Book Description

My goal for writing The Recession-Proof Photographer is to help photographers succeed as business people. This is not a "how-to take better photos" book (although I give some insight to this). I also assume upfront that you have some aptitude as a photographer, which has led you to want to make a career out of photography
Frankly, photographers are notoriously guarded on the secrets of their success and books on running a photo business are few and far between. This ebook allows you pick my brain on this subject.
Along the way I have made a multitude of mistakes that you can avoid. I have also discovered some key distinctions that have helped my bottom-line.
The book also contains information on marketing, how to take great shots, pricing and billing, negotiating, and building a portfolio that sells you!
Is this just for up-and-coming professionals? No! You might be a stay-at-home mom wanting to supplement the household income; you might be a student; or you might be a cubicle dweller who is desperate to escape the corporate world! You might want a part-time job as a photographer  or to simply test the water?

5.0 out of 5 stars Down to earth advice for photogs August 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This e-book was quite an enjoyable read. The first thing that I noticed was how easy it was to read - the author uses normal language, without heaps of technical terms to bog you down. The entire thing was quite straightforward, without trying to impress readers or blind them with claims of how easy it is to get rich with photography (because quite frankly, it is a long, hard process). I really appreciated how honest but encouraging the author was. The book contains plenty of solid, helpful advice, with information on getting started, tips on how to improve weak areas and so on within various aspects of photography business. You might even want to keep a pen and paper handy to jot down a list of pointers to review and remember later! Like the other user mentioned above, I've also been pushed to reorganise and fine-tune my business thanks to this book. On a side note, I'd definitely suggest subscribing to Wallis' blog/RSS feed if you found this book helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book, very positive and informative February 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book after seeing some segments that the author had put on Twitter. I was extremely impressed by the book - very to the point and with no filler. It was positive and upbeat, full of excellent tips on the business side of running a business (relevant for other small start-ups, not just photographers). It helps that the photographer who wrote it is outstanding too, as many books like this are written by people who kinda sorta know the business. This is much more authentic, and had me instantly reorganizing my business, and full of drive and enthusiasm. Well worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit different February 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is very interesting to read something different. This book is from the point of view of a pro who wasn't considered as the best of the best. If one want to know what it looks like to work in the industry full of stars and fight your way trough it this is the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every Single Creative Entrepreneur should read this! January 4, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An absolute steal at $5, this book should be every creative entrepreneurs bible on how to be successful. The author tells it like it is, and in my opinion, shares advice that is priceless. From how to avoid being ripped off, to why you should never work on "spec" it's full of tips that will avoid the starving artist curse!

Are you thinking of quitting your day job and becoming a photographer? Before doing so you should read this book first. It tells you where to get the training you need, how much money you could potentially make, what it really takes to run a successful creative enterprise, and how to find new business. This book is much like drinking a cup of espresso, it is very short, very effective and it delivers. A must read for the budding creative professional.

More About the Author

15 years ago I was editing a swimsuit photo shoot at my study cubicle while doing a Masters degree in Auckland University.

The smartest guy there shook his head and said to me: "Why are you here? If I were you I would MUCH rather be doing photography!" That was it for me. I abandoned my degree and headed to the USA.

I attended Brooks Institute of Photography and then struck out on my own as a commercial photographer.

I love photography and beautiful 1970s vibe photos but I am also strongly drawn to (and influenced by) the lifestyle-freedom living in Southern California. Why? As my mentor Brian Tracy says: you never hear about the "German dream" or" New Zealand dream" for that matter...

Now I am ready to share how to be successful at photography.
