No one I know knows more about more aspects of the photography business than Beate. But of greater importance to me is her willingness to share whatever she knows with great insight and compassion. I have been in the business of making pictures for four decades now, and had thought I’d figured it all out a number of times. Changes over the last few years taught me, however, that there was plenty I still had yet to learn. A couple of years ago it felt like my business had stepped into the ring with Mike Tyson in his prime. That’s when Beate came to the rescue. Her coaching services and methods for growing and maintaining one’s business proved invaluable at a time that I was convinced the only solution was to throw in the towel for good. She picked me up, dusted me off and sent me back into the ring with new techniques for locating and securing clients, while making the most of relationships I had already established along with much better day-to-day business practices. Beate can cut to the heart of the matter in no time.
