Photography Tips + Tricks

 
 

Welcome to my home for helping others. I decided to start writing a photographers tips blog because I tend to see (and get asked) the same sort of questions over and over… So instead of responding the same way again and again, I decided there should be a place for me to put all this information! This is here to help you find your best self!

Mentoring

 
 
 

You have a camera, people love your pictures, and you absolutely love doing it! So you start taking pictures of friends, and their kids, and some family, and your own kids… and then you realize that this thing you did for fun is actually a lot of work - but also that you wouldn’t dream of doing anything else. So how to move from fun to profit? How can you make this small side gig a full time passion project that you can actually live off of? Where do you get clients that aren’t friends and family? How do you make sure you are doing this whole thing legally, and covering your bases?

Honestly, you can fumble through it. I did for about 4 out of my 11 years of business. I did everything the backwards way, and look back and wish I had the sense to hire a mentor and coach to guide me through everything! Because of that, I have decided to share the knowledge I worked so hard for, so maybe someone out there doesn’t do things as backward as I did, and instead


1:1 Mentoring - $150/hr.

This can cover any sort of mentoring - pricing for profit and sustainability, contracts, social media, workflow... All those things that are the overlooked part of running a photography business (other than the shooting!). If you want to get to a place where you feel more comfortable emailing clients, are answering questions before they are answered, being found on google, or just need help setting up your price list where you have faith that it is worthwhile for you and them, this is for you.

Meetings are generally 1-2 hours, per topic

Session Confidence - $795

  • You can't figure out how to pose clients on the go. You want real connections but get stuck. You have brain freeze every time a session happens.

  • You can't get your editing to the place you want it. You have the programs, have the skill in camera, but don't know how to use it all together.

  • You want to learn more about lighting, posing, editing, or any of the above.

One hour long meeting, one photo shoot, my go to list of prompts, and one editing session.

Full Business Confidence - $200/monthly or $2000/paid in full

A full year of mentoring. We meet once a month to go through whatever it is you are struggling with at that point, as well as chat, text and phonecall support throughout the year . It includes help with pricing, website, SEO, workflow, business, posing, client communication, contracts, questionnaires, culling, editing, and more. I will come with you on a photoshoot and give you feedback afterwards, as well as help you cull and edit your full session, as well as having you to shadow me on a photoshoot to see how I do things, and watch me cull and edit the full session. 

 
 

bsp mentorships

I'm so super excited you've decided to invest in YOURSELF and YOUR DREAM! That is honestly the hardest part - choosing to give back to yourself! I know that seems super cliche, but it takes a lot to step out of the idea that you should already know everything, and that you shouldn't ask for help.  Trust me, asking for help is the best thing you can do for your business!

As you've already seen, I offer several different mentorships. Some are just one day, and some carry throughout the year - that way I can be sure to give you the help you need, and not too much or too little.

Below is my mentorship questionnaire and contract. Please fill it out completely, and honestly.
