Yet, I am now recording these videos also in Portuguese and I have already received many positive feedbacks about the initiative.
The videos cover subjects from the technical part of image editing to the most business-focused issue: “On my YouTube channel, I intend to help people not only improve their art, but also to become entrepreneurs and understand photography in the business area. So I cover how to make photography profitable, price list, the first steps on how to start this career, camera functions and how to choose the right settings according to the environment. ”
