Usually when the people around you find out that you are an avid photographer, you start receiving requests to do the odd shoot here and there. To begin with this is very exciting as it is a great opportunity to practice and grow as a photographer.
At some point though, you realise that you should be charging for these shoots and that you could be making a great supplementary income from your photography. You may have even gone beyond this point where you have left your day job to go into photography full time, but are still unsure on how to go about setting up your business, marketing yourself and creating your own brand. This course is presented on one evening or morning a week over three consecutive weeks.
