PITCHING WITH CONFIDENCE IS CURRENTLY CLOSED FOR ENROLMENT

I’ll be reopening the doors to the course in the Autumn. Make sure you sign up to my mailing list to be the first to find out when!


We’ve all been there. Sitting out our desk, constantly refreshing our inbox, hoping that someone will email us with a job offer.

And when an email does come you’re so worried that no one else will ever email you again, that you go ahead and take the work. You take it, even if it isn’t your dream work. Even if it doesn’t sound like fun.

Didn’t you get into photography for the love of it? To have fun? To create what is inside of you?

Pitching changes everything.

I know that just saying the word “pitch” will fill you with dread, fear, and insecurity.

But pitching means that you take back the control over where your next job comes from. Pitching means you put yourself in front of the very people you dream of working with. No more taking jobs out of fear.

Over the last two years, I’ve worked from the ground up, starting without a clue of what I was doing, never having worked with a brand in my life, to now, where I have a solid system in place. I get the majority of my brand work through pitching.

Let me show you how you can too.


 
I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to grow their photography career. The course has given me the confidence boost I really needed just at the right time. Out of the many photography business related courses I have taken, I can honestly say that Olivia delivered the honest, open and supportive guidance that I craved, and the tangible, practical help I felt others simply weren’t sharing.

“Pitching With Confidence” is for photographers who..

  • have been shooting for a few years and feel like they’re not booking the job they dream of booking.

  • have a solid career under their belt, but feel they need to pivot slightly.

  • are wanting to break into a new niche (fashion, lifestyle, commercial work).

  • wanting to shoot for magazines

  • want to take control over their career, and not leave it to chance anymore


You’ll learn:

  • How to identify who your dream clients really are.

  • how to find the contact details, even of the trickiest of people

  • how to create visually impactful and effective proposals

  • how to write a great email

  • how to feel confident enough to press “send”

  • how to maintain a relationships and make your pitching efforts last long term

After “Pitching With Confidence” you’ll be feeling confident, empowered, and prepared to pitch yourself to any brand you dream of. You’ll no longer sit there feeling frustrated and unworthy. Half the battle is simply knowing what to do, how to do it, and when to do it. No more waiting for your dream clients to come knocking. You’ll be the one showing up. You’ll be the one in control.


 
Without this course I would have never taken that first step of sending an email to brands I would love to work with. Olivia is an open book. She very generously shares her knowledge, and she is truly passionate about helping others to succeed.

Olivia has given me the confidence to go out there and pitch to the brands I want to work with. Her course made me realise I don’t have to wait for the dream clients to come to me, I have the power to make it happen if I just step out of my comfort zone!

How Much Does It Cost?

The “Early Bird” price is of £199, or two payments of £99, or three payments of £66.

After May 4th 2019, the price will go up to £240, or two payments of £120, or three payments of £80.

Please note: these prices do not include VAT. Sadly, the software that I’m using, Teachable, has a setting enabled which means I have to charge VAT. I understand that is annoying, and frustrating for small business owners, but I have deliberately kept the price of the course low for that reason.

When Does The Course Start?

We start officially on May 20th! You can register any time before then, and join the Facebook group.

HOW MUCH ACCESS DO WE GET TO YOU?

Although you won’t get any 1 to 1 time with me during the course, I’ll be on hand in the Facebook group during the working week at least once a day to answer questions and help you out! I’ll also be doing the odd Live Q&A in the facebook group to take questions.

HOW IS THE COURSE DELIVERED?

I’m hosting “Pitching With Confidence” on Teachable. This is an online education platform. I’ve taken courses on teachable myself, and I really like the format. Each week, you’ll receive an email to let you know that that weeks content in now available for you to read. You can log in at any time, and read through the content all in one go, or over the course of a few weeks or even months.

The course is currently all in written format, as that was how I felt it would be best delivered. There are a few video demo’s as well.

Each week you’ll be given homework and tasks to complete, to ensure that you make a proper start with pitching! I don’t want you to just know how to pitch… I want you to actually be pitching!
