reSTARt : A Photography Business Makeover


Happy Monday, Internet! After a few months of brain-storming and dreaming up new ideas, I’m incredibly excited to announce I’m headed back to creativeLIVE…but we are raising the stakes because we’re changing the format and shaking things up! Beginning in January 2013, I’m taking a few photography businesses and reSTARting them for the new year! Over three months, I’ll work with photographers for a business makeover from the ground up…

The best news is this course is all about YOU. reSTARt will be a series of business makeovers with three in-studio participants, but online viewers can participate in depth as I’ll walk entrepreneurs through conducting client consultations, how to handle difficult correspondence, how to gracefully say no, how to create a branded studio, and how to shoot for your brand…and that’s just the first month!

JD and I have lots of surprises in store, but if you want to learn how to create a website reflective of you, grow your social media presence, and learn to shoot in nearly impossible situations, then you won’t want to miss what we have planned for February either! We’ll complete this free three-month course in March with new websites, a stronger brand, and strengthened technical ability behind the lens.

If you’d like to join me in-studio, just follow the directions in the video and submit your submission no later than November 26, 2012. If you’d prefer to participate online with this FREE photography course, you can register HERE.

Happy Monday and if you’re interested in checking out my past creativeLIVE photography courses, you can do so here. Hope to see you soon! And many, many thanks to Steve with Threaded Films for making this promo…he’s so awesome to work with!

    Oh My Goodness…I cannot even begin to tell you how much I would love to take part and be one of the brands that you makeover. I’ve been working on a re-branding here but I feel so lost in so many ways. I have some of the details sorted but others I keep changing. I need some serious help!

    I wish you guys weren’t doing this on the other side of the continent. Right now even if I was chosen I don’t know how I would manage to get myself there each month from London, Ontario, Canada

    I can’t wait to watch this series and get some guidance for my own business renovation.

    I would love to see you do up a post on how to get started, questions to think about, and how to get the best info so we can be prepared to take what we learn from you and run with it in our own businesses…

    Thanks for being a STAR Jasmine! I think you’re fabulous!

    I love that you share your success with others. Is the submission only for those who already have a photo business? Or can those of us who just want to get into the photo business enter?

    Hi Jasmine! What are your thoughts on a children’s photographer from Boston possibly submitting a video? I have found your thoughts on business to be soo helpful in my first years. Thank you 🙂

    Do you have to already have a successful business up and running to enter? I live in the Seattle area and have been trying to start up my AshaMalika Photography for a year- but have been unsuccessful – So does my business have to be "well known" to enter? Thanks for the opportunity!!!
