Have you ever wondered...
- Why talented photographers often struggle to get consistent paid work while relatively mediocre photographers (like myself) can easily command a 6-figure salary
- How photographers can get agency models (who normally charge $150-$300/hr) to shoot with you for $20 (or less) and how to guarantee they will not flake out on you
- How to get access to amazing venues for photo shoots - the Plaza Hotel, Langham Place Fifth Avenue, the Knickerbocker, the Ritz Carlton, etc - places that normally charge up to $2000/night for as little as $15/night
At Expressions Glamour Club, we are passionate about helping portrait photographers turn their talent and passion into a consistent, recurring revenue by giving them all the tools they need to build a profitable, six-figure photography business:

STATE-OF-THE-ART SALES TRAINING
One of the biggest barriers to portrait photographers making the level of income they deserve from their work is lack of experience or training in sales. Unfortunately, it is not your talent in editing, your ability to take beautiful pictures or create remarkable images that gets you paid. It is your ability to sell.

To make money in photography, you cannot just do what worked in the past. I learned this the hard way:
In March of 2014, I lost my father. And, shortly after, in 2015, when Target Pharmacy was bought out by CVS, I lost my "stable" 6-figure job as a Target pharmacist. From this, I learned two things:
1. There is no such thing as a "stable" job. The most dependable and financially sound thing you can do is to work for yourself
2. Life is short. You are not guaranteed anything. You can live your life (unhappily) doing what others tell you to do, or you can carve out a new direction, doing what you love
Instead of trying to find another job as a pharmacist, I decided to give myself a chance to pursue my dream of becoming a professional photographer.
Long story short, over 6 months, I lost a lot of money, spending way too much on Facebook ads and failing to generate any consistent business. So I decided to spend the next 4 months shadowing financially successful photographers, doing their "bitch work" in exchange for an opportunity to learn how they ran their businesses. From that, I learned these valuable lessons:
1. It is absolutely possible to make $250,000+ / year from photography. In fact, the most financially successful photographer I shadowed has made over $20 million every single year over the last 8 years of her photography career.
2. The most financially successful photographers earn the vast majority of their money via passive income, thru membership sales, online sales of digital photography training programs, etc. This allows them to make far more than the average photographer, even while working less than 4 hours a day, for only 3 or 4 days a week - whereas most photographers who struggle financially have no clue on how to make passive income via photography or, more commonly, have no idea what the term "passive income" means
3. The most financially successful photographers spend the vast majority of their time concentrating on sales because they know that it is sales that generate their income, not pretty pictures - whereas most photographers hate thinking about sales and prefer to spend most of their time editing, shooting, and/or dreaming about becoming rich and famous
4. The most financially successful photographers are aware that, due to the fact that DSLR technology has become so cheap and readily available, there are more photographers than ever in the history of mankind. Instead of fretting about increased competition, all of the successful photographers I shadowed found ways to make this into an advantage by selling TO photographers (everything from $5000 lighting workshops to $400/month online access to digital photography training programs, etc)
5. The most financially successful photographers EMBRACE rejection, instead of running away from it. They realize that that more "no's" they get, the more "yes's" they will achieve. They don't worry about batting average. They worry about getting the word out about their products and services to as many people as possible, to give themselves the largest chance for success.
Taking these lessons I learned, I built Expressions Glamour Club from nothing to over $100,000 in revenue in less than 8 months, and I've helped many photographers do the same.
So, are you ready to make your first $100,000 or $200,000 from photography?
Are you ready to make some serious cash shooting models YOU want to shoot in venues YOU want to shoot at, on a schedule that YOU choose?
The truth is, as Henry Ford has said:
Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.
Think about that. Now, you may be a bit skeptical. You may feel a little bit of fear. And, that is a good thing.
The most important thing is to think clearly (without overthinking and "paralysis by analysis") and take action despite your fears.
Am I committed to learning the skills it takes to succeed financially with my photography business on a massive level?
Am I willing to make establishing a 6-figure photography business the SOLE priority in my life for the next 4-6 months, so I can live the rest of my life comfortably, doing what I truly love and making the world a better place via my art?
Am I willing to do WHATEVER IT TAKES (within the law) to succeed, even if it means that, for a couple months, I may have to forfeit a little sleep and or live more frugally than I'm usually used to living?
If your answer to all three questions is a definitive "YES!" let's talk. (If it's not, it's probably better for you to just give up now before you waste your time - because if you aren't fully committed to doing whatever it takes to succeed, you have NO CHANCE)
