Assist to Learn the Intangibles

[by Jay Kinghorn]

Congratulations, you’ve just graduated from a prestigious photo school with a spectacular portfolio and you’re ready to change the world. As you start your career as a professional, I strongly encourage you to assist another photographer to learn the ropes of running a profitable photography business.

While assisting, watch and listen to the way your photographer interacts with clients, manages jobs and handles problems. These intangibles are often the difference between a good photographer with a busy, profitable studio and a great photographer with a stellar portfolio but no clients because they don’t understand the “soft skills” necessary for success.
