I've always had a passion for photography and took 2 years of schooling for it, I do know how to develope black and white film, although I will not be using film, but more digital, and maybe film if so desired from customers.
I've been talking about starting up a photography business focussing on mainly animals/pets, since we do not have anything like that in my area. I already have cameras (3), lenses (6), back drops, photo printer, scanner, and of course the natural beauty of my area. I'm thinking about going to the local humane society and volunteer my time to take photo's of the animals there to help with their online gallery and adoptions to kind of get some more training in, as if I do that I will continue to do that regardless of where my business goes. I know I'll need a local working permit. We already have insurance as far as dog bites (hope that doesn't happen).
My question is...What more will I need to do? How would one go about advertising besides online/ Local newspaper, magazines?
How does one price their settings/photography? Do you print or send off to print? Thanks for any info you may have to offer in advance, and I promise I will or would never steal anyones paying customers!
Just a few pics, tell me what you think! I do realize working with 'other' animals will be a bit of a challenge, but I really know I can handle it!
