one-on-one mentorship

Make no mistake : the barrier to entry into photography deceivingly low. The barrier to success is exceedingly high.

If I've learned anything in my 16 years as a photographer, the first step to getting what you want is defining it and admitting you really want it. Then it takes mindset, a specific set of strategies, and hard work.

I've distilled all my years of experience -- all of the failures, all of the wins -- into six succinct, transformative sessions.  Each session focuses on a key element of business building.

Let me help you accomplish the following:

  • Build a luxury brand and create demand
  • Position your brand and get noticed
  • Sell your work and your portrait experience for top dollar
  • Define your signature creative look
  • Steward client loyalty and create a referral tree
  • Manage your time with disciplined systems

We can also focus on the creative aspect of your work, including technical aspects of envisioning and creating compelling imagery. Portfolio reviews and Lightroom / Photoshop tutorial is available.

The program includes weekly zoom (or phone call) meetings.

The program is six consecutive weeks, typically 90 minutes per week for a total of 9 hours. Some clients complete the program in fewer hours; others wish to extend our time after completing our formal program. The choice is entirely yours.

We'll devise a custom outline as part of the discovery call to be sure to meet you where you are, address your specific needs and problems, and define a clear path to get you where you want to go.

A noted industry speaker, author, and educator, I've been featured in top national publications and work with top modeling and commercial agencies, including Ford Models, Ikon Models, Neiman Marcus, and Matilda Jane. I've taught hundreds of photographers since 2010 as part of my 1-on-1 Deep Dive and I've partnered with the PPA as a keynote speaker for hundreds of photographers since 2012.

Currently, commissions often sell for $10,000 or more, generating a steady six-figure income for my family and allowing me to serve wonderful clients doing work I love.

Let me share with you my proven strategies for success and inspire you to believe that this success is possible for anyone, in any market, in any genre of portrait photography.
