You have reached the archive of articles posted on my personal blog. This blog is no longer updated, but you can read my latest articles at my new website The Creative Photographer and find my photography ebooks at my new store.
Thanks for reading! Andrew.
Corwin, the author of the latest Craft & Vision ebook, will be familiar to some of you as David duChemin’s manager. If you earn a living, or part-time income, as a photographer, or have any desire to do so, then Corwin’s books are essential reading.
Many creatives struggle with the business side of things, especially if they are used to being employees rather than business owners. Growing the Visionmonger 2 helps address that by giving you practical advice to help your growing business.
It contains 20 ideas to help you find clients, get organised, learn new business skills and ultimately earn more money. Each idea has a ‘Take Action’ step – an exercise designed to push you to go out and take the steps required to develop your business.
One of the key ideas for me in the book is the importance of a Business Action Plan – a list of the most important things to do this week, this month and this year in order to move your business forward. This is something I haven’t thought about much in the past, and is something I am going to put into action.
There are also 12 Q&A’s. That’s where Corwin has interviewed a professional photographer to find out what makes their business tick – and what they would do differently if they were starting out again.
