You think you want to start your home based photography business? Think again! > 12 Reasons You Shouldn’t Start Your Own Photography Business
I am far from charging for my shots until I consider them good enough, but hey this is always a good advice in the jungle of photography.
“Hey there, lovely! Welcome to the first chapter of Easy as Pie, the common sense pricing guide for modern portrait photographers. I’m Alicia. This is my book. And this…is your life:
It’s happened. You were smack-dab in the middle of a heap of Photoshop work, you’d just answered a few client calls, the phone was still ringing, the e-mails were piling up, and the latest barrage of prints and canvases and photo books and goodies had just arrived from the lab, the UPS guy commented on your morning breath, you realized you hadn’t moved from the computer in the last nine hours and fourteen minutes…and you thought, ‘I’M NOT GETTING PAID ENOUGH FOR THIS.’
Being overwhelmed and crazy-busy often means your products and services are underpriced. But how do you raise pricing, and when? And by how much? And…and…and…
Relax. Pricing, we can handle. For morning breath, you’re on your own.
We’ll discover the perfect pricing fit for YOUR business, as there is no one-size-fits-all strategy that will achieve spectacular results. Some photographers prefer the slow-and-steady approach, while others rocket their prices to what-seems-like-the-moon and experience success. There’s a right way for you, and we’ll find it – together.
Stick with me, and your photography business will double its current level of awesome in no time. Easy” > link
