Today’s episode was inspired by a list of questions from a photographer who is thinking about starting her own associate wedding photographer program. Melissa, props to you for doing your research and asking questions before starting a program yourself. I hope this episode is helpful to you!
A Few Questions From Today’s Show:
- How do you find the right person to be your associate photographer?
- How do you advertise associate photographers?
- How do you manage associate photographers (client meetings, payments, etc.)?
- Do you provide assistants and second photographers, or does your associate provide them?
- Who edits the weddings and sessions?
- How do you handle branding if your associate has a business of his or her own?
- How do you handle liability with associate photographers?
