Let us introduce ourselves

Hi Everyone,

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.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Scott & Lisa

I really hope that you all are going to give all of the information that you say you are. I have been looking for this type of information for some time. I have always wanted to be a photographer, but never knew really just where to start.

Posts like this really motivate us in what were doing.

We totally understand how you feel and have been there ourselves. We never thought we would be where we are today...not to mention having others wanting us to teach them our success.

Thanks for posting and stay tuned!

Hey guys!

I want to start out by saying, way to go! You are taking a leap into a type of educational experience that for the most part is non-existent. When I was first learning to shoot I spent hours on You Tube searching for videos just to find little bits here and there. Most of which was too specific to the nature of a single subject. The fact that you guys are covering starting a business from start to finish is unbelievable. I would of paid allot of money for this information starting out.

We started our business about a year ago now. We are also a husband and wife team. Our focus has been mostly on events, sports, weddings, church, sports and anything of the outdoor nature. We are both very interested in taking portraits and... slowing down the constant running from venue to venue. We have a very basic lighting setup we use for traveling and Nikon D300's. After watching these first two videos we are really exploring the idea of setting up shop in our own home. We eagerly look forward to the next videos and wish the best of luck to the both of you.

Thanks again,
Robb & Lisa Harper

I was thrilled when I found your sites and all the valuable information for all of us just trying to get started. I have a question for you, how do you go about deciding on a professional printer? There seem to be quite a few options out there, what do you recommend? Thanks!

Thanks and bless you for sharing all this wealth/knowledge with us :)

I stumbled across one of the videos using a google search, and I am so glad that I clicked onto the link. My wife and I have been brainstorming for the last few weeks about starting a photography business and this couldn't have come at a better time. We are very encouraged by the videos and the blogs, and we know that we're off on the right foot.
