You would have heard a million times ‘work ON your business and not IN your business’. But no one actually shows you how to do this! Well, here is your chance to learn. This is where most photographers make the fatal mistake of trying to do everything to save a few £££. You will learn how to set up your own team whether you wish to employ them part or full-time or hire them on a job-by-job basis. This will free you up to concentrate on your business to take it foward. If you currently run your photography business on a part-time basis, then you have even less time to edit & retouch images, update your website, write blog posts, etc. After attending this workshop, your outlook towards your business will change. No matter how small your business is, you will be able to afford a team of some very talented professionals who will add value to your business.
There is a science as to how to sell ‘big’ it certainly is not rocket science! All you need to do is educate your clients to start thinking ‘Wall Art’ from the time they contact you. They need to be put through a process which will make them desire for a beatiful ‘Wall Art’ for their home. You will see a variety of printed materials which helps in the decision making of the clients to buy big. When they come to you for their portrait session, you & they know exactly what they want.
