In this completely FREE 50 minute webinar, I am sharing a look at some actual numbers from my business expenses to give you an idea about what a six figure photographer can expect with their business. Spoiler alert: Its no picnic!
Learn the inside scoop from Ginny Silver, owner and principal photographer of Retrospect Images (http://weddings.retrospectimages.com ) and educator at The Business of Wedding Photography (http://business.retrospectimages.com), who went from ZERO photography knowledge to building a six figure plus business in just 2 years.
YOU'LL WANT TO TUNE IN IF:
- You are an experienced photographer who wants to make the jump from part time to full time and wants to know what to expect financially
-You are a seasoned professional who is looking for solidarity and validation from a fellow industry friends who has undergone the same challenges just like you
-You are a new photographer who wants an honest look at what its like to be a wedding photographer, the expenses involved, and what to expect as you consider your journey to becoming a professional
I have found that...
While there are many resources out there which cover how to take a pretty photo, how to brand your business, and how to create a great client experience- there aren't many resources which get real about the behind the scenes financial side of the business. What does a full time photographer's actual expenses look like? What percentage of each wedding is set aside for taxes? What percentage of the income is actually take home pay? How does it break down to an hourly take home pay rate? And does ANYONE actually struggle with all of these same issues I am experiencing as my business undergoes growing pains?
Join me for some real talk - I'm happy to share what I have experienced with you in hopes that you will benefit, grow, and not makes the same mistakes I did.
And, because I want to be upfront with you, just a heads up that I am going to be plugging my Zero to Six Figures E Course at the end along with a special promotional rate for enrolling in it after the webinar. Please know that I truly believe this course is beyond valuable . I poured my heart and soul into writing it and really hope you will join me in growing your business to reach its full potential after the webiunar is over. (And if its not for you and you ignore the promo, no big deal! Thanks for tuning in regardless! I know you will walk away form the Free Webinar with some major valuable take-aways)
Hi, there! My name is Ginny and I am an internationally published and award winning wedding photographer. The weird thing? If you would have asked me just a few years ago for an intro, I would have told you a completely different story, as I never even picked up a camera until 2011. With lots of hard work, dedication, and pushing myself to master my craft every day I have been able to go from 0-60 in the wedding industry in just a few short years, and I’m here to help you do the same.
In 2011 I was working as a teacher at a private Montessori school, teaches ages 9-12 in a multi-grade classroom. If you would have told me at that time that within two years I would have done a 180 on my career- headed in a completely new direction, into a field where I had ZERO education and ZERO experience at that time, and would be making a six-figure gross income with next to no advertising budget, I would have thought you were absolutely crazy.
Somehow between 2012-2014 I was able to learn a completely new skill with no formal education, build a brand, and reach the right target market of clients to advance me to creating a high end wedding business. My first year in business I took in $26,000 and within two years I was taking in $140,000+ in gross sales. How was I able to grow that quickly with being completely self taught in my field and having next to no budget for advertising?
My career as a teacher was never something I thought I would leave- I loved it – but once I shot my first wedding and saw what having an emotional backstage pass to some of life’s most heartwarming moments felt like, I couldn’t turn back. Now, I am finding that my education background can play a part in my career as a photographer. I am an open book, and I can share how my path helped to grow my business, things I have learned along the way, and offer a little light in that long, dark, tunnel to your self employment dreams. You are not alone – its a rough road paving your own way and I am here to share every thing I did which lead me to achieve a six figure business in two short years.
Are you ready to join me in working hard to build a career that captures your clients most emotional moments and creates a self-made life that you love living?
