I think to answer this effectively, we need to know a little bit more about your business. But as a consultant and freelancer, on and off, for the past 13 years, I can say without a doubt that if you are in a service-based business, you are most likely to get your first client (and probably most of your clients, period) with a referral from within your network: who in your family, your friends, your past colleagues, has a connection to your ideal client? Which of them might know of a person or business in need of your services? Seek these people out and let them know that you'd like an introduction.
Eli's unique eye for great design began with his love of underwater imagery. Now his art and photography in any environment are a joy to behold. Visit www.outofthedeepblue.com and you will find a remarkable display of drawings, photography, and industrial design.
Eli has done great work for Consultants 2 Business -- both in photography and video. His work is always of high quality, on-time, and within budget and he has also worked great with our clients and our internal team understanding our requirements and exceeding them. Definitely a pleasure to work with, very creative, and someone I will continue to utilize as a sub-contractor for my business.
Elijah is an extremely talented and creative person. He strives for excellence in everything he does from his photography, art, graphics work to writing and editing. With hard work and determination, Elijah's partnership with Eric Cheng has produced one of the most beautiful underwater imaging publications I've ever seen. He is sure to be successful in anything he chooses to apply himself to. He is a pleasure to work with.
In the impeccable fashion of Stieglitz, Edward Weston and The New York School...Eli delivers moments in time that are rich in visual landscape. His images are timeless and sophisticated. He wraps his talent in a distinct and current knowledge of environmental culture and community. Definitely one to watch.
