Publisher's Summary

This book will guide you in starting your own photography business; it's truly an advantage if you are a photographer by profession, but if not, it doesn't mean that you could not open your own business. I can help you get the ball rolling.

Despite the fact that people now own smartphones with great cameras, nothing can beat the skill of professional photographers - they just know the nuts and bolts of taking photos, editing, and printing. They know about the correct angles, the right amount of light, and even the appropriate gestures and expressions. These are just some of the reasons why I'd personally hire a photographer for special events rather than let all the guests or participants take their own photos. Photography services are just more organized and more effective, and they give better-looking images that you can proudly post online. Collectively, this is the reason why photography businesses are in demand.

I know that starting a photography business - any business, in fact - is not a walk in the park. It's also not roses and rainbows; there will be difficulties along the way, and maybe at one point you might even think of quitting. Lower your chances of being discouraged by being equipped - one way to do that is to listen to, savor, and finish this book.

Here are a few things you will learn from this book:

  • The four main markets you should choose from when starting a photography business
  • A list of the investments you should make, including tips and tricks; this includes cameras, lighting, backdrops, etc.
  • How do you legalize your business? What about licenses? Permits? Taxes? What is LLC?
  • A step-by-step guide on how you can promote your business
  • Should you declare copyright on your photos?
  • And much more...

could be helpful as a todo list or a refresher

very basic and unrealistic

While the author gives a decent outline about business, his lack of in-depth references, realistic expenses and expectations could be dangerous. Better to spend some time on photography websites like DPreview.com or others.

Atrocious

I own a photo & video company. We’re the best at what we do. - I know this space. - This book contains no actual instructions or information. It’s just a list of generic items and processes we must use. But it’s also badly written, and riddled with grammatical errors… I mean, a LOT. F-

Eyes wide open like ISO 100

Editing pics while listening to this book has taught me a lot more of what I thought I already knew. Also it has given me more to think about and ideas. I am truly grateful for your time and effort and look forward to more of your books in the future. I am an aspiring and sometimes uninspired mostly portrait photographer that loves learning new things. In the future I'd love to see a book going deeper and giving tips on how to achieve quality photos in various genres. My motivation is back thanks to you 👍🏿.

Not much useful info

I'm certainly not well-versed in the field of business, but there wasn't really much in this that I didn't already know

Not what I expected.

This book will help you if you are considering to be a shop-front photographer, but there is no technical information about lenses or lights. so if you’re excepting any knowledge of that kind here you won’t find, neither about how can you sell your photos online. And a relevant comparison between options available.
