Beware of a very common mistake when planning your start up. Naturally, many are worried that they will have insufficient sales when they begin. This leads them to try and create too many income streams from various initiatives. All are probably viable, but not if your supporting effort is diluted. Much better to select one, or at the very most two, major areas and concentrate and focus on them alone. To get a business up and running requires energy, enthusiasm, commitment and above all a very clear focus on the core business.

Whilst photography can't be learnt from a book there is one book which can underpin the tutoring and teaching you may receive. This book is very clear and concise and highlights all the major areas you need to know as a start-up photographer.
“Create The Image”, by Charles Green, is by far and away the best book in its field. Although retired now Charles remains one of the foremost portrait photographers in the world. He is a fellow of the British Institute of Professional Photography, a fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, a fellow of the Master Photographers Association, a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, a fellow of the American Society of Photographers and has a Masters and Craftsman degree in photography and digital imaging from the Professional Photographers of America.
The other book, which is totally different and is really about basic photography, that we recommend is “Read This If You Want to Take Great Photographs” by Henry Carroll. The book is ideal for users of DSLR, Compact System and Bridge Cameras. The book is packed with practical techniques that will instantly transform your pictures.
No scary graphs. No techie diagrams. No camera-club jargon. It walks you through the fundamentals of composition, exposure, light, lenses and the all-important art of seeing without drowning you in techno babble.
