What my Students are saying
10X review! Woow above and beyond my expectations so many points that I had never thought about. Highly recommended, Nancy
Great for newcomers to get info and determine next steps
The course is great for those who want to learn about setting up a photography/video business . It gives an overall perspective, especially focusing on video.
This is NOT a course for someone who already is in the business or is seeking technical details on how to edit a video in Apple Mac or take a quality photo in low light.
However, instead if focuses on the other skills needed to run the business. It starts at the beginning covering logos, websites, and social media. The gear/software needed and why is covered. It discusses how to get business with examples and then completes the course with info on invoicing and "game" day shooting. It discusses the various resources that are available out there so the student can deep dive into any of those areas. The instructor provides great real-world tips and examples.
In conclusion, this is great for the newbie to learn about the business and get them going. It will also help them decide the next steps they will take.
