“With any investment – it’s essential to gain a good return. Investing in yourself is one of the most important things that anyone can do. I’ve attended a few workshops with Brett Florens now and each one has given me a return on my investment far beyond what I had hoped. Putting certain elements into practice has not always been easy – but always very rewarding in the end. Brett’s direct approach is engaging and at times challenging – in order to improve yourself and your business this requires change and sometimes change can be hard, but also fun. Brett’s classes and workshops are intense, fun, engaging and a fantastic return on investment. There are many tips that are easy to introduce into your business, as well as some fundamental elements that are important – having faith and courage in yourself to charge what you are worth and be the best photographer you can be. If you look at Brett’s work – you’ll see that he stands out as a photographer who has a contemporary style with bundles of experience – which seems to be quite a rare thing in any artistic field. Many who tout their knowledge and experience are very good at the technical elements, yet they fail to keep up with the fashion and trends, Brett manages to be both technically adept whilst also staying current and up to date with style. I love Brett’s frank and straightforward approach as to the ‘how’ and the ‘why’ the business of photography is so important if you want to build a sustainable career in this industry. Brett’s ability to demonstrate techniques in the classroom, at the studio or on location is excellent – I’ve picked up simple hints and tips that now transform some of my images, as well as some fundamental tools that have helped change the way I approach customers and engage with them.”
It’s obvious that the more you invest in yourself, the more you will reap the rewards. For the past eight years I have endeavoured to impart as much valuable knowledge as I can to other photographers through my private mentoring sessions, workshops and seminars. After running my own business for over 20 years and having managed to enjoy a successful, sustainable photographic career, this knowledge comes from a passionate and hard-earned place.
I have developed a teaching strategy that both motivates and empowers my candidates to fulfill their potential as successful photographers. Sharing and teaching is just as rewarding for me as I believe it is for my clients. If you are willing to invest in yourself and your photographic career, I look forward to contributing towards attaining your dreams and goals
