So You Want To Work With Me #1: Introduce Yourself!

Maybe you discovered me via my website, or my Flickr feed. Maybe you ran across my name in a SL group, or just stumbled across my SL profile. What’s important is that you — a photographer or producer — found me, and now you’re interested in using me as talent in your art.

Let me say at the outset that I’m incredibly flattered by your interest, and I do not take it for granted. Before you reach out to me, though, I want to give you a few tips, in the form of this series of short posts, to help ensure that our relationship not only gets off on the right foot, but remains positive and constructive through the completion of your project (and, hopefully, beyond). I want to work with you and help you be successful, and I make these suggestions in that spirit.

I’ve long since given up on limiting my friends list to people I’m actually friends with. These days my friends list mostly serves as a list of folks I’ve bumped into over time, and who seemed interesting enough to be worth keeping track of. Because of this it's important that you avoid assuming I remember who you are from a conversation or two that took place weeks or months ago. Instead, when you’re reaching out to me, say something like, “Hi, Arienne! I don’t know if you recall, but we met briefly at (place), and I’d like to talk to you about (subject).”

If we haven’t met before, an introduction like this is even more critical, because I tend to ignore content-free “hi” and “how are you” IMs from randos. You don’t need to set your hair on fire to get my attention; just be polite and friendly as you tell me who you are, how you found me, and what you want.
