Portrait and Wedding Photography Coaching with Susie Linquist
Are you a photographer looking to stay inspired, work less hours, and fully support your lifestyle while following your passion? Do you need a push in the right direction? Someone to guide you on things like pricing, sales, workflow? Do you need some guidance in the mental arena, too? I am a firm believer that we can have the business and lifestyle we want, if we just have a little focus, and a lot of drive. I’m Susie, and I’m here to inspire you, motivate you, and share all my tricks of the trade I have spent the last 15 years learning. These tricks are photography related, as well as keeping the right mental perspective to achieve our goals.
I have been a professional photographer since 2004 after graduating with a degree from Kent State University. I have been photographing weddings for 12 years, in Ohio, California, and now North Carolina. Since then I have mentored many photographers, and it is so fun to watch them grow into not only artists, but successful entrepreneurs, as well. I love photography, but I also LOVE business, and I love helping people make a living doing something they love. I can still hear my dad on repeat saying to me “Find something you LOVE, and find a way to make money at it.” For me that was photography, and if that is your thing too, I would love to help you take your skills, or your business, to the next level!
