Hey! I'm Amanda!
I'm a commercial brand photographer based in Brisbane. I worked in corporate for 5 years and having been made redundant and fired, I'm finally living my DREAM life shooting for brands and earning WAY more than I was working a 9-5.
In fact, my job has never been more stable working for myself. But I've worked my BUTT off to get here, and I'm going to help YOU do the exact same thing.
This industry can be hard to navigate. There are some things that have taken me months - years to figure out. And I wish I had a mentor when I started.
I can't wait to teach you EVERYTHING I know to help you find success in your photography biz.

I wish I had someone to ask...

- How do I actually book clients? (I legit thought there was some magic formula)
- How do I achieve this particular type of image? What lighting do I need for it?
- How do I edit to make my photo look crisp and clean and remove these blue and yellow hues? It's driving me CRAZY!
- Where do I get that prop from? I've looked EVERYWHERE!
- How do I attract a higher paying client?

EXCLUSIVE PRIVATE FACEBOOK GROUP
This Facebook group ALONE is worth the price of the course!
This will be a safe space where I will be offering my ongoing support to be there to answer ANY questions you have along your journey as well as to provide further training when I feel my students need it.
There will be questions you need to ask that only another photographer will be able to answer for you. No more trying to figure out the answer for yourself or spending hours googling it.
You'll make friends with other photographers who are in the same space as you to gain feedback on your work or quote before sending it off to a client, to rant to when you have a stressful situation, and to BE THERE to SUPPORT you.
I can't emphasise enough how IMPORTANT it is to build a support network around you.

"Where to even begin. Amanda has given me a new love for online learning. This course is FULL TO THE BRIM of goodness and knowledge that she’s learnt over years. She really doesn’t hold back. It’s professional, it engaging and I genuinely cannot speak highly enough of her and this. What’s more? She just continues to add more and more content to it. It’s like a never ending bar of chocolate that just keeps giving... the dream. Thank you Amanda!"
- The Social Impact
"Amanda has helped me SO much in my photography training before I even signed up for the course. Her constant advice and education she gives to her followers is INCREDIBLE. When I signed up for her course this was just elevated! There is so much value in the course and it has helped me level up my photography in so many ways. As photography isn’t my main job and business focus some of the course isn’t relevant to me, but 90% of it is and this course is worth SO much more than the small investment. If you’re on the fence? DO IT!"
- Blossom Media
The course has seriously changed my life! I can't thank you enough! Words can't explain how much this course has helped me and I'm only half way!! In terms of my skill but also the business side of things, believing in myself and my money mindset. You're bloody unreal!! So grateful for you.

So, are YOU ready to invest in yourself and the future of your business?
This course is worth its weight in Gold. Amanda is so thorough, thoughtful and willing to share absolutely everything. She has a no BS approach and opens up the doors of her business for her students to learn from. This course has changed the trajectory of my business, I have definitely levelled up my photography skills, but not only that, I have learnt about client communication, marketing, editing, pricing and more. I also love that Amanda has been so willing to answer any and all of my questions. She truly cares about her students and genuinely wants them to succeed. I have already booked 2 clients since implementing Amanda's strategies, and so this course has already paid for itself. I highly recommend to anyone who is serious about pursuing their dream in Brand Photography. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK you, Amanda! I'm so glad I bit the bullet and invested in myself and my business. I wish I could take you out for a celebratory drink! x
Amanda has been monumental in giving me back my confidence to pursue a career as a photographer. I’ve been working in the industry for over 15 years but all too often you’re up against “low/no budget” or TFP shoots so how do you compete with that?! As a result, photography was always a side thing while I worked in corporate doing jobs I felt no connection to. Through Amanda’s course and personal guidance, I’ve learnt to value my skills and talent and that I absolutely CAN and SHOULD charge for my work, how to navigate dealing with difficult clients and when to say no. I’ve also developed the confidence to approach my ideal clients for work. Thank you Amanda! Had we not had that chance meeting I probably wouldn’t be pursuing my photography career to the extent I am today. ♥
