The BFP Freelance Photography Course

Ever since the BFP correspondence course was first published in 1968, it has been helping photographers like you to sell their pictures. Regularly updated with new editions appearing at frequent intervals, it has shown many thousands of amateur photographers the secrets of successful freelancing – whether on a part-time or a full-time basis.

Now the BFP announces the launch of not just a new edition, but a new concept. The old-style correspondence course is discontinued and a brand new edition of The BFP Freelance Photography Course is available in book form, as a self-instruction package, complete with a set of tutorials.


BFP Books

BFP Books publishes books on different aspects of freelance photography, again designed to help you sell your work and get to grips with the marketplace.
