Overview

 

 

Learn from a local photographer, who has two photography businesses in Denver, the steps involved when starting your own photography business.

 

Take this course if you have developed your skills in photography and have considered starting a photo business and charging for your work. You may already be photographing for friends, family or businesses who are thrilled with your images, and you’d like your business to be official.

 

What You’ll Learn

  • What to consider and assemble before starting any business

  • Five essentials for starting a photography business

  • What you’ll expect to find on a photography business checklist

  • Where to find free resources that can help you maneuver your checklist

  • The answers to your burning questions

 

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
