I get it! I have been there. Truthfully, it’s a marvel to me that this is my life today and what most people don’t know is that there were MANY times when I assumed photography might not be the path for me.
I used to spend the majority of my days and time tethered to my laptop thrilled if I could earn enough to not worry about paying my rent or if I had 4 or 5 shoots in a month, 4 or 5 opportunities irregardless of what they paid to do the work that brought me joy, called on my creativity and that I felt enlivened by. When I wasn’t behind a camera, I was slogging along praying for someone to hire me. I got to a point in 2011 when I became so frustrated with struggling to earn a consistent living sustainably that I nearly threw in the towel. I was ready to give up on being a photographer because it felt impossible to succeed and yet when I envisioned my future, being a photographer was still my dream career.
I decided it was make or break time and started learning everything I could about succeeding in business, attracting my ideal clients and refining my skills.
Thank GOD I didn’t give up!!! When I decide to give it my all, I discovered that not only was photography my dream career, it could provide me with a life beyond my wildest dreams.
For years I dreamt of having my career take me out of my office and into the world. But the truth is, I NEVER imagined it would look like this. That I would spend weeks at a time living in global cities like Paris, London, Florence, Sydney, NY, LA and Miami. That my work would take me to Ibiza, Provence, St. Tropez, Tulum, Panama, from the beautiful Pacific Northwest to New England, the Rockie Mountains and countless other places.
Today, I spend over 30 weeks of the year exploring the places of my choosing and on average am shooting 8-10 days a month charging top dollar and still able to overdeliver. I have a killer team to handle the work that used to keep me tethered to my laptop and I want to share with you how I got here!
I nearly gave up my DREAM career, because I was just so tired of:
- Struggling to find clients, or earn a consistent income as a photographer
- Spending countless hours on conversations with prospects… that didn’t result in sales
- Feeling uncertain about how to price & value what I offered
- Spending countless hours behind my laptop instead of behind my camera and not knowing what to do to find clients
- Worried the clients I did have were going to be satisfied with what I delivered
- Shooting just about anything for the sake of getting paid – even projects that weren’t in alignment with my values or my brand
- Feeling like I was never good enough… even when clients raved about my work, I always assumed the worst
If you can relate to these challenges, you’re not alone.
I see far too many photographers with beautiful work who are struggling to make it financially

RAVE REVIEWS ABOUT WENDY’S MENTORING
“I feel like a new (business) woman. My confidence has soared and I feel like I have all the tools to make this business work…and thrive! The whole masterclass workshop has been a life changer for me and my business. Initially I was hesitant to fly across the continent to do this. Especially when you’re running a small business – every penny counts! And every penny I did spend on this experience was worth a million. In addition to the expansive knowledge and tips that we were taught, it was so valuable to know that this is possible for me. Seeing a woman who is a leader, gorgeous soul and killin’ it in this business was so empowering.”
“I left my 9-5 with a very specific vision for the work that I wanted to do. Many people in my life questioned it. But after meeting Wendy and taking this masterclass, it was SO affirming that my dreams are possible. That this work is desired and needed. Work that can transform lives and also be profitable! I walked away with WAY more than I thought I would. And it wasn’t just the individual pieces (which were super valuable on their own), but it’s the way Wendy approaches the business as a whole.”
“Wendy gave the right amount of information, strategies, tactics and guidance. I was surprised at how much I was able to grow and transform my business in such a short period of time. Learning to use her sales technique has been a game changer and I’m surprised at how different and easier it feels to book clients. In addition, I feel more capable of delivering great results and attracting clients I want to work with then ever before.”
“Way exceeded my expectations! Wendy was so generous with the in-depth, practical, and supportive experience/knowledge. Not only did I get value from hands-on experience, but I also walked away truly invigorated and on FIRE with great tools in my pocket that I have been applying to all aspects of my business, like amazing sales techniques and marketing strategies. Seriously worth every penny!”
