44 years ago, back in the Swinging Sixties, the BFP launched its correspondence course in freelance photography. Since then, it has been widely acclaimed, undergoing countless revisions over the years and numerous new editions. It has taught many thousands of amateur photographers the secrets of successful freelancing, enabling them to sell their pictures to magazines, books, newspapers, greetings cards and calendars etc. Now the BFP announces the launch ofnot just a new edition, but a new concept.
From September 1st the correspondence course will be discontinued and The BFP Freelance Photography Course will be available in book form, as a self-instruction package, complete with a set of tutorials, for just £27 including p&p.
The BFP Freelance Photography Course has been helping photographers to sell their pictures since 1968. This new edition will enable anyone to benefit from the knowledge contained within its pages. For we live in a highly visual age, where millions of photographs are required every day. And it matters not where those photographs come from; editors and picture buyers are just as happy tobuy from an amateur photographer as they are from a professional. All that matters is that you are providing the type of pictures the market needs. Like the original correspondence course, The BFP Freelance Photography Course is published in lesson format, so that readers will feel like they have a tutor at their side, teaching them how to produce the kind of pictures that will sellin today`s market.
The BFP Freelance Photography Course takes you step by step through the whole business of freelance photography, from understanding magazines and their picture needs, through general market requirements and freelancing essentials to shooting particular subjects for sale to particular markets. In short, the book provides all you need to start earning cash from your camera.
The BFP Freelance Photography Course can also be purchased as part of a special course/membership package. Those taking up this offer will receive a year`s membership of the Bureau of Freelance Photographers, during which they will receive the monthly Market Newsletter giving information on markets looking forpictures, the annual Freelance Photographer`s Market Handbook listing over 600 markets, and access to the BFP’s advisory and assistance service.
