. Set Up Your Website

Setting up my photography website was like taking a panoramic shot with a broken camera – it took some patience and a lot of clicking, but the end result was worth it.

So trust me, setting up your own website for your photography business is worth the headache. Don’t rely on social media to showcase your talents – make your own virtual studio and watch your brand grow!

b. Get Your Camera Gear and Accessories

Buying camera gear and accessories is like falling down a rabbit hole – you start with one lens, and suddenly you’re knee-deep in a sea of filters, tripods, and who knows what else!

c. Software to Make Your Editing Easier

Photoshop and Lightroom are like my right and left hand, except they’re way more talented at fixing my mistakes and making my photos look good.
