Creating images for clients requires planning and expertise unrelated to your creative skills. This course will address how to approach and manage the activities necessary to execute projects for clients and run your photography business in an organized and successful way. Each class session will focus on a different topic, including: pricing, contracts, insurance, copyright, locations and permits, content and long-term secure image storage. How to coordinate people, facilities and supplies for photography assignments will be addressed, with the aim of helping you retain clients, attract new ones, increase your income and enhance your reputation.
