Up-Close Interview with a Commercial Photographer

So, if you’ve read much of my stuff, you know that the inspiration for what I’m doing here comes from my dad.  While growing up, my friends always commented that being a photographer must be the coolest thing in the world.  And yes, I’ve always thought my dad was the coolest in the world – and I still do.

But, as I’ve grown up (still working on that) I’ve realized that being a SUCCESSFUL photographer is a heck of a lot harder than it looks.  I watched dad work his tail off and do amazing things.  I also watched when times were tough because work slowed down occasionally.

During the last 10 years I’ve learned the secrets of making money using the internet.  I’ve also learned that having a photography business is only hard because photographers usually know nothing about marketing. And, with this new-found knowledge, I’ve developed a passion for helping my dad take his business to the next level and allow him to make the money he deserves without having to work so hard.  That’s why I’ve created the Over[Exposure] course that will be coming out soon.  Pre-register now to learn how to get MASSIVE exposure on the web selling your photos or your photographic services.

Anyway, earlier this week, I had a chance to get dad on the phone and interview him about his business.  If you’re interested in growing a commercial photography business, you definitely need to listen to this interview.  If you want to check the work of someone who’s an absolute master at capturing light – go to his site Jerry Garns Studio.

Here’s the interview:

P.S.  The Over[Exposure] course will contain all the steps you need (including a ton more interviews with successful photographers) to systematically put your photo business into money-making mode.
