Managing client expectations is one of the hardest parts of having a creative business. We photographers and other creatives struggle with this aspect, and on this podcast I touch on 3 big points that can help you manage client expectations better.

Episode 39: Machines Taking Over Photography Jobs?
Couple bad words in this one! Machines are popping up in the market that geared at E-commerce websites to replace their in-house​ photographer. While this is a great concept, it cannot and will not replace the real photographer. I've given you 5 ways to beat the machine and go from considering it a threat to a benefit because it'll take away all the low paying jobs you did not want in the first place! howtophotograph.net/photography-ebooks Join by Private Facebook Group here: www.facebook.com/groups/129178604367978/ Subscribe on Youtube for tons of awesome footage www.youtube.com/WalidAzamiTV Join my mailing list howtophotograph.net/subscribe-photograph-guide/ Join us on www.Instagram.com/HowtoPhotograph
