Comprehensive Business Mentoring Program

FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS: Complete Business Consultation | Mentoring Services


Complete Business Mentoring Package - Investment: $4500

For fellow photographers whose goals include turning their passion for photography into a successful online business, I offer a Comprehensive Mentoring Program. In the short span of five years I took my passion for nature photography and built a highly successful fine art photographic print business with collectors of my work around the world and annual online print sales of over a half million dollars.

This level of success has afforded our family of four the ability to spend our precious time together at home or traveling the world instead of grinding away in an office or cubicle. While operating your own business of any kind takes dedication and continued hard work, I can honestly say that my worst days today are far greater than my best days were while working for someone else.

With over a decade of experience teaching fellow photographers both in the field and in the classroom, I offer a complete mentorship to highly motivated individuals looking to break into the field of fine art photography printing. The level of information and experience that I provide is greater than you would ever expect, holding nothing back from my road to success in this business.

Under my direction, in as short as one year's time, prior students have seen growth of over 1000% in their SEO statistics/Web traffic, online print sales and overall revenue, building a budding online fine art business from the ground up.

Past student growth over one years time implementing my methods and mentoring program.


How It Works | Complete Mentorship from Beginning to End

After discussing your goals and current situation to ensure we are a good fit working together, the process of mentorship begins. I begin by supplying a comprehensive notebook that outlines the general topics we will be covering during our time together. While you read through this 30+ page document, generating a list of preliminary questions for me, I will be analyzing and producing a complete analysis of your website, social media accounts, portfolio, current SEO structure and content.

Once we have completed these initial first steps, we will set up a series of phone calls in easily digestible blocks of 2 hours each as we go through all of the topics together in more depth. We will use Zoom, screen sharing, online tracking, SEO and analysis programs and other resources as needed throughout the process. Learning will be set at a pace you are comfortable with and can be completed quickly, or over an extended period of time as your put into motion the guidance I provide.

Once the bulk of the process has been completed, I will begin working on a customized step by step checklist outlining ongoing steps to take on a weekly, monthly and annual basis to continue to build your brand and your business going forward.

Topics covered in depth but not limited to include:

BUILDING A NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS FROM SCRATCH

From setting up best business practices & how to display, share and promote your work, a strong foundation is critical when building your brand. Designing an effective SEO based website utilizing high level knowledge of customer behavior and user experience is only the beginning. Technical SEO, on-page optimization and industry leading knowledge offer the opportunity to see dramatic growth in a shorter period of time.

My shared experience with image editing, file preparation and high end printing methods will provide you with all the knowledge you need to create stunning images for print. Staying organized and prioritizing your time will also be discussed as an important factor in the effectiveness of setting and achieving your goals in the shortest time possible.

Customer service, your image online and communication with clients, vendors and various small businesses are an important part of managing your business. These pieces to the puzzle will be covered in great detail including the do's and don't based on my years of real world experience selling fine art photography online.

HOW TO IDENTIFY, MONETIZE AND MAINTAIN MULTIPLE REVENUE STREAMS

Licensing your images to corporations and private clients for use with both online and offline marketing campaigns, retail products and the travel industry are all valuable passive income generators. From calendar & magazines submissions to working with publishers and designers, I have long term experience working directly with companies around the world over the past decade.
