About This Class
Too many courses focus on the technical side of video and photography. It is important, but just one aspect of running a video and photography company. I've learned the hard way that taking a great video or a great photo doesn't mean automatic success. You have to develop skills that often aren't taught in video and photography classes things like:
Getting assembling gear kits – Camera, lenses, and accessories – Introduce some camera's and gear that you can use to assemble your first kit
Getting a logo – A logo is important for your brand and is one of the pillars for your marketing on-line and offline
Getting a website - If you're serious about showcasing your work and services you are going to need a website to showcase your presence on-line. This lecture will introduce you to the technology I use, where I host, and how I manage the website.
Developing a portfolio - When you are starting out you are going to invest time producing great videos and photo's to showcase to future clients. How do you get started and how do you go about it
Investing in yourself – video and photo skills - Resources and tip to develop your video skills and education to a professional level
Social media – Facebook, Pininterest, Youtube
Getting your first sales
Game day – preparation & shotlist
This course is designed to fill the gap and arm you with the information and skills you need to start running your video and photography company. I've structured the course so it is logical beginning with the basics and progressing to skills you'll need to learn as you get customers and deliver your products to them. I also introduce a different business model for earning an income with your videos for those that are not comfortable with networking and meeting new people.
I've created this course because I've been through the struggles to figure out how to run a video business and want to pass on what I learned. My hope is by taking this course you can save a lot of the time, money, and effort it took me to figure out what I've learned so far.
