Everybody knows that all the most important business discussions are made on the golf course. Even if that gold course is sometimes just a back yard putting green. This is exactly the setting used for RGG EDU’s series of shorts with world renowned sports & commercial photographer Tim Tadder. In the videos, Tim talks about several different aspects about the photography business. Fantastic information for newcomers, but also some good tips for those who’ve been at it a while.
The focus is more towards commercial, but much of it can also apply to other types of photography business, too. Breaking into a new market, figuring out pricing, what to do with downtime, should you specialise? It’s a fantastic series of topics. It not only answers some questions, but helps you start figuring out which ones you need to ask yourself next.
The series, titled Par for the Course, is in 18 parts. However, only 9 seem to have been posted so far. Here are the first couple to get you going.
Tim also talks about some of the changes that are coming to the industry. How photographers are evolving, thanks in part to things like video and social media. There are so many more outlets for creatives to unleash their content now than ever before. Those, too, are constantly evolving and changing as technology goes forward (and sometimes a little backward).
You can watch the complete playlist here, and it’s packed full of great information, and Tim certainly doesn’t mince words.
What were your favourite tips from the videos? Which resonated the most with you? And which do you think will help your business grow the most in the future? Let us know in the comments.
