My friend used to work for them, and I got to collaborate with them. She said that if you'd actually want to work with them, you should just get in touch with L'Oreal Canada! Apparently there's always a demand for male influencers with gorgeous hair 😉 Reply VHGfilms says: August 31, 2018 at 3:07 pm Yo chris thank you so much! I know everybody says this but whatever. You have inspired me to make a youtube channel filled with content just like yours. Everyday I try to work as hard as I possibly can on my weekly videos and it is fun. I love doing youtube and feel like I am meant to be doing this eventhough my channel is nothing right now. I make tutorials, vlogs and tech videos, but sometimes I feel like I am being disingenuous when I overly clickbait. Anyway I just want to say thank you for being such an inspiration. Thank you for letting me rant. Reply Wariki says: August 31, 2018 at 3:10 pm Chris I'm glad you're part of the Squarespace family! Congrats man!

Reply Alex Lancashire Photography says: August 31, 2018 at 3:27 pm I have "seekerofthegrail.com" My techy nephew bought it for me for a laugh. Chris.Not yet set up a web site. Reply Jenny O'Driscoll says: August 31, 2018 at 3:28 pm So the hair website is a hilarious and excellent teaching tool. It sounds like you had so much fun making it and I imagine you laughing at yourself the whole time. Then when you sat down to shoot the video you realized you were delivering a serious and informative topic and were trying not to continue laughing about your hilarious website. This was a really helpful and informative video, thanks Chris! Reply Lloyd Story and Film says: August 31, 2018 at 3:32 pm This is PERFECT right now! Great timing and as always, thank you for the insight ✌️ Reply JamesKnechtel says: August 31, 2018 at 3:33 pm Love it!

Reply Mostafa Kandil says: August 31, 2018 at 5:15 pm Thanks Chris! <3 Reply Jacob Hallberg says: August 31, 2018 at 5:35 pm I can't remember who said it but I once heard someone say "A website is like your home on the Internet". Just because you can rent a hotel room doesn't mean you always should. It's good to have your own domain Reply Gowtham V says: August 31, 2018 at 5:37 pm dude u are reaching 200k soo soooooo fast than reaching 100k!! great job, love your content, be inspired♥ Reply Alex Stettler says: August 31, 2018 at 5:40 pm Amazing video, definitely giving me inspiration to really start serious photography! Reply inadventureland says: August 31, 2018 at 5:55 pm interesting. it seems many photographers and videographers use squarespace these days. I’m still going with wordpress and actually like it. after a long time using the same design, I’m now just in the process of redesigning my page. Reply Dunna Did It says: August 31, 2018 at 5:57 pm Did anyone else go check out chrishaushair.com after the intro of this haha 😂 Reply Soham Parikh says: August 31, 2018 at 6:59 pm Is there any big photographer on YouTube who is not sponsored by Squarespace lol Reply hershy314 says: August 31, 2018 at 7:09 pm Another informative video, definitely things to think about for when I get to the point of needing a website.

Reply pvcollectives says: August 31, 2018 at 10:20 pm This was amazing!!! Reply STADFISH TV says: August 31, 2018 at 10:25 pm See this is how you do a sponsored video properly, give clear and concise information that is useful about photography, then explain how the website can actually help me; without sounding like you’ve just been payed to say it. Well done. Reply Curlyfries Studios says: August 31, 2018 at 10:50 pm Hey man, nice video. Would you recommend a getting a music subscription(epidemic sound) or a website first (squarespace)?

Also I would be really thankful for feedback on my IG @majklcz because I have started to shot 2 months ago and i really love that 😊. Reply TRAFALGAR LAW says: September 1, 2018 at 6:21 am I like it Reply J Zimbres says: September 1, 2018 at 10:10 am Chris , I am terrified of people but I love persons and I love connecting to one person at a time but have a hard time doing my thing amongst larger groups of people . How do I make my art in service of people if i have such a hard time putting myself out there ?

Am so glad I subbed your channel. Reply Louis Jones says: September 2, 2018 at 1:10 pm Hey Chris, what template did you use for the KnowHaumedia website? Reply Treasure of knowledge says: September 2, 2018 at 4:31 pm I have a question?Can I use the photographs in YouTube and Instagram which I sell online. Reply Jason Dahlby says: September 3, 2018 at 5:37 pm In this video you mentioned going to a car dealership and taking photos of Mercedes Benz, and then adding on that you worked with them. Is that necessarily true to say if the Mercedes company itself didn't have any involvement of you taking those photos? In other words can you say you've "worked with" a large brand like that when you just go out and take photos of their product? Reply Aaqil Nizam says: September 5, 2018 at 12:10 pm Hi idk if this is any good as a topic but maybe could you do a kind of "marketing secrets" video, as i am 18 and does some photography and occasinal videos, wondering what marketing is like if i want to start this as a small business Reply AH Imaging says: September 5, 2018 at 9:05 pm Copy?

Reply Fit Love Power says: September 13, 2018 at 9:53 pm Hey Chris already in process of building site for our fitness media company but thank you for the in depth of each page for breakdown it really helped out. I had a way wanted things to look but thanks for the clarification. Reply Ohyo's Corner says: September 14, 2018 at 7:01 am This video is sooooo much worth it than those “photography workshops” that costs $$$$$! This is a thousand dollar lessons in my opinion, and I would like to say thank you for sharing all of your knowledge from photography to marketing. THIS IS HOW YOU MAKE A SPONSORED VIDEO!! Reply AAR MEDIA says: September 16, 2018 at 3:48 pm Hey Chris… New subscriber here… Ive always watched your videos but never subbed.. sorry for that.

And now I'm just more interested in making me a better web page! My old page was already old when I released it 10 years ago, but now I can't even show it to people! Haha! I'm a Norwegian photographer and videographer, and I want to create a visual and easy page for my old and new partners. Do you think it's possible to build a nice page with my old WordPress ting, or should I make new and better and change the game and start playing with the good guys? 🙂 Reply Emily Aliem says: November 14, 2018 at 9:41 pm Question. I currently work for an agency but want to branch out my own marketing. Is it inappropriate to list the logos of the clients I'm working with my current company? Reply Frederick Films says: November 15, 2018 at 10:03 pm love it Reply Frederick Films says: November 15, 2018 at 10:05 pm ads for wix pop up lol Reply Aidan Hackwood says: November 17, 2018 at 11:06 am Can you do a tutorial on how to grow hair… Always fancied having long hair probably just slightly shorter than yours Chris Reply RAJDEEP MITRA says: November 18, 2018 at 7:03 am Bro what's your official website Reply Heather Zolen says: December 10, 2018 at 5:34 pm But can I touch it?

Thanks Reply TrevorDBrown says: January 30, 2019 at 5:45 pm I can't seem to figure out how to add clients I've worked with to the site. I could just list them but I want them to look more like they do in the video, and when I add the logo image, it doesn't show up. Reply Yanina Ahumada says: April 10, 2019 at 1:19 pm love this! Reply Yanina Ahumada says: April 10, 2019 at 6:30 pm CHRIS WHAT FONT IS YOUR NAME ON THE WEBSITE? ITS REALLY NICE Reply The art Attack says: May 28, 2019 at 9:23 am What if you haven't worked with any noticeable/big brands Reply Sam Hudgins says: August 1, 2019 at 2:42 pm I have a website but nobody goes to it, how can I direct people there? Reply RyoHazuki224 says: August 18, 2019 at 11:35 am Kinda hard to put clients and testimonials if you've never actually had clients. Not paying ones, to be honest. Yeah, trade shoots don't do much for a career! We need some beginner's tips! haha Reply Cory McClure says: November 13, 2019 at 4:00 am Hey so me and my best friend are re-vamping my old photography business. It's called Capturing Life Photography. Got any ideas of what the domain email account name should be since there is two of us? Reply BlazenMikay says: December 3, 2019 at 5:14 pm If your in new york can I be a second camera man for you or can you hire me? Shot in the dark. Thanks Reply bryan v says: December 8, 2019 at 12:15 am All of your videos are ads now. What happened Reply Daniel Gonzalo says: December 9, 2019 at 8:14 pm It all really depends on where you live. I am from Costa Rica and people here simply won't pay for a pro photographer. Big companies hire all their marketing team from other countries and the rest of companies rather take pictures with their phone instead of hiring a pro photographer. No matter how pro you are, $200 is already a HUGE number in people's heads here in Costa Rica, no matter if they have tons of money or not, they just simply don't understand why good quality photos are expensive… Forget about even mentioning $1000 for a photoshoot, they will laugh at your face. Is a sad reality here in Central America at least Reply Siayx _ says: December 12, 2019 at 1:51 am this is content I can live for lol Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
