Selina Maitreya is a a photo consultant. She has been one for the last 30 years. Want to know how to approach your business? She's got answers. Ever had trouble editing your images down and showing your clients the very best? Yes, she can help. Are you looking for a mentor who can guide you through some murky business waters? She's the one.
Selina has authored two very popular books: Portfolios That Sell: Professional Techniques for Presenting and Marketing Your Photographs and How to Succeed in Commercial Photography: Insights from a Leading Consultant
She charges $300 an hour and for good reason, too. She is good. No, very good at what she does. But for a photographer who is just starting to set up her or his business, her consulting fees can add up fast. So, Selina brainstormed and came up with The View From Here, a nine-hour, 12-chapter series of MP3 recordings that covers all that you may be looking for and more.
As I listened to her, I found myself furiously taking notes as she gently outlined for me (and yes, it does sound like she is speaking with and not to me) the steps any photographer must take to be successful in this industry. Let me correct that … steps any photographer must take to THRIVE in this industry. Now, as a documentary wedding photographer, I have certain take-aways that may differ from someone who is a photojournalist or a commercial photographer. I say, make it your own. However, the business foundation for all genres of photography is nearly identical. Start by setting specific goals, have an incredible product to offer and create honest and meaningful relationships with your clients.
“The View From Here – it's priceless! I am getting the real time coaching from Selina in whatever topic I select to consult or learn how to continue growing my photography business.” Raymundo, Ohio
In full disclosure, Selina generously gifted the entire set of MP3 audio files for me to check out and review here on Tiffinbox. But as I have said before, if a product I am writing about doesn't meet my high standards for quality or it will not elevate my business (and subsequently yours), I won't review or even mention it.
Selina has clearly put her heart and soul into this project and I know you will get tremendous value out of it. I know it is the beginning of a new year. Do yourself and your business a favor and consider buying The View From Here today! Use the code: FOSSES to get it for only $99 (original price is $199). See, I am also committed to finding you the very best offers out there that will help your bottom line!
If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to post them below. I would love to hear from other photographers who have bought the program from Selina, listened to it and can share what they have learned from her.
