Hi I'm Mary Trantino, the founder of the Photography Business Academy. I founded the Academy with one clear vision - to revolutionise the portrait photography industry by helping photographers be valued, rewarded and absolutely loving what they do. I do this by creating systems for your business model, marketing and service delivery to gain confidence as a photographer AND a business person.
LET ME EXPLAIN...
The Photography Business Academy provides coaching for creative photographers who perhaps struggle with the business side of their business. AND THAT'S OK! You're the photographer. But we're not all born with the business skills to run a successful business as well as being great photographers.
