I recently had the opportunity to attend an online workshop about running a photography business. It was given by famous (at least within the wedding photography industry) photographers Zach and Jody Gray. They are excellent photographers and maybe even better at educating, teaching and inspiring other photographers. The workshop was made possible by CreativeLive, which is an incredible resource for education in various creative fields.
In January, Zach and Jody did a workshop all about shooting weddings. It was an in-depth, 3-day training on all the ins and outs of wedding photography. Today's workshop was a follow-up workshop focusing on the process they have developed for handling all of the work once the wedding is over. Post-production and editing is a huge issue for photographers, especially wedding photogs, as we may shoot thousands of photos on the big day. It could be a very time-consuming part of one's business, taking up to 15-25 hours for each wedding! Well, Zach and Jody has slashed that down considerably - down to a mere 3-5 hours! That got my attention!
As I think back to the workshop, what really comes to mind is that they were disciplined in structuring their lives and their business to be the most productive, happy and profitable possible. Here are a few ways they do that:
