Get professional experience- Consider getting experience with another photographer first so you can learn the basics of starting a photography business.
Get your finances together- First things first, create a financial plan. Don’t start off with crazy purchases with things that aren’t necessary at the moment. You always want to make sure that the money you put into your business you can get back over time.
Get your gear up- In order to start a photography business you should have all the necessary equipment including but not limited to: cameras, multiple lenses, flashes, lights and editing software. It’s also a good idea to have backup cameras and lenses just in case something breaks or is malfunctioning.
Create a portfolio- Put together a portfolio/website to showcase your work to your potential clients. This way your clients can also understand your photography style as well.
Think about pricing- How much are you going to charge your clients? Usually companies charge by the hour, so figure out how much your time is worth, including the time it takes to edit the pictures.
Advertise- Get your business out there! Post your company on social media, go to networking events, collaborate with other companies so you can gain clients through other connections.
