Join today and get powerful information in a step by step format that will quickly help you realize your potential of becoming a paid professional photographer.
From the Desks of Lori Osterberg and Andrew Osterberg
Since we first started coaching and helping other photographers fulfill their dreams of becoming a successful photographer almost seven years ago, our number one goal has been to provide top quality business advice. There are tons of websites and resources to make you a better photographer; yet very few sites stick to solid business advice week after week, month after month.
Over the years, we’ve heard from many people asking the same thing:
“Lori, HOW did you move from amateur to professional status? Can I really do this just to bring in a little extra income right now while I learn the tricks of the trade?”
“How did you move from the job mentality to the entrepreneur mentality and make your photography business succeed?”
“My dream is to give up this non-fulfilling job I hate, and do my photography full time. I need to know how you made it work and if it’s still possible today.”
Now, what I’m going to share is different than anything you’ve read before … but its actually very real and attainable for you to get into the business of photography in today’s marketplace. It can make your life happier, your goals and dreams more realistic, and give you the freedom to pull away from your current “job” as much or as little as you like.
Are you currently a:
Full time employee: You likely work 40+ hours per week. You may be facing budget cuts and pink slips, worrying if you’ll actually have a job tomorrow.
Part time employee: You have a job to get you by and maybe bring in a little extra income. Yet after factoring in how much time you spend at it and how much you really make, you’re faced with the question of wondering if this is truly worth it.
Looking for work: You’ve already faced the pink slip after spending years giving your all to the boss. With hundreds of applications out there for every job you look at, you’re wondering what’s next.
Stay at home mom or dad: You haven’t made much money in the past few years. You’ve enjoyed being at home with the kids. But times are different now. Maybe your spouse is worried about his/her job. Maybe you want something more. You’re looking for a way to grow your income. And enjoy what you do while you earn that income too.
Yes? Then you’re reading the right letter because I’m here to help YOU. Whether you’ve been dreaming of a photography business for a few days, a few months, or even a few years, NOW is your time to make it happen!
When we first started out in this business, we did what a lot of other photographers still do today. We both worked full-time and spent nights and weekends shooting with friends and attending classes to improve our photography. Then Andrew lost three jobs in three years due to corporate downsizing. I watched my father re-interview for his 30-year existing position year after year, waiting for the day he would turn 55 and retire. That day never came … he passed away three months before his 55th birthday. But we learned a very valuable lesson through all of that turmoil.
We learned security comes from creating the life you choose. So we decided to start up our own photography business, and we’ve never looked back.
We grew quickly. We managed our success by creating step-by-step systems that could help us keep everything on track. We achieved a Six Figure income level in less than two years. And we kept growing from there.
To us, our systems meant we could keep growing without having to worry about how to handle all of the business coming in. We didn’t look at ourselves as photographers; we looked at ourselves as entrepreneurs in the photography field. (That’s a distinction many photographers never make, and it’s the one thing that holds them back from moving from a starving mindset to a successful one. We’ll talk about that in Five Figure Photographer.)
And consider this, the content here is the same system we used to grow our own photography business … and you won’t learn it in this format from anyone else.
Here’s what we learned: Without a step by step plan to make your business succeed, your chances of success are miniscule at best – especially in the short run, when you need it to succeed the most!
We’ve realized many get stuck in the job mentality and don’t understand simple small business ideas
They fear marketing and sales
They fear charging what they truly are worth
They put all of their time and energy into taking pictures
They ignore the most important tasks that keep them from success
It doesn’t have to be that way
The sooner you change your mentality towards bringing in income with your photography business, the quicker you’ll actually start bringing in income with your photography business.
It’s that simple.
Our program will quickly walk you through the steps to launch, market and grow your own photography business. You’ll discover …
