BPP 176: How YOU Grew As A Photographer This Year!

Podcast cover
Read more

Throughout all of 2019 I ended every episode with a reminder to focus on yourself. A Reminder that we are all artists and in a world of youtube videos telling what camera gear to buy, blogs showing exactly where our lights should be places, and facebook posts telling us why we are doing it all wrong, that sometimes we need to step back and do what WE want to do. Explore what we want to explore. Today I chat with 3 members of the Beginner Photography Podcast Facebook group who I personally saw substantial growth in their work in 2020. I want to know what they did and how they focused on themselves to grow their skills. Special shoutout to Kimberly, Saul, and Jim for sharing with you all.

BPP 172: Different Photography Business Models and How To Pick The Right One For You

Podcast cover
Read more

A business model is a conceptual structure that supports the viability of a product or company and explains how the company operates, makes money, and how it intends to achieve its goals.

Choosing the right business model is more important than you could know for creating a photography business that can support you and your family financially and live a life with less stress and overwhelm.

The two business models that are at polar opposites of each other are

Shoot and Burn

Boutique

Everything else falls in between these two.

Shoot and burn photography is focused more on high volume at lower prices. As a shoot and burn photographer, you are simply selling your time.

Boutique photography is client focused shooting less volume but at higher prices. As a boutique photographer, you are selling your art and vision.

In this episode, I go more in-depth on the two different business models and share how you can eliminate all competition.
