Raves about the course:
*Your PhotoBizCoach Program is worth every penny! Your concern for and dedication to your students and to the professional photography industry is apparent from the first moment of the first workshop session. Your tremendous business experience which you willingly share is priceless. Seeing and hearing from others who, like me, are trying to grow their business is also a wonderful learning experience. I can give no higher recommendation–you are the best, and I thank you for the confidence I have gained. You inspired me to look within to determine why I chose to become a professional photographer, and that process has led me to a new approach in talking about what I do, in how I market, and in my focus. As a result, my numbers continue to improve, and my calendar continues to fill. Thank you again, Beate! ~Bob Harper www.bobharperphotography.com
*Dear Beate, I had a real “ah-ha” moment last night and wanted to reach out to you, as your ‘networking’ wisdom really connected with me in that moment. I attended an event and instead of going and feeling awkward because I felt I had to sell, I simply went to meet other women, have a good time and think about building relationships vs. closing a deal. WOW, what a different way of being. I felt more relaxed, more authentic, and thoroughly enjoyed myself! No more anxiety, disappointment or beating myself up for “failing” to get business. Where I used to dread these events because I felt I had to wear a hat that did not fit me, I now look forward to them with a new confidence! Everything you said about building business relationships being like dating made perfect sense to me at the time, though putting it into practice really brought it home! Thank you! ~Leslie Goodwin http://www.lesliegoodwinphotography.com
*Thanks Beate, I really enjoyed our Photo Biz sessions. Your warm candor, delivered with a light hearted smile is a wonderful gift. Thank you for understanding the fire that burns with-in us all. Your positive, personable coaching made the Photo Biz class not only informative but really fun. I gained from you just what I needed: Encouragement that I can and should be shooting and a strategic plan that shows where to put the focus so we rise above the crowd. Thank you for being there for all of us who just need a little insight to get us going again. Actually, the one greatest thing I got from our meeting was realizing how important it is to think in positive terms. I walked away from each session feeling just a little lighter. Thank you Beate for your generous spirit. ~Carolyn Schirmacher
*Participating in Beate’s course was like receiving new eyeglasses. Things were suddenly sharp and clear after spending a few hours in her course. Things I thought I knew I clearly did not! She has a matter-of-fact presentation that is laid out very clear and concise. During the course, I was able to have my marketing materials and website critiqued. It’s was painful yet necessary. With her comments, I’ve been able to slowly make changes to help bring new positive attention to my work. She also gives you a good slap of reality and helps bring you out of your marketing funk. During the course, her advice helped me book more work than usual and that in turn paid for my course. My session notes are now my “go to” guide for when I’m approaching new project. I highly recommend it. — Update 5/2013 Hey Beate! So Women’s Health just came out with their Eco Leaders feature on me and a handful of other women. I’m in the process of having a new space building downtown with all kinds of high end eco features. Im very excited! Just so you know, in addition to all this fabulous stuff going on I just booked the LARGEST job of my career to date using your advice. Thank you! ~Courtney Dailey, www.courtneydailey.com, Beauty photographer, Los Angeles
*I had to write to thank you for you PhotoBiz Intensive series. Having been involved in photography for many years I was comfortable in my ability to handle a camera and capture images. However I lacked skill when trying running a business successfully. Your course and your experience has inspired me to do more with my business. Your experience provided additional tools and imagination that has given me and my business a real confidence boost. With your help, I’m now taking on work that would previously have been beyond my reach. Thank you. ~Greg Harding, www.gregharding.co.uk/ BSc MIMI RMIP CPBP/Certified Photography Business Professional
*OMG! There is an expression in Sweden on the subject of motivation in which they say, “You need a little fire under the ass.” In that light, Beate you have been the blowtorch under mine. Until it stumbled out of my mouth and you articulated and elaborated on it, I never even remotely regarded myself an event photographer. However after this monstrous revelation to me from you, I’m literally jumping out of my seat I’m so fired up. I opened up LightRoom and treated myself to the biggest duuuhhh moment in many years. Three-quarters of my photography has been event photography. Furthermore, within this category, aside from so many masterpieces, there is also a considerable cache of celebrities and major concerts. DING! Thank you for being an integral part of my growth as a professional photographer and the quantum leap of which I have already left the ground. Stay tuned for Chapter Two. ~Amun-Re http://www.Runninghorse.cc
*Beate is a powerhouse of ideas who packs a lot of valuable information into her online Photo Biz course. She’s very well-organized and her ability to customize suggestions to each participant’s unique business situation is amazing! My greatest take-aways centered around new pricing strategies and ways to generate passive income ( a heretofore unimagined bonus)! No matter what your specialty or what type of photography business you operate, if you’re looking for more business, Beate will help! ~ Ellen, www.cornellcompany.com
*I am a different person after taking this course. I have more focus, more confidence, more drive, and more awareness of myself as a businessperson. I feel like an athlete who has been coached and readied for an Olympic trial: the photography business strength training field trials. And I am now ready to be at the top! Beate has a special approach that addressed my specific needs and requirements for my specific photography business. I never felt the information was being white washed or generalized with clichés or trite advice. She always asked what do you need and answered those questions with grace, wisdom, and practical advice. I must tell you that I was skeptical at first, and came away feeling that every penny was a penny well spent!! I know this course was one of the best investments I have made thus far in my career as a commercial/editorial photographer. ~Stephani www.buchmanphoto.com (P.S. Every word is authentic!)
*”Beate has taken me by the hand from the start and has lead me one step at a time through all the phases of the building of my photography business. Her extensive knowledge of the Photography market worldwide and her influence in her circles, are capital when you want to grasp the reality of the market. Also, her technology-tracking tips provide valuable, hands-on information about the latest developments that will help grow and monitor your business most efficiently. Her encouraging words and unfailing dedication have been positively influential on my project, especially in times of doubt. But the real strenght and value of Beate’s coaching is bringing photographers together in a community of professionals – which is an absolute criteria for me. I actually feel like a true professional photographer now, and I’m eager to answer the calls of the clients who are already knocking on my door!” ~Christine Bory, Luxembourg CPBP/Certified Photography Business Professional
*I wanted to take a moment to tell you how valuable I found the PhotoBiz Boot Camp and PB Intensive. They were well, intensive! The interaction with you and other photographers was incredible! I learned so much. Even the things I was doing right needed some tweaking and getting feedback from you and the others was so directly helpful. Not only do I now know what I need to do to take my business to the stars, but now I know exactly how to! Thank you! ~Michael Albany Photography www.michaelalbany.com, CPBP/Certified Photography Business Professional
*Beate has her hand on the pulse of many areas of the photographic world and uses her business acumen and creativity to come up with specific suggestions for improving photographic businesses. Her ability to make connections for people in her broad network is also a great asset. ~Jonathan Nourok Photography, www.jonathannourok.com, Member ASMP/LA ; CPBP/Certified Photography Business Professional
