Chances are you got here because you’ve got questions about running your photography business. So do I. I haven’t been in the business long as of this writing. October 23rd 2011 is the day I decided start moonlighting as a photographer. Eight months and thirteen clients later I have more questions than I began with. But I also have more answers too.
This is sketch pad of sorts, where I will collect my questions about photography business practices, etiquette, technique and so forth. My plan is to eventually tackle each one. I hope that other photographers facing similar questions might find some insights here. Moreover, I welcome anyone with an option on these issues to post it in the comments below.
-Photography Packages: How much time, how much money, how many deliverables?
-The First Impression: How can ensure the best initial viewing experience for clients?
-No Prints, No JPGs: Should I only offer digital files with albums?
-Photo “Teasers” on Facebook: More harm than good?
-Photo Shoot Dress Code: Comfort versus style
-Photoshopping the Client: Where do you draw the line?
-Posing “Natural Pictures” – Should it be done?
-Inspiration or Imitation – Does looking at others’ work help or hinder your creativity?
