Project i - Dualism (Tips)

Ok - I know I haven't really spoken much about Project i - Dualism as yet but it has begun - and is now running. I will get back to a prologue at a later stage. Time is of the essence.

So the Tips you have come to see:

1. Awareness
Get ALL your friends to know that you are in a competition.
This can be done via status updates. Links to the Lee Folkard Photography Fan Page. Links to the Project i - Dualism Album. Create an Event on Facebook. It's free and can be used to create a domino-type effect, which is essentially what you want to amass the required votes.

2. Share
Facebooks platform enables you to share just about anything. All the links that you used to create awareness should be shared. You can share links via, wall posts, status updates, profile pages, event walls, even in individual messages to target friends one at a time. I would go as far as to share links via Facebook Chat if you do use it.

3. Step Process
Once you have their attention - people need to be aware that they need to LIKE the Lee Folkard Photography Fan Page first. Then locate your picture. For those who have difficulty in locating the album on the page - this will not be a problem with the many Direct Links you have posted all over the place.
Once they find you picture they need only type the word - VOTE as a comment under the picture.

4. Networking
The most important factor of the whole voting process is that of networking. You may have 300 facebook friends and another entrant may have 1000 facebook friends - The important thing is that you get the friends of your friends to vote and then their friends. The Domino Effect. What you want is the people that do take the time to vote for you to let their friends know about this competition. So once people vote for you - ASK them to share the link with their friends. ASK them to make status updates etc. And so the process should fall - and YOU will start accumulating VOTES.

I hope that some of these tips have been of use to you. Direct your friends to this blog post so that they can have a better understanding of how this whole thing works.

Good Luck to all involved and thank you for participating in a Lee Folkard Photography Project.

Website Update*

I hadn't updated my website in quite some time - to be specific - end of July 2010.

A really cool change up is the inclusion of my facebook fan page - which has live stream and a direct link to the page. --- Actually I have even included this in my Blog! see side panel :)

The fan page has been a great success and I am glad that I finally decided to get one up - to date- I have 3000+ fans :)

It provides an  easy means of communication with people that either wish to use my services in the future or just appreciate photography.

A projects section has been added to the website which aims to notify people of projects that Lee Folkard Photography will be involved in. Past, Present and Future.

The Gallery section has also been updated - if you have been involved in a Lee Folkard Photography photoshoot - there is a high chance at least one of your pictures will be up.

There is even a link to the latest newsletter - for those that haven't signed up to the mailing list!

Let me know what you think!

Last weekend I covered the 10th Wedding Anniversary of Melissa and Yaseen.
An intimate gathering of family and close friends.
To the future. (",)

Life | Moment | Time

[Life] changes its beauty all the time,

Sometimes it’s a shade, sometimes life is sunlight

Live every [moment] here to your heart’s content

The [time] that is here may not be tomorrow.


"You are wrong if you think that the joy of life comes principally from human relationships.

God’s placed it all around us,

it’s in everything, in anything we can experience.

People just need to change the way they look at those things."
