While the focus of my wedding photography educational material has largely been on helping you go full-time, in this podcast episode I’m going to talk about how to successfully balance a conventional job while trying to do wedding photography part-time.
A large percentage of my listeners are working full-time jobs while trying to get their part-time wedding photography business up and running.
Perhaps you want the security of a conventional job to pay the bills and save for the future but like the idea of being able to shoot 5, 10 or 15 weddings throughout the year with the bonus of that added income.
I’ll share with you some of my tips for balancing a conventional job and a wedding photography business, including being efficient in the way you work to ensure you’re as productive as possible.
With so much on your plate, you might have to adjust your expectations and be extra conscientious of how you are spending your time outside of work or make sacrifices in other areas of your life.
Some marketing strategies just aren’t going to work if you’re limited on time, so we’ll talk about how you can get your name out there without having to invest all your waking hours in marketing your wedding photography business.
Outsourcing work that is time-intensive or paying for advertising is both useful ways to maintain a work-life balance when juggling two careers.
While working a full-time conventional job and trying to build a part-time wedding photography business isn’t easy, it can be done. It just requires dedication, efficiency, and realistic expectations about what you can handle.
