The next Business and mindset Mastermind starts in January 2024!

Many photographers struggle with the business side, I was one of them, but without solid foundations, focus and clarity overtime we can feel lost in our business, feel like frauds, struggle to make it work and then fall out of love with our business.

We can often let our imposter syndrome stop us in our tracks and stop us from doing what we want to do.

Specifically with photographers in mind, this 6 month programme will be a live online meet once a month, it will also be recorded.

Each Month we will be covering some of the following, values, mindset, client avatar, customer journey, your pitch, price lists, literature, where you sit in the market,  marketing, speaking to your ideal client and much more.

This is not a quick fix, there will be tasks and this is something you will work on throughout the course of your business. You get out of this what you put in. This is not for you if you just want quick answers and are not prepared to work on you and your business.

This is for you if you are a photographer of any genre and want a refined business with focus and clarity.

I’ve had several 1:1 training sessions now with Deana over the years. Each time I’ve come away inspired to learn, ready to improve and practice my craft. Deana’s unique and patient teaching method means she explains and demonstrates everything so clearly. She ensures you totally understand a topic before moving ahead to the next. No question is too simple and Deana repeatedly answers every one without judgement. My work has definitely improved under Deana’s mentorship. I’m now confidently charging customers my worth and enjoy continued refresher course with Deana. She is a talented, friendly and gifted teacher. Thank you Deana.

Brilliant trainer and photographer! Absolutely lovely lady , very patient and understanding. She knows A LOT about photography and twice as much about babies ! Couldn’t recommend her enough x


On the 6th of October I did a two day 1:1 training session in Deana’s studio. I was a complete beginner and was very worried that I wouldn’t understand any of it. I had never photographed a newborn before and had only just picked up a camera. Deana’s training session was everything I needed and more ! Deana gave me the confidence to not only photograph my first ever newborn during the training but to then go on and start my own photography business. Deana was a fabulous teacher, very calm, supportive, easy going and if I was ever unsure of anything she would always find another way to explain. Deana went up and beyond to help me find the confidence to make my dreams become a reality. Before this training, I felt every overwhelmed and lost, I now know what I need to do and I how to do it. I would highly recommend Deana to anyone who’s thinking of becoming a photographer or needs that little confidence boost

Thank you! I’ve never done a course like that before so I had no idea what to expect but you explained everything so clearly. I learned so much and my head is now buzzing with ideas. Now I’ve just got to work out what to do first!! xx
