This book took a long time to read, since it was exceptionally boring. Not to mention the constant typos and spelling errors all over the place (was this book even proof-read before press?? Sheesh! I eventually lost count.). The book doesn't really tell you how to start a business. All it really is a book full of the author's own photos along with countless interviews with other established photogs (mostly if not all Minneapolis-based) and some of their own photos. I read it all the way thru, hoping to find some insight on how to start my own business, but it never came. Just general things about the business itself and how people got in the photog business, and the authors own stories about hers. It seems to be more geared toward owning a studio since the author has 2 studios herself.

I'm in the process of starting my own business but I didn't know where to start. This book has given me direction. I recommend it to anyone starting a photography business that simply needs to know "How do I do this?" The interviews are great because you see how others started but also how opinions differ between photographers/business owners.

Great book to inspire that inner business in yourself! Most of the book is first hand stories about how to start a photography business by photographers around the U.S. Great read and really motivates you while also teaching you from those who have had the previous "uh oh" experiences!

I happen to be the business mind in our studio, but knew little about photography when I started. This book had many little tidbits which helped me. It would really be helpful to photographers who are not business minded and want to know how to make a great start to making their photography a full-blown business. If you have a business degree and are looking to get into photography this is NOT the book for you. If you are an amature photographer looking to go Pro, a definite read!

I enjoyed this book however I think that it needed more information, especially when it comes to pricing products. I felt that the book needed more in that area. Overall it is a good read. I do think this book has great information and has enough to get started structuring your own business. So I would say for a starter guide, it's good. It answers questions that I hadn't thought of.

Required textbook for my photography business class. Maybe a little wordy - but what textbook isn't?
Photographers with any aspiration to sell their work need some insight to the business side of the work.
