I absolutely love coaching photographers! Whether you just bought your camera yesterday or have been in business for years, I am a completely open book! The best part about one-on-one coaching is it's completely tailored to YOU. You'll fill out a questionnaire prior to your arrival that will give me insight into you, your business, and your unique challenges. When we meet, it’s a very relaxed “ask me anything” style environment. Coaching is hosted at my home office (in Bridgewater, NJ) where we have easy access to my desktop for showing spreadsheets, programs, and anything else that may assist you as you grow your business!

PRICING & OPTIONS

PRICING & OPTIONS

 
 
 

I offer half day and full day options. In our experience, the half day is best suited for photographers with targeted goals. You know exactly where you need help! The full day option is great for newer photographers who don't know where to start or for more in depth business coaching. Some topics take more time than others to teach, so if you are unsure which option is best for you, shoot me an email: cassi@cassiclaire.com!

“Cassi is one of the most supportive, encouraging mentors in the biz, and I highly recommend her coaching services for photographers of any level. She is so kind and patient, and is willing to teach all the knowledge she's gained over the course of her incredible career to anyone who is eager to learn. 

Before our coaching session, I felt like I was running my business into the ground. I needed to put systems in place to move my business forward, but I kept getting bogged down by the day to day tasks. I needed someone with incredible organization skills to walk me through the back end of the business and that is exactly what Cassi did. She was so patient with me and my dozens of questions, and was completely transparent about her workflow. 

The best part of Cassi's sessions is that they are completely customizable. We discussed what I wanted to learn ahead of time so I felt like every minute of our session was extremely productive. She helped me put my systems in place - from Dubsado to Lightroom - and now I am much more efficient in my pre and post session workflow. I walked away from the session with tangible tools to keep my business organized, and I know I provide a much better experience for my clients.”

“Coaching with Cassi was hands-down one of the best investments I could have made for my budding business. Cassi’s kind heart and sweet-as-pie personality immediately put me at ease and made the day feel as though I was learning from an old friend. She’s a natural teacher, and her thorough methods of approaching wedding photography will truly help me to improve my craft and cut my editing time in half.   The lessons I learned helped shape not only the way that I work, but the confidence I now have in shooting.  It was truly life-changing and one of the smartest business moves I could have made!  A month after I coached with her and attended her workshop, I launched my website and my inquiries sky-rocketed.  I know I would not have been able to attack that work load without the guidance and support I received from Cassi. My only regret is not coaching with her sooner!”

 “My one-on-one session with Cassi was incredible! She completely tailored the session to meet my needs and we were able to hit on every topic I wanted to discuss! Cassi was completely candid, no topic was off the table. The two most helpful parts of the day for me were when Cassi helped me improve my back button focusing technique and when she showed me how to consistently edit in order to achieve results that reflect my brand, two major struggles I have been having.”
