Welcome To Confident Photographers!

Photographers are artists, and there’s no reason they can’t be great business people too!

Running your own home-based photography business can leave you filled with so many questions.  There is a ton of information out there about running your own photography business – trust me, I’ve sifted through most of it. That’s why I created Confident Photographers, to provide a go-to spot for all the information and resources a photographer needs for success.

Hi, I’m Julie Renner

I’m here to show you how to build your photography business with confidence. I have been a professional photographer for over 10 years, and have worked with children, families, newborns, corporate events, and head shots.  Several times over a few years, I have moved my photography business to a new location, and each time I was able to become a profitable successful photographer in the new city.  I understand the business side of photography and want to help you learn how to make your business a success!
