How is this course different to The Fashion Series?

The Fashion Series covered the creative side of the industry – giving you an insight into fundamentals on lighting, posing and styling as well as sharing my creative process in the challenge videos.

This new series covers many sections under the ‘business’ umbrella. I listened to your feedback after the first series and so many of you were keen to learn more about business & marketing techniques.

There are 3 inspirational shoots in this series but they are all approached with a business mindset – showing you that YOU can be creative and love what you’re shooting but also run a profitable business.

Will I learn more about pricing in this course?

Absolutely! I know this is always a big question! In the Business Fundamentals section – you’ll find a section called ‘Pricing Your Work’. This section breaks down pricing ‘know how’ in the industry including standard rates, help with finding a base rate, shoot estimates and knowing your worth in the industry you are in. If you are interested in learning more about pricing – you’ll also find the ‘Diversifying Your Revenue Streams’ section quite helpful.

Will I learn more about getting my work published in this course?

In the Marketing Section – I cover ‘Getting Published’ in depth. This is an important part of marketing your work as a commercial and fashion photographer. I’ll be covering why it’s important to get published, understanding the submission/commission/spec terminology and how to find the right magazine & contact at the publication. I will also be giving you tips and tricks on how to contact those key people!

You mentioned a Facebook Group - how do I access this?
