Summary

Are you an amateur photographer or someone who wishes to turn a hobby into a professional career? Perhaps, you have studied and earned a degree in photography, but you have yet to find a job that allows you to make a full time income? If this sounds like you, then you have found the right book to help you generate income from your photography skills.

What galleries and professional photographers want is to see an established portfolio and online presence. They want to know you are capable of gaining attention from your target audience.

Things have also changed in the industry, where anyone can start to publish their work online and make a little income from it. Your goal to make a full time income is admirable and possible, even if there is someone with better artistic skills.

Selling any product is about marketing. If you truly want to generate income, then you need a marketing tactic that will get you noticed, have a good call to action, and ensure that you can make the sale final.

Think of your photography business as needing to make sales, which means you need people, and people want truth in advertising, with an interesting gimmick that gets their attention. It doesn't matter if the product or service is brand name, when you have a decent product or service to sell.

In this book, you are going to learn about the top ways you can make money full time with your photography skills. You will also learn the following:

  • The four main markets you should choose from in starting a photography business
  • A list of the investments you should make, including tips and tricks; this includes camera, lighting, backdrops, etc.
  • How do you legalize your business? What about licenses? Permits? Taxes? What is LLC?
  • A step-by-step guide on how you can promote your business
  • Should you declare copyright on your photos?
  • Best printers according to reviewers
  • What you need to include when creating a contract

A good business.

I looked at the internet for simple tips and tricks that I can apply on my camera. I saw this book while looking for guides in photography. I learned that this kind of business is a little expensive based on this book but it is a good investment someday. This book taught what to do and what I need in this kind of business. The step-by-step are not clear to me and I think it needed examples on every step.

Nice manuscripts...

I’ve been in this photography group in Facebook, about 3 months now. I’ve seen captivating photos every now and then and it has stirred something in me. And though I’m not in the stage where I want to be in a photography biz, I’m slowly getting there with the help of this concise audio guide.

Great for learning terms & camera info.

With recent sales on business based books, I have listened to a number of business books over the last few weeks and see a trend in all of them. They all have the approach of "Look around yourself and assess if you have a cell phone, internet, etc and utilize those in your business".

What this book does well is teach you photography terms, camera settings, etc. The best parts of the book were where it discussed cameras and how to use them, including camera settings, etc.

Where the book seems weak: I hate to knock a narrator, but the narrator seemed very stressed in trying to present the material. It was not a long book, and with the good material, was worth the buy, but the narrator seemed to stress the enunciation and pronunciation of every word and term. Imagine if someone was giving you great information in the presence of a running jet engine. They would enunciate and pronounce each word with a great amount of emphasis to make sure you heard it. That is how this book came across, minus the jet engine.

All in all, a good buy if on sale for photography fans.
