Thank you so much Heidi Hope and the staff! I was afraid that I could not catch-up with others and the seminar itself since I’m still beginner. I’m overwhelmed but glad I took this seminar. Heidi, I’m so grateful what you do for us and I would love to believe I can!


Thank you for the INCREDIBLE workshop Photographer Rising. After 15 years in business I was not sure how much I would benefit. What I learned was invaluable, and more than I could have ever imagined. Your style of teaching is every bit as WONDERFUL as your photography style! You workshop was inspiring, I leave feeling more creative, more business savvy, more motivated, and now have the tools to really allow my business to take off! You are amazing and your workshop is too! THANK YOU HEIDI!! #photographer rising

Thank you so much for being so open and helpful and giving so much of yourself through this workshop. You have inspired me so much and I am so looking forward to getting down to business and tackling the things that I’ve been so afraid to do in the past. This has been amazing and I’m just so happy that I took the leap to sign up. Thanks to you and to your amazing staff!!

After being in the photography business for over 15 years, Heidi and Shaun are the most genuine people I have ever met in this industry. They are an open book and beyond willing to help others. It was such a pleasant surprise to finally take a workshop that the teachers are real, honest, and even willing to share their actual numbers with you. NO ONE does that. No one. They literally will give you the steps to take to create a profitable and enjoyable photography business. I was a little nervous about 5 days online. I wanted to be sure I stayed focused. Clearly that wasn’t a problem. Heidi nailed it and had us all on the edge of our seats the entire time.

Thank you for such an amazing, inspiring workshop opportunity! I’ve taken quite a few workshops and although they were very helpful and resourceful, yours is the top contender! I loved how it was live and we were able to interact with you as if we were in the same room in person. You opened up everything you knew about being a business owner and photographer and not many people are willing to do that and I want to thank you. I cannot wait to see what 2015 has to bring for my business. I’ve been telling everyone about the workshop and will continue to do so. So many positives that came from this workshop and it has really inspired me to work harder, be more organized, know that things take time and that every photographer has had their struggles but have worked hard to be where they are today! From the worksheets to the videos on how you conduct your session were so helpful to visually get to see how things are done and hear how you interact with clients instead of having to read how it’s done and try to paint a picture of it! Another positive was meeting new people from around the world. I love how we have been helping each other, supporting each others’ photography pages from Facebook to Instagram to Pinterest, etc. I can’t thank you enough and I look forward to attending more workshops!!!

Like many photographers, I’m self-taught. I took a few classes in college and have read millions of books from marketing/branding to every single business book you can imagine. I’ve taken in-person lighting & software classes and online business and photography courses. And after almost 4 years in the business I finally get it.

I found Heidi Hope online when I started my research years ago. I watched her business blossom and know I learned from one of the best. I didn’t realize the profound impact it would have on my life signing up for Photographer Rising. Unlike any workshop I’ve ever taken, Heidi walked us through step by step EXACTLY how you’re supposed to start a photography business; the business plan, how to price yourself smartly, value, marketing & branding, and retouching. Her devotion to the people in the class and all of the questions I’ve finally gotten answered have forever changed me and my business. In what sometimes can be a very lonely profession, I finally don’t feel lost anymore.

Honestly, I feel like I got my life back. With my family and this business I’ve been ready to throw in the towel so many times. But for the amount of hours and the sacrifices I’ve made I’m dedicated to making this a successful REAL business, not just an expensive hobby. Heidi, you’re an amazing dedicated teacher and clearly you have found your calling.
