Growing Pains: Business Briefs


For the price of a subscribing to a great blog, readers can download a free business ebook from's Jim Talkington. “Starting a Photography Business (An Overview)” is contains the first fourteen entries this wonderful photography website that I've been recently following. While the same information can be found on this website by searching, Talkington believes it's more useful to print things and make notes in the margins.

Need more resources? Here is a list of business photography books that Talkington recommends:

Pricing Photography by Michal Heron and David MacTavish
ASMP Professional Business Practices in Photography.
Best Business Practices for Photographers by John Harrington
Thank you for reading www.prophotolife. I hope you enjoy your download of “Starting a Photography Business”.



The Professional Photographers of America is hosting a charity event to benefit Operation Smile, a worldwide children’s medical charity dedicated to improving the health and lives of children born with cleft lips, cleft palates, and other facial deformities.

Participate in the PPA's Family Portrait Month national promotion during October, and pledge to contribute a portion of each family portrait sale to PPA Charities. October is the perfect time to purchase family portraits for home d├ęcor, gift-giving, and holiday cards. Use this profitable business sales time to collect money for Operation Smile. Just sign up online and make the small $25 donation, and you’re on your way to making a difference.

Once you sign up, you get access to the online marketing resources, including success stories, photographer-led marketing designs and templates, sample marketing copy, logos, and more.

Thanks to the efforts and generosity of everyone participating, PPA Charities raised $52,000 for Operation Smile in 2007, helping around 225 children to receive life-changing surgery (it costs approximately $240 for a cleft lip surgery).
