Have you ever wondered why Mc Donalds is the most successful “small business” on the planet?
They don’t sell the best burgers, their service sometimes lacks a little lustre and we know its bad for us but we still go there.
We as humans have made them the most successful franchise of all time despite the challenges we experience with the brand.

So why are they so successful?

Its simply because they have systems, accurate, detailed systems that someone, even with the least amount of business and life experience can follow simply, easily and incredibly effectively.

As photographers we are control freaks and most of us think that we have to do it all, no one can do our job better than us.
If thats where you’re at in your business and you have no spare time, not as much money coming in as you want, no family time, your running around like a maniac, spending hours in front of the computer
and that wonderful photography bug that was feeding your soul is now polluting your everyday and giving you brain damage, then I can help you change all that.

15 years experience in the industry and almost 1000 weddings means that I’ve made thousands of mistakes both in photography and in running a successful business.
I’ve been the maniac I mentioned above, I’ve been that photographer struggling with creative issues, I’ve even looked down the very scary barrel of going broke because I couldn’t get my shit together.
For you, this means I can show you all the ways and give you the knowledge to create the systems in your business to avoid all the mistakes I’ve made and many I haven’t.
