Photography and Business coaching program

In 7 weeks 50% more dream clients!

Or are you working part-time because you can’t make ends meet as a photographer yet?
You have spent years honing your styling and photography skills and are finally ready to transition from a hobby photographer to a professional photographer.

In my business program, I’m going to push you to action to make yourself visible so you start getting more work. 

We start 17 January!

About you:

You are just starting out as a photographer.
You dream of seeing your own work in magazines or collaborating on a cookbook. You want all your clients to come to you effortlessly.

If you have already taken the first steps in the business world, you will know how different it is from just taking pictures. The business side of photography is not so straightforward. As a business, you need to know how to find clients, what to charge, how to deal with customers, their expectations and deliver their vision.

Sounds complex? Don’t worry, I’m here to help you get on your way into the photography business with my Photography Business coaching program.

Have you ever wondered:

– How do I land a job?
– Even if I did land a job, how do I make a living doing photography?
– How much should I ask? Am I asking too much? Or is it too little?
– Why should they hire me and not someone else with far more talent and experience than me? 
 

If you have, let me be the one to tell you that you are not alone. Everyone starts this way.

When I first started a few years ago, I wanted to contribute to cookbooks and magazines and see my work on the pages of a flyer or even a billboard, but I did not know where to start.

I often wondered how others got their clients. Where did they find them?
And how do customers find me? What should I do to make myself more findable on Google?

And sometimes you hear that little voice in your head, where you compare yourself to other photographers. “They’ve already done much more than I’ve done and look, their work is in a magazine again!”.
But of course YOU want that too.
And I can tell you; I am still sooo happy every time my work appears in a magazine.
Over the years, I have realised that in order to run a successful photography business, you need to understand your customer base and learn from your mistakes.

Now my clients come to me. But it takes time and a lot of experience.

I will share my experience with you in my online Photography and Business course, so you don’t have to start at the bottom and have the edge over your competition.

Together, we will break down the walls of the hobby photographer world so that you can enter the business world with so much more confidence in yourself and your work. 

I have designed this course with novice photographers in mind. If you are just starting out and want to understand the business side of photography, then this course is perfect for you. 
We will cover every question you ever had about clients, pricing and more. 
 
The seven-week course Photography Business coaching program starts on 17 January 2022, and will be taught in English so everyone can follow along!

The online Photography and Business coaching from Lucie I followed gave me a lot of positive vibes. I really liked, it was with a group, knowing there are others with the same struggles, questions and ideas. I find Lucie a very warm, and a really open person. She thinks along with you and for me this course was a good motivation to make new steps in food photography, that can also be small steps.

Why do you need photography & business coaching?

You may not know how to start as a photographer, but you would love to learn how to get clients.
Or are you a part-time photographer only because your photography career doesn’t help ends meet?
 
Often the customers are next to you, but you do not notice it, and in this course, I will show you how to get customers to approach you and ask for your services.
You just need a foot in the door to get your career to take off.
 
To get that flying start in the world of photography, what you need is someone who can help you brainstorm and people who can support and help you.
Because I missed this crucial step at the beginning of my career, I had to figure out many things myself; I also made a lot of mistakes (oh yeas) and learned from this.
 
I wished for someone to be my sounding board, someone with whom I could consult about, for example, a shoot for a client.
 
Because in the beginning I don’t know everything and I was really unsure about certain things. And that’s okay. 
 

But my career would have gotten fast-tracked if I had someone to guide me, someone to hold me by the hand and help me. So, this is my opportunity to help budding photographers.

Let me help you now. I’m an open book and don’t hold back. I am happy to share my knowledge and experiences with you.

I’m really going to push you to ACTION. Prepare yourself.
Scary, yes.
Exciting? Yes.
Out of your comfort zone? Yes.

But then you go flying. Let’s rock this!
