- Can't decide which critical task you should work on first?
- Need someone to talk to who just "gets it"?
- Confused by too much information and conflicting opinions on the right way to do things?

A Personal Note From Nigel
More people than ever before dream of becoming a professional photographer and living life on their own terms as a successful and respected business owner in their community.
From the outside, it seems so EASY, doesn't it?
Friends and family tell you how much they love your photography and encourage you to "earn a great living" with your camera.
So you dip your toes in the water to see what happens - maybe you post some photographs on Facebook, and manage to get a lot of "likes" and comments, such as "you're amazing!", "I LOVE these photos!", and "what a GREAT photographer!"
Encouraged further, you take the next step - making the leap to become a professional photographer, full of optimism about the bright future ahead.
But it didn't turn out as expected, did it?
Or, maybe you've been in the business a while, but the decline of traditional marketing combined with the explosion of online marketing has left you feeling high and dry, facing unfair competition from every corner...
The result is the same, regardless of how you got here:
You feel overwhelmed by all the things you have to do and stuck, unable to move forward, in a business that SHOULD be simple!
One photographer even remarked to me that failing at marketing made her "feel stupid and dumb..." and that she was ready to throw the towel in! What a tragedy that would be - To lose yet another talented photographer and deprive her future clients of the chance to have great photography created for them!
I don't believe anyone should suffer that kind of emotional turmoil in the pursuit of their passion!
You should be able to follow your dreams and fulfill your creative vision without having to spend every day struggling and re-inventing your business.
I've been working with Nigel for over 2 years now. Before that, I had a vague idea about what SEO was and the importance of it in my business. I'd been using Google AdWords to be found online with little to no ROI from it, and was spending around $300 a month on it.
Once I started working with Nigel, I finally stopped doing that. When we moved from New Jersey to LA, it took only about 4 weeks to get to page 2 of Google for "Professional Photographer Los Angeles", which I thought was amazing considering the lack of work I'd done in LA, and also the fact that I'd barely written any blog posts at the time.
I've been getting random inquiries through Google - far more than I ever got when I first started my business in NJ with no SEO knowledge, and I now consider myself to be pretty well educated on the subject of SEO and online marketing.
I've also learned how important networking is, and using blog posts to network with other vendors in the industry. As a result, I feel that other vendors appreciate me a lot more because I've written posts featuring them and given them a quality link back to their website. I believe networking starts with "how can I help you" vs. "how can you help me" and this is something I've learned from Nigel.
It's even helped me in the world of face-to-face networking, and I'm going in to meetings not shooting myself in the foot because I approach networking in the correct manner.
I believe marketing education is key to becoming a successful photographer and am very grateful that I discovered the Prime Focus program. I can definitely attribute a great portion of my success to Nigel and his dedication to his members.

The Prime Focus Concept Is Simple
Like most professional photographers, you probably work as a solo business owner.
You have to do EVERYTHING in your business!
- All the marketing (SEO, social media, email and a whole lot more)...
- Replying to emails and answering the telephone...
- Booking consultations...
- Holding sales presentations...
- Creating the photography...
- Editing and producing the finished products...
- Dealing with the print labs...
- Delivering the end product...
- And a whole bunch more...
It's no wonder there's no time left to PLAN and STRATEGIZE! The result is endless days of confusion and fires that need putting out.
For example, have you ever tried brainstorming with yourself?
It's incredibly DIFFICULT and more often than not causes real headaches, right?
The idea behind "Prime Focus" is to simplify your marketing, give you a sense of perspective, and develop strategies and easy-to-follow plans that free up more of your time for the really important stuff - like creating photographs for your clients and spending valuable time with your family.
With "Prime Focus" you have me as your personal marketing consultant to brainstorm with on a regular basis throughout the year - someone who KNOWS what you're going through and UNDERSTANDS your objectives and how to achieve them. In short - you're no longer alone...
