I have a few questions for those of you who film weddings professionally. I’m currently looking at entering the business. I’ve done a few weddings for family so far and have been leanring quickly, but I was wondering what it takes to start a wedding video business professionally. Like, what is involved with taxes, incorporating, etc. And do I have to mess with taxes right away or wait until later? I don’t really know much about that yet. I’ve been wanting to get into this field though as a job. I’m 18, so not sure how the age would work into everything. Any responses would be appreciated.
Thanks alot for the advice. I’ll have to study up more on this. I’ve been studying videography and making films, including to feature films, since 1999, so I’ve got a pretty good hang of things. For cameras I currently only own a Panasonic PV-DV701, which isn’t that great, with access to 3 other camcorders similar to mine and also just recently possible access to an XL2 which my friend just bought. I’d probably just rent some better cams if the client wants them to be used. Anyways, thanks for the advice.
Yeah, I agree. It’s a constant learning process. Even looking at the last film I did, there’s alot I could have done better. I’m not really sure what I’m going to do for school yet. I may be attending a 14 month video production course through our homeschool organization next year. Beyond that, I’m not really sure, as I can’t really afford attending college. I may possibly look into distance learning and home college courses. I’ll just have to see what the future brings. Thanks!
