My Experience as Part of a Wedding Photography Business
When Phill and I first started I thought that the majority of time would be spent taking pictures of beautiful wedding couples around Birmingham and actually all over the UK! Well, I was wrong.
We had to create and maintain our website, run our finances, promote our business, attend networking events, work on creating collaborations with other wedding suppliers, attending wedding fayres… and of course, taking pictures at weddings!
To be completely honest though, as somebody who has a business degree, I found the business part of the running the business as enjoyable, challenging and rewarding as taking pictures itself! My university had showed me the path, but I had to walk it myself.
I’ll leave you with this: if you are a creative person of any kind and want to know how you can work in the creative industry, then be brave and ask questions; find a mentor; get out of your comfort zone and don’t forget that running a business is not just the creative part of it so prepare yourself thoroughly before you start on this amazing journey!
