Hi,


Photography focuses on the principles and technology of communicating information,ideas,moods and feelings through the creation of images on photographic film plates , digital images and that may prepare individuals to be professional photographic artists.

When you go from doing photography as a hobby to doing it as a business, you need to do MBA. Its an acronym, MBA means" Masters Of Business Administration or Association.

The core courses in the MBA program are designed to introduce students to the various areas of business such as accounting, finance,marketing, human resources, operation management etc.

Be it any field and whether you are employed or self employed , it is very important to understand the current trends in terms of business, latest developments, mindset, policies, marketing strategies, advertisement, consumer relation, international marketing, pricing , retailing etc and many more things , to stand in the field and succeed. MBA helps you to understand all this to grow your business.

Its marketing above everything which keeps you in the field.Mostly people get puzzled about idea of marketing as they think marketing means advertising. However, advertising is only a part of marketing. There are a variety of features of marketing that help in building the business. You need to have a comprehensive awareness of the idea of marketing to stand out in the business of advertising.

MBA of Marketing can guide you to grow in your profession.
This is a higher degree program which helps undergraduates to study the skills about customer activities, advertising and a range of other marketing theories.

I will suggest certain books also which are most wanted and appreciated in the business world now a days ,i am sure you will benefit from them too-

It has 32 chapters with over 500 pages showing actual case studies for different photography assignments . There are accounting examples and discussions on how to set up the accounts.

- Photography Business Secret

I think it must be clear to you now what is the scope and relevancy of MBA as a photographer. So wish you all the luck in your field and god bless you.

All the best !!!!!!!!!
