mentoring for wedding photographers
Helping You to Build a Successful and Profitable Business
SCROLL TO CONTINUE
I've never won a Fearless award. I've never been named as a top 10 Wedding Photographer in the world. And I don't even charge £5k a wedding.
So why should you choose me as your wedding photographer mentor then? How can I help you?
Well if your definition of being successful is to win loads of awards, receive adulation from other wedding photographers or be eye wateringly expensive then I'm not the right person to help you.
However, if you are looking for a mentor to help you improve your photography and grow your business, I believe I am the right choice for you. Here's why:
I have been a professional wedding photographer for over 10 years and have shot hundreds of weddings. This experience has taught me a lot about what it takes to create beautiful images that couples actually want to see, manage a wedding day, and build a successful photography business.
On average, I shoot around 50 weddings a year and deliver the final set of images within 3 weeks. Over the years I've developed the knowledge and processes to run a highly profitable business.
Whilst I'm not suggesting you also need to shoot 50 weddings a year, just think of what you can do with all the time saved if you COULD shoot 50 weddings but just choose not to. Think of all the extra time you could spend elsewhere within the business or even better quality time with your family!!
I understand that every photographer has unique strengths, weaknesses, and goals. That's why my mentoring approach is personalised to you. You can pick the topic(s) you want to work on. Or we can work together to identify areas where you can improve your photography and business, and I'll provide you with guidance and support to help you achieve your goals.
support beyond the sessions:
My mentoring doesn't end when the sessions are over. I'll be available to answer your questions and offer support as you implement the strategies we discuss. And if you're struggling with a particular aspect of your photography or business, I'll be there to help you work through it.
If you're serious about improving your wedding photography and growing your business, I can help you achieve your goals. Let's work together to take your photography business to the next level!
how I can help
A strong portfolio is absolutely imperative in attracting your customers. As wedding photographers, we can naturally become attached to our images. By being impartial, I can help you build a strong set of images that will achieve your goals and show images that couples truly want to see!
improving your wedding photography
I'm going to address the elephant in the room. Your photos don't need to be world beating, award winning images. But they do need to be good enough to appeal to couples who want to book you. If you feel you are lacking in certain areas then I can help you improve. Whether that is improving your natural light photography, posing or how to use off camera flash, I've got you.
wedding photography marketing
How do you find your ideal couples? Once they've enquired what's the best way to convert the booking? I can help you build a process that you can apply to your business that will make couples feel you are the perfect choice for them. Social media, SEO, paid advertising. Honestly I've tried them all. Let me tell you what really works and what doesn't. Learn from my successes and mistakes!
II. one year mentoring (in person and via zoom)
I. ad-hoc mentoring via zoom
Everyone is different and has different needs. That's why I believe a 1:1 session is the best way to learn. During our mentoring sessions you have my undivided attention and you will be able to freely ask me anything. What we talk about is 100% customised to you and what you want to learn. There's no minimum commitment or complicated contracts. We just chat whenever you need some extra support.
My comprehensive one-year mentoring program is designed to help you hone your photography and business skills. This is limited to two people each year so that I can give you the attention needed for you to create a successful business!

you are now and your future goals.
