Mentors, photography workshops and relative actions

So,

a much needed post….

In a span of three months we got the company registered, got paper work done, bank account opened, did with an initial business model, got contracts done, and upped the social media quotient ( read our fb page and twitter account) . During this space we got upset with each other, questioned a lot, were critical and debated quite a bit on strategy. And we mean literally: right from whether having a twitter handle (as everyone at HCC is social media averse but its business), to registering it as what type of entity, choosing a bank, which photographers: do we go for quality, do we go for professionalism, do we go for enthusiasm ,do we go for a mix and so on .

Going forward we are not in a rush to be after commercial success or funding. This year the next things in line would be 1) Building effective website 2) Building a pool of say 6-8 photographers: we have 4 right now; and then focus on them. 3) Conducting photography workshops in India which are worth the buck 4) Build our processes. Our focus will be on improving systems. We really mean going down to the very detail of work flow. Internally improve decision making and information flow between the team, and have clarity of interactions with outside world. Refining our pedagogy of workshops, having a 360 degree feedback form for mentors, responding via digital media and keeping a track of mentored students from workshop will be of importance….

About happy camera club

Happy camera club is an initiative brought upon by a thought to teach the less privileged basic aspects of a skill like photography which further can be used by them in their day to day life. To leave them with an additional skill set to choose from. A win-win situation ,we aim to work with organizations and people who support this cause.
