LEARN HOW TO START & RUN A FILM OR PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS

IDEATION TO LAUNCH WORKSHOP

Starting your own film or photography business is a great way to add a second income or a main income if you work hard. While the both markets are competitive, many film and photography business owners have been able to find their niche and build a sustainable career. Like most creative endeavors, you need to balance your passion for photography and/or film with real business skills to be successful.

To build and grow your business, you need both raw talent and a knack for marketing. One film director we interviewed on Rich Fridays Podcast said an ability “to market yourself” was one of the most important factors in success. You should continually be working to improve your craft and evolve your product and work consistently on your own branding, online marketing and people skills. Without the two, the results will likely end up being an expensive hobby rather than a viable full-time business.
