Here’s just a few of the success stories from our members:
Michael Gauthier was approaching 60 when he realized that he was tired of his job... but he also couldn’t retire. So he started looking for an alternative. With no experience behind him, he dove into photography. He started taking photos for a local newspaper. Then he branched out to weddings... little league... community events, and more. Now he’s able to quit his old job and take on photography as a full-time pursuit.
Lisa Miller didn’t ever think she could sell her photos. With an adventurous personality, she loves to travel, meet new people, and have impactful life experiences. She also loves taking photos of beach scenes in her hometown in Connecticut. So she decided to try selling them in her local frame shop and was thrilled when she sold over 20 prints in a matter of months – at $225 to $375 each! She also regularly enters and wins local photo contests. With a daughter in college, the extra income definitely comes in handy.
Deborah Kolb loved photography from the beginning. But she pursued other ways to make a living. Eventually, though, her artistic side yearned to come out. She discovered her love of photographing people... and started submitting her photos to stock sites. She just surpassed her first $10,000 in stock photo income... And has started a lucrative side-business taking boudoir photos. On top of all this, she and her husband just got back from Fiji, where Islands Magazine sent her on vacation for winning their “Best Readers Photos of 2013” contest with a photo she took on one of our workshops!
Kristen Bentz loved taking photos on vacation from her 9 to 5 job. People always told her she took great photos, but she didn’t think anything would come of it. On vacation, she sold some photos of a cruise she took to another passenger... and thought maybe she really COULD sell her shots. Then one day lightning struck... literally. She started photographing lightning near her home and loved it. She learned how to sell her shots and went on to make $6,200 in just one weekend at a craft fair. Things have snowballed for her from there. She’s branching out into shooting headshots... she’s gotten her start in stock... and she now knows she can make $2,000-$6,000 in a single weekend when she needs extra cash. What great peace of mind that is.
