A good business guide

I looked at the internet for simple tips and tricks that I can apply on my camera. I saw this book while looking for guides in photography. I learned that this kind of business is a little expensive based on this book but it is a good investment someday. This book taught what to do and what I need in this kind of business. The step-by-step are not clear to me and I think it needed examples on every step. This book will help me with that! Looking forward to the future now.

Must Have.

The information contained in this book is just as easy to digest and implement. The author takes all the mystery and fear out of taking the first step and every step after that to becoming your own boss in your own photography business. It's written to fit anyone's personal situation and filled with so many unique ideas that if you just follow what it says, there's no reason why you can't be out finding a client base immediately.

Good book

The whole concept of 'loading out' before you attempt any business, and knowing what you are selling to make you an authority in your product even works online. Personally, I think it can become easier, because you can sell in your boxers instead of a tie. This is very helpful to get an idea of what the startup costs will likely be. It then covers actual business components, such as getting an LLC, advertising, competitive research, and finances. It was quite refreshing to know that you can start small and fairly inexpensive-you don't even need a website at first, just a blog and a Facebook page!
