Making Your Photography Career Fit Your Changing Lifestyle

Featuring Bud Johnson

Bud Johnson has photographed weddings in Europe, Iceland, and all over the US. In the beginning of his career, the Savannah, Georgia-based photographer used to travel constantly for work. But a lot has changed over the last ten years of the photographer’s career. 

Bud now has a wife and four young children at home, so he’s less excited about jet setting these days. When Bud decided he didn’t want to travel as much, he picked up and moved his family to Savannah, a known hub for weddings.

Know Your Worth and Charge Accordingly

Featuring Catherine Hall

When Catherine Hall was just starting out as a professional photographer, she had the intention of living a life free from debt. The Wedding, Portrait, and Commercial photographer graduated at the top of her class at California Polytechnic and furthered her education in art at Oxford University. She knew the value of keeping her costs low while also building her new business. 

“I started off living and working in a tiny apartment in New York. The room was so small that you couldn’t even open the door without hitting the bed.”

Featuring Nik Pekridis

Catherine Taylor Woodland Fields Photography

Featuring Catherine Taylor of Woodland Fields Photography

Wouldn’t it be great to have a little voice in your head? An all-knowing being that could change the direction of your life with a single question? What if a query posed at exactly the right time set in motion a chain of events that would forever change you? It sounds too good to be true, right? You’re not alone. Catherine Taylor’s husband was just as skeptical when she burst through their front door ten years ago and told him she was going to be a professional photographer.

“Don’t quit your day job,” he quipped.

Are You Getting the Most Out of Your Time as a Wedding Photographer?

Getting The Most Out of Your Time Wedding Photographer ShootDotEdit

Time… You can’t fight it—there are only 24 hours in every day! 

Time is fleeting and time matters. It’s not just something you can get back… Once it’s gone, it’s gone.

What decisions have you been putting off making in your business because you simply just don’t have the time?

And what if you could get that time back? What would you do with even just one extra hour each day? 

Would you spend it with your family? Or perhaps you’d go to the gym—maybe even get in some much-needed self-care… 

You could catch up on sleep, cuddle with your kiddo—the world really opens up when you’re not constantly getting buried by your work!
