Ideas for a Photography Business

Published on September 8, 2020

(Guest post)

Imagine owning a business in which you get to do the thing you love. Can you “picture” it? Wouldn’t it be great?

With that in mind, let’s talk about some photography business ideas* that just may work. 

*Actually, one idea.

A Truly Unique Business To Own

Franchise businesses that encourage creativity are few and far between. They’re definitely unique opportunities. And they tend to be geared towards doing things you love to do. Here it comes…


Do you love photography?

Is photography something you wish you could do more of because you enjoy it so much?

Is photography something you’re good at?

Do others tend to compliment you on your photographic ability?

 “You always take such amazing pictures!”

Where did you learn to take pictures like that?”

Can you show me how to take photos as good as you do?”

To sum things up, if you love photography, would like to do more of it and it’s something you’re good at it, check this out.


Photography Business Ideas: Own A Low-Investment, Low-Overhead Photography Franchise Business

Spoiled Rotten Photography offers you an opportunity to make money doing what you love. And as I stated before, there aren’t many franchise business opportunities that offer that.

For example, do you know anyone who owns a house-cleaning business and absolutely loves cleaning houses?

Similarly, what about the family that owns the big-name donut franchise down the street?

How much do you think they love waking up at 3:30 in the morning to head into their store to bake donuts-7 days a week?

Do you see what I mean?

Photography Is Big Business

It’s projected that photography services revenue in the U.S. will amount to approximately $5.8 million by the year 2023. That’s an impressive number.

With that said, I’d like to talk to you about a  photography business idea that’s quite special; children’s photography. But why?

Because parents, grandparents, and other family members want (and are more than willing to pay for) pictures that they can see and touch. In other words, they want memories. But there’s something else.

In Lauren Lim’s “54 Reasons Why You Should Be A Photographer,” she writes the following:

Whether they are your own, a friend’s, or a client’s, kids are an amazing photographic subject. They see the world differently, and often express a lot more love and emotion than adults. Being able to capture that is both a fantastic photographic challenge, and a profound learning experience.”

The upshot of all this?

Children’s photography, when done right, (under the proper conditions) is a sight to behold. And it’s also a win for the photographer.

The Spoiled Rotten Photography Franchise

If you’re interested in a photography business, you probably think you’ll need to have a fancy studio. And in my experience, “fancy” is another word for expensive.

To that end, I hope you won’t be disappointed by the fact that if you become the owner of a Spoiled Rotten Photography franchise business in your town, you won’t need to invest in a store-front studio, fancy or otherwise.

That’s because Spoiled Rotten Photography uses the home-based franchise model. It’s a huge money-saver which translates into more money for you. But how can you take amazing, high-quality photographs without a photography studio?

By bringing a professional studio setup to the high-end preschools that make up a good portion of your customer base.

In reality, your “studio” is portable, and it packs away in a mid-size SUV. That makes your operation quite efficient. Low-cost, too!

Lastly, I’ve only provided a snapshot of the Spoiled Rotten Photography franchise opportunity. There’s a lot more to tell you.

So what do you think?

Do you find the idea of a low-investment, low-overhead children’s photography business appealing?
