A Great Addition to Commercial Photography Courses

by | Commercial Photography 101

While there are many commercial photography courses, schools and programs available to the aspiring photographer who is hoping for a commercial photography job once they get out of school or complete their program, nearly all of the courses are woefully inadequate when it comes to the business aspects of commercial photography.

The focus of these programs is on commercial photography shooting and posing, plus lighting and creative techniques, with little more than a day (in-person course) or a few minutes (video course) spent learning about the critical business aspects of being a professional commercial photographer.

The business of commercial photography is the most important part of being a commercial photographer, because that knowledge is what enables a photographer to run a business and make a salary, not just shoot nice photos.

Most photographers can make nice photos, but few can successfully run a commercial photography business.

And there are very few salaried commercial photography jobs available, so 99% of new commercial photographers end up freelancing once they complete their photography course.

Countless new commercial photographers graduate from expensive programs or finish low-priced video tutorials without knowing much at all about things like how to price, market, negotiate, organize, produce a shoot and run their business so they can work with clients and make money.

And so much more.
