The Business of Photography: Getting it right from the “get go”
Are you a fantastic photographer who’s looking to turn a hobby into a profession that pays the bills? Maybe you’re already running a successful photography business, but looking for the right insights to kick it up a notch.
Either way, my one-day Business of Photography workshop is for you!
I’m Andrew Miller and I’ve been a full-time, pays the mortgage wedding photographer for 11 years. I’m also a qualified professional adult trainer who’s got a masters level qualification in coaching & mentoring.
During (and since) my career in the British Army – which is, incidentally, where I qualified as a photographer – I’ve trained people all over the world, from the US to Southeast Asia and beyond over a 30-year period.
The fact I am also qualified to use a wide variety of psychometric assessments means I can not only help you develop as an individual but also, just as importantly, improve your business
But what does that all really mean?
In a nutshell, I’ve been there, done that and got the T-shirt. I’ve made the mistakes and learnt from them accordingly. And if I can prevent you from making just one of those mistakes, this workshop will have been worth it personally and financially.
Plus, I’m in a pretty unique position as a professional trainer to effectively and efficiently impart my knowledge to you.
The bottom line is that even if you’re the best photographer in the world, it’s all for nothing if you don’t create the foundations that your business needs to grow and thrive.
That’s right! Forget the fancy lighting, the fancy editing and the fancy posing, if you can’t run a business you’re going to starve.
This workshop has been designed with the sole aim of setting you on the right path to creating the successful wedding photography business you’ve perhaps always dreamed of.
So what can you expect on the day?
The first two-thirds of the day are spent covering all of the business stuff such as the cost of doing business, marketing, strategy, equipment, communications techniques, contracts and, of course, some photography!
The final third of the day will see us thinking about and actually doing photography.
Focussing on the use of off-camera flash and other creative indoor flash techniques. Working with real brides and couples (I don’t use models, I use real people from my previous shoots). We’ll also look at ways to make your photography stand out or as I like to call it, finding your “style”.
Remember, at the end of the day, being different is ultimately what differentiates you in a crowded market.
Still not quite sure what to expect?
