Use our websites galleries to study, study, study.
I know in the beginning we would study other photographers websites to get our creative juices flowing. Sometimes once you see an idea, it helps with your own portrait shoots.
You will also see some of the classic props we use to receive some really priceless shots.
Also, pay attention to what we include on our website. We send every client that calls our studio to the website for samples of our work. This has been a great tool for our business and is what will sell your portrait style. You just can't receive the same results in a yellow page Ad or newspaper.
I will be doing a video on why a website is important and what to include in yours in a future Module. I will also show you how I create flash slideshows to display our work.
So, go check out our website and study our shots.
If you want to go straight to the galleries....here's the link.

Use this space to talk with each other or to ask a question. We know how important it is to surround yourself with people that want the same thing. In this case we all love photography and want to turn it into a career. That is exactly what we wanted over 10 years ago and now it's a reality.
We now want to share our knowledge and experiences with the "Just starting out crowd". You can save so much time and energy if you just had a mentor or successful business to show you the way.
So don't be shy. No matter how silly you feel your questions are, just ask. That's how you will succeed.
If your not currently on our insider list, you can be added by filling out the form on the right.
Scott & Lisa
We're Scott and Lisa Voelker and we started this blog to help people start their own home based photography business.
We have been running our own successful children's photography business for almost 10 years. Currently, we are in the process of finishing our complete New Photo Biz course on how to get started building your career in children's photography.
We have received many questions that you would like answered and are currently putting together a step by step blueprint that you can follow to achieve success like we have.
This blog is where you will find the latest news and updates on our New Photo Biz course. We will be posting and answering questions on this blog to help you before the course is finished. We would appreciate any questions or suggestions you may have in regards to starting your own photography business.
We are also looking into having live tele-seminars that Lisa and I will be hosting in the future to help people immediately. The tele-seminars will be recorded and available to our email list via podcast.
We are also in the process of recording a full video from one of our first teachers that answered a lot of our questions early on. He currently has a Great workshop teaching beginners and intermediate photographers the ins and outs of photography. We're keeping our fingers crossed that we can get this done real soon. We may even get him to sit down and do a one on one interview. This guy really knows the technical stuff and helped us out in the beginning tremendously.
If there are any questions you want answered in our upcoming posts or our free videos, enter your first name and email address in the box above and we will send you some really good stuff as we produce it.
We want to make sure that we cover the most popular questions asked. Our goal is to help as many people as we can that are just starting out and want to get going right away.
When we were getting started it was a lot of trial and error. Actually a lot more of the error (lol). We are developing an easy and profitable business blueprint to follow that we have perfected over the years. We only wish that we had this information when we started. It would have saved a lot of time and frustration.
Most of what will be releasing will be in video and audio format. This will make it much easier to follow and understand. Our goal is to keep it simple.
Don't forget to submit your name and email in the form located on the right of this blog.
