Best Business Practices for Photographers
How do you operate a successful freelance photography business, even if you're a staffer? How do you determine your rates, handle supposedly "no-change" contracts, late-paying clients, and debates over rate increases. Simply put —the business of photography is just plain time-consuming and oftentimes daunting. How can you negotiate better? How do the needs of editorial and commercial clients diverge and intersect? During this presentation, John will address these topics and more as you learn to handle your business better and more efficiently. We’ll discuss considerations when developing rates and resources, designing a business model that accounts for everything from taxes to business expenses, plus several techniques for negotiating with clients.
