This workshop, led by Guild Director Steven Thirsk, is designed to give you both the knowledge and the confidence to become much more successful at dealing with the business side of photography - please note that the skills taught are transferable to all genres. SO if you want to learn about creating realistic business plans, how to set your pricing, also marketing and selling...this is the course for YOU!

Steve is stepping out from behind his desk and doesn't really need an introduction... but, just for your notice in case you are not aware - he was responsible for the marketing of a wedding business which started with 6 bookings but grew to 45 bookings in just 12 months!! He was responsible for creating and developing 'The Staffordshire Wedding Show' which became the largest event of it's type in this region. He was also the UK agent for an Italian Wedding Album company, and in his previous career was praised by the Home Office for his simple but innovative 'out of the box' approaches.

With 10 years of experience as a Director of the Guild helping and advising many businesses, he has seen what leads to success and what doesn't - so, in short, this should be a very informative and insightful day!

All you need to bring with you is something to take notes on - a laptop or tablet would be ideal as Steve may ask you to view certain links as well.

"I attended your business training day in April, since then I have been working on making changes to the way I operate at every level.

I am now seeing results, great results!
