OMG so glad I found you. Loving your work!
I am currently studying Computer Science and I'm so in love with photography , I want to start a photography business. How can I learn more about photography? Do i need a degree?
One of the best things I got from high school was that I was able to keep my student google account which gives me unlimited storage on google drive forever :).
What about using different lenses?

This was such an informative video that covered things I wasn’t even thinking of as I’m just now starting my photography business. Thank you! Subscribing!
is it still too late to start now?
Why doesn't anybody ever make a video on starting the photography business? Like the legalization, ein, Registering with your city ect .. it's great that this content is here thank you for laying it out for everyone… but even after learning all this and watching it 40 times I'm no closer to starting a business… than I was when I looked up how to start a business..
Aye bro Thanks for this.. I'm going to use this whole setup. Except IMA stick with my Sony. But I didn't think about some of this . or know about
Love this and love you but id really love to see you talk about all the legal procedures it takes to start a business
Investing in yourself is a game changer!

Wish I had seen this video before I bought my camera. Enjoyed this video. Hope I can get started with my photography business.
How did you get started doing weddings? I been wanting to do it for awhile but don’t really know where to start .
This is great stuff man. Thanks.

I love your positivity!
hoping to start my business soon and these tips really did help. cheers, brother

How do you price your weddings?
What about a computer to run all this stuff?
Excellent, to the point and professional. 🇺🇸👍🏼💯
I’ve got a 5 year old Nikon D5200 in NEW condition and I think it’s time to get out their and put it to use! Job no more thanks to Coronavirus…
I'm just passing by to say I like your frame 🤓
Oh… and that was a great video 💯👍🏾
Great content👍🏾👍🏾. This really helped point me in the right direction.
Great information, very helpful. Thank you.
Man I was thinking about starting with with a t7i or d3500
Your work is very good. Do you have a background in photography or are you self taught?
Did you study somewhere? My last question is the XT3 or XT30 really that good (the camera and lens doesn't have image stabilization)? This is so important to me because I'm looking at cameras now. I'm an artist and have used 35mm since the '70s. However, I don't know much about mirrorless cameras

my brain: $10.99
Is LegalZoom cool to set up an LLC…If not,Who ?
May I ask if you only shoot using natural light? Or did you start without lighting and started building up from there? I'm asking cuz I'm wondering if natural light (probably plus an on camera flash for indoors) is enough for starting or in general..
Heavily invested in equipment but find it difficult to sell myself. That said this video encouraged me to start a portfolio : https://jayshamilton-photography.squarespace.com. Feedback please.
John thats great advice about the client management system. I was ready to bust out the old exel spreadsheet to stay organized.
Thank you for sharing. Very useful information
Hi John- Great video, super helpful! I was actually hoping for some advice. More than anything I enjoy shooting Urbex (Urban Exploring) Photography. Basically exploring abandoned buildings and taking pictures as I go. I currently have a public instagram dedicated to my abandoned photography but no website with prints for sale. I guess where I feel a bit stuck is simply getting started and not knowing whether I need to start thinking about shooting more weddings, portraits, events, etc. to actually get some business. What are your thoughts on some first steps I should take to making my business a reality?
50 cards for $20 is sort of expensive- I get a lot more at Staples for that sort of money.
Very very awesome video!
