This bootcamp is NOT about photography, but how to get your photography business started and the steps you need to keep it going. This is about the business and marketing side of photography taught by three well-established industry experts.
The GoingPro bootcamp is designed to help you get what you need to pursue your dream and get your business off the ground. We will help you with ideas on marketing, social media, building your client base, pricing, added value, working on your selling skills and community involvement, just to name a few. We're going to help you develop that long list of necessities to get yourself established as a professional photographer.
Seating is going to be extremely limited. This is a boutique conference by design. We want to make sure we get time with each of you. We want to make sure that after you attend this business bootcamp you are ready to start work immediately.

***Michelle Celentano will be teaching with us and her experience is remarkable. She’s been a photographer for twenty-one years and is based in Phoenix. Her work has been published in Rangefinder, American Photographer and Shutterbug, just to name a few. She is a Canon Explorer of Light and actively teaches at various conventions around the U.S. However, it’s not Michelle’s expertise as a photographer that has us excited about her joining us at GoingPro Bootcamp. Michelle’s experience as a business person is incredible along with her ability to be completely open on the good and bad things she did when first getting started and again when she moved her business to Phoenix. Her marketing skills are outstanding and she’s constantly looking for ways to reinvent herself in the Arizona market. She’ll be sharing ideas on building client relationships, diversity in your skill set and marketing yourself so that your work is about the experience and an investment by your clients, not just getting their portrait done. And the most fun quality of working with Michelle is her honesty. We can promise you a completely candid discussion on virtually any topic related to going pro! With over twenty one years in business, Michelle has virtually done it all – here’s your chance to benefit from her experience as your start to develop your own business strategy.
