Most photographers get into business because they fall head over heels in love photography and want to pursue their passion. But business can be hard!
Dane Sanders writes in Fast Track Photographer that 60% of photography businesses will fail in the first year. 60%! Only 15% of photographers make it to year three and beyond.
And I totally get it. It can be completely overwhelming! From designing a website, breaking through the noise on social media, making nice with google, figuring how to get inquiries, figuring out how to get those inquiries to turn into clients, then figuring out how to make those clients happy. Oh, and putting together pricing that attracts the right clients but also allows you to pay yourself. And where to even begin with sales?
A lot of photographers try to piece together advice from other photographers on social media - or they'll copy what an industry guru does.
But I've seen too many times that what works for one photographer doesn't always work for all of them. Business isn't one-size-fits-all!
But that doesn't mean you won't succeed.
With 14 years experience in sales and marketing, then 12 years as a full-time photographer - including owning a popular boutique studio for six - I've got the hard-won expertise to take you from overwhelmed and stuck to fully booked and profitable. Some of the topics we can cover include:
