The Business of Photography – Transitioning to Full Time (Podcast 363)

Today, I’m joined by David duChemin, to discuss the business of photography, particularly with regards to transitioning to full time photographer, and the sort of things that you should think seriously about before taking the plunge, or not, as the case may be.

Topics covered include…

  • It ain’t easy!
  • Work vs job
  • Importance of finding an audience
  • Multiple revenue streams and passive revenue
  • Money is not a dirty word

A number of books were mentioned, which you can buy on Amazon with the following links:

The 4-hour Workweek by Timothy Ferriss.

Crush It! by Gary Vaynerchuk.

The Long Tail, Revised and Updated Edition: Why the Future of Business is Selling Less of More, by Chris Anderson.

The E-Myth: Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work and What to do About it, by Michael E. Gerber.

The E-Myth Revisited: Why Most Small Businesses Don’t Work and What to Do About It

And of course, although David wouldn’t recommend this himself, if you haven’t read David’s best seller Vision Mongers yet, this is a must.

And to finish, here’s a recent shot of me in the office, by David duChemin.
