I heard from many mothers and from my colleagues that they were good at photography in their college life but didn't continue it after kids. So, if you are among these creative ladies and want to start your photography business or even stay at home photography business, then you must read these tips.
Determine Your Type of Photography: First of all, you need to understand what type of photography business you want to start. Or you can take photos of different styles of photography and can decide in which form of photography you are right. Some common photography types are family, social, outdoor and kids. You can pick any of them.
How Would Make Money: The second question that comes into mind that how would you make money from photography. If you are a professional, then you can start teaching photography. Hopefully, many newbies are very much interested in learning photography. You can use YouTube or your blog as a platform to offer you services. Similarly, you can conduct photography for your clients or even can sell them on sites like Shutterstock, Pond5 and iStock.
Pick A Business Name: Now, its time to pick a brand name for your photography business. You need to create a website, Vlog and social media account with your business name. You can see the availability of photography brand names from here, and it is better to pick a niche related one.
Photography Gear & Business Plan: Yes, it is time to work on your business plan and decide about the right photography gear. To save some pennies, you shouldn't compromise on the quality of photography gear. You must have a good quality camera, primary lens, camera tripod, SD memory cards, premium editing software, graphic designing laptop and lightening kit etc.
Build Your Portfolio: Either you have clients or not, you just need to create a strong portfolio. 500px, SmugMug and Zenfolio are good sites which can host your photography portfolio, and you can also share with your potential customers or even with social communities.
In short, I shared useful tips for mothers to start a photography business. You are also welcomed to share your ideas and suggestions in this regard.
