8 lessons learnt in 8 years of photographing

It’s one thing feeling as though you can take a good picture and are ready to start being paid for your photography and a whole other element being professional enough to run your own photography business.

We thought it may be helpful to those of you who are at the start (or even middle) or your photography journey to be able to hear from our experience, the kind of things you may come across and hopefully give you some tips for how to handle potentially tricky situations .

I can’t say we’ve always got it right, and we’ve certainly had to learn along the way BUT.. I do feel it allows us to at least share with you, what you can possibly come across and how you can lessen the worry.

If you could recommend anywhere in the UK or further a field then please let us know.
