Hear from Previous Students

“Since I wasn’t earning much yet as a new photo manager, I felt I would consider the intensive the following year, after I had made some money! But I decided to bite the bullet and sign up for it and I’m so glad I did.

I had been so focused on taking the technical training on “how” to be a photo manager, that I hadn’t taken the time to focus on the “why” or the “how” to be an entrepreneur.

Knowing that the instructors had been photo managers before, gave me confidence that they could speak specifically to applying this course to this industry.

I started my business as “I want to help people do what had been my hobby”, but after the intensive, I became a confident business owner.

It helped me believe in myself, allowing clients to trust me with their memories. It was a great combination of strategy, plus the tactics to accomplish those strategies. Little things like creating an “elevator speech” and identifying my core values allowed me to articulate what I did and who I wanted to work with. I feel like this course was the critical key to giving me the right mindset to make my business a success.”

“As someone new to our profession, I walked into the Intensive comparing myself to others who’ve been in business for years, concerned that I don’t know enough and that I’m far behind.

But during the Intensive my thinking changed, and I realized that those previous thoughts were no longer an issue. My journey is my own and I feel confident about my commitment and enthusiasm for where I am and what’s to come.

Lisa Bianco, Lisa Luken and my fellow colleagues in the course provided a wonderful environment in which to learn, share, and feel empowered.”

“I joined the Business Intensive virtually in 2021. I had done business courses before and hesitated about signing up, but I am so glad that I took part. The course is run by Photo Managers who know the business and the challenges you face when you’re starting out. Their advice is invaluable.

I worked out my niche and how to add value to client projects – allowing me to charge premium rates. It also changed how I organise my time and working day.

There was a fantastic cohort of people in similar situations and we quickly bonded and still support each other today.”

A personal note from Lisa and Lisa

Your first step in growing a business is believing in yourself and investing in your growth as a CEO of your photo management business. We understand that saying ‘yes’ can feel risky. Yet we know that you will reap the rewards of more clients and more money. We have found that when photo managers join, they feel they need to be experts in all services, yet that leads to overwhelm. During our five months together, we will guide
you in deciding exactly what you want to focus on as a photo manager and we (along with your fellow classmates) will serve as accountability partners helping you stay on track to achieve success, profitability, and joy as a photo manager!

You are in control of your success and can do hard things. We are your coaches, and we take our roles seriously and are here for you throughout the five months. Your success is our success.

We have been delivering workshops for The Photo Managers since 2016 and are excited to be back again with this impactful program.
