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.
Today we talk about how to make money as an outdoor and nature photographer. Charlie shares with us his strategy for how to plan and then accumulate the images your clients will pay good money for. 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. Charlie also has a very good course on how to do all of this, so check it out in the show notes.

My special guest for today’s episode is from Paris and his name is Mark.
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. Mark was staring his alone in the beginning and he has progressed but a little bit slow. Since he’s taken my PhotoProfit 8 week course he had some major results. He actually doubled his business in 8-12 weeks. He’s become known as the photographer in his network. Mark has taken action each week in my 8 week course that’s why he’s starting to get results.

We also talked about knowing your WHY and why is it important to know your WHY. We also talked about mindset, how to network and how to get actual clients.
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.
