In this PhotoProfit podcast I interview Charlie Borland from Oregon. He has been shooting professionally for over 30 years and has his images published in National Geographic, Time Magazine, Outdoor Photographer, Newsweek, NY Times and dozens of other publications.

We run through a case-study of how to get started shooting a kayaker: How to approach them, what to offer them in compensation. We talk about model releases and then how to take those images and get them in front of the right people.

He has a very smart tip that no one is doing any more – and I’m sure it will get the attention of the right people, the ones who will pay you for your images. If you have ever wanted to make a living from your outdoor and nature images, then this is the show to listen to.

Today, we’re going to do a case study of a startup photography business. We’ll talk about Mark’s struggles when he was setting up his photography business.

Bernie Griffiths is my special guest in today’s episode.

In today’s show, we’re going to do a case study on one of Bernie’s clients in New Zealand, Kim who’s doing a horse book project. It’s a really smart way getting a great PR in your community; giving back to charity and creating something that gets clients walking through your door. 

The interesting part about this horse project is that Kim is doing a lot of it remotely. She’s not running the planning session face to face nor doing the sales presentation the same way; she does these all online. And guess what she’s manages to make? Over $1000 on average per client.

Let’s find out how we can make this happen in your photography business.
