The Business of Photography



If you’ve ever attempted to photograph your own flatlay images for branded photographs to share on your Instagram page, Facebook account, or even your website you’re probably aware that there are many different options for you as far as your background choices go.

If you’re just getting into the industry or want to learn what it’s like to be a full time wedding photographer; or if you’re a wedding photographer who just doesn’t want the demand of editing and booking his/her own weddings; or if you’re a professional photographer looking to subsidize your photography business income – then maybe you want to consider becoming a second shooter.

Over the past 7 years of being in business I’ve learned a lot about myself and how my brain processes information so I can hit a stride with working on projects.
