Cost Control for Photographers - Part 1

'Cost Control for Photographers' is a two-part PDF download, designed to help photographers understand, track and control the costs in their business. Many photographers treat photography like a hobby, but expect it to be a profitable business. Cost control doesn't need to be daunting, and it's not about being mean. Instead it's about being smart to help create maximum profitability in your business.

Accompanying the PDF document is a downloadable Microsoft Excel template, to track income and expense transactions, and produce monthly summary reports. Part 1 of 'Cost Control for Photographers' covers the following topics over 17 pages:

  • Why you need to control costs
  • How to track your costs
  • The difference between fixed and variable costs
  • How to analyse your costs
  • Practical tips for controlling product cost, equipment costs, marketing spend, and the cost of software, websites and online subscriptions.

Testimonials from Professional Photographers

It's very clear and wonderfully presented. I love the repetition when it comes to explaining fixed and variable expenses. By separating the fixed and variable costs I now have a better idea of what my running costs are which is really helpful. The spreadsheet is great and makes me want to go and sort my accounts now, it's will be exciting to see my business laid out like this finally! This is exactly what I have wanted to create but didn't know how!
