Why? Because they take all the client facing tools you use (invoices, contracts, scheduling, emails) and put them into one neat little dashboard.

Seriously. There is a wealth of possibility to automate so many obnoxious tasks between platforms and apps today that we have no excuse to be manually doing them, taking up time and energy that could be spent enjoying life or doing needle moving tasks.

So you’ve been dabbling in photography. You’re the GO TO friend to snap photos at picnics. You’re considering trying it professionally or as a serious hobby but you have no clue where to start.
This may be an unpopular opinion, but I truly do not believe that you need any formal photography education to become a photographer. It is truly an art and a skill that you can develop with practice and dedication.
Starting an actual business is a whole other story, and can be as easy or as difficult as you decide to make it.
Photograph anything and everything (in manual) as much as possible. Know that everyone starts somewhere, and Google is your best friend.
