Being Prepared For Your Photo Session

One of the biggest obstacles everyone faces when first getting started in this business is gaining confidence. The first step in achieving this is to have a game plan.

In this video I will show you a short check list that will help you feel in control and prepared for your session. Feel free to take notes and custom tailor this to your photography business.




As always...leave your comments below and let me know what you think. If you have any other questions, I will try and answer them in up coming videos.

Good Luck!

Hello, I am new to your info and must say I am blessed to have found you, I wish I found you sooner than now, but things happen for reason. What a blessing you have been just the little I have found you have shared,you really helped shine so hope in my life. I have been looking for info just like this.(THANK YOU) I have been a stay at home mother for 11years and i have 4 boys, and they are slowly gaining there own wings. Every Christmas I pose my boys to make a christmas card and it always a big joke..So when I told my family and close friends about me learning Photography they all said YES that is so YOU. I have been studying photo for a year now. I have done excatly what you did, Went to cord camera got the d60 the lens 18/55 and 55/200 1 black backdrop and 3 storblight kit(still cluless)a computer with CS3 (still cluless on that too)I have tap our family enough in thinking I don't have enough to go and take professinal pictures. I have these future ideals but just get going is the hard part.I have spent so much money for classes and even a couple online things. My husband said I want you to do this because you can but you need to get some income in.(he was very sweet about it) I want to do Childrens, Pets, and Seniors...My thought is without extra backdrops/props I am clueless how I get going? Do you have any suggestions??(I want to try to do monthly poses (like fall is coming.(I see some things I like to buy(cute props) but with only one income and 4 boys there is no way for me to do that. So for me its really basic which I get a little overwhelmed with HUMM how can I be creative and make this work and have people pay me when there is other to offer more. Are you also still doing podcast (I only see 2008) and are you still selling product?? I love your easy talking your step by step. Please help a new pup waiting to get out there!!!!(and cluless on to do what she has) And again thank you SO VERY MUCH for your giving spirit. You are a blessing:>)

I think the "model" is not always a person, however; for instance, advertising in print often requires photographic depiction of advertised goods, and food can be the subject of magazine articles (often in very elaborate presentations).
