LET ME GUESS...
You love to take photos, but you are afraid to share them.
You constantly feel like you need to learn just one more thing before you are ready to move forward with photography.
You don't know EVERYTHING (or maybe anything) about setting up a business and you feel overwhelmed with everything there is to learn.
You feel like a fraud because you never went to photography school.
You get paralyzed by the fear of judgment that comes with self-doubt about whether or not your photos are good enough to justify a business.
You've probably found yourself feeling overwhelmed with everything you need to learn:
How do I legally establish my business?
What makes me a professional photographer?
Where are the clients?
How do I set up my pricing the right way?
Do I need website AND client management system?
How do I market using social media?

Me! I'm Heather Lahtinen
PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS EXPERT AND CERTIFIED MINDSET COACH
I founded the FA because I believe in community and supporting photographers above all else. Not only do I believe that there is room for everyone, I know that the world needs your gift… the photos that only you can take. I wanted to create a safe, positive and encouraging place for photographers to learn and grow.
I remember being rejected by others in our industry when I started my business nearly 20 years ago. And I never forgot how that felt. I was excluded and led to believe that there wasn’t a place for me.
As a result, I was on a mission to prove that we could create something different, a world where photographers of ALL levels are welcomed and encouraged to pursue their passion.
There is room for you. YOU BELONG HERE.

I got to where I am because of you and everyone in the FA truly care about one another and we all want each other to be #bettertogether.

- "I had my largest sale ever, $5,300."
- "I just had a $2,300, my biggest ever."
- "I can't believe I'm typing this, I had an $8,500 sale."
(I wonder if they think Elevate is worth it?)
Still Got Questions?
What is the commitment?
Do I need to have a business?
Do I need to be a professional photographer?
Is the private social media group mandatory?
I'm not making money with my photography right now,
how can I afford this?
If you book one, JUST ONE extra client per month, Elevate will pay for itself.
Maybe you are thinking you aren't ready because you aren't getting clients or making money...
That’s great because we can focus on getting you clients as quickly as possible.
Did you ever consider that investing in your business is what needs to happen in order to grow your business?
When you invest in Elevate, you will be inclined to work harder on your business to get clients SO THAT you can pay for Elevate. See how that works?
- We have monthly challenges in Elevate and the first one is how to make $1,000 ASAP.
WHAT ABOUT A GUARANTEE?
I promise that you CAN do this. But if you’re not 100% satisfied with the content, strategy calls, community support, or the bonuses within 30 days, we will offer you a full refund, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
MY LAST PIECE OF ADVICE
I know you lead a very busy life. And you might be wondering if you can really do this.
But here's what you might not be considering: I BELIEVE IN YOU. And I know that this will work for you because I have seen it work for all different types of photographers, with all different types of [busy] life situations.
I have enough belief and confidence for both of us. Seriously. And that matters more than you might realize.
I am committed to your growth and deeply invested in your success.
