What is a Mentor?

“ to support and advise someone with less experience to help them develop in their work ”

Starting a Photography Business?

Thinking of starting a photography business? Perhaps you want to develop a business plan to start a full-time career in photography or as a part-time business to supplement your income. I am now delighted to be offering a 12-month photography mentoring plan to help, advise and guide you in the first year of your business.

Maybe you have started your photography business but getting frustrated working alone, putting hours in and not seeing the results you want.

With over 30 years as a professional photographer, having sold well over £3m worth of my own photography now is the time to help the next generation of photographers thrive in an ever-increasingly competitive marketplace and avoid the costly pitfalls when starting out!

Your photography mentor plan will likely focus on defining your photographic style.  At the start, we will meet up to learn more about your photography business, create a 12-month business plan and focus on your requirements for development and growth.

During the 12-month program, we can organise a shoot together to cover technical questions, look at your portfolio to help you define your signature style, along with practical advice on setting up a business, including pricing, keeping records and running an efficient business. We will also look at your marketing and give advice on how to grow your business.

At the end of each session, I will assign a task or project for you to complete before our next meeting, helping you stay focused and steer you towards your goals.

I have myself paid for long-term business coaching…
it really does work!

Having someone holding me to account each month forced me to get the things I wanted to be done in my business – DONE!
