If you appreciate the true value of the time saved by having an experienced mentor and structured support to get your photography business going, then apply to work with me 1-2-1 and we can talk about the options available.

I have space for 4 students at a time on this program. This allows be to be fully engaged with each student.

What can I teach and show you? 

As of 2024 I've had 14 years experience of running businesses, including a portrait and commercial photography business and a cleaning business. I've taught thousands of people about photography, with at least 20 serious business pros who have had continuing ongoing 1-2-1 support to set up and run their photography businesses and studios, over multiple sessions to help with websites, SEO, shooting and selling techniques, using flash, posing, using their cameras, editing images, embedding keywords, using google tools such as analytics and google my business and much more. I've helped many more people with my kick start your photography business session where we create a business plan together and I give them the information they need to start them off on their journeys from one session.

You can read my extended bio here to find out more about me and to see if you resonate with my story and like my vibe.

Successful applicants will have an introductory 1-2-1 with me, either in person or via zoom (depending on your location) in this session we will talk about your goals and come up with a plan and schedule that works around our diaries. This first talk will form the basis of your tuition with me, we will go through the answers to your application and choose how many tuition sessions we think you will need and the time and financial investment involved. 

The application page can be found here.

Once you have applied, if I am at full capacity and we are a good fit, I will add you to the waitlist so you don't miss out and will give you a free plan of things to consider in the mean time.

Your Portrait Photography Business Support Investment Info

The investment is £139 per three hour session with 1 hour recaps after each session at £45. As each applicant has different needs I will provide a personalised lesson plan with the investment total once we have discussed your application on our first 1-2-1 session. The application form has the different areas we would cover structured into 3 hour blocks, so you can roughly work out the cost if we stuck to exactly those sessions. In most cases there are additional sessions taken, decided by the learner, depending on each students experience or the amount of support they need. 

There is a payment plan you can use if needed, we will talk about this on your initial session too. 

What to expect from our tuition sessions

From each session you will get a mixture of worksheets that discuss what we cover, screen recordings if we learn via zoom and homework tasks for things you need to focus on in the time between our sessions.

You will have access to my big cheese membership included in for free if you have 10 or more sessions booked as part of your plan. Within this membership you get additional group screen time with our power hours and edit with me sessions, pre recorded lessons and courses, a resource pool with infographics, articles, example paperwork and access to our community.
