At the start of our photography careers, making money and doing what we love is usually the primary focus.
Commercial photography has been a long-standing pillar in the industry—encompassing everything from a simple headshot to huge marketing campaigns.
Then you daydream of your perfect client, who do you envision? Most people will jump to say “someone who has a lot of money to spend on my photography!”
For sixteen and a half years I was a TACP, which falls under the Air Force Special Warfare Community.
When I started my photography career, a lot of people smiled and nodded and said, “Wow. What a great side hustle.”
It’s been quite a while since I have written an article for Shutter Magazine. A little over a year in fact. During this time, so much has changed in the wedding photography industry that has helped me to gain a new perspective on the business and fine-tune many different aspects to build a more sustainable career, and more importantly, teach others how to do the same.
