Whilst technical skills are fun to acquire, when you make the move from amateur to Pro and start charging for those skills, the hard work really begins.

Suddenly you need to get to grips with sales and marketing, finding clients, blogging, SEO, Social Media, accountancy, website building.  You might begin to wonder where you’ll find the time to shoot and edit.

That’s where BANPAS Business Club for Photographers steps in to help – we can show you simple ways to market and manage your business.  Our subscribers enjoy the support of our active community.  Chances are, the problem you are having has already been solved a dozen times over in our online Forum.  Subscribers can also access exclusive discounts,  enter our Monthly Image Contest and have a free listing in our online Directory.

 There are so many really useful free downloads on the BANPAS site, things you might never have thought you needed - but once you've discovered them, they are invaluable! | Georgina Edwards, Georgina Edwards Photography

 The posing cards download stay permanently on my phone ready to access when I'm drawing a blank at my newborn photoshoots! The fact that these are free and explain how to achieve the pose safely is an amazing resource! I purchased some elsewhere before becoming a member at BANPAS and they were no-where near as useful nor did they take safety into consideration! | Vicki Newman, Photographvie

I love the option to add my studio to the BANPAS websites. The directory is so easy to navigate and the layout is great. I think it’s a great way for clients to find the right photographer for them too, and if I don’t offer a particular session (such as maternity), then Find the Best Photographer is the first place I will send them!

Having a listing on the BANPAS directory is an amazing resource that pays for the membership in itself! I've shared this link with friends, blogged about the directory and from an SEO perspective how fantastic that you can drop all your keywords into your ad then link back to it from your own website! A great tool that's easy to use, easy to update and a fab resource!

I love being able to list my website on the directory. The listing options are so versatile so I have been able to make my listing look exactly as I want it while being able to share a lot of photos. However my favourite feature is that I can select exactly which services I offer which are then displayed as little icons, this makes it so much easier for perspective clients to see exactly what they can get from me | Hayley Cattell, Hayley Cattell Photography

It’s great to have my business listed on both sites as the more places my website and information is listed the better the chances are of someone finding me. It also works both ways as I also have a link to BANPAS websites from my own one too. Great to bounce off each other’s sites!

 It's such a great opportunity to be listed on the directory website, as it allows parents to have a browse and feel confident that we're official photographers who take our business seriously by being a member. As a mum-to-be myself, when searching for a photographer I'd definitely choose a BANPAS member over someone else who wasn't, it shows the photographer is committed in their field so I think it helps reassure parents.

Training is the best thing about being a subscriber, the amount of information we're given through each monthly content is worth the member fee ten times over. The courses are priceless and each and every one has been beneficial to my business. Even when it's a subject I feel I'm okay with, and don't necessarily need help with, I learn something new each time!

 I am a very happy member of BANPAS. I think Helen and Emma do a fantastic job and I find the Facebook group very friendly and supportive. The information in both the hub and the Facebook group are invaluable when it comes to both business and photography related things and well worth the membership fee. I would highly recommend BANPAS and have done on more than one occasion.
