Video: want to start making money from photography? Then don't do these five things
Coming to us from the ever-likable Peter McKinnon, here's an interesting video that looks at some of the things he wishes he’d known sooner when it comes to making money from photography, along with some valuable tips if you're hoping to break through anytime soon.
The content includes ensuring you have a contract to protect yourself and client expectations, not charging enough (although McKinnon is an advocate for working for free when you're getting started), having checklists to ensure you don't forget something and also help meet client expectations, the value of talking or meeting in person if you can and the big one, getting out there and promoting your work and what you do.
Let us know if there's any other tips you can think of in the comments. You can see more of McKinnon's videos on YouTube.
