TESTIMONIALS

Carina T.

An amazing resource chock full of very valuable information! If you’re considering entering the commercial market, you won’t find another guide that has anything close to what Jamie has so generously shared.

Jo L.

This bundle is absolutely amazing! There is so much information provided so I’m now setting the task to get through it all and start approaching businesses I know I can help, but ensure I get paid appropriately. 

Cathy P.

I’ve spent hours online trying to find the information I needed, some information I found – a lot I didn’t – and Jamie has put together a concise, easy-to-read and comprehensive guide to selling your work in the commercial world. If you are contemplating seeing your photographs in the commercial world, run to buy this guide!

Suzanne S. 

This is a massive amount of information to digest. This is worth way more than the $299 price tag attached to it. 

PREFER TO START SMALL?

If the thought of working with a big advertising agency intimidates you, but you still want to get started with commercial photography, start small.  The 56-page Commercial Photography for Small Businesses Guide will show you how to work for small and medium-sized local businesses, from pitching and pricing, to crafting images with commercial appeal and getting referrals to other local businesses. (This guide can also be purchased separately in the Commercial Photography for Small Businesses Bundle.)

Commercial Photography for Small Businesses guide table of contents by CPR: Commercial Photographer's Resources

With the Commercial Photography for Small Businesses guide you can start adding additional revenue to your business right away, without having to wait for the ‘big clients’.

IMPORTANT NOTES

1) The guides and documents are designed for skilled and established professional photographers of any genre who are new (or newish) to commercial photography. They were created with the assumption that the photographer already has an established business and is looking to add commercial photography to their services.

2) The guide & documents are heavy on the business side of traditional commercial advertising photography, which is working for an agency (ad agency, design firm, marketing firm), who is representing a brand that is the agency’s client.

3) The Big Guide to Commercial Photography does not include any of the following:

  • information on photography, lighting, editing or retouching how-to’s (‘how to take pictures’, ‘how to use lighting’, ‘how to edit photos’, etc)
  • information on editorial/magazine photography
  • information on selling images as stock through stock agencies (with the exception of pricing usage licenses)
  • information on working as an hourly or salaried employee photographer for a company
  • information on ‘influencer’ photography (e.g. selling space and photography on your social media accounts)

4) Client information is redacted from all bids and sample treatment.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Because this is the only guide to commercial photography of it’s kind that exists, and because of the comprehensive nature of it’s contents, we imagine you have questions.

We’ve answered some of the most frequently asked questions here, but if you have any additional questions please feel free to reach out to the author Jamie Piper and she’ll be happy to provide whatever additional information you need to make a decision about whether the product is right for your needs.

Who is this for?

The guides and documents are designed for established professional photographers of any genre who are new (or newish) to commercial photography. They were created with the assumption that the photographer already has an established business and is looking to add commercial photography to their services, but has limited (or no) commercial experience.

The guides and documents will benefit new photographers too, but all of the guide content assumes that the reader’s photography and editing skills are advanced enough to be prepared for commercial assignments, and that they already have a professional website and processes set up for working with clients. (Invoicing, emails, etc).

When was this published?

2018.

Can I buy any of the guides, documents, contracts, releases or forms separately?

Yes! We also have the following smaller ‘mini bundles’, that contain most of the information that’s in the ‘Big Bundle’, broken down into smaller packages:

  1. Commercial Photography Pricing Bundle
  2. Commercial Photography Marketing Bundle
  3. Commercial Photography for Small Businesses Bundle
  4. Commercial Photography Contracts & Releases Bundle
  5. Commercial Animal Photography Bundle

Can I buy the 356-page Big Guide separately?

Unfortunately, no. The Big Guide to Commercial Photography cross-references all of the other elements in the bundle. The Big Guide and all elements of the bundle were all designed to function as a set. Plus, if you need the information in the Big Guide, you definitely need all of the other elements that are included.

Who wrote the guide?

Jamie Piper, a commercial animal photographer and author of Beautiful Beasties, a Creative Guide to Modern Pet Photography. Although the focus of Jamie’s 17-year photography career has always been animals, her commercial photograph experience and education translates to any photography genre. It’s all the same except for the models in front of the camera.

Can I print the 356-page big guide?

Certainly. You may print one low-resolution (150dpi) copy for your personal use. (You may also print copies of some of the other guides. Please see the Terms of Use document included in the bundle to learn which guides and documents you can print).

Can I use some of the documents in my business?

Yes. The model releases, call sheet, change order form, estimate / bid terms & conditions and first-time clients guide were designed for you to use in the course of your business in a client-facing capacity.

Is follow-up support and consulting included in the price?

Personalized one-on-one consultation isn’t included in the bundle, although hourly consulting is available from author Jamie Piper for an additional fee, and she’d be happy to help you with things like portfolio review, website development/design, marketing strategies, etc.

You can also get feedback and support in The Business of Commercial Photography Facebook group, a group Jamie created to support both the buyers of her guides and new commercial photographers in general.

The guides are also loaded with links to additional (free) resources for commercial photography that you should find very helpful.

What if I change my mind after I download everything? Can I get a refund?

Sorry, no. Refunds won’t be granted for any reason after the product has been purchased. We feel that we’ve provided more than enough information about the product on this page in order for you to make an informed decision, but if you still have questions before purchasing, please reach out to us.

10 reviews for The Big Commercial Photography Bundle

I just received this a few days ago….and let me say it is a massive amount of information to digest. Jamie has done a lot of work for us, that otherwise is almost impossible to find ( and I have tried to find it). This is worth way more than the price tag attached to it. I have not met another photographer who is so forthright and open with the knowledge that she had to work so hard to obtain. She has given us the tools, we just need to use them! Thank you Jamie! I can not wait to get all the way through the mountain of information!
Suzanne – S. Sylvester Photography

Wow! Just Wow! so much information on commercial photography that cannot be found elsewhere. Commercial photography information is hard to wrap your brain around and Jamie has put it all into a simple way to understand. I do not have to scour the internet anymore to find incomplete information.

She gives real life information, quotes and even how to get your models, assistants etc lined up. Worth the small price for amazing information. Thank you Jamie for putting all your hard work into this material!

So, I’ve been trying to find information on selling commercial photography for while. I recently sold an image to a greeting card company and I wish I had Jamie’s guide in my hands before I did it. I spent hours on-line trying to find the information I needed, some information I found – a lot I didn’t – and Jamie has put together a concise, easy-to-read and comprehensive guide to selling your work in the commercial world. She has put a wealth of information into these Guides. I’ve only got a small way through all of it and already had many of my questions answered. I’m excited to continue to read it and I’m sure get the rest of my questions answered. Jamie has always been very generous with her time and knowledge with other photographers and this product is no different. If you are contemplating seeing your photography in the commercial world, run to buy this bundle!

This bundle is absolutely amazing! I have so much to learn about commercial photography as I want to start working with other pet-related businesses but really had no idea on even where to start, so this guide is very valuable to me. There is so much information provided so I’m now setting the task to get through it all and start approaching businesses I know I can help, but ensure I get paid appropriately.

An amazing resource chock full of very valuable information! If you’re considering entering the commercial market, you won’t find another guide that has anything close to what Jamie has so generously shared.

If you’ve ever tried to put a commercial bid together, you know that you literally cannot find or buy this kind of information anywhere remotely near this price. The content and value that you get is mind-blowingly epic. To be completely honest, I would have gladly paid A LOT more for this content.

Jamie has created a very detailed guide for commercial photography. It has so much information that I never would have thought to consider! I’m so glad I ordered this bundle so that I can be prepared when the opportunity for a commercial shoot comes. I won’t have to spend hours searching the internet to find the info I need. I’ll be able to provide a professional looking bid in a timely response to the potential client. If you have any interest in jumping into commercial photography, this is for you.

This bundle is absolutely incredible! If you’re looking for a few generic tips and a 5-minute read, it’s NOT for you – but if you want real-life stories and advice from someone with tons of experience, then I highly recommend this guide! It shares the perfect mix of actionable strategies and specifics alongside the overarching general mindset that you need to have as a commercial photographer… I’m so glad I bought it and I think it’ll keep re-proving its value as I pick it up to refresh on various topics over the next several years. This info is golden!

I loved that Jamie takes the mysterious and confusing world of commercial photography and dissects it bit by bit. I walked away with a much better understanding of, not only the commercial animal photography industry, but of the worth of my work. I am able to intelligently talk with prospective clients about how I can help them with my images. Jamie’s course is one of the best investments I’ve made in my education.

I don’t usually leave reviews for products, but I had to for this one. Having gotten a handful of commercial inquiries over these last few years, it’s been a struggle figuring out how this industry works. That is, until I found a wonderful consultant to work with who charges $150/hour to help me with putting together estimates 😮 I’ve probably spent over $1000 on fees at this point, and although it has been well worth it, it definitely adds up! I ordered this, and while some information I already knew, there’s enough new material there to add a significant amount of value. I already know it’ll help save time/energy all around from figuring out other things, so I can focus it on doing more important stuff. For the price this is definitely a steal. Thanks so much, Jamie, for putting this together. Well worth the investment!
