Build a strong foundation for your photography practice

As a photographer, you will need to master the technical basics of the camera and form a solid understanding of lighting and posing. My courses and workshops will teach you how to bring your creative vision to fruition. Together we will explore the difference between the world seen by the human eye and the world seen by the camera sensor. By forming an awareness of the gap between the two, you will be able to maximize your camera’s full potential.

build and sustain a profitable portrait photography business

Building a successful portrait business takes more than capturing a good image. Not only do you need the photography skills to create salable photographs that your clients will love, but you also have to know how to set up a business that will make you money and keep your clients and their referrals coming back.

As a business strategist and coach for professional photographers, I will work directly with you to construct a business blueprint that will become your path for business success! You will learn the best practices that are being used today so you can immediately implement them into your studio systems. My programs will teach you what you need to know to build a lasting, profitable business that fuels your creativity and unleashes you to pursue what you love to do best…photography!

Let’s work together to solve your photography and business challenges!

Being a photographer who spends year-after-year scratching out a living doing one photo session at a time is not the same as the photographer who has a “business mindset” and OWNS A PROFITABLE BUSINESS that markets and sells photographic products and services.

I will help you gain the FOCUS, CONFIDENCE, and RESULTS required to master lighting, posing, composition and post-processing so you can free up your mind and become more creative. As a business owner you will be able to make more money in photography, take control of your business and have more leisure time for yourself. Are you ready to get started?

How encouraging to have someone to help me move from point A to point B in my life and business. Doug is very patient and I really felt his sole purpose was to empower me to accomplish all that I wanted.
