Free Education

One of the most important things you can do for your business is continued education. Absorb anything you can. Everything!  One of the great things about this industry is that there are many many educators who offer free education in the form of blog posts. Read & bookmark anything you can. See our free educational blog here.



Want more than just a blog post to teach you what you seek to learn? Courses are a great investment in yourself and your business. They can truly take you to the next level.  Make sure that you are seeking a reputable course that can benefit – do your research. See our education courses here.



A contract should be utilized with every client your studio elects to serve.  A good contract is the backbone on which a good photographer/client relationship rests. It should expressly state the duties and obligations of each party to the contract, outlining the expectations of both parties. See our contracts here.



Joining a community of like-minded people can help you grow leaps & bounds. Yes, there are many that are more like a catty sorority but we suggest one like TheLawTog® - the go-to legal resource for photographers where you can ask questions & gain knowledge as you grow. Join the community now.
