Being a constant reader of business books, I recently came across the best business book ever: Best Business Practices for Photographers by John Harrington.
Why is it the best? Because it helps photographers understand how to actually succeed as a business by understanding everything that goes into running a successful photography business. Setting pricing, establishing usage rates, creative fees, risk and time fees, licensing, copyright, estimates, insurance and so much more.
My mind has been blown wide open by the amount detail in this book. I’m only six chapters in and wish I had read the book years ago. But the good news is, I’m reading it now, taking notes and applying the knowledge and wisdom set forth by Harrington.
I highly recommend that any creative business owner buy and read this book because the reality is, creatives need all the business help that they can get and this book delivers the goods.
