This has got to be the best investment I ever made. If I went elsewhere it would cost me thousands and still wouldn’t be anywhere as good as this.

Key Business Skills

Natural light food photography classes

As much as you need to be a talented and passionate photographer to run a successful photography business, you also need to know key business skills and understand your market. In these classes Karl shows you how to do just that. You’ll learn how to reach the right target markets by following key points, and we also offer a marketing plan to help you maximise your success.

Pricing & Billing

One light food photography class

To help you overcome the challenges associated with pricing your work, Karl provides an overview of what costs you should be looking at to help you determine your pricing. He discusses day rates, outside services (retouchers and models etc), set building and props, agents, equipment and studio rental as well as looks at usage fees and how you can find the right balance in what to charge.

Contracts & Legal

Advanced studio lighting classes

Don’t get caught out by not having the correct paperwork. Learn about professional contracts when working with models or stylists for your shoots and get documents such as model release forms and terms and conditions, which are essential for any commercial projects. Karl also explains the importance of each and provides downloads for the most important documentation.
