I have just finished my One Year Mentor Programme with Emily, and can say without a doubt it is the best thing I have ever decided to do.

Within my first month of setting up my business I made sales of £900 from one photo shoot. I have gone from working in a job that had no real interest in, to the point where I am about to become a full time photographer.

I can say, hand on heart, that I would not be in this fantastic situation, with an up and coming profitable photography business, if I had not enrolled on her courses. I owe her an incredible amount and cannot thank her enough.”

I wish I had known Emily and Hannah all my life – their unbridled knowledge and enthusiasm for mentoring on the 1-year training programme has been epic. Not only that they have boosted my confidence personally and as a photographer. They have both been paramount in kick-starting my equine photography business and I thank them whole-heartedly for that. I wish I could keep them for life!

When they bring you into the Training Barn it feels like you’re in a bubble – they’re both warm, friendly and professional – it’s a safe haven for talking, listening and sharing ideas plus I have made some lovely friends along the way. It’s been a magical, emotional but hugely fun year.

Thank you so much, Emily and Hannah xx
