198: Skip Cohen Discusses Pricing Mistakes (and Solutions!) for Photographers

Skip Cohen is the President and founder of Skip Cohen University, past president of Rangefinder Publishing and WPPI, and past president of Hasselblad USA. He has co-authored six books on photography and actively supports dozens of projects each year involving photographic education.

In this interview, we discuss:

  • Mistakes photographers make with their pricing.
  • Identifying your true cost of doing business: insurance, car, computer, education, and more!
  • When you start to become a commodity, and why you don’t want that.
  • Paying attention to your market and local demographics.
  • Why it’s important to remember you don’t have to be able to afford your own services.
  • Correctly positioning your pricing with clients.
  • Research showing how many texts are opened versus emails.
  • Why getting your price list to consumers quickly is important and should be a priority with your marketing.
