Mindset and Business Education for Photographers who want to go from overlooked to fully-booked without relying on your images.



Our Mission 

 

To give you the tools that will help you stay committed to your photography business, and do the things you say you'll do, even when nobody is looking (or when that sneaky imposter syndrome or feeling of rejection pops up)

 

To facilitate a supportive, global community of heart-centered photographers that help each other so you don't feel lonely-AF as the solopreneur in your business

 

To give you the exact business strategies and tools you need to design your unique photo business, make more money, get your time back, and make a positive impact in your community (yes, this is all possible)

 

To transform overlooked photographers and hustle-too-hard photographers into Badass PhotoCEOs, so you can finally run your business the way you've dreamt of instead of letting it run you.

Want to learn more about us first? We got you!

And the first thing we think you should know is...

We don't take ourselves seriously at photoshoots.

Hmm what else?
..................
Well...Most days you can find us

Either hanging out in our hammocks or treating our pets like gods. Fredrika's dog Belle has a custom-made tutu and Megan's cats wear hats. Yep, we're those people.

Ok ok.. let's get serious for just two seconds and then back to the fun stuff!

We've been photographers for 18+ combined years and have both built successful businesses in multiple locations. We're both currently located in Victoria, B.C., Canada but are excited to connect with photographers globally!



Fredrika
 has been a photographer for 13 years and has worked across Canada and internationally. She went to school for Photojournalism, Psychology and Business and has recently become a member of The Coaching Institute, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School. After working with her own mindset coaches and realizing how important mindset was in following through on business strategy (and not getting stuck in wild bouts of comparison and imposter syndrome), she went from booking 1 - 2 shoots per month to 2 - 4 shoots per week.

After 13 years as a photographer and over 875+ people captured, she founded Photo Business Design. Together with Megan, rockstar business partner and fellow photographer, they co-created a Top-Ranked podcast, The PhotoCEO Podcast and The Photo Business School. Rikki is now primarily focused on guiding other photographers to success in their dream businesses and currently works only by referral in her photo business. 

Megan is a self taught photographer and has been in business for 5 years. She was able to go from not knowing how to change a lens on her camera, to full time photographer in one year, by the age of 19.

She's been published more than 10 times, has a team of 10 photographers and videographers across Canada, and makes $10K+ each month in her business.

She's excited to teach you all about business strategies, workflows, automations, and how to SCALE your business to the moon!




Other than our own photo businesses, what we enjoy most is helping you get out of your own way so that you can show up with more confidence in your biz, book more clients (without overwhelm) and through taking messy action, actually manifest that dream business you have in your head.

“Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have people who genuinely care about your success? Cue the amazing duo team at Photo Business Design."

This has been the most valuable investment I have made, other than my actual camera."

"Having watched the free training, I did expect that the content [in The PhotoCEO Method] would be useful and attainable for me in terms of applying it personally and in my business.

But I was blown away by the depth of content that pushed me out of my comfort zone from the very beginning.

I love that I was challenged weekly to make changes to my thought, mindset, habits or processes. The homework often made me deeply consider how I was going about my life, my business and what I really wanted to achieve.

I was constantly encouraged to take action, really beginning the transformation into being the person and PhotoCEO that I aspire to. I gained so much especially from the early weeks around mindset as this has always been a process and a challenge for me, but for once I began to believe that my dream is possible.

The entire program felt like a large, like-minded community encouraging, sharing and learning together. And this includes Megan and Fredrika who openly shared all of themselves with us. I felt safe to share and really grew to trust my coaches. I now listen to them talk whenever I need a positive lift, encouragement or kick in the pants.

This has been the most valuable and treasured investment I have made, other than my actual camera."
