UNDERbooked and underpaid?

THEN THIS MIGHT JUST BE YOU... 

✔️ Are you struggling to find paying clients? (it's always let's “let’s collab!” but never "send me the invoice")

✔️ Are you struggling to have clients pay your full rate? (or worse they ghost you all together!)

✔️ Are you struggling with how to price yourself, especially when it comes to shooting for brands? (umm licensing, wth is that!?)

✔️ Are you feeling STUCK because you aren’t photographing work you really love? You crave work where you can express your TRUE artistic vision. 

✔️ Do you desire to start working with brands and clients you love but don't have a clue where to start?

I AM READY

You deserve to have your creative power back.

I am sharing my signature framework that has allowed me to scale from $300 to $8,000+ commercial clients.

Ready to go from Starving Artist to Creative CEO?

IMAGINE THIS:

⚡️ clients sliding in your DM’s ready & excited to work with you

⚡️ seamlessly having systems in place for dream clients to book you with ease

⚡️ living an ABUNDANT artist’s life (no starving artists here)

⚡️ being a PROLIFIC photographer 

i'm ready, let's do this

❌ the photographer that is still learning how to use the basics of your camera (iso, shutter speed, aperture, shooting in manual —we won't be going over the basics in this program.)

❌ the photographer who is not going to show up and do the work it takes to take their biz to the next level.

think you can DIY your photography knowledge from YouTube?
you are taking bits & pieces of knowledge  & don’t know how to put it all together. this program gives you a clear, step by step action plan and next-level coaching support.

still have questions?

I am primarily a wedding/portrait photographer, can I still benefit from this program?

Yes, while we do focus on commercial industry specific topics, we believe in order to be a PROLIFIC photographer you must be ready to navigate any short of client type. All principles taught in the  program can be translated to all niches of photography. 

I don’t live in a major city like LA or NY, will I still be able to implement knowledge from this program?

Yes, you can be based anywhere in the world and implement the strategies in this course! We touch on how to work with clients/brands remotely as well as how to understand and cater to your unique local market. 

Who is this program for?

The Prolific Photographer Program is for the beginner to intermediate photographer who wants to take their passion of photography and turn it into a full time, six-figure photography business working with brands. You are ready to go ALL IN and put in the consistent effort required to achieve those results. You are ready to dedicate 5-10 hours per week to furthering your education and implementing the strategies presented during the program. 

Who is this program NOT for? 

The Prolific Photographer Program is NOT for the photographer who is still learning the basics of how to use their camera or the photographer who wants a “get rich quick” or shortcut to success without doing the work required to build a successful business. The Prolific Photographer Program will give you all the tools and techniques required to build a 6 figure photography business, but you must be willing to put in the work. 

I don’t know how to work a camera yet. Does this program cover how to work your camera?

Unfortunately, this course does not cover the basics of how to use your camera or the technical aspects of shooting. A basic understanding of shooting in manual mode (ISO, Aperture & Shutter Speed) is required. 

What if I buy this program and realize it’s not for me?

Due to the digital nature of this program, NO REFUNDS will be available. If you have any questions or concerns about the program, please connect with us at hello@sunroomschool.com.

Will I have homework or assignments during this program?

Yes, each training will end with action steps or homework assignments that you will be able to submit for direct feedback from Kayla. This ensures you are actually implementing all the strategies presented in the program so you can achieve the results!

What gear or software is required to complete this program?

We suggest all students have access to a working computer, camera, lenses as well as access to editing software such as Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Other programs will be suggested during the program and up to students discretion to implement.

my photography journey

I know what it feels like to be the underdog trying to break into an industry where there is SO much gatekeeping of knowledge especially when it comes to working in the commercial industry.

Six years ago I was biochemistry college student with ZERO connections in the industry. Fast forward to now:

✔️ I am a 6 figure commercial photographer
✔️ Living in my dream apartment in DTLA
✔️ Working with globally recognized brands
✔️ Traveling all over the world from Ethiopia to Indonesia for work

It’s not because I have thousands of IG followers or because I live in a major city, but because I did the mindset work required, employed the business & marketing strategies and mastered the 
art of building my portfolio to attract my ideal client.
