If photography is your passion, you may decide to turn it into a career. In order to make it as a photographer, you need to have quite a unique skill set – technical knowledge, creativity, a passion for working with people… here are some of the things you should think about ahead of going into business:
- Qualifications. People might be more likely to use you if you have a certification or qualification. It is certainly something you can use in your advertising and marketing campaigns. Choose a course that suits you and your current skill level.
- Cost. Find out what costs are involved in setting up a small business and if there is any help available to you.
- Clients. Make sure you have a good photography portfolio and can market your services. This will help you to find clients. Think about giving away vouchers for a photo shoot to get your name known.
