This Photography Business Plan Template is the perfect starting point for those looking to get their photography businesses up and running. I have taken the recommended articles from the US Small Business Association, simplified it, and made it specifically tailored to photographers.
It is laid out specifically for the small photography businesses, not the general and larger businesses. This template for photographers takes the guesswork out of the confusing business terminology, and it lays everything out for you in a short, concise, and simple way. Basically, this plan is easy to read and understand, even for the beginner photographer!
It is set-up in Microsoft Word as a Protected Form. All of the fields that you need to fill in have descriptions right there where you need them. No need to reference them somewhere else!
And, the fields are described based on the photography business/industry, not as a general business. You have the ability to unprotect the document and change elements that are not in the fields, so if you feel comfortable working with the template that way, feel free!
I do recommend making a 2nd copy as soon as you download it, just in case you lose the instructions while entering your information in the fields. There is a cover page, table of contents, and a separate page for each article.
