, and it’s kind of true… it took me ten years to become an overnight success!

    @Anda – Thanks! We actually did a video a LONG time ago in the bschool classroom about this – that’s where I first shared this. I wonder if there is anything else from that (I haven’t seen it in forever!) Also, LOVE your new branding and promo shots! 🙂

    @Sara Beth – You’re welcome! It’s very hard some days – just like exercising. But the more you do it, the more you feel good about yourself afterword.

    @Glenda – Of course! I’m a giver. 😉

  9. @Jo-Anne – ha ha! You’re so sweet!

    Great post Dale! Don’t know how you go about with no credit card though! I have to pay for all my albums that way!!
    Thanks again!

  11. Hey Mark,
    Are your albums for weddings you’ve already shot? We make sure and put money from a wedding into a savings account (I use ING, but your bank might have better rates) and then transfer out when they order their album. We don’t use any of their money until after the wedding is shot – we don’t like to feel like we’re working for free.
    Hope that helps!
    Dale
