Full Portrait and Wedding Photography Business franchise £8,500 + vat
Suitable for someone starting from home with the aim of eventually trading full time.
A Barrett & Coe franchise is a passport to more than business success alone. We will teach you how to create contemporary, leading edge photography. Take our knowledge and experience to help you build a professional, creative and profitable photographic business.
Whatever your background we can train you to take professional photographs. In our experience we have often found people surprise themselves in what they are able to achieve in a very short time. Our current franchisees include a former banker, lawyer, accountant, IT manager and property developer. Some franchisees are parents with young families.
We operate primarily in two markets - Portrait and/or Weddings. Andrew Coe was the first photographer in the UK to specialise in a reportage approach to wedding photography, now so popular with brides.
This form of photography has been a hallmark of the Barrett & Coe approach since the early 90’s. The portrait market has grown massively. The emergence of digital photography allows you to create relaxed, informal and spontaneous portraiture, breathing new life into the portrait market and enhancing the customer experience.
The Easy-Track Franchise is designed the franchise to be totally flexible to help you get off the ground. No photographic experience is necessary. You have the flexibility to choose to concentrate on baby and family photography, but if you want to concentrate on just Weddings that’s fine.
You may be wary of committing a large capital sum to buy a Franchise. Our training allows you to “try before you buy”. You can enroll on one of our nationally recognised training Wedding and/or Portrait courses which last over a period of time with monthly seminars to help you decide if our Franchise is right for you.
The training culminates in a full day of practical and written work covering photography, marketing, business systems and photographic theory in order to achieve your Barrett & Coe photography qualification.
Each franchisee is required to become a member of the MPA (Master Photographers Association). To take this route you will require a minimum of photography equipment.
There can be high potential earnings with low overheads. The Easy-Track Franchise can be easily operated from home. It is an easy low cost start-up. High average orders can be achieved from baby, family portrait sittings and weddings by some our Franchisees.
There is the opportunity to receive family portrait bookings from our arrangements with national brands: Emma’s Diary, Activity Superstore (WHSmith, Boots, Argos, Debenhams, Menkind, Clintons, Superdrug) and the National Childbirth Trust (NCT). For some of these appointments a studio is required.
... and above all, a very nice person!
