#49 Helen Bartlett: On running a successful child photography business

June 4, 2019

Welcome to episode 49 of Shoot Edit Chat Repeat, the podcast for people photographers. Hosted by two leading UK portrait photographers, Vicki Knights & Eddie Judd.

This week we are chatting with UK child and family photographer & Canon ambassador, Helen Bartlett.

Helen has run her business for 15 years and we wanted to pick her brains to find out she does this so successfully.

We talk about the following:

– Why Helen decided to only shoot black and white timeless images right from the start of her business

– Advice to photographers who are struggling to find their own style
– What equipment Helen takes on a typical family shoot

– How Helen’s family shoots flow

– How Helen attracts new clients

– How in person sales works for her business

– How the photography industry has changed and predictions for the future

-Helen’s advice to photographers just starting out

– Why one of Helen’s clients once described her as an over-excited geography student!

Helen was a brilliant guest and we know you’re going to get so much from this chat.
