Ready yourself for a rewarding photography career. Set yourself apart from fierce compettion - and I really do mean FIERCE.
The photography industry is one of the most challenging, difficult and competitive for start up businesses. The statistics prove it. Today, only 15% of photographers make it to the third year in business. 15% means that 85% of photographers give up their business within two years. The number is staggering.
So, you want to be a photographer and enter the business? I want you to succeed and be a part of the 15% who build a business that lasts. You must know now and understand completely, this is a business.
There are countless photographers today and the field continues to grow by leaps and bounds. In fact, almost everyone who owns a camera calls themselves a photographer. Don't let this discourage you or put you off.
You might feel as if you're in the wilderness - the middle of nowhere - without a clear path to success. This can be both scary and frustrating. You have the camera. You have the skills to create remarkable photographs. But now what?
Learn what it takes to not only be a professional but also market yourself and photography effectively. Challenges await you at every corner.
