#59 Antonina Mamzenko: On running a documentary family photography business

November 13, 2019

Welcome to episode 59 of Shoot Edit Chat Repeat, the podcast for people photographers. Hosted by two leading UK portrait photographers, Vicki Knights & Eddie Judd.

In our Backchat feature we are answering a question all about how to get through the busy season without burning out.

This week we are chatting to documentary family photographer, Antonina Mamzenko.

Here are some of the topics we talk through….

– Why Antonina moved from lifestyle photography to a more documentary style

– How she finds the kind of clients who value this style of photography

– How her ‘day in the life’ sessions work

– Why she reverted from an all-in pricing model to session fee with products on top

– Her thoughts on online galleries vs in person sales

And lots more!
