School and Sports Photographers’ Planning Calendars for June

sports photography marketing tipsWe want to help make the lives of school and sports photographers a little easier, so we’ve created two annual planning calendars specifically for school and sports photographers. These timelines help you be proactive – not reactive, in managing your school and sports photography business!

Check it out and download the PDF’s on our resources page under H&H Information/School Calendars and H&H Information/Sports Photography Timeline. These are great resource tools to hang by your desk…. refer to them often to stay ahead of the game!
