Being a Photographer and a Photography Business Coach, Mark understands there are many options in learning and education. You could download a course, do a workshop or go to a conference and learn the skills to implement on your own. You could even hire a coach, however long term coaching (minimum 6 – 12 months) can be too much of a big investment or commitment for some.
Don’t you wish you could just sit down with someone who is an expert in their field, who’s been there and done that, and get the answers you are looking for in the topic that you are stuck on? This is exactly why Mark has developed “Sprint” photography business courses.
So, what is a “Sprint” photography business course? It’s a specialised photography business short course designed with one objective in mind – to get you the results you are looking for in the quickest and most effective way. Mark will personally take you step by step through the course to ensure that you gain a great understanding and that you achieve the outcome you are looking for.

This is my favorite and most practical sprint course we have. Just like a wheel of a car your business need to be a well rounded and balanced machine to maximize the clients experience with therefore create greater sales. Why are some photographers so successful but sell average photography, while other brilliantly talented photographers can’t get a client to save themselves? This is because the experience is just as important as the photography itself! We will look at the 8 areas of the clients experience in detail and give you lots and lots of practical tips and walk away with a workbook and unique minimum 24 point check list to do for you and your studio.
Is your photography business working effectively to run like a well oiled machine? If you got 100 leads today, would you have an organized system, a CRM that you know how it works and actually know what to do with them all? Are you giving your clients the right information at the right time to help them make the right choice that you are the right photographer for them? In this class we are going to set yourself up for the win with every client. Just like a successful franchise business, lets get the house in order.
When your photographing your clients are you shooting blind or are you going in with the finished product in mind and a plan? Or are you just shooting lots of pretty images hoping they will like some at the end that they would like to buy? This is where we have to educate them every step of the way to shoot with purpose, get specific. You dont want to get into the design room and have to turn to them and ask? “So…what would you like to do with the images?” you have totally missed the point.
The preshoot questionnaire is designed to help educate your clients about your experience, get them to outside the box and help set you up to shoot to sell with the end product in mind. Sometime when we talk on the phone they only mention the key elements that they are after EG: wall art in living room. But sometimes they are after more and for some reason its not brought up in conversation. The pre shoot questionnaire is designed to make sure no stone is left unturned and all ideas on are on the table. Plus then its a great selling tool in the design room!!!
I’m going to help you stand out in the crowd, get people talking about you and stay top of mind. There are so many ways to market these days.

If you ask any successful photography business they will tell you that you need a minimum of 5-10 marketing strategies going on at any one time.
If superman was photographer, the phone would be his kryptonite! Photographers run from the phone like it’s the plague. The main reason is that they don’t know what to say and when to say it. You don’t need a big script, or massive check list. You just need to make sure you cover the two major components “Practical and emotional” Part of the conversation and then I’m going to give you about 10 questions that you can ask to keep a conversation alive for hours (if you wanted to) Best to practice on your partners and kids. its alot of fun. The take you through how to answer the “how much is…..?” question. As you know you make a client from the first phone call, lets get this working for you asap!
This Class is alot of fun. There is a saying in sales “Always be closing” You need to make sure that you are talking the language that your client understands to close the sale and get them to the next stage of the experience. These skills can be used at every single step… getting the booking on phone call, learning to shoot to sell in the session, making a decision in the design room, etc. The list goes on and on. We normally use about 4-5 closing styles. Just imagine the potential of knowing all 13. (This is awesome to practice on your kids!!!)
