Selling some landscape pictures on the side? Or maybe you’re a weekend wedding warrior, shooting portraits and nuptials on the days off? Or you’re picking up some side jobs from local companies?
Do you need a business license to be legal? What happens if you get audited? Do you need a license in your city? Your county? What about filing with your state?
John Harrington is the go-to man in understanding and learning the business of photography. In addition to John’s incredibly informative blog with great tips, suggestions and eye-opening revelations about how to be better at your business side, John has also published the “Best Business Practices for Photographers” book that should be on EVERY PHOTOGRAPHER’S BOOKSHELF.

We don’t get kick-back’s from John for book sales. We just want to educate you with the business know-how to be competitive and profitable. Buy the book. It’s only $19.95.
