What does a Living Portraits Franchise consist of?

So many people think of starting their own business - not just for the financial rewards but for the opportunity to be your own boss and run your own life.

But the downside is that although you get all the rewards, you also take the risks. Taking on a franchise within a proven operation reduces those risks substantially.

By joining Living Portraits, you can reduce them even more!

  • Established Track Record: As a franchise buyer, you become part of a proven system of operation. Your franchisor offers a concept with products and services that have sold successfully. You have history to learn from and to help you predict your own future.
  • Faster Start Up: You have a short learning curve as a franchise owner, because you have assistance from a franchisor with lots of experience to draw upon in starting other new operations successfully.
  • Purchasing Power: The group purchasing power of franchisees can make a big difference in your costs of doing business.
  • Name Recognition and Brand Awareness: With an established franchise, you get the benefits that occur from marketing an established brand of products or services. With a new franchise, you can grow and contribute to the creation of the brand.

Everyone knows what happens when you dig out a box of old photographs. You suddenly find yourself transported to a bygone era as happy memories of people, pets and places come flooding back.

That’s the power of photography. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking at a tiny, dog-eared, sepia print from the fifties or a colour photo from your schooldays in more recent times. Your imagination, like the image itself, is captured for all time.

You can be part of this winning business and capture a moment for someone.
