Ready to step up your game?

I fully believe that education is the most important aspect to photography. It does not matter what equipment you have if you do not have the knowledge to use and create with it. In addition to the many classes I have been asked to speak at and the Michigan Photographer Facebook group I run (here), I also offer different Mentorship opportunities. If you have any questions or would like to book one of these highly-sought after opportunities, please e-mail me at


April 12th, 2019. In person hands-on Portrait, Lighting and Business Course in Amber's own studio

 April 12th is our all inclusive Portrait Photography and Business course!

In the morning you will learn corrective posing and guiding your clients to make them look their best, both male and female. We will also teach you how to use creative lighting to help your subject shine bright and make your images pop. Natural light, strobes, reflectors, and more.

After lunch we will resume and talk about the 'scary side' of photography - making money! How do I find clients, what type of client is ideal, how do I price myself to make a profit, how do I compete with the cheaper photographers in my area? There IS a method to running a successful studio and it begins with the value you bring to your clients, coupled with price.

Each class is $299 separately, or sign up for both morning and evening for $445.

Limited seats available for this one-on-one course.
