Some people think that a photography business is a business based on capital, easily calculated by the total assets owned by the photographer, and expensive when it comes to studio and professional photography equipment. But now that paradigm has shifted, the digital age has carried with it a great change in the development of photography. You now don’t need to own an expensive camera and a studio for developing your film, or even a shop to sell your services.

In general, a photographer is a person that makes a career out of providing photography services. This usually comes in the process of: meeting with the client, photography session, printing, result transactions, and then getting paid for the services provided. But now the scope has widened.

Before starting a photography business, you need to establish a target market segment. Who are your potential consumers? You need to first assess the level of skill you have; because the higher your photography skills, the higher the chance of reaping greater financial rewards.

After establishing your skill level, you can then compile a portfolio. A portfolio is a collection of your personal work. A portfolio may consist of portraits, fashion photographs, photojournalism, still life, and other types of photography that define you as a photographer and your target audience. A portfolio can be printed and compiled into an album, or you can post them up in various social media site on the internet.

Then, start promoting. You can start promoting your services by giving out free photography services or by only being reimbursed for production fees just to get your name out there and to prove yourself.
