How To Start a Photography Business

Welcome back, December 28, 2011 The new year 2012 is approaching and millions of people are out of work. I believe that the entire system is changing. Because so many people are looking for so few job openings the younger generation, like yourself are finding a different system of making an earning. The Internet is providing that new system. I will be writing about putting your web site together and linking you to your community. I want you to remember that everything I am coaching you on would cost much more money if you went through the college system. Yes, I agree that college education is beneficial, but remember I myself was making more money shooting, and college was costing me money in required classes I never needed. Even putting this site together I learned from a coach who directed me to the exact information I needed, quickly!   So, I am excited that you too can learn quickly and make the money you need to pay those bills. How to start a business in photography is actually fun. Camera & Photo   Click here Anything and Everything from Amazon Yes, we want more and we all deserve to live lavishly, so don’t think for one moment that this is hard…and you can’t or don’t want to do this. If you have a liking for photography, can move quickly, be flexible, this is right for you. You can make six figure and more, depending on what you shoot. BASIC 101 If you have a camera, at this point any camera and you are ready to make money in photography, lets start with the camera and flash. Buy Online, Pickup in Your Local Best Buy® Store.  If you want to pick up immediately you can or there is an option for delivery. I hope you have clicked on the link and have purchased equipment, or you are using an existing camera.  If you are short of cash, there is a credit card link here, (coming soon____). I have reviewed several credit card companies and some that will have travel points so you can travel and take photographs to sell. The number one item you will definitely need is a flash that goes the distance. So get your camera body and look for a PC outlet  (remember that was one of the most important request I mentioned you needed when purchasing a camera body) for your new flash attachment. The hot shoe will also hold a flash attachment,but that will only be powered by batteries. Please buy new, used equipment has the power to fail, you can not take that chance.  I have never sold anything good as...

How To Run A Photography Business

How do I Run a Photography Business? Let’s get right to the point Get everything in legal proper order. 1). County clerks office; pay under $50. for a “doing business as”; DBA form and fill out the name you want for your business. 2). Pay approximately $500. each year for 2 million dollars worth of liability insurance. If you are shooting for profit on a state road, local soccer field, construction site, or client’s home,  anywhere.YOU NEED THIS, and some companies will not hire you without it. This protects YOU. 3). Usually, I shoot everything clients asked me to shoot. From construction to babies. Take everything, including food photos. For that you’ll need to have your cameras set up differently. Table top shooting.  I’ll go through that guide in a following page. Take everything, but do not take one thing that is obscene, defamatory, or any illegal activity. 4). Aways collect the state tax. Save it in a seperate account. Go on line to your States tax web site. Like New York State.com/sales tax forms.  This is not hard. simply fill out the quartly forms and send a check. 5).  Display StateTax ID No./ Form as stated by the state. Consult an Accountant and Insurance agent. (Per requests I’ll have links for them too, coming up). 6). The joy is that you can build your studio at a later date, cutting start up cost.  I had my most success on different locations. 7).  How to chose a digital camera and making money with photographs is critical at this point. If you pick your own camera you may have huge problems later. I don’t want to tell you what to do, but really look at the Canon’s and Nikon’s I mentioned in post; How to make money as a Photographer . When you realize what you need that digital SLR camera body for, you may be disappointed later. Think about what you are focusing on, for how to make money as a photographer, that way you will have the interchangeable equipment set up that will work for your area of expertise. Send me a comment. The lens I’d like  to carry is the Canon 28-135mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS.  That is 28mm for large group shots, wider angle.  That way you can shoot a group and turn and grab, to the  135mm telephoto, a studio portrait style shot, and turn to the 80mm, ideal location  bust portrait /family small group lens. So there you have the best crystal clear low light settings, with three lengths in one lens. We want the best digital pictures. When you buy a set up…you will need another compete set up, if you are hired to complete the job you must do so even if you are having camera failure.  I...

How to Choose a Digital Camera

Welcome back, I have been reviewing several other consumer cameras this week. The new Nikon 1J1 has 10 megapixels, the availability of interchangeable lens. The good news is that you can put this in your pocket and get better results for traveling or being discrete, as long as you purchase a telephoto lens The new Sony NEX-5N lists for $698. has 16 megapixels, interchangeable lens, and touchscreen. The lens is the 18-55mm usual lens that comes free with a consumer camera body.  18mm is great for taking large family groups inside a country club or family living room.  The portrait shots you will need to move/get up and get close to the subject.  The vacation scenes will be far away.  Therefore you will be purchasing another telephoto lens. Canon Powershot SX 150 has 14 megapixels and lists for $249.00 has HD video, and optical image stabilization for crisp images. Non interchangeable lens. Semi Professional Cameras Canon T2i 18 megipixels, body only,  lists for $579.99 The new Sony NEX-5N lists for $698. has 16 megapixels, interchangeable lens, and touchscreen. The lens is the 18-55mm, usual lens that comes free with a consumer camera body. 18mm is great for taking large family groups outdoors. The portrait shots you will need to move/get up and get close to the subject. The vacation scenes will be far away. Therefore you will be purchasing another telephoto lens.  The flash attached may not provide enough artificial light/distance for inside groups. Be sure to check the compatibility of your camera body and the flash you want to attach with it. They do NOT always interchange.
