As photographers we think that creating a business is simple: take great photographs and the general public will be beating your door down (or these days filling your inbox with emails) trying to hire you. Unfortunately, business and life are not that simple. You have to find your clientele. You need to create a brand that makes you stand out and be desired. You need to know how to market and sell to provide for a great living. This program is about the need to find people that can afford your work, the need to get the right return for the time you invest with your clients, and the ways for your people to so desire your product so that money is secondary in their minds. Find out how Luxury is a Necessity.
