Photography: Both Business and Fun

Becoming a photographer can feel like fulfilling a dream. As a photographer, you get to snap incredible scenes and help people capture memories that will last a lifetime. That said, being a photographer takes a lot of work, and that’s just to get the right shot! If you own your own photography business or freelance, you may find yourself spending less time taking photos and more time filing paperwork, sending invoices, and scheduling appointments. You probably didn’t become a photographer to sit in the office all day. If work is getting in the way of…well, work, it may be time to consider a virtual assistant for photographers.
