  • Breakfast and Lunch, coffee and tea
  • Full day intimate workshop environment for a limited number of students

  • Complimentary 30 minute private mentor session within 6 months after the workshop to follow up on your progress!

 

What to Expect:

This full-day workshop is geared towards photographers who need help running their business the way a business should be run: efficiently, smartly, and profitably.  I want to ensure that students have ample opportunity to ask personalized questions, and I’ll be asking for information prior to the workshop.

Topics will include:

  • financial organization
  • client tracking and long-term planning
  • consistency
  • passive income using your technical skills for ‘mundane’ shoots
  • setting aside pride
  • website critiques
  • some of the ‘boring’ aspects of the business that can extend our longevity as career photographers.

Basically….all the grunt work we have to do in order to chase beautiful light with our ideal clients, and keep us thriving until we retire.

 

What to Bring:

A notebook, and lots of questions!  You will NOT need to bring your camera, as this workshop is focused on business and not on shooting techniques.

TESTIMONIALS

“As wedding photographers we are always looking for ways to improve and master our skills. Having Haley do a mentoring session with us was a great opportunity for our business.

She really has a knack for teaching – we would highly recommend her services!”

“I am 6 months into monetizing my photography business and had a 1 hour mentorship call with Haley. I was apprehensive about what it would be like to talk to someone I haven’t met, in depth, about my business but Haley alleviated those concerns straight away. Haley offered actionable tips that I can start implementing straight away, as well as overall inspiration and motivation. On top of that she was candid and open in sharing her own pricing and marketing strategies that have worked for her. Haley, what a legend, If you’re lacking a bit of direction in your photography business, I would definitely recommend Haley as a mentor.”

– Jenna

 

“Being mentored by Haley was a great experience. For me, it really gave me a fresh perspective on not just our website, but also everything we were doing, and I saw our photography business with new eyes. Also, I left feeling really excited and sometimes that’s all you need. I had tangible ideas of things that I can work on and improve whereas before I felt stuck and unsure of how to move forward. I would definitely recommend sitting down with Haley and discussing your photography business. Her welcoming and friendly personality makes you feel instantly at ease – which is important because business can be stressful!”

– Kelty

 

“Haley was incredibly insightful and helpful when it came to giving me new business ideas as well as suggestions on how to improve not only my marketing but also my online presence. She took the time to look over my website, portfolio and social media pages (Facebook and Instagram) and offered her professional opinion on each one and ways to improve them. Her advice was not only incredibly helpful, but also allowed me to strengthen my social media pages and also my brand – a very important aspect in photography. She also gave me incredible advice on things we all struggle with as photographers – pricing and worth. After discussing these with her I felt incredibly confident and excited to start this new chapter for my business. I would highly suggest anyone who needs help with getting their business out of a rut or even improving their overall work to contact Haley. Her years of experience and advice is worth its weight in gold!”
