DEEPER AND MORE PERSONALIZED
WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY EDUCATION

Long-term mentoring for ambitious photographers who

want to build authentic, purposeful, & profitable brands

MOST WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS
DON'T STAND OUT

Are you burnt out from the hustle of trying to survive as a wedding photographer? Do you find yourself spending money every year on workshops and conferences that fill you with inspiration but leave you with little action? Are you tired of shooting so much, uninspired by the couples who book you, or confused on what to do next in your business? Do you struggle with feeling adequate or good enough in a saturated industry filled with unbelievable talent?

I'M HERE TO HELP YOU TRANSFORM YOUR HUSTLING BUSINESS INTO AN INSPIRING BRAND SO THAT YOU WORK WITH THE COUPLES YOU WANT AND GET PAID WHAT YOUR WORTH 

HELLO! I’M ROBERT
I HELP AMBITIOUS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS BUILD
AUTHENTIC, PURPOSEFUL, & PROFITABLE BRANDS.

Wedding Photography has become a commodity and with more individuals entering the industry and technology advancing, our industry is now one that is saturated with everyone shooting and saying pretty much the the same thing. You can stand out and do something different though.

I've been photographing weddings since I was 16 (nearly 14 years ago) and I've seen the industry trends shift year after year.  Although I've found an immense amount of purpose in shooting weddings, I'm inspired far more by guiding photographers through how to build brands that matter and one that is driven by value. When you do this, you finally learn how to work less and make more.

The process I mentor photographers through is not one that teaches them to be more like me but instead, it guides them into building a brand around them and the artist they are.

If you feel stuck and want to take your business to the next level in 2019, I'd love to schedule a free 30-minute session for us to sit down and chat about how I can help you transform your business into an inspiring brand.

WHAT DOES THE
MENTORSHIP COVER?

I

SELF DISCOVERY
My mentoring starts with a deep self-discovery process that will shift your mindset and build confidence around who you are so your brand can stand out to every couple who comes to you.

II

STORYTELLING
Once you know who you are, you no longer have to compete in this saturated industry. We can now begin to tell your story and the story your brand needs to tell the world.

III

MARKETING / ADVERTISING
These are very different subjects and we’ll cover how to be actively engaged with couples and how to magnetize the right ones to your brand. This is when the magic really starts to unfold.

IV

SYSTEMS
You’re getting inquiries! But now what? How do you win couples over to you and put them through a process that cultivates trust and creates value so that they want to pay you what you are worth?

V

PRICING
What people will pay you is determined by the value you bring to the table, but there is a load of psychology that comes with non salesy selling as well. We'll cover it all here.

VI

ALBUMS / PRINTS
Why should print matter to your couples and how do you build value so that they want to make your images tangible? We'll dive into the power of print and cover the process that works for in-person and online sales.

VII

CLIENT RELATIONSHIPS
Relationships change everything and the experience you build through fostering connections with your couples will play a lifelong role in your business. We'll talk about how to do this efficiently and effectively.

VIII

SHOOTING / POSING / LIGHTENING
During Roadtrip, we will be diving deep into how you direct, interact, and light your couples in a natural way that allows you to build a unique style for your brand. This will all be hands on!

IX

WORKFLOW
Your overall workflow will determine the balance you have in life outside of work. We'll cover how to stay organize and crazy efficient in your post processing so that you can still have a life.

Nestled in the Central Oregon Mountains, the lodging for Roadtrip is in a centralized location to allow for more shooting, teaching, discussion, adventure and downtime. Every attendee will have their own bed for Roadtrip Oregon although some attendees will be sharing rooms with comfortable bunks. May is right when Portland’s weather starts to really set into summer so we should have beautiful weather during the day and chilly nights perfect for fireside chats. Information about what all to bring and plan for during Roadtrip will be sent to all attendees in February 2019.
