Try not to let your business own you: Damien LovegroveThe Lovegroves burst onto the wedding photography scene in 2000 and it took them just two years to reach the top of their game.  Prophotonut is Damien Lovegrove's extensive resource base for photographers turning pro. Check out his DVDs, book and training workshops. To check out his latest DVD 'Big Day' visit prophotonut and lovegroveconsulting.

Here's his tip: "Put yourself first and plan your business and your future around your personal needs. In the service retail sector we can be all too valuable for our own good. The truth for most wedding photographers is that rather than owning the business themselves, the business owns them! It's far too easy to think that you have arrived when your name is in lights above the door of your studio and your photography is in demand from your local community. Just remember even with this level of success, taking extended holidays is expensive because if you're not shooting, you're not earning."
