My lowest price package is $150 for homes up to 2000 sqft, but my average appointment is closer to $230. That being said, doing just 2 appointments a day will yield an annual income around $100k after expenses.

What kind of income do most photographers expect/desire to make? In my opinion, there is a huge opportunity to make significant income in this business if you are able to build a healthy client base. I average 5 properties a day and also shoot on the weekend if necessary.

It took me about 3 years to build this client base, but building relationships take time. To me this is a great field to be in for a few reasons.

The startup cost is relatively low, there is no need for a 4 year degree, you can earn while you learn and you have a lot of flexibility with your schedule.

This has been a great fit for me and I do not see a lot of other opportunities with these kinds of benefits.
