Volume photography leaders launch free educational community

“Speaking Volume” is a new Facebook Group to teach the volume photography business

The school and sports photography business – commonly called “volume photography” – has seen tremendous growth over the past decade. Digital capture, green screens, downloads and more have opened up new profit potential, but the learning curve can be steep.

A new Facebook Group called “Speaking Volume” is answering the call to bring practical information to entry-level and to experienced photographers in a positive environment. The community, which can be found at https://www.facebook.com/groups/SpeakingVolume/, is spearheaded by Jeff Gump, Cr.Photog, who has more than three decades of volume photography experience, and Eric Miller,  who is nationally recognized speaker and volume photography business coach.

“We are collaborating with nearly 50 combined years of experience and knowledge to help fellow volume photographers with sales training, onsite photoshoot setup, and just the day to day operations of running a successful volume photography business,” explains Miller.

“Our goal is to create a community where photographers can share experiences and keep up with the latest advancements,” says Gump. “Eric and I have strong relationships with the labs, the camera manufacturers, the software companies and other vendors. With our community, our combined voice will have a tremendous impact.”

Sponsorships are available by contacting Gump or Miller.
