This 24,000 word guide is designed to get you shooting film easily and quickly – and then helps you to adjust your business model and marketing to ensure that not only are your film costs fully covered, but your profits increase.
The likelihood is:
* You have noticed the increase of film photographers lately, you appreciate that film photography is beautiful, and you are curious about it
* You think film photography is probably currently too expensive for you to consider offering to your clients right now
* Film photography seems a little bit overwhelming.
* You are prepared to try just about anything to ensure that your photography business grows and succeeds
* You are consistently asked by clients to offer a discount, whether you can offer them a cheaper package, split your packages OR you have been left hanging by a client who has opted for another (cheaper) photographer
* It seems to be getting harder to promote your business
* You’ve noticed how everyone lately seems to own a good digital camera, or is becoming a photographer
*You just want to Learn Film Photography and how to shoot Film
Remember I said no gimmicks? The following is the God’s honest truth about how my business has changed over the last 18 months since shooting film:
*My top package prices have increased by 1,733%
*I have secured destination weddings at my highest package price that include all hotels and travel; thus securing my dream of travelling the world, and getting paid to do so.
*I was fully booked up to two years in advance for my wedding packages
*My most recent wedding booking was priced at £4,500, with my highest package price at £6,400
*I gain print sales from roughly half of my clients
*I was a scholarship winner for The Editorial Wedding Workshop
My work has been featured in:
*Magnolia Rouge Magazine * Style Me Pretty * Inspired By This! * b.loved * Under The Vintage Veil * Festival Brides * Elizabeth Ann Designs * Mrs Plans & Presents * Wed In London * Southbound Bride * French Wedding Style + more.
* All whilst working just 2 hours a day (usually less) with no working at weekends (except for on my other projects). I show you exactly how I did it, and how you can do it too.
This guide is most likely NOT for you if:
*You are well established in film photography
*You are already marketing to, and gaining, high-budget client bookings, and have a full diary
(If this is you, check out book II – Film- The Luxury Advantage)
The books that already exist out there on how to learn film photography, like that written by Jose Villa and Elizabeth Messina, are beautiful, but when I started out shooting film I really struggled to find anything that was particularly accessible to me as a beginner.
I loved their books but I couldn’t believe that shooting weddings on film was as easy as buying a roll of fuji 400h and a Contax 645 and shooting in late afternoon sunlight. It isn’t that simple- but it isn’t difficult either.
This guide will tell you, in addition to the above
* Common mistakes – and how to avoid them
* How to actually begin shooting film for clients
* Common questions you will get asked by clients used to digital shooters- and what to reply to keep their business
* How to raise your prices and when
* Why shooting film will not cost you anything
* How to find clients when everyone else is losing them
* Your number one secret weapon as a film photographer – and how to use it
* Top tips on branding, marketing, website design – for the film photographer
* Why you are holding back your profits, and how to prevent it.
* Why you can’t afford NOT to shoot film. * Why shooting film will save your photography business
