The Business of Photography

 

Do you have the dream photography business you crave? Since you are here, my guess is no? Are you Frustrated? Spread thin? Find that clients are ghosting you after sending pricing? Are you contemplating getting a "real job"...

 

I have been there. It's a difficult transition from being a hobbyist photographer to running a business, and even more frustrating when you have already made that transition and you have tried to build a business, but you keep hitting a wall, or worse-- your experiencing the dreaded Burn-Out.

 

Hey! I'm Jessica, and I help photographers go from starving artist to profitable business owner so that they can finally have the business of their dreams doing what they love, and the freedom to do it full time.

 

I was where you are, I went into business for the freedom of time and finances while doing what I loved, but I quickly realized that the same old practices were not giving me the dream, finances or freedom I desired. The very best thing I could have possibly done was to get a business coach who specialized in photography to help me build a profitable business and give an unforgettable experience, it was a life-changer. 

 

If you are looking for how to increase your skill at shooting, editing or lighting your images, this is not the place for you (In fact I would outsource ALL of that before I outsourced marketing, connecting in the community and building my business!) But if you are ready to elevate your business and take it to its next level... then you are right where you are meant to be. Don't wait until you are hanging up your gear to realize that you could have been building the business of your dreams all along.

 

We have several options ranging from an a la carte hours for when you just need to check-in and get some clarity on any topic you like-- this can be done in person or over zoom--, to an all-day biz boot camp that focuses on everything from pricing for profit to ideal client to workflow to best practices in those first phone calls and sales-- and includes lunch. We even offer group ongoing coaching for current students to continue finding support through the processes. 

 

Are you ready to take that step and see what is possible for you and your business? Let's talk and see if we are a good fit! Fill out the form at the link below and I will be in touch soon!

 


Loneliness is the biggest killer of solopreneurs, and I feel like it is even harder on artists.

-Angelica V.


"I am afraid that I may come off rambling, it's just that I have such incredible things to say about my mentoring with Jessica. I came to her a huge mess, hoping that she would help sort me out. I thought I was making money in my photography business and unfortunately she had to point out that I was indeed not making hardly anything at all. She said my photography was beautiful, but my business sense was going to tank me right along with my husband. She was firm but gentle in conveying her advice. Some things I didn't want to hear, like charging my worth/raising my prices. It was such a huge leap of faith for me. And once I did it, I couldn't believe how good I felt. I continue to reach out to her for more mentoring regarding her brilliant business tactics. I refer her at any opportunity when I see anybody struggling with their business. I am becoming very successful because of her mentoring, and I can say that proudly!"

-Sandra C.
