We have all heard the stories of photography studio disasters; you know, the ones that make you cringe with dread. Oftentimes, many of the disasters that sink a studio aren't considered in advance, which is why Design Aglow has assembled a dream team of industry advisors to prevent the unthinkable. In truth, almost all client and business miscommunications can easily be avoided with the simple preliminary measure of instituting strong policies. With a little foresight, you can ensure business success before you even interact with a client.

The Essential Portrait Studio Policies for Success serves as a comprehensive guide to ensure the highest level of success for wedding and portrait photographers. This handbook is a list of effective policies designed to provide you with guidance and advice, compiled from our experience consulting with hundreds of photographers just like you. We’ve created what we feel are the most crucial policies in portrait photography, all built to minimize wasted time, maximize your sales, and reaffirm your love for the craft. In these pages, you’ll discover not only why each policy is important to your success but also how they impact your business’s bottom line. Its text is available to use in whole or in part; copy and paste these responses into emails and printed/online studio policies, or modify them to suit your own needs and your own business.

Learn procedures for challenges like strategizing session fees, methods for heading off cancellations and tardiness, how to handle retouching requests, and what the best in the business are doing to sell digital files. 21 key topics provide essential procedural information for before, during, and after the portrait session.
