The Business of Photography
Day retreat £225
Wednesday 9th October 2019
We know it’s hard to strike that balance between creating beautiful photos and the business side of it. We want to share what we’ve learnt over these past ten years of running our family portrait business.
What will I learn?
During the day retreat, we’ll take you through:
Working with your ideal clients
Projects & collaborations as you’re establishing your business or to inject new life into your existing business
Pricing - and getting this right from the start
Products - what’s right for you and your brand. We’ll discuss digital file packages and why we also place emphasis on tangible products
Look at what your brand believes in, and get to your WHY, and how potential clients connect with this
Social Media - building a core of faithful followers who stick with you
How not to water down your work, you can’t please everyone (and how to celebrate this!)
Does this sound like it might be for you? We’d love to help you get that balance right between business and creating your art.
Tell me more about the day
Arrival is from 9.30am for tea and pastries ready for a 10am start. We hold our retreats in a beautiful stone barn nestled on the edge of woodland and moor on the hillside above Hebden Bridge. If it's a bit nippy outside, the log burning stove will be glowing when you come in. Warm yourself by the fire, whilst we have a cup of tea and chat about what the day will bring.
We want to help you lay the foundations to a successful, and let’s say it, PROFITABLE portrait photography business! On the day, we’ll take you through how to work with your ideal clients, finding clarity in where you are right now and where you’d like to be, and how to get there. A warming lunch will then be provided to get you all set for the afternoon. Over lunch we can answer any questions you have.
After lunch we’ll take you through the 3 Ps - Portfolio, Pricing & Products. Before we finish, at around 5.00pm, there will be another cup of tea or a glass of something for those who don't have to rush off. If anyone is staying close by in the evening, then we're happy to provide recommendations on good eateries and drinkeries - there are plenty of little gems in Hebden Bridge.
If you have any questions or would like any other information please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 07725 731422. We’d love to hear from you and hope to see you soon!
