Several Different Ways to Make Money as a Photographer

There are several different ways to make money as a photographer, and the more you can diversify your income streams, the more you can ensure financial security. If you are working on improving your photography business, check out this helpful video tutorial that shows you several different ways you can use your photography business to make money. 

Coming to you from Scott Choucino of Tin House Studio, this useful video tutorial discusses some of the many different ways you can make money with your photography. It can be easy to think that client jobs are the only lucrative way, but photography can be a surprisingly diverse field. Of course, client jobs are likely the most obvious and direct route, but relying on any single stream can be a bit dangerous. Depending on the genre you work in, you can sell prints, rent out your studio space for use by other photographers or for events, run workshops and educational events, and engage in a variety of other things. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Choucino.
