Not Another Pandemic Talk: How to Thrive in Today's Changed World with Bryan Caporicci and Sprout Studios

The pandemic was like a disaster. It came out of nowhere and ripped your life and your business apart. It created more hardship, fear, and isolation than anything you've ever experienced before.

But the pandemic also pushed what you already knew into the spotlight. It highlighted the parts of your business that needed fine-tuning, and the parts that could use an entire repair. Whether you know it or not, the pandemic showed you exactly what you need to do to succeed.

Don't worry - this is "not another pandemic" talk. Instead, we're going to focus on where you go from here.

Pricing For Long Term Success with Trevor Sherwin

I want to make the argument that only a handful of us as photographers are pricing for long term success. In many instances it seems, differentiating yourself from other photographers means charging less. But what if you charged more? What could you do with more income as a business? Could charging more actually be a way to gain an edge over your completion? Could it make your business thrive? Could it get you out of that low price cycle? Let’s talk about some big picture impacts on what a successful pricing model could do for your business and ways to do it in the context of portrait photography.

Trevor Sherwin Trevor Sherwin runs Provocateur Images a Luxury experience boudoir studio in Toronto with a goal of challenging societal beliefs on what beauty is and showing women, men & couples that measurements are just numbers and that looking amazing isn’t dictated by those numbers. He’s been running his photo business for 10+ years and always loves sharing his knowledge to make the community stronger and more prosperous.

BUMPED UP BOUDOIR with Tanya Smith

Learn how to pose and direct everyday women into simple boudoir poses that sell.

Boudoir photography is a very intimate genre which requires a different set of skills to guide and direct your clients. Most people are already nervous and awkward about getting their photos taken... imagine how a boudoir client feels when they have next to nothing (or nothing!) on! If you can make an everyday woman feel comfortable in front of your camera so you get those easy, natural and flattering images that make them say, “OMG! Is that really me?” they will buy those images AND recommend you to all their friends. Watch as Tanya shoots LIVE with a series of simple, classic boudoir poses, and see how easy it is to turn an everyday woman into a supermodel.

As Canada’s Premier women’s portrait photographer since 2011, Tanya fell in love with the power of boudoir to change the way a woman feels about herself. With her keen eye for details combined with her signature Flow Posing, Tanya creates a distinctive, instantly recognizable style signature. As a newly single mom struggling to make profit in her boudoir photography, Tanya merged her expertise from corporate banking and sales to revolutionize her business. This combination of artistry and business flair gave birth to The Growth Method, a simple strategic system which enabled her to grow her studio to over $400k in sales in 1 year. Her average sale is now over $5000 per client. Since 2017, Tanya has been sharing her unique approach, to mentor and coach boudoir and portrait photographers to create impact and income. Her online programs have enabled hundreds of photographers worldwide, (in every genre), to grow, and scale a successful business on their own terms.
