Genuine Reviews From Past Students:
* "As a landscape photography enthusiast anxious to start my own business, the decision to attend Aaron's workshop was the best thing I could have done to kick-start the process. The knowledge you will gain in a weekend covers every topic imaginable related to the monetization of your art. Since the course concluded, I have expanded my portfolio, gained experience with high quality printing and have started planning my first website. With this new wealth of knowledge, I am finding myself motivated more than ever before to reach my photography goals. If you have similar ambitions, you can't afford NOT to attend this workshop! Aaron's course was, bar none, the best investment I have ever made in myself."

* I learned more from Aaron than I ever though I would. This course was packed with all the answers I had been seeking about print sales and marketing. Come to this course with the most specific questions about turning photography into a business and Aaron will answer every one. On top of this, I’ve met some very talented photographers. Bottom line, you’ll sell more prints after this course which will in turn pay for itself.

* Aaron’s workshop was extremely beneficial! He has a wealth of knowledge from years of experience running a successful photography business. This is especially true in regards to selling prints and licensing images. If
you take the time to implement many of the ideas he presents and really put a lot of effort into your business, you will find success. I took Aaron’s workshop in August and launched a new website in December with some of the things learned from the workshop and am starting to see an uptick in business. Surprisingly, even though I was really going after the fine art print market, I’ve seen the image licensing side of my business grow exponentially (I'm talking in the thousands of dollars) in the past two months since launching my new website. The things Aaron teaches absolutely work if you’re willing to spend the time and effort it takes to grow your business. You will be given enough information that it will take many months to even implement all of it!

* A quick note to say thank you for letting me join the class. It was great, lots of good information that I am still processing (pun sort of intended :)) Since the class, I obtained a web domain, am updating my website, and am ordering certificates of authenticity and new business cards. So, I would say it was quite inspiring! Now I just need some time from work to create some new art!

Aaron’s workshop, “The Business of Nature Photography” was well worth my time and money. The two day event was packed with non-stop information delivered in a fun and casual atmosphere. Aaron’s sense of humor and ability to share endless anecdotal scenarios really brought the information to life and made the serious topic of business and money making a lot of fun to listen to. Aside from the facts and good business sense stuff, Aaron really made me think about where I want to go with my photography. He explained the model he uses and was really honest and forthcoming with strengths and drawbacks to various approaches. Aaron did not shy away from sharing his own personal mistakes so that we might learn from them. I highly recommend this workshop for those looking to take their photography business to the next level! I will be implementing various things that I learned from Aaron over the next few months and I know that the presentation of my work will be put forth with more professionalism and confidence.

I've been in the photography business for several years and felt that I had reached a point of stagnation in my growth. While I know how to take photos and teach workshops, expanding my business to reach new customers and diversify my revenue streams was something that I struggled with, and something that I knew I needed to do. I've long admired Aaron's business success, so when he decided to offer his first Business of Nature Photography Workshop I jumped at the chance to get a look as to how he achieved it. I will tell you that this isn't easy, but having the guidance and tools that Aaron provided has given me a sense of 'I can do this' that I didn't have before. There's no secret recipe for success but with Aaron providing the ingredients that I needed and learning how he used them has enabled me to grow my business. I'm seeing more website traffic, more clients, and more return with each thing that I learned in his workshop that I continue to implement. I'm happy that I got to take the workshop and that I'm seeing a return on that investment.. because it IS an investment. An investment in myself, my business, and my future. If you're looking for guidance in this highly competitive field, I suggest learning from one of the best: Aaron Reed.
