"I just finished The Art of Creating An Ambassador Team and I have to say this course was a game changer!! Heather does a brilliant job of explaining exactly what you need to do from top to bottom to create a successful Ambassador Program! This course is worth every penny and she should probably charge more!   She’s so motivational with the enthusiasm she has inside the course. I love that the course was packed with useful information. I have to say with other courses I have taken in the past I felt like the instructors went on and on before they ever got their point across. This is definitely not the case with Heather. She explains everything in detail without wasting any time. I have wanted to start an Ambassador Program for years since I have been a successful senior photographer for over 15 years now. However, I never knew quite how to get started. After taking this course, I’m so excited to start my Ambassador Program. I now feel I am well equipped to have a successful program! Thanks Heather!"

"Heather has been taking photos for us since my youngest was born.  She always captures the most special moments, even with a crazy toddler!  She always has the best ideas for photos but is also interested in hearing our ideas as well. She is so good with the little ones of all ages, and always makes us feel comfortable in any situation.  The end results are always better than we hoped for!"

"you simply must book her today! no regrets!

kind words from past STUDENTS

"While I have owned my own photography business for over eight years, I know for certain that in this business, you are always learning and growing and pivoting. The photography business has changed so much since I began, and I felt I needed the assistance of someone I knew who had successfully been doing all of these things and more.

During a handful of in person sessions with Heather, she asked me questions that I had not even thought about asking myself. She not only reviewed some of the basics with me, she also pointed me in the right direction to start down a more focused path to become a more successful photographer and business owner. She is not only a great communicator and teacher, she is also a great friend! "

"I really appreciate all the help Heather has been to me since I first started out with my photography business. She has mentored me as far as using different settings on the camera as well as different ways to edit my images to really make a difference. In addition, all the encouragement Heather has given me to pursue my photography business over the years has been invaluable.

She has also helped steer me in the right direction with marketing myself better through the use of social media. I’m very grateful for all the help Heather was to me in mentoring me recently in creating my own website. She was an excellent instructor that took the time to make sure it turned out the way I wanted it to. I love the results!!

Heather has been invaluable to me over the years with great advice that has helped my business be a success. "

i cannot wait........

My goal in these courses is to help you see that Dance Photography is a beautiful collaborative effort between two artists.  The dancer brings the art and technique of dance while you bring the art and technique of photography - an exchange of ideas and information creates a new art medium - Dance Photography.

My hope for you is that these dance photography courses are one part understanding photography, one part understanding dancers and movement, and one part inspiration and motivation!  My goal for you is to "always look for beautiful light and beautiful moments, prompting them when necessary and capturing them as authentically as possible" in your own unique way. You are here to make a beautiful impact!

I truly want you to experience the beauty, the healing, the life-fulfilling journey that photography has become for me and those around me. I will show you my exact methods and framework that I used to build my  photography business to what it is today. 

I look forward to going on this journey with you inside "The Art of  Dance Photography".
