NY Photographers Insurance: Time Management Tips for PhotographersNY Photographers Insurance: Time Management Tips for Photographers

If you are a photographer, you understand that you don’t have a typical 9-5 job. Your schedule is typically dictated by the subjects or by Mother Nature in the case of outdoor photos. This can make time management tricky, especially as you approach the holidays. So, how do you find a work-life balance? Here are some time management tips for photographers from the owner of Patch 36 Photography Jenna Stoller.

Set Business Hours. Share these hours on your website and with current clients. Having set hourly boundaries in place will help you in your business as well as your personal life. Be sure also to define when the best time to reach you is, and if possible, have a business phone line.

Decide What You Can Handle and Stick With It. In any business, if you are trying to do too many things, chances are you won’t excel at any of them. Decide what your schedule will look like, and physically mark off the days that you decide not to schedule clients.

Stay Organized. Write down everything that needs to be done, even if it seems miniscule. It is easy to get overwhelmed and bogged down with work during this time of year. Prioritize what needs to be done first, or begin with what you dread doing the most. Find a system that works for you.

Specialize. You may find that when it comes to the holidays, you have multiple requests and you have a hard time deciding who to turn down. One potential solution to this issue is finding a specialization and sticking to it. Maybe you enjoy shooting pictures of families, or perhaps babies. If you find this limits you, consider raising your prices to make up for the loss.

Following these time management tips should help you stay focused this season and throughout the year. At A.J. Benet we understand the importance of a comprehensive Business Insurance policy.
