I started my photography business by accident. Well, kind of. I knew I wanted to learn, and my pursuit of experience snowballed into a full-time career. I went from shooting in auto to being full time in SIX MONTHS. Sounds great? Well, there was one HUGE problem. I had no foundation.
I was so overwhelmed by everything I didn't know. I watched youtube videos and DMed a million photographers because I didn't want to sound desperate enough to ask the same person allllll the questions I had. I felt like such a fraud. I didn't know how to break into new markets, how to book my ideal client, how much to charge AND not to mention I was still not even confident I was using my camera right! Running a business is hard. Doing it alone feels almost impossible. Especially in markets that feel like there is always someone offering the "same thing" for less money.
Here's the scoop. If you feel stuck, discouraged, confused, or just plain burnt out. I need you to know, there is room for you at the table.
