Welcome to this course on starting your own photography business. My name is Phil Epner and I am so excited to present this class with my good friend Will Carnahan who is a photography business owner who has run very successful businesses in the past. And this course is really meant for you to get started and to show you the step by step process to start your own business. Our goal is by the end of this course you'll have a business up and running, you'll know all the steps that you need, whether it's the formation of a business and all of the technical and official stuff that you need to get started. To advice on how to actually get started as a business, how to get your first clients, how to set up your business website, what prices to charge, what equipment you need to get started and all kinds of advice like that. This is a class for photographers who already know how to shoot photos. This is not a class where we're going to be teaching you how to be a photographer how to take grea...
t photos. This is really for people who are a little bit more advanced and really want to take it to the next level. The main components of this course include basic lessons, where will will walk you through each step of starting a business, give you tips and advice on that topic at the end of each section Will and I will be getting together to have a more one on one conversation and a going through a case study of his own personal business that he's starting right now from scratch. So it will be really exciting to walk through and give you real world examples of how to put into practice. All of the tips and advice will is giving you and see that with real world examples. And we've also included a downloadable worksheet. This is a really big complete guide that will help you as we go through each step. So that's going to be in the next lesson. Make sure you download it, print it out if you can and really use it as a step by step guide. It will help you feel accomplished as you check off each box and it includes links and helpful things like that. That will help you throughout this course. And we also encourage you to join the photography and Friends facebook community, which is a great place where you can get help from other photographers and instructors like us will include a link to that in the next lessons as well.
