Not so long ago, back in June I sat down with Stephen Cotterell - the host of the Photography 121 Podcast and recorded a conversation for public consumption. Based on the feedback it seems it was quite well received and that people enjoyed listening to mine and Stephen's musings. I must add that I found the whole thing to be a thoroughly enjoyable experience too!
Following on from that conversation with Stephen I've now appeared on another photography podcast!
This time I was a guest on the popular Photobiz Xposed podcast.
In this podcast Andrew Hellmich (host) and I talk about the business of photography, including: Getting started in business, knowing your numbers, how to set your prices, marketing, my improvement since getting over a gear obsession and the ever-popular subject of 'Making the Transition to full time photographer' .
I've no problem in admitting I'm not a full time professional (yet). I certainly am a professional but I just have a day job too. In the interview with Andrew we discuss this in depth with no-holes-barred and even go into detail and take a look at the money side of things too.
Premium Membership Content
But...before I tell you where you can go to listen to the interview, please note that there is also some bonus material that Andrew and I recorded for those people who are a Premium Members of the show. Andrew and I dive into the spreadsheet from which I run my photography business. It's an all-in-one tool that'll total up your working hours, figure out the tax and then tell you your hourly rate (in Sterling, as well as Canadian, Australian and US dollars.
Not only that if you're a photographer who's getting started and can't quite figure out how to set your prices, this part is perfect for you, as the spreadsheet has the answer! (as long as you know your cost of living)/
The bonus material is considered to be premium content, so, if you enjoy the free part of our conversation and want to hear more, be sure to head to the premium section and sign up. You'll not only get my bespoke photography business finance & cost calculator, but also a whole host of premium content from the numerous other photographers Andrew has interviewed since the Podcast started, such as Jonas Peterson, Jerry Ghionis and others.
