Gerhard Coetzer Photography ~076 480 9191~ Photographer in Hartenbos, Mossel Bay, George, Knysna, Plettenberg Bay.

Welcome to my blog for some interesting information and the latest shoots.

NO, I am not a writer, so I am sure the literary gurus will find lots of mistakes.

Luckily, I am hired for my photographis skills, and not my writing. 


I look at social media and all the shit that's going on in the world, and I wonder where all of this is going to end.


Most people fear change, while I embrace it most of the time. BUT! Not all change is good. 


When I see all the new social media apps, and the way people interact, and what they post... I sometimes just sit and wonder "what the hell?". I hear the marketing gurus say, you have to upate posts and blogs and use this app and that app... I don't have time for this, and I don't want to.


I have to find better ways to improve my marketing! But how? If you are not constantly on facebook or any other app, your profile just fade away. I have spent a small fortune on advertising, some work, some don't, but it's not enough. 


There is a limit on what I will spend on marketing, and that limit has nothing to do with money. I will not become a slave to a phone or computer screen.


So? If I don't post a weekly blog, or 3 times a day on facebook, It does not mean I gave up, or that I am gone. I would rather have a chat face to face, because I believe in quality service. I am not one of those "wholesale" a thousand photos for cheap kind of photographer. 


That's it. Plain and simple.
