In today’s world, most people want to document their days with photographs. Whether it’s a big event like a wedding or something smaller like a birthday, people want pictures to post and look back on those memories. That said, professional photography is more popular than ever. You may be booked out for months in advance, but are your clients paying you back for your services? You might let them pay in installments, but that doesn’t mean they won’t fall behind on payments. If you find yourself in this situation, know that there is a solution. Southwest Recovery Services is here to help you recover what is yours. We are a national debt collection agency that has many years of experience in this industry. All you need to do is call and we will be on it!
Challenges of Professional Photography Debt Collections
Professional photography services are very time-consuming. There are many steps that need to be taken such as planning out the props, outfits, and scenes, driving to the locations, setting up the lights and background, conducting the photography session, and editing the photos to become perfect products.
Where do you fit the time to chase down clients for their unpaid invoices? Most professional photographers don’t have the time. But that shouldn’t stop you from receiving proper payments. There are a couple of things that you can do to collect. For example, you can take proper training courses and collect yourself. Training is vital because there are rules and regulations that need to be followed, such as:
- Fair Credit Reporting Act
- Bankruptcy Laws
- Fair Debt Collection Practices Act Certification Class
- American Collectors Association Rules and Regulations
It is important to uphold these regulations to ensure ethical collections. However, the best solution is to outsource to a debt collection agency like Southwest Recovery Services. Our agents are efficient and our services are cost-effective.
