Successful Photographer Offers Tips and Breaks Myths About Creating A Six Figure Photography Busines
Online marketing strategist and successful photographer Lori Osterberg shares secrets that help photographers build a Six Figure Photography business.
[USPRwire, Fri Feb 05 2010] Photographers are more in demand now than in any other time in our history. In our visual world, advertising specialists tell us that we see anywhere from 1,500 to 5.000 advertising messages per day, most of them with some type of photography as a part of its representation.
And according to online marketing strategist and successful photographer Lori Osterberg, now is the best time to turn your love of photography into a full time business model that can easily make a Six Figure income and beyond in a relatively short period of time.
“Millions of people around the world use a digital camera on a regular basis, and would love to find a way to make money with their photography,” stated Osterberg. “The thought of being able to make money doing something they love really brings out the emotions.”
And Osterberg knows this feeling first hand. After watching her father re-interview year after year for a job he hated, just so he could make retirement age, she decided to dive into the world of photography and entrepreneurship – and has never looked back.
“There are literally dozens of ways to make money with your camera – from photographing babies and children, to weddings and events, to selling photographs of your vacation to stock agencies and magazines. The possibilities are really endless,” stated Osterberg.
After working with many startup photography businesses over the years, Osterberg has found that 3 key tasks help photographers stay focused on turning photography into a source of income.
1. Choose what you love. Some people love working with people. Some love hiking into the backcountry, being completely alone for days on end. It’s all possible with photography.
2. Find mentors. In every field of photography, there are people doing what you want to do. Find a mentor and follow their career. Use their accomplishments as a model for your own business.
3. Start with a plan in place. Saying you would love to be a photographer and actually doing it are two different things. Make a commitment to getting the business started, and take steps daily to get it into place.
While thousands of people dream of becoming a photographer, thousands more are doing something to make the dream a reality. But it does take a special kind of commitment. Osterberg says, “If you want to build a successful, Six Figure Photography business, than you have to be willing to take the first step.” Osterberg’s Six Figure Photographer site is available for view at http://sixfigurephotographer.com/
