How to improve the business side of photography business?

6 years 9 months ago #347779 by Melissa Zui
I have to be honest, I don't have a business degree and have been winging it with my photography business.  I understand photography but feel from a business stand point, I have much to learn.  This might be a odd request, but is there a good book, or DVD that talks about A-Z business tips for photographers?  

I really do appreciate your help in advance.  Thank you

I just got the book called "Photography Business Secrets" and it's very good.  I have only read 43 pages so far, but it's good.

Have you looked at ASMP's site? I've used resources from their site, and bought a book I found thru them (but am drawing a blank on the title) - it has chapters by different authors on various business aspects, maybe it would still be listed there.

They have a number of different tutorials too, on copyright, licensing, contracts, releases, and all that sort of fun (not so much but necessary) stuff.
