Starting Your Career as a Freelance Photographer by Tad Crawford

Starting your own business is scary. Especially if you have no background in business! It’s easy to make mistakes and feel overwhelmed when getting started. That’s where this book comes in: Crawford gives incredibly helpful advice on not only how to get started, but how to manage your own studio. Although some of the more specific advice is given with an audience of photographers in mind, anyone who is thinking of running his/her own business ought to check out what this book has to offer. Some of the insights Crawford mentions are:
  • How to do your taxes correctly
  • Health and Safety management (darkrooms)
  • Legalities, your rights, and how to copyright your work
  • Pricing your work and successful negotiating
  • Establishing and protecting your business (leasing, insurance, etc.)
  • Sample invoices, contracts, and tax forms
