Commercial photography comes with its own set of rules, idiosyncrasies and techniques. Many times, these are not the same as they are in portrait and wedding photography. This webinar will take you through some of the "rules," techniques and pricing procedures of commercial photography for table-top products, food and architecture along with editorial ad-copy. The world of commercial photography is a very lucrative and volatile market. Before you venture out in to this field you will need to be prepared, and this webinar will help you get started.
In this 1-hour online course you will learn the questions to ask a prospective client to help you not only be prepared but also be able to price the job accordingly.
