St. Augustine, FL—A new Facebook Group, Speaking Volume, launched to teach the volume photography business. The school and sports photography business—commonly called volume photography—has seen growth over the past decade. Furthermore, digital capture, green screens, downloads and more have opened up new profit potential. However, the learning curve is often steep. That’s where Speaking Volume comes in.

Speaking Volume is answering the call to bring practical information to entry-level as well as to experienced photographers in a positive environment. The community is accessible at facebook.com/groups/SpeakingVolume. Moreover, it is spearheaded by Jeff Gump, Cr.Photog, who has more than three decades of volume photography experience, and Eric Miller, a nationally recognized speaker and volume photography business coach.
“We are collaborating with nearly 50 combined years of experience and knowledge to help fellow volume photographers with sales training, on-site photo shoot setup and just the day-to-day operations of running a successful volume photography business,” explained Miller.
“Our goal is to create a community where photographers can share experiences and keep up with the latest advancements,” added Gump. “Eric and I have strong relationships with the labs, the camera manufacturers, the software companies and other vendors. With our community, our combined voice will have tremendous impact.”
