Do you earn money from your photography business?  

Earning a living at photography takes lots of dedication and hard work and occasionally a little luck.  When asked by those who want to become full-time photographers, the majority of successful and experienced professionals would advise you to seek another career!  However, if you can't imagine doing anything else except photography there are strategies and techniques that will stop you from making the mistakes that most new professionals make.

You'll still need to work hard and will almost certainly require some amount of good luck to make it on your own but with a few pieces of sage advice and some proven approaches in your toolkit it will be an easier ride. 

Not just for those who want to be full-time professionals but for anyone looking to make money from their photography, this class will teach you how to avoid the mistakes that will quickly kill your business 

It will show you how to find and keep profitable clients while recognizing and avoiding those who will cost you dearly. 

It will teach you how to earn more while working less. ( yes it's true!) 

In this small group class limited to just 6 Ian will teach you the things you need to know to survive and thrive as a photographer. 

This is one of the most popular workshops and always gives new insights and approaches for expanding, growing and maintaining a healthy business. It's well worth the price of admission.  

Just $150 for a full day of valuable instruction.

    I really enjoyed this, small group, workshop. Ian demystified the "business" of Photography by providing real-world knowledge. Having one-on-one discussions with a Professional is priceless. As much as someone may know about business or starting a business, the insights and experiences of a Professional that is doing it, is invaluable. While my goals are mainly the enjoyment of Photography as a hobby, often times business opportunities present themselves. Knowing how to interact, gain clients, price work, and inject your interest and care with the client, are skills that only a Professional can provide. I recommend this workshop for anyone even entertaining the ideal of earning some extra money on the side from Photography, and a "must" for anyone wanting to delve into Photography as a fulltime business.

    Another way to make lots of money in photography is to run tons of meetup photography courses

      I have never been disappointed with any of Ian's workshops... it is worth every penny i have paid... the knowledge and experience that i have gained the last couple of years cannot have a price tag put on it.. i have taken this class and it is amazing what it takes to run a photography business, a real eye opener.
