Do you need help and guidance with marketing your photography business?

Are you tired of being seen as 'just another' photographer?

Do you find yourself feeling frustrated by your current marketing activities and client reach?

Are you sick of undercharging for your work, then totally over-delivering and burning yourself out?

And I bet you’re not really too sure how to communicate your true brand and value of your offerings to potential clients?

If any of the above sounds like you, don’t worry – you’re not alone.


I’ve created a 4-week online ecourse from all the common issues I see my clients struggling with time and time again - and I’ve packaged it all up into bite-sized manageable chunks for you to learn at your own pace.

We’ll peel back the layers and identify what sets you and your service apart. We’ll clarify your unique point of difference, and identify and understand who your ideal client actually is. We’ll look at how to target and communicate effectively with your ideal client so you’re not throwing your money away. And, we’ll also tap into your brands visual style and voice to make sure the heart of YOU is in everything that you do.


Once we’ve got the above nailed, we’ll then begin on the marketing side of things. I’ll delve into 3 topics that most photographers simply overlook when it comes to marketing and generating enquiries (which in turn become bookings and sales). I’ll walk you through how you go about setting up these systems and marketing activities for you in your business so you can implement instantly and start to see the benefits of your new learning’s straight away. And we’ll also go into detail on pricing and packaging up your offerings.


There’s no need to struggle on alone, I’m here to help, and I’ve complied all this brilliant, strategic and awesome marketing know-how in the one handy location for you, to save you time and money!


All lessons are delivered online, meaning you can learn at your own pace, in the comfort of your own home – making it the perfect choice for busy people.

This 4 week ecourse is truly the best way to fast track your

marketing know-how in a funand supportive environment.
