After 3 years, the second model of Best Business Practices for Photographers is currently out. Over 10,000 copies of “BBP1” have been sold, through multiple printings, and the written book has continued to be a multiple-category best-seller on Amazon for three years. All I can say, is “thank you” to the readers! So, what’s new in this edition, and what do those people who have had an progress look at it have to state about it? As to sheer volume, the previous book was 352 pages, which one weighs about over 500 webpages, and jumps from 26 chapters to 32 chapters. That said, a quality publication will not survive on volume only. What’s actually been added/updated?
In BBP1, this subject matter was attended to in only over an individual page. Due to the significant changes that so many staff photographers have been put through, this subject spans an entire chapter. Of the utmost importance here, for you current staffers and non-staffers is information about how to aid the new-found freelancer entering into the city in an optimistic way.
In BBP1, the main topic of dealing with others was about assistants and contractors just. In BBP2, we expand the chapter to add working with talent that may help you shape your marketing efforts, handle your negotiations, prepare your bids/estimates, and make your life easier throughout usually. John Harrington’s revised edition of his Best Business Practices for Photographers goes beyond a few timely updates. Using his own business experiences John has altered his business practices to the changing picture taking industry. Addressing topics such as “Pricing your work to stay in business”, the first hand – “Insights into am IRS audit”, and the well-timed “transitioning to Freelance”, for the paper staffers getting into the self-employed business community.
Pricing, contracts, copyright — even IRS audits: If you are heading to walk through the minefield that is the business to be a professional photographer, you will want a good map. It is longer enough to be always a creative professional photographer no. The tough part is navigating through business deals and complicated contracts. John Harrington’s publication will help readers to run a small business as the age of the digital technology reshapes the craft of photography at every level.

When I used to be in photo school I often asked for resources about how to run a photo business. Wish this reserve then was available to me. This is actually the best, one source for understanding the business of photography. From basics of bookkeeping to the open ended practice of pricing, this written publication provides many answers.
For me the best updated information in John Harrington’s new edition of “Best Business Practices for Photographers” is in the area of licensing and how licensing needs to become a part of your fee structure. The inclusion of PLUS, Picture Licensing Universal System, in your licensing and business models is the best advice John has for the professional professional photographer.
