In Praise of Solo Photography Business Entrepreneurship

We are often told that to get into photography as a business is a very bad idea. On the contrary, it is the industry the most ripe for disruption and innovation:

How to approach it

Don’t approach it the basic way. For example, the “plumber” model or the photo-technician model seems to be something of the past. To just shoot headshots, weddings and corporate — this is a dying field.

I say instead:

  1. Photography workshops or courses designed to optimize foe creativity, and artistic flourishing
  2. Consulting and branding advice for photography enthusiasts to better get their work out there.
  3. NFT (non fungible tokens via Ethereum) as a new photography economy.
  4. Create some new photo platform like arsbeta.com
  5. Accept cryptocurrency or Bitcoin for your photo services or products.

Own your future.

Life is too short not to attempt it. Just declare yourself solo, and single-mindedly pursue that passion. You may fail, but remember the saying:

Lady fortune favors the bold!
