About the Class

Managing people can feel a lot like herding cats—everyone doing their own thing, no one working as a team, and no one listening to YOU, the owner! In this class, PPA instructor Carrie Wildes shares how to grow your photography team in a way that makes sense for you and your business.

Here are just a few of the things you’ll explore:

  1. Should you grow your team? Your business is your baby; sharing the responsibilities, the risks and the reputation is not for everyone. Carrie helps you assess if you’re someone who wants to manage a team.
  2. Hiring the right people: It’s not as easy as it sounds. A great photographer or lighting expert may not make a great team member, so learn what and who to look for, per Carrie’s expert advice!
  3. Training: Even if you hired Ansel Adams, he would still need training on your individual business. Carrie gives you pearls of wisdom to ensure you’re investing the right stuff in the right people.

You’ll also discuss some difficult questions: Should you outsource business? How do you motivate employees? What rewards should you use? But never fear! Carrie answers the tough questions in an easy, conversational way that will help you see what’s right for you.
