Since Shauna, Paul, and I launched Project Prescription there has been a ton of buzz building about how valuable it is for photographers in helping them learn how to build successful client relationships – and one of the most important aspects of what we teach is how to vet your clients (and why it’s not just ok to say no to a job, but sometimes necessary to save your sanity and business).
Over the past few years I’ve been honored to be an occasional contributor to the blog of living legend/photo god Scott Kelby – and last week I was able to share my latest piece, which features a lot of wonderful tips from Project Prescription about vetting clients, learning what factors to consider when deciding who to work with, and what kinds of red flags you met look out for. Learning how to vet your clients is an incredibly important but often overlooks skill for many emerging photographers to learn.
Scott and his crew always go above and beyond to bring the best information and educational opportunities to the photographic community and I’m thrilled that they have featured a number of my articles on the business side of art. Check it out here.
