Turn your photography business around today!
Are you a photographer who feels;
Like you have no work/life balance and you’re spinning too many plates?
That you lack direction and you’re not making progress?
That clients don’t value you creatively?
That your business is not profitable?
Imagine if tomorrow was a new day and from then, every client you worked with valued what you did creatively, respected your decisions and judgment, and paid you well for it.
Imagine if your business produced a profit that reflected your ability, your hard work, and enhanced your personal life.
You have probably imagined it, but what if you’re not sure how to get there?
I can help you.
Can you imagine tomorrow
not sure how to get there?
Feeling tired and over worked
Not being profitable
Poorly organised workflow resulting in arduous extra hours in post-production
Working with clients that don’t value what you have to offer
Feeling out of your depth in a client relationship situation
Sales and marketing
Frustration with the technical aspects of photography
Having to do so many weddings each year just to break even
Lack of time; which impacts on your personal relationships and leaves you with no time to yourself
Spending all your time working in your business and not ON your business
What do you struggle with?
I’m Adam Alex.
I’ve been a professional photographer for over 13 years, and I’m so grateful to have reached unbelievable heights in my career, from documenting some of the biggest weddings the world has ever seen, to gracing the cover of some of the world’s most luxurious magazines.
I’m a natural creative in every sense of the word. I’m animated, sensitive, emotional, expressive, I feel music (I don’t just hear it), and I daydream...a lot! My personality traits not only dominate my everyday existence, but they also form the framework of my brand.
But it’s not just about brand, it’s about what sets you apart from others.
What sets me apart in my market is my ability to tell a story, convey different emotions and ideas through images, and being adaptable enough to transfer my skills to very different conditions, while giving clients consistently strong content.
This has led to me being able to shoot many celebrity weddings, royal weddings, and destination weddings exclusively for 5 years and I’ve worked with some of the industry’s best.
It’s not all about talent however, it’s about hard work, humility, gratitude, and always having a goal to aim for.
I have fulfilled a big personal creative goal of mine, which was building a successful commercial photography business, and I’ve been commissioned to shoot campaigns for various global brands.
My commercial and wedding photography overlap one another in the form of fashion photography, and I have been the creative director and photographer on 5 cover shoots for the world’s most luxurious wedding magazine, Grace Ormonde.
My brides, commercial and fashion clients all benefit from my skills set and life experiences, and so can you.
I have inspired hundreds of photographers over the last 7 years, and I believe that the more people you help, the greater the success you have. This is why one of my passions is mentoring photographers and helping them to develop their own unique style, and build a successful business.
I’m aware of the pitfalls of running a business that is not underpinned by a clear vision and strategy, and that doesn’t play to your strengths as a photographer. I have had some amazing ups in my career, but there have also been some serious downs.
My many years’ experience of documenting people from all over the globe in my own way is a constant reminder of what it takes to succeed, and of the need to be unique.
This is me.
Adam Alex; mentor, photographer, visual artist.
What my clients say :
”When it comes to finding a photography mentor, there are loads of photographers that talk a good game, but Adam makes it happen. He has enabled me, coached me, given me honest and sincere feedback about my work, inspired me with work from pioneers to help me understand techniques, given me the confidence to share my work more openly and looked at my business model and sales techniques. Adam has bought me great results, both myself as a photographer and my business. My strength is my creativity, but I lacked in business structure with zero profitability. Adam picked up on this instantly and laid out a business strategy to help me be successful, allowing me to continue doing what I am so passionate about and grow a profitable business. I’m always thankful of you Adam, now and always.”
I was struggled with my business for many years and I knew I had to find a way to find that balance of being creative but also being in business. When I met Working with Adam gave me so many ideas about photography as a business and he made me see other potential avenues outside of weddings.
This confidence, along with a solid business plan we made allowed me to open a new studio in a middle of recession where I am now running this studio with my wife shooting newborns and families. Our turn over has increased massively and we are now more than profitable.
my WHY & my HOW:
I believe that being a mentor means ensuring that photographers that work with me feel inspired and comfortable enough to work together to set goals and work towards them in manageable stages.
When you work with me, the mentoring process is a mutual working relationship, where my ultimate aim is to help facilitate positive changes; from boosting morale, to improving creative output and profitability.
You’re investing in your own personal transformation.
The reason I want to offer mentoring is that I love to see someone grow, reach their goals, earn the money they deserve, and be more in control of their career and their life.
