REVIEWS FROM PAST STUDENTS:
"I chose to be a silent student as I didn't know how much time the class would take and whether I could juggle it with the rest of my life. I got so much out of the Business of Photography class even though I wasn't an active participant. Reading other class members questions and watching Jenn's feedback was extremely helpful. The information provided by Jenn in the video's and written notes covered so many topics which were relevant to my business and I look forward to implementing changes to my business as a result of the class."
"Jennifer is so great. This has been the best business class I have taken. She gave practical, useful, creative ideas to things I had been struggling with. I've already put many of her ideas in motion and am looking forward to getting started on the other."
"It was easy to find each lesson, each discussion, each video but it was a little tricky keeping up with following all the discussions. You had to remember to visit each person's page or each lesson's page and once a lesson was over, I found people didn't go back much."
"This class is a must for anyone who is starting out in business or struggling with how to appeal to your ideal client. In this over-saturated market you need a way to stand out from the crowd. Jennifer makes herself available all class with her prompt answers and no questions are off limits. Her honest and on point feedback was invaluable. I loved the video feedback not only on my submissions but on my classmates as well. Many times I found myself laughing out loud at Jennifer's funny comments. This class was phenomenal and I cannot recommend this enough."
"No matter how new or seasoned of a photographer you are, I truly feel that everyone would benefit from the Business of Photography. I had so many lightbulb moments and breakthroughs, even after 9 years in business, that are already showing to be huge game changers for me! Jenn didn't just hand us the answers, she really helped us discover them in personal ways that made sense for each of us and the type of businesses we want to run. My confidence level in myself and my business has done a complete 180 and I can't thank Jenn enough!"
"I've attended a handful of workshops in person but The Business of Photography was the first online workshop that I've attended so I really didn't know what to expect. I was blown away by the first assignment and the personalized and detailed feedback that Jenn left for each of the attendees. It continued that way for each assignment. Jenn was a wealth of information and was able to offer an objective opinion in a way that was straightforward but was also very encouraging. I feel like it will be much easier to be intentional in my business, the way I shoot, the stories I tell, and how I share it. I cannot recommend this workshop enough."
"Jenn is a natural teacher, raw, real and honest just like her work. I left BOP with a long to-do list, but I have never felt more ready to fully launch my own business as I do now. Jenn paints a clear picture of what needs to get done to get down with this photography hustle! By the end of our session, my confidence improved, and I felt like a part of an extremely strong and supportive community. The talent present in the course by all participants was inspirational and I've noticed a clear shift in my work as a result of being a part of it. I recommend this class to anyone who is ready to get serious and take their biz to the next level. The bonus assignment at the end of class was a genius addition and left me feeling refreshed, as it brought me back to what matters the most- our vision and our craft. Thank you!"

"This class was invaluable to me! Jennifer gave me such clear, straightforward and honest guidance and made me feel confident that I am on the right track with getting my business off the ground. She was so thoroughgoing through all the elements of my business - from social media sites to my pricing to marketing. Her video lessons and feedback are great - they totally make the class personal, and I love her no-nonsense, tell-it-how-it-is personality! This class was exactly what I needed. Thank you Jenn!"
"After being in business for three years and not having any marketing background, it was time for me to take a class on running my company. I needed help on how to run a successful photography business and I needed someone who was going, to be honest, and raw with me, I did not need any sugar coating. I took Jennifer's Taking Care Of Business class and I can't speak highly enough about how wonderful it was.
From day one she was honest and real and not afraid to hurt my feelings. She really wants to see you succeed and that shows in the love and honesty she puts into this class. Thank you SO much Jennifer for an amazing class. I learned so much and I feel like I have a wonderful foundation to now build on. I would also highly recommend taking the active seat rather the silent. It made such a difference to be able to talk with other students and have feedback from Jennifer on a regular basis."
"I am a photographer who is comfortable with my skill set but needed a lot of guidance with my pricing, marketing, and overall business practice. Basically, I needed some motivation and that is exactly what I got. I could tell Jen really had an interest in making my business better and her no-nonsense, straightforward approach to teaching really gave me a solid foundation to move forward. This class was all I expected and more, I only wish it had been longer! You can't go wrong with this class, it is well worth the time and money you will invest."
"This class is a perfect diving board into the big pool of running a business. Each week breaks the big topic into manageable tasks that equip and challenge you to create the business model that works for you. Jenn is great at sharing her missteps and how they helped her in her process. Jennifer gives straightforward feedback that propels the student to refine their business to operate professional and with success. Each class participant can easily feel like they are the star of the show with the time and dedication she gives each of her students in this class. I can not recommend this class enough."
"If you are on the fence about whether or not this class is for you, just take the plunge. I promise you won't be sorry. I went into it thinking I was in over my head because I'm just starting out and I am walking away with so much information to start my business off right from the start. I can't say enough wonderful things about Jenn and her teaching style. I love that she is very matter of fact and tells it like it is. Your honesty is very much appreciated. Jenn really wants us to succeed and that comes thru loud and clear. I loved everything about this class. I look forward to learning more from you in the future."
"Straightforward, honest, informative and supportive. Jennifer has a gift for getting straight to the point in helping you create or adjust your business. The tools and steps she lays out help students at any level get their business in shape. Thoroughly enjoyed and benefited from her expertise."
"This class was AMAZING. I needed so much guidance as to how to redirect my business. I had no one to guide me and it's much harder than you would expect. She takes you step by step and does not overwhelm you with information. I actually know what needs to be done going forward to make my business what I want."
"Jennifer lays bare all her business experience in TCOB, her successes and early mistakes, as she covers ALL the big topics in being a professional photographer. I appreciated her honesty and straightforward approach enormously. I'm already implementing some of the ideas/lessons taught in the course in my own business and look forward to running a more productive, consistent business."
"This class was challenging, inspiring, and useful. If you are just starting out, a year into your business, or switching gears, this class is a must-take. The class is totally personalized to its participants; it is not a regurgitation of materials and feedback from other classes. Of course, the class is chock-full of great information, but the thing that really makes the class amazing is Jenn. She is knowledgeable, humble, inspiring, straight-forward, and more responsive than any instructor I've had before (and that's with a new baby on her hands ... this woman must have a cape hidden under her shirt!). If you are considering this class, TAKE IT and take it full-participation."
"If you are in business or looking to go into business Jennifer's course will tell you everything you need to know to set it up for success. It will save you time and energy and focus you on what you need to get all your ducks in a row. It is jam-packed with what you need to know and do to make it today's market."
