Photography is your dream — you want to capture images that will last a lifetime and tell stories that matter.

But how do you make that happen? How do you go from being an aspiring photographer to a successful photographer?

By this point, you’ve probably done it all — watched the YouTube videos, scoured the forum threads, followed industry leaders, devoured blog posts, and more trying to make your photography dream work. But with so many differing opinions, it can feel near impossible to figure out what’s right for you and your business, gain traction, and start really moving forward toward your dreams and goals.

What you need isn’t more DIY approaches of hobbled together advice from countless leaders across the industry.

What you need is a plan — a roadmap that will help you get from Point A to Point B and turn your dream into your everyday reality.

That is where Long-Term Mentorship comes in.

The Bearded Tog Long-Term Mentorship program is a full calendar year of personalized coaching and conversation about your business. We’ll assess where you are in business, where you want to be, and create a plan to get you there.

You’ll gain clarity and focus in your business, which leads to more revenue and — most importantly — more fulfillment.

I feel so much more confident in my business, my brand, and my shooting! In addition to the business talk, he put a camera in my hand (and his) and walked me through some difficult shooting situations I was struggling with.
