Why do Photographers need specialist accountants?

The creativity and dynamism of those in photography regularly sits uncomfortably with the often conventional world of the professional advisor. This is not true of LEES. We know your job is pressurised, image sensitive and always competitive. There can be peaks and troughs in the demands on your time. When the demands are intense, you need to know your tax and accounting matters are under control.

The professional photographic sector is increasingly competitive and often photographers have to work hard to ensure they get commissions. The successful photographers are often those that effectively market their businesses, identify new opportunities and quickly adopt new technologies.

We understand that margins can be affected by the photographer having to discount large bills to retain client goodwill, miscalculations in the amount of time needed to complete a job or the amount of materials that need to be used, the threat of constant discounting and mistakes that may lead to photographers needing a re-shoot (which are usually not charged for), wastage, materials and time not charged for.
