Starting your own Digital Camera Photography Business

The first thing to think about when starting
a photography business is how to do it
in a legitimate way.

You want a business that will last a lifetime
so you want to start it out right.
So don’t fall for the “get rich quick”
internet schemes or books that claim

They will spill the insider secrets
of other successful photography business.
There are no insider secrets
to this business other than what
you need to know to run any business.
To succeed you have to…

Pay your dues
 Get your education.
 Learn from the pros.
 Know your stuff.
 Network
 Value your customers.

You can accomplish the first five of these objectives
by going to school and working part or full time
in somebody else’s photography shop.

You may despair at the idea of more school.

But your photography business will be about
more than just cameras, photo shoots and dark rooms.
You have accounting principles to comprehend and execute,
taxes to be paid, a facility to rent,
employees to pay, insurance to worry about,
contracts to sign and all of that other “stuff”
that goes with running a business.

So start early and get some basic business classes
under your belt such as accounting and economics.
It will benefit you dozens of ways
as you march toward success.

Many trades have an apprentice system where
you tutor under a master of the craft.

But it might be a good thing for you to
take this matter into your own hands.
Plan to work for a photography shop
long enough to learn the ins and outs
of running a small business and of running
a photography business.

This gives you the chance to build your knowledge and
exposure to equipment, learn technique
and how to work with your subjects.

In fact, it might be a good idea to deliberately
apprentice at a number of different types of
photography studios before launching out on your own.

So you can learn the ins and outs of wedding photography,
baby photography, fashion photography and others
from specialists all before you spend a dime
of your own money to start your own enterprise.

In this way, you build skills, you build knowledge,
you build experience and you can watch and
take notes of the great things others do
and the mistakes to avoid.
