\n. \nLet's start with the basic business license. Most cities and/or counties may require that if you are starting a business you will need to first acquire a business licen…se. \n. \nWhat is a business license?\n. \nBy definition a business license is a legal authorization in document form issued by municipal and/or state governments and required for business operations. Don't get this confused with DBA.\n. \nSo then what is a DBA? DBA is an abbreviation for "doing business as." Certain jurisdictions may also use the terms fictitious business name, trade name or assumed name. DBA registration is necessary if your business operates under a name other than its legal name. For a corporation, LLC, or other state registered entity, the legal name is the name on the filed articles. For all other business entities, the legal name is the personal name of the business owner or owners. Conducting business and opening a bank account under any name other than your legal business name is only possible after fulfilling your state's DBA filing requirement.\n. \nAnd what if you are selling items? Do most states require a state seller's permit? If you sell, lease personal property or sell taxable services at a retail or wholesale level, you are required to obtain a Seller's Permit. If you have more than one location where sales are made, a separate license is required for each location.\n. \nYou must obtain a State Employer Identification Number Also Called a State Tax Id EIN if you: Pay wages to one or more employees If your business is a corporation and you are an employee of the corporation (recommended so you can obtain all the tax free and deductible corporate fringe benefits) if you are a sole owner and the sole employee of your business getting an EIN is not required as long as you report the financial results of your business on Form 1040, Schedule C. The IRS and the Social Security use your social security number to track self-employment tax.\n. \nA federal tax identification number (also know as an employer identification number or EIN), is a number assigned solely to your business by the IRS. Your tax ID number is used to identify your business to several federal agencies responsible for the regulation of business. Any business offering products or services that are taxed in any way must get a federal tax ID number.\n. \nHere are some important resources to remember when filing for any of the above documents mentioned in this article. Just refer to the link below to get not only just in-depth information, but also excellent professional assistance. You won't be disappointed.
Yes. Normally you need one for the town/city that you live in. Their answers are normally "if you collect money in XXX town, you need a business license." It's annoying, but y…ou may not need a STATE license, just a city license.

In theory, a high school education would probably suffice (many great photographers of the past had as little or less), but you didn't ask what education you needed to run a … successful photography business. Let's start there: a photo studio is first and foremost a business . You need to understand how to make and keep and manage money. A business education could be invaluable. You don't have to have an MBA (Master's of Business Administration) but having a firm grasp of business principles can make all the difference between success and failure. Take business courses. Do not neglect this if you mean to be successful. To take interesting pictures, you must be interested. You need a strong liberal arts background. The more eclectic your education the more creative you can be, and creativity is paramount if you expect to be a successful photographer. You need to be able to (forgive the clichÃ©) think outside the box, seriously, because there are a million other photographers out there all competing for the same share of the business. Everyone is looking for something new and different. You need to create a personal style. It helps to have studied, to name but a few, art, art history, literature, humanities, science and social science. These things are all beneficial to developing what photographers call "the eye," that vision of the world and its subject matter which is unique to each photographer. It can't be taught. It can only be acquired, but the broader your educational base, the better. You can use at least some photographic education, although the nuts and bolts of photography can be learned by almost anyone without benefit of the classroom, especially in today's digital world where you no longer must have photochemistry and darkroom skills to succeed. A formal course in photography is unquestionably a shortcut to fundamental skillsets needed for success, but don't make the mistake of thinking that completion of a photo course makes you a photographer. It helps you to become a photographer. You do need to know how to operate your equipment, and understand principles of lighting and composition. To be a really skilled photographer, the camera has to become and extension of your hand and eye. You must be able to operate it without conscious thought. But this is a proficiency which comes with time and practice.

Ask at your city hall licensing department.
I have the same question, and of the State agencies I've talked to so far the answer has been "I don't think so." You definately need one for the county(s) you'll be operatin…g in and depending on the city, you may need one for them too. In Escambia and Santa Rosa counties, the business license is known as a Business Tax Reciept or BTR for short.

Like any profession you need to be competent to do the job and in photography you do not need a license. Having proper qualifications will help in people having confidence in …your ability. A lot of amateur photographers think they can earn a living and some do go on to make it. The most important part of the game is not the photography but the way you handle people. You must have proven work to show clients and you need a large bank balance to purchase the professional equipment that you need. You will always need two camera bodies plus lenses.
