Simple and helpful advice!

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.

Sounds reasonable enough

The book gave a higher chance of opportunity in real estate photography and that's something i'm looking forward to. it's clear that the author is a pro at it and what's better than to rely on his ideas. I never know that this kind of career is in demand. This book explained,narrated well and very clear. Topics discussed were very helpful especially for beginners. I can tell that this is a good guide for making money!

5 stars!

Have been wanting to start my own photography business for sometime, and after reading this book, I have finally found a way to get my business started and off the ground. The book is very informative, with life lessons on the do's and don’ts, and is very practical. Reality, there is no sure way of success in starting ones own business, but, this book gives you the tools and knowledge in plain understanding on how one should approach photography as a business. Highly recommend. Have started putting some of the practices in place that are suggested and, they have been favorable. With this book in hand, and your own determination, I believe you can succeed in your endeavor.
