  1. This is a great course. I really like Erik's style and energetic approach. If I was a prospective client I'd want to work with this guy. The course is short but very insightful. He covers practical ideas to help you better operate your photography business. ASMP, contracts, client negotiations, fees, and more that you can easily take advantage of to help you be a better business person. A condensed photographers survival guide. Just need to bottle and sell his enthusiasm. Thanks!

  2. Thanks for this! It was very interesting to see how a young photographer starts out, he has come a long way in a short time. I enjoy the series very much, thanks! I would recommend it to anyone starting out.
