Two Different Approaches to Running Successful Photography Studios with FStoppers Lee Morris

Business Tips October 9th 2012 11:37 AM 3 Comments

When you hear the name Lee Morris, the photography website probably pops in your head. Indeed, the former graphic designer-turned-photographer has been busy running Fstoppers alongside co-founder Patrick Hall. In addition to running Fstoppers, he also has his own successful wedding and commercial photography studio.

Lee recently flew down to Los Angeles to interview Pye Jirsa about Lin and Jirsa Wedding Photography for their upcoming educational DVD on wedding photography. We figured since he’s in town, it would be the perfect opportunity to do a little interview with Lee.

Interestingly enough, in the course of filming for the Fstoppers new educational DVD, we came to the realization that we have two completely different business approaches to our respective photography studios. While both approaches differ quite radically, both of our studios are successful in their own right, simply different. In this interview, we will focus on discussing these differences and how there is definitely more than one way to skin a cat!

    As a wedding photog.  I can totally relate to this interview.  Watched and listened.  Very nice to hear some honest truth about the business.
