Your Source for all Things Boudoir

To become a successful photographer, you must be strong in both art and business.  To be a successful boudoir photographer requires so much more.  While some of the basics of business and pricing are the same for most genres of photography, boudoir clients want different products, they require a specialist’s knowledge of posing and lighting, and they demand a different experience.

Only a few years ago, boudoir was considered an obscure niche.  As this style of photography grows, boudoir photographers are facing the same market flooding and undercutting that other photographers have struggled with for over a decade.  Building a six-figure boudoir brand can be done (yes, even in your market), but you have to work for it! 

Posing.  Lighting.  Business.  Pricing.  Sales.  Marketing.  Are you ready?

We invite you to join our boudoir education Facebook group “Boudoir Insight Photography Education” and start your road to success today!
