Photography business education

Business of Photography

Some of the most talented photographers are terrible business people and unfortunately go out of business all too quickly. Today isn’t like the old days where a photographer had a full-time studio manager and staff to delegate work to. The market has dictated that many, if not most, photographers are solopreneurs with a network of contract resources available to them.

We provide training, coaching, and mentoring on the business of photography to photographers and photography businesses of all levels. Adam’s unique experience as a management consultant with a business degree has made his business thrive as well as helped new photographers start their businesses and struggling photographers take back control of their businesses.

Some of the topics we teach are:

  • Business structure and formation
  • Business finances
  • Contracts for clients and assistants
  • Branding and marketing concepts
  • Sales and pricing techniques
  • Business workflow
