Learn the essential lessons you need to know to start, run and grow a successful photography business.
Does the freedom of running your own business and being your own boss get you pumped up?
I don't blame you. Ten years ago, when I decided to become a photographer, I had an absolute bucketload of passion and enthusiasm for the task. I decided that I was going to make it happen, no matter what.
I didn't really know what was in store for me. I had no idea how many challenges I'd have to overcome, or how much I'd have to learn.
I also didn't fully appreciate just what a life as a professional photographer would give me. Sure I knew I wanted to take lots of photos, and that happened. But I didn't realize just how much it would change my life – how much I could feel energized and fulfilled by my work. Work always sounded like a dry, dull thing. But when you find a career that you're so insanely stoked about? Life opens up.
So that's why today we're really proud to be sharing our newest tutorial with you. It's designed to help you find your way towards a professional photography business of your own, in the most fun and concentrated way.
Before we dig into the details, I want to start by giving you the first video from the tutorial, absolutely free. I hope it can give you an idea of just what being a professional photographer means, and why we are so passionate about helping other photographers create a business for themselves.
