In the latest issue of Digital Photographer magazine Barrett & Coe course tutor Elaine Sheppard is featured in “Start your own studio”. Find out what it takes to start your own photographic studio from marketing to the essential skills you need.

elaine-sheppardBelow are extracts of Elaine’s advice:

1. Don’t consider opening a studio business if you only enjoy taking pictures – 80 percent of your business will be about sales and marketing
2. Ensure you have a robust business and marketing plan in place from the start, with the right level of investment, working capital and marketing budget to hand
3. Be prepared to be available when your target clients are available.
