What You’ll Learn

  • What to consider and assemble before starting any business

More details

There is so much to know and learn when starting your own business; it can be daunting. This class is designed to get you on your way, break down the complexities into digestible nuggets and get you feeling ready and excited to tackle your new adventure.


You’ll be provided with a photography business checklist. We won’t have time to go into detail about everything, so if you and your peers would rather talk about marketing over pricing, or contracts over outsourcing, we can do that. This course is designed to flow with the topics you feel are most important. I want to provide you with great information and then answer your most urgent questions.


We will be going over:

  • Choosing a Niche

  • Researching Photographers in Your Niche

  • Importance of a Business & Marketing Plan

  • Tools to Help Your Workflow

  • Pricing for Sustainability

  • Networking, Advertising & Marketing

  • Photo Education Resources to help you continue to improve your craft
