We may all be photographers now, but most of us come from very different backgrounds before getting ourselves into this crazy business. As I have discussed in detail in many of my other business or photography pricing tutorials, being a photographer today is no easy task. Why? Because everyone is doing it. It's simple as that. As competition increases for any industry, prices decrease. That makes our jobs, as photographers, much harder these days. Much harder to continue to be able to do what we love to do and if we aren't making profits, then all we have is a pricey "hobby", not a "business". I've learned a lot about running a photography business over the last 5 years, but I have had to pound my way through it learning by trial and error. That isn't a bad thing...but one day while driving I thought of a really awesome idea for a tutorial that would potentially help thousands of other photographers - "What did I wish I knew, before starting my photography business?" I have an answer, but I also have something waaaaaaay better for you. I asked this thought provoking question to a handful of my most talented and successful peers to get their advice to share with you too! ...and here we go.
