About the Event
This presentation is not about how to price your work or about how to make a beautiful image. It will address another very important factor in being a professional photographer - money and the weird emotions all photographers seem to have regarding it. Have you ever been afraid to charge for your work or raise your prices? Do you pay yourself? Do you dream of contributing to your family's needs financially? This presentation will start the discussion of paying yourself. Explore what might be stopping you. It will address the fear behind the finances of a photography business. We will open up the topic of why as artists we are afraid to charge what we are worth and, worse, not keep a fair amount of the profits. We have a strong professional photography community here in Colorado Springs. Let's help each other earn a living in a profession we all care so much about.
