Ep 204: How to turn your photography hobby into a six figure business with special guest Jeff Brown

We talk to Jeff Brown, an expert in marketing for photographers. In this interview we chat about: the importance of niching down as a photographer, the areas that most photographers waste time in; common mistakes photographers make using social media; why you should double or triple your prices; why you should think like a luxury brand; and we do a deep dive into Linkedin one of the most underused and best social media platforms for photographers.

How to remove a green colour cast

Colour casts are difficult to see with the naked eye, and often are not noticed until you view the image on a computer.

Ep 203: Taking photography from hobby to side hustle and beyond with special guest Natalie Finney

We love it when we discover a photographer who started snapping as a hobby – but is then able to turn that interest into something more. Photographer Natalie Finney has done just that and we chat to her about her journey and passion for portraiture. Over the past two years, Natalie has focused on growing her business, slowly and steadily. She has amassed a varying portfolio of work, from weddings and corporate events, to commercial and fine-art/conceptual photography, however she is always drawn back to family portraiture, preferring to take a candid, documentary-styled approach.

Are we there yet?

Above: Image, Gina Milicia Always believe in the destination but enjoy the journey. One of the reasons I love to walk or ride my bike is because it forces me to experience the journey rather than focus on getting to the destination. When I’m in my car, life is comfortable. I’m warm, protected from the elements and can safely focus on “are we there yet?”. I’m all about getting to the destination as quickly as possible. The same journey on foot or on my bike is completely different. I notice more, I feel more, I remember more, I experience more. As artists we are constantly striving for the next destination, our focus on getting “there” as quickly as possible but in doing so we miss many of the valuable lessons learnt on the slow road. When I first started out as a photographer I just wanted to hurry up and...
