    Episode 141: How to Set up Outsourcing Before You Need it With Nathan Holritz - Photo Field Notes Podcast: Career Advice for Photographers

    Today on the podcast, I’m talking with Nathan Holritz, founder of Photographer’s Edit and the Bokeh Photography Podcast. We’re covering work life balance and how to set up a successful outsourcing relationship before you need it.

    Nathan Holritz is an entrepreneur based in Chattanooga, TN. Starting in professional photography 17 years ago, Nathan helped bring a modern style of premium wedding photography to the Chattanooga market via Holritz Photography. While helping run Holritz Photography, Nathan saw both a personal and industry need for a company that could handle the post-processing of the thousands of images photographed at weddings.

    He created Photographer’s Edit, a company geared toward providing a solution for professional photographers to outsource this post-processing following weddings and large events. The company was launched in 2008, and has continued to grow since, processing millions of images for professional photographers. Nathan also hosts the Bokeh Photography Podcast, which focuses on the topics of photography technique, running a photography business, and creating more freedom and flexibility in your life as a photography business owner.
