Being a successful photographer isn't just about taking great pictures, it also involves being business minded and getting your name out there.
And one of the most effective ways to do this right now is using social media -- which is why it's awfully handy that Photoshelter have just launched 'The Photographer's Social Media Handbook'.
The free digital download explains how to optimise Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, and Twitter to generate new business and build a following from the viewpoint of a photographer.
Allen Murabayashi, PhotoShelter CEO said: "Mastering social media can be instrumental in marketing your brand and growing your photography business, but it's no easy task.
"This Handbook addresses head on specific features and strategies photographers can use to make the most of Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and LinkedIn and grow their professional network."
The handbook is available for download here.
