As an international photography business coach I see many photographers around the world starting a portrait photography business, and they are choosing to work from home. This trend is set to continue into the future, as more and more photographers take control of their passion for photography to create a profitable small business.
Photographers are willing to juggle their business and family life for a more simplified lifestyle that can bring rich rewards.
In making your decision to work from home, you have to realise that your personal or home life could intrude on your work, and vice versa.
The fact is that operating a photography business from home does need some know-how and discipline is needed to push you to focus on your work.
The good news is that working from home can provide you with a fulfilling career while being constantly around the family.
There are many other benefits, of course, and the best one is that if carefully planned and executed, your business can give you a high income.
Sure it’s a competitive market.
Of course, we’re dealing with budget brides and price shoppers.
And yes it will require hard work and solid commitment.
I have learnt as a photography business coach so much over my many years of running a photography studio, that I was motivated to write a book. the book is called “Success Secrets of a Professional Photographer.” In the book, I reveal my strategies and secrets on how I sustained my own successful photography business for such a long period of time.
If you are a passionate photographer, simply having creative talent may not be enough for you to build the photography business of your dreams.
Photography can be a tough and competitive business, and like any business requires a good marketing plan, expertise in handling customers and having good sales skills.
Having owned a photography studio specialising in weddings and portraits, for over 40 years, and now as an International Photography Business Coach, I feel the challenge for today’s photographers in trying to earn a good income from their photography is to learn the business principles that are needed to succeed.
Despite all the doom and gloom that lies around the photography industry at present, I believe that there has never been a better time than now, to build a Successful Portrait Business.
There are great financial and satisfying career rewards for those who persist, get the right advice, and follow their dreams.
Your Success Is My Success.
