As of summer 2023, I've been working in the beauty and boudoir industry for 8 years. Starting as a makeup artist in 2015, my interest for photography grew fast. Within my first year in business, I was offering paid photoshoots to booked clients, and eventually, went full time, opened a studio, and started paying my bills with boudoir photography.
I have a background working in branding and marketing photography, as well as website and social media management. These skill allow me to teach more than just boudoir, but all styles of photography.
Over this time, I've had a number of "if only I'd known this years ago" moments. From creating my first website to increasing my pricing, there are so many things I wish I had done differently when I was starting my business. Fortunately for you, I now offer mentorship programs to other photographers and business owners.
While studying for my Bachelors of Applied Arts, I learned a lot of things about the marketing and design world. I apply all of these skills to my life as a business owner and photographer!
If you're ready to make the most use of your website, give your clients a 5/5 star experience and/or increase your overall sales and bookings, there's no better time than now!
All learning is tailored to what you need to learn. We won't focus on any areas you won't find useful, or are already skilled in. Your time will be invested in learning the things that will help you improve as a business owner and photographer.
