Find: Biz Guide by Jonathan Canlas

Owning a photography business is hard work. That's why the early years of my business were a train wreck. I struggled to make money, clawing at any work I could find to feed my kids and to avoid going back to schlepping wellness products for a living. I was completely exhausted, the bank account always seemed to be empty, I never saw my family, and I once shot six weddings in multiple states in six days. It's only after more than a decade of owning a photography business that I can say I know what I'm doing.
