Hi. I’m Vicki.

I’m so happy to see you here

it makes my soul happy when i help photographers to find their style, ditch the overwhelm & gain bucket loads of inner-confidence 

 I know you’re feeling overwhelmed. Between all of the things you need to do – shooting, editing, marketing, admin – you can’t keep up and feel like you could be heading for burn out. 

There’s so much information out there and you don’t know where to start or who to listen to. You’re scared to market yourself in case no-one books. You know your prices are too low but you’re nervous to increase them in case it puts clients off. 

I know because I’ve felt all of these things in the past too. I’ll show you how you can create balance in your life, lose the overwhelm and fall madly in love with your photography business. 

You’re in the right place.

What I believe…

I believe that mindset should be your number one business tactic.

I believe that your business should work for you and not the other way round. 

I believe in using your strengths and passions to help you run your business in a way that’s unique to you – no ‘one size fits all’ advice here!

I believe in delighting our clients with an amazing experience so they come back year after year. 

 I don’t believe in ‘get rich quick’ strategies or hustling to build a six figure photography empire – this is about creating a profitable business that delights both you and your clients. 

I believe in big-hearted marketing – you won’t find any sleazy marketing tactics here! 

I believe in saying no to things to the things that don’t light you up, to make space for the things that do. 

 

Does this sound like you as well? Great! Check out how we can work together below. 

 

ABOUT ME

I’ve run my photography business since 2008 (yes through a global recession and a pandemic!) after a 10 year career in sales and marketing.

I run a joyful & thriving family & branding photography business in Surrey, UK. I’ve been training photographers since 2014 through my retreats, workshops, 121 mentoring and now online courses.

My work has been internationally published, I’ve spoken at Europe’s largest photography convention and I co-host the award-winning podcast for people photographers Shoot Edit Chat Repeat.

I’m fascinated by all things mindset – I’ve trained in NLP, I’m a certified Confidence Coach and I’m currently training in Positive Psychology.  I use all of this knowledge to help other photographers to ditch the overwhelm, tame the negative thinking and be filled with confidence in their work & themselves.

I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, 2 boys, 2 dogs, a cat (oh and some fish but they’re lower maintenance!

When I’m not shooting or training photographers, you’ll find me walking in the woods, sweating it out at a spin class, attempting a downward dog or giggling over a bottle of wine with friends.

My Story So Far

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN

After a 10 year career in sales & marketing, I got a Canon DSLR camera while I was pregnant. I quickly fell in love with photography and set up my photography business a year later.

THE NEXT STEP OF THE JOURNEY

By 2010 I was booked out months ahead, I started hosting photography workshops for parents and running booked out mini session mornings.

THE OVERWHELM

In 2011 I was overwhelmed and getting burned out. I had 2 young boys and a business that I loved but was struggling to keep up with. I knew I wasn’t making enough profit to justify the amount of hours I was putting into my business. I knew something needed to change.

BUSINESS SOUL-SEARCHING

2012 was when things changed for me. I invested in training, branding and a new website. I tripled my pricing and that was the start of a thriving photography business with less overwhelm and better balance in my life.

WHAT THEN HAPPENED

In 2016 I ran my first Delight Retreat for photographers and loved helping over photographers to beat the overwhelm and find the joy in their businesses too.

I was invited to speak at photography conferences and we launched the podcast for people photographers, Shoot Edit Chat Repeat in early 2018.

WHERE I AM NOW

Fast forward to 2022 and I now run a thriving family & branding photography business, co-host a top photography podcast and I help other photographers to fall in love with their businesses.
