How to start a Business In Photography

11.10.11 Welcome, The reason you are reading this free informative site is because you are an entrepreneur. You strive and are willing to take risks. You want to take better pictures,You are the future of photography!  You can change the way pictures are viewed and you can alter the styles and formats that once were the norm. I have experienced the change over and over for more than 25 years and now you can take this exciting passion into a whole new world in any direction you choose. Introduction   Since the film days I’ve been teaching people how to run a photography business, how to make money with photographs, where the best digital SLR guide is,  currently how to choose a digital camera, and how you can be world’s best in photography.  I have been photographing professionally for more than 29 years, and how to run a  photography business is my passion. I did not formally go to college for photography, but I did take a few technical portrait courses at Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, NY, mostly I learned through trial and error.  That was extremely difficult since there was no way to determine if you were successful with your camera adjustments, let alone your subjects, until the film was developed.  My college education consisted of a mixture of two degrees from three colleges, a combination of about 146 (not including the RIT classes) credits, none of which got me a completed four year degree,other than an associates, but I do have a great college education, consisting of business, statistics, biology, psychology, and fashion design/art illustration. I wanted to complete a degree, but I was making money shooting photos, working out of my home, making my own hours, and having alot of fun! One of my first part time classes was at the University of Colorado, Boulder Co., where I took a photography class, making money with a camera.  The professor told me I had a fantastic eye for photography.  That year I won first prize out of 400 contestants for the “lady walking her dog in San Francisco” (1973).  After that success I had hundreds of ideas for taking photos.  Later in 1974 I began teaching myself how to set up a photo studio. Remember to look for your personal style, use it, and alter it to fit the client too. It is never just all about you, you now have clients that are your bosses and they have a different vision.  The two visions must be combined. You are so blessed since digital came into our world. When I shot $100,000.00 weddings (I personally shot about 1500 weddings/events), corporate events and crucial business ventures that had only one chance, I had to “spiritually” shoot with film.  Do...
