Expanding my business knowledge

I strive to learn something new every day, and some days I am blessed with learning a whole lot of new things. Such was the case on April 16, when I attended the Northern Virginia Professional Photographers Association‘s monthly meeting.

Our guest speaker for April was Rachel Benke, who has an amazing background as a professional photographer with an MBA and a degree in law that she has combined into TheLawTog (a valuable business resource for photographers). Her NVPPA presentation focused on strong foundation of a photography business – “Pricing.”

I found out just how little I knew about the business side of photography, and it could not have come at a better time for me as I am in the foundation stages of my business. I look forward to exploring further the information that she provided and putting it to good use in moving forward with developing WALL Photography & Design.

Since becoming a member of PPA and NVPPA, I feel that I have grown so much and I look forward to continued growth through my participation in these organizations.

I strongly encourage any photographer in the Northern Virginia area, who is looking to grow, consider joining NVPPA. Anyone interested in finding out more about the group should contact the group president Philip Brasch.
