Business of Photography

Simple fact: creative artistic freelance photographers need business skill know-how just as much as Internet startup companies and small enterprises. There are many aspects of the business of photography that should be considered before starting up your own wedding photography or portrait photography business. Whether it's model releases, wedding photography contracts, licensing your images for magazine use, bidding on a commercial photoshoot and hiring your team, diving into stock photography and building a side business out of stock photos. As with any business, it's crucial to know your rights and have the business side of things taken care of, to allow yourself to focus more on the creative aspects of photography. We produced a few series on photo.net that will answer some questions for you: Tony Luna's series on the Lifecycle of a Freelance Photography Job and the panel of wedding photographers' Business of Wedding Photography.
