What if you could pick up your camera; make $500, $1,000, even $5,000 a month and more; and create a career doing something you love?
How would that change your life?
|Imagine photographing a wedding. For one day’s worth of work, and a few hours of time, you can easily charge hundreds of dollars. With millions of weddings taking place around the world every year, there’s more than enough business for you!|
|Imagine photographing a portrait. Families change. Babies are born. Children grow up. There’s a ton of opportunity just waiting for you in the portrait marketplace!|
|Imagine photographing your vacation. Whether you have a time share in the mountains, or are venturing off to an exotic location, there's always a need for quality photography!|
From the Desk of Lori Osterberg
What if I told you it was easy to make money with your camera?
And what if I told you there’s a surefire way of making money with your camera, and it was easy to put into place … NOW! Would that get you excited about your future?
It’s absolutely true.
And I know, because I’ve been living the kind of lifestyle I’ve always dreamed of for the past 15 years.
While others were planning out 35 year careers working for corporate, I spent the time building up an amazing business right here in my home. While they spend an hour or more commuting to and from work each day, I happily drive my daughter to and from school, taking her to her clubs and sporting activities.
I’m not chained to a boss … I am the boss. I’m not chained to a desk or a computer … many days I spend outside in my gardens, reading and making plans for the future. I enjoy my monthly massages with my therapist Robin. And I enjoy my daily walks with my husband Andrew and our dog Dakota.
Best of all, I make a CEO-level income others only dream about. And I do it all working just a few hours per day! (No 60 hour work weeks for me!)
Yes, I absolutely love my life, and wouldn’t have it any other way. But I’ll have to admit, it wasn’t always that way.
From Barely Getting By, To
Zooming To The
Top Of The Photography Industry
Let me share a story with you. I didn’t start out as an entrepreneur. In fact, there wasn’t an entrepreneur bone in my body!
I come from a very traditional background. My dad worked and lived the corporate lifestyle. My mom stayed home with the 2 kids. Both my sister and I were taught the “work hard and you’ll succeed” theory. My life was all about stability. Work hard, get a good education, get a good job, and have a happy life.
So I went to school. Got the degree. Got a good job. And hated it.
Along the way, I also began learning from my Dad. I watched my Dad re-interview year after year for his job – a job he had been in for over 30 years! I watched him worry about making it to 55 – the age he could retire. Unfortunately my Dad never made retirement – he passed away from a heart attack three months short of his 55th birthday.
I learned a lot from my Dad. In fact, I accredit a lot of my entrepreneurial spirit to my Dad, even though he worked a corporate job for his entire adult life.
He gave me my strong work ethic, my ability to help others, and my desire to achieve as much as I could out of this life.
He also helped me realize a “job” wasn’t security.
In fact, a “job” is far riskier than creating your own business. Why would I want to depend on anyone else for my security, when I could create my own security?
And with that, my entrepreneur spirit was born. My husband Andrew and I started our photography business, on the side, part time. We knew its what we wanted to do. We had the desire to make it work.
So we worked on it after our full time jobs, and on weekends. We took on all types of photography assignments, and tried our hand at everything. Clients were few and far between, so we were willing to try it all.
Income? Well, lets just say we barely made enough to buy the camera equipment we needed.
After several years like that, we knew things had to change. We were exhausted, tired of working 7 days of the week. And with the phones not ringing, we were almost ready to hang up our camera bags for good. Then one day, we learned how we could tap into a huge lucrative market just by making a few changes to the things we were already doing.
And it made all the difference.
We worked hard. We learned a ton. And we watched it grow.
Year after year, we doubled and tripled our profits.
We created a business with a worldwide presence, even though it was just the two of us working out of our home here in Denver, Colorado.
We photographed weddings anywhere our clients chose to get married. We flew into some gorgeous locations, and witnessed some of the most spectacular events.
We truly grew our studio into a business most people can only dream of.
And that impact has carried us forward to where we are today.
Who Else Would Like to Have the Freedom to Travel
When You Want, Work When You Desire, And Get
Paid For Doing EXACTLY What You Love?
Let’s face it; some “jobs” are just more fun than others.
If you’re sitting behind a desk, working for the boss, living the corporate lifestyle at the moment, how much fun are you having?
What if you could fly off to exotic locations, photograph on white sand beaches for several days in a row, enjoy a few days with family and friends … and get paid for the entire trip!
What if you could spend several days in some of the most romantic locations on earth, sharing special days with a beautiful couple who truly value your work … and get paid hundreds or even thousands of dollars while doing it!
That’s the reality of many photographers today.
As a “working” photographer, you can set your own schedule, photograph any subject you choose, and live the type of lifestyle you may have thought belonged on the pages of a magazine.
Imagine renting a gorgeous beach house for a month on a sandy beach right in the middle of the Caribbean. Your days are filled with sightseeing, lying on the beach, and playing in the ocean waves. Each night you photograph one family portrait, creating a memorable experience for both you and your clients. Your rental is paid for. Your travel expenses are paid for. Your sightseeing and “extras” are paid for. And you head back home with more money in the bank than you came with.
Imagine journeying half way across the world for a few days of relaxation in a five start hotel. You snap a few pictures at the resort, on the beach, and at several local tourist areas. Once back home, you continue to sell those images again and again to a variety of sources.
It is possible - I personally know photographers who live each of these dreams. And make no mistake, they all realize they all are living lives most can only dream of. They love it, and wouldn’t have it any other way.
They all have used their photography to create an amazing lifestyle, one that gives them exactly what they want out of life.
The World Is Ready For You … What Would You Like To Photograph?
That’s the great thing about photography; there are dozens of ways to take pictures, and turn it into a solid income stream.
Take a look around you.
- Someone took the photograph in your favorite magazine.
- Someone took the photograph in your favorite catalog.
- Someone took the photograph hanging in your local restaurant.
- Someone took the photograph hanging in the art gallery.
- Someone took the photograph hanging above your neighbor’s fireplace mantle.
- Someone took the photograph your boss cherishes on his desk.
- Someone took the photograph from your niece’s wedding.
- Someone took the photograph in your favorite picture book.
Why can’t it be you?
The truth is IT CAN be you. And I’d like to show you how.
You see, it really is possible to turn your love for taking pictures into a money generating venture. No matter what type of photography you love, there is a way to make money at it.
Love scuba diving? Everything from scuba magazines to art galleries are looking for fresh new images to satisfy their readers and clients.
Love people? From portraits, to sports photography, to weddings and events, every day there are hundreds of ways for you to make money with your camera.
Love nature? What if you could spend hours each week doing exactly what you love – hiking through some of the greatest parks, gardens and forests of the world, capturing images you know are going to pay your bills every month AND build up a healthy bank account.
Are you getting the idea of the unbelievable amount of opportunity that exists with photography? This lifestyle is achievable. You can have it any time.
And you can too.
As Andrew and I built our business, and saw our profits double and triple, we also saw something else.
A ton of people that were looking to make photography more than a hobby or pastime.
Yet most were running into hurdles … roadblocks we recognized easily because we ran into them too.
So we teamed up to create a dynamite program to put all of our success techniques … plus proven strategies we’ve learned from hundreds of other successful photographers … into a one of a kind program: Photographing For Success, Freedom and Income. We knew there are thousands of other amateur photographers out there ready to begin making an income with their cameras, and we wanted an easy way for people to dive into this exploding opportunity.
As we were looking around at other programs already in the marketplace, we discovered some startling facts …
“Who are you going to trust, a salesperson …
… Or A True Professional Photographer!”
FACT: The great majority of online courses that show you how to make money as a photographer were written by business people, not photographers.
The other day I found another new course online promising “the secret path” to picking up a camera and making a ton of money in just a few weeks. Simply by purchasing his “59.97 ebook”, along with his 5 super special bonuses, he would show you how to become a well paid photographer virtually overnight. He would show you how to jump in and start making what the pros do just by following his 1-2-3 step approach.
Nowhere on the sales letter did he tell his story.
Nowhere on the sales letter did he include his name or his business name.
And he “signed” it with his first name only!
How can you trust a program like that?
Aren’t You Tired of the Frauds and Phonies?
You see, now is the time when “gurus” are surfacing like never before. Many have no experience what so ever in photography – they’re simply good at creating generic information they can pass along to you.
There are a couple of reasons for this:
1. Information is selling like wildfire online. It’s easy to write up a few pages of information, call yourself a “guru”, and move on to the next industry.
2. Photography is a passion for so many people! If you love photography, I’m sure you’ve dreamed of sailing away to far away ports to take exotic images. Or photograph the rich and famous. It’s what dreams truly are made of!
So of course business people are going to jump on this bandwagon, and ride it as far as they can. Why not make money selling something people really have a desire for?
Well I don’t know about you, but I’m fed up with all the smoke and mirror tactics out there. I’m sick of finding teachers who are out there teaching, but have never applied any of their tactics in the real world.
I’ve grown tired of all the heartless marketers out there promising its easy to become a professional photographer and you’ll make a ridiculous amount of money the first year you are in business.
Can it be done? Can you really make a comfortable living as a working photographer?
Here’s the Real Truth About Making Money
As A Photographer …
I know what you’re thinking. You love taking pictures, but can you really turn it into a money stream? You’re tired of working 40+hours per week for someone else, never knowing if your job will even be there a week from now. But can you really make money at photography?
Relax. Being a professional photographer is something anyone can do. If you already love photographing, understand how to use your camera, and have a desire to spend more time shooting pictures, than you have 80 percent of what it takes to become a professional photographer.
The other 20 percent can be learned. That’s why we’ve developed Photographing For Success, Freedom and Income to show you everything you need to know.
Not only that, it helps turn you into a top-quality photographer and business person, taking pictures for people who appreciate what you do AND are willing to pay good money for your time.
Believe me, when people see your energy, your work, and your passion for photography, they will be ready to pay you for your pictures.
Let’s Turn YourPassion …
Into $1,000, $5,000 or even more per month!
Have you ever looked at the definition of “passion”?
Passion means to have strong feeling or emotion towards something; an object of warm affection or devotion.
So to be passionate about photography simply means it’s something you would love to devote more of your time to, because you feel strongly about making it a part of your life.
Yet even if you are passionate about photography, you still may define your passion towards it in different manners:
- Some people are passionate about winning awards.
- Some people are passionate about creating works of art.
- Some people are passionate about making an impact on the world.
- Some people are passionate about making money.
- Some people are passionate about helping people.
- Some people are passionate about spending time with their family.
- Some people are passionate about traveling and seeing the world.
- Some people are passionate about doing what they love everyday.
Chances are you see yourself somewhere in these statements. You may even resonate with more than one of them. As a photographer, you can be passionate about what you do, and do it for a variety of different reasons.
For me, I love knowing I created images that would take my clients’ breath away. I love knowing my photography means so much to them, and will be a cherished part of their memories for the rest of their lives.
I love knowing I have created a business that provides for my family and me in an amazing way. I can travel when I want, work when I want, enjoy time off when I choose, and make a very good living doing exactly what I want.
So let me ask you a question. What’s your passion? What would make you so excited, you couldn’t wait to get up each morning?

Fire Your Boss!
Wouldn’t it be great to get up tomorrow morning without punching the alarm clock? You wake up on your own time schedule, have breakfast with the family, take the dog for a walk – you start your day in whatever way is perfect for you.
That’s the reality of working for yourself.
Yet I’m sure you’ve heard the nightmare stories of people who have started up a business, only to lose it all and end up back at the beginning after a few short months.
Is starting up a business really that difficult? Can you really do it?
The problem with most small business owners is they start out creating a “job” doing what their passion is, without realizing they also have to do the business side too. They continually work at the stuff they love, without working on the stuff they know little or nothing about.
And then they wonder why they fail.
Photography can be so much more. You probably already have a variety of camera bodies and lenses to start shooting with. Chances are you have a computer. And I know you have a strong desire to succeed.
Everything else can be learned.
This is a home business that can be started out of your living room. You can work and shoot out of your home. Or do like we did, and travel anywhere in the world you desire to go. Choice is yours. It’s all possible. It’s all up to you.
Start Living The Dream Life!
Every shoot brings in new opportunity. Every customer brings in new, exciting challenges.
I can work as much or as little as I choose. I can run the entire business by myself, or hire people to help out once in awhile. I can spend an afternoon at the movies with a friend. Or a week at the beach with my family. I can go to my customers. Or have them visit with me.
Best of all, I enjoy getting up in the morning, turning on my computer, and talking with people that truly love what I do. Not many can say that.
Okay. I hear you asking …
“This Is It! I’ve Found What I Want To Do.
But Can I Afford It?”
That’s a fair question. Now let me ask you: how much would you pay someone to find you a business that:
- Provides you with a templated model you can instantly apply, and begin reaping the rewards very quickly
- Shows you how to put together a dynamic plan that will start bringing in clients immediately
- Reveals tips that will help your business grow month after month, for as long as you choose to stay in business
- Illustrates how to become even better doing what you love … and helps your potential clients see the difference as well
- Plus provides tools and resources that will help you grow your business not just in your local community, but literally anywhere in the world?
If you were to decide on investing in a franchise, you could easily pay $50,000, $100,000 or more for their systems and trade strategies. If you were to hire personal consultants to help you set up the business, I’ll bet you’d quickly invest $25,000 or more. And in some cases, you would even end up paying a percentage of your profits every year as well.
Obviously you won’t pay anywhere near that for the Photographing For Success, Freedom and Income. You won’t pay $5,000 or even $1,000. Although for a business that could easily generate an extra $25,000 or more a year just for part time work, I’m sure you would agree its worth that and more.
That’s why you’ll be excited to learn how affordable we’re making this program.
Just $30 Can Get You Started …

Plus Two Additional Action Packed Strategies
You’re Not Going To Want To
I’m a firm believer in step-by-step plans. If you have to take the time to create something on your own, it may take months or even years to implement. But when someone hands you a step-by-step plan, it’s easy to get started immediately.
In addition to each of the modules listed above, I’m also including two extra modules you’re going to love. Marketing is such an in-depth concept, I ’ve devoted to modules to it. Honestly it is a lifetime skill. But even if you don’t want to be a marketing pro, there are things you can do in a systematic way that will ensure you are on the road to success. So after we talk marketing, I won’t just give you the overview and let you go. You’ll also receive my:
Step By Step Marketing Calendar
I’ve put together a calendar system to run my business, and have been using it for years to help me keep my business on track. It provides me with tips and strategies to organize and put together each month. I can’t imagine running my business without it. You’ll receive a peek into my calendar system. I’ll show you what I do, how I organize it, and give you the step-by-step plan to put your own calendar system into place.
I know business strategy is important. But its nothing if you don’t capture beautiful images that make your clients want to buy. When we talk about how to take better pictures, you also receive my:
Top Ten Posing Guide
I’ve asked many start up business owners what they need the most. And every time “help with posing” comes up at the top of the list. You’ll also receive our Top Ten Posing Guide, which will show you exactly how to pose your clients in easy ways sure to please. You’ll learn the techniques that make set up a snap, instant tips on how to build a better rapport with every client you photograph. Every time you snap the shutter using one of these strategies, you’ll know you have an instant best seller on our hands.
It’s So Much More
Than Just A Little Extra Income …
Think of all the things you’ve always wanted to do, but simply haven’t have the time or the resources to make it all come true.
Think of the things you’ve missed with your family because your work schedule wouldn’t let you be there. A missed play. An unattended game. All for the chance to work for a company that under-appreciates you, and that “generous” 2% raise each year.
I can’t imagine ever living the “corporate” lifestyle again. And thanks to the information I’m sharing with you in Photographing For Success, Freedom and Income I know many of you will begin making changes towards your own success too.
Here’s your opportunity to do something you’ve always wanted to do. Here’s your chance to ride the coattails of someone who’s “been there, done that” and follow them to success. You can make as much or as little as you choose. You can build a small income stream of $1,000 per month, and bring your family on an extra vacation this year. Or you can turn it into a $50,000, $60,000, or even $100,000 business, and truly fire your boss forever.
But please hurry. This is a new program we’ve just released, and we’re offering this as our Special Introductory Offer. It’s very likely we’ll be raising the price to reflect its true worth in the near future. I suggest you don’t delay, and join us today.
Imagine where you’ll be 6 months from now if you don’t.
And imagine where you’ll be 6 months from now if you do!
