Does this also sound familiar?

  • You believe you haven’t started your business because you think you need a bigger social media following first.
     

  • You don't have a background in business and sometimes think to yourself, "Sure would've been nice if I'd taken some classes on this stuff in college."

  • You really want to get your business up and running so you can capture moments and tell stories for people, and you’ve even offered free sessions to the masses…but it still hasn’t happened the way you hoped it would.
     

  • You’ve Googled how to start a photography business, but it hasn’t really gotten you anywhere. In fact, it’s just been a pretty big waste of time.
     

  • You browse other photographers on Instagram allll the time, and deep down, it makes you feel like something’s wrong with you because you can’t seem to make it work like they can.

SO YOU'RE ON A MISSION TO START YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS AND BEGIN BOOKING CLIENTS...

  • You bought a camera, started taking photos of people here and there, and realized you really love this thing.

  • But you don’t know how to start a business and get clients consistently coming your way.

  • If we’re being real with each other, you’re starting to get pretty overwhelmed and are wondering if you’re actually cut out for this business thing.

  • Sound about right? Then you, my friend, are in the right place.

And at the end of the day, you just really want to start and build your photography business — you see other photographers living this every single day, and you’re dreaming of the day when that's your reality.

The thing is, I started and grew my photography business when I hardly knew a thing about business!

 

So I know for certain...

 

You don’t need a massive following, and you don’t have to know everything there is to know about running a business.

 

So… what is it?

 

Why haven’t you turned your passion for photography into a profitable profession?

 

Before we get into that, I think it’s time for some good news.

You can increase your leads and book real clients without tons of followers or a business degree.

Just imagine what that would actually be like:

Consistently getting new inquiries in your inbox from people who want YOU to take their photos.

Having more freedom and flexibility - no more rushing out the door at 7:00 AM to get to work on time. Say "bye bye" to the cubicle and "hello" to working on your time in your way. 

Opening up your bank account to a new payment (cha-ching!) from a real-life client.

Waking up with your kids and spending the morning together! Taking your dog for a walk at 10:30 AM because you can! Booking the flights and taking the extra vacation!

Capturing memories that literally outlast you and me. What we get to be a part of as photographers is so special.

WHO AM I TO TEACH YOU HOW TO START AND SCALE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY BIZ?

Hey Hey, I'm Bethany!

Five years ago I had a dream (and a $500 camera from eBay). No clients, no website, no business. I was also teaching English to high school freshman. I spent nights and weekends shooting all kinds of things... from my sister's senior photos to my husband grilling in the backyard. I was soaking up all I could about how to make this thing a business. And somewhere along the way, I realized I love being a business owner.

I spent hours upon hours learning and trying to figure this thing out.

 

Then one spring day, I finally pulled the trigger on my very first online course for photographers. I figured out how to get my business up and running and bring in more paying clients (at a higher price point). I’ve been able to leave my job, replace my previous salary, and have time for the things that matter most. I’ve taken what I've learned on my journey and put it into Passion to Profession... this would've been gold when I was just starting out.

Passion to Profession can help you fast forward through the confusion and overwhelm!

CAITLIN'S CLIENT NOTICED A DIFFERENCE!

"My client experience has changed drastically, and I had a returning client mention it. Super awesome that she noticed and that she mentioned it made me look like "the real deal."

"If you have the desire to pursue your photography business further (or start a business), I recommend taking P2P to guide you on that journey...Bethany is beside you during the whole process."

If you're all the way to the bottom of this page, you may be having a hard time deciding if Passion to Profession is right for you.

Passion to Profession is for you if...

  • You have a camera and a passion for photography, and you've been thinking about starting your own photography business for a while.

  • You have a few hours a week to put in the work to make this happen.

Passion to Profession isn't for you if...
