Speaker 2: 00:05 Welcome to from nothing to profit a photographer's podcast with Matt and Kaia where each week they talk to photographers. I wrote what is working in their business now so you can swipe those ideas and grow your business faster. Matt: 00:22 Hey everybody, Pat Flynn here. Hey, today I have an awesome episode. I'm actually in Boise, Idaho with my friends Sam Marvin. Um, I actually spoke at the PPA Idaho Convention this week and while I was here I was staying with Mark Lewis, Sam and having a really good time seeing what he's doing in his studio. So we thought while we had a minute before his model meetings has senior model meetings tonight, we would do a quick podcast. So for, if you guys don't know who Sam Marvin is, he's obviously in Boise, Idaho and he has an amazing, amazing business up here with high school seniors. Um, does a really good job.

Like, what do you think being a high school senior photographer, like what would you tell other photographers that they need to be focused on besides, you know, making those relationships with their clients and building self worth? But besides that, like what do you think working right now really well in your business? Sam: 02:11 In my business, I think, uh, the thing that really does work is, well, I mean the, the biggest challenge in the senior industry is that you really are trying to please two completely different types of clients at the same time, uh,
