Build Your Business, Live Your Dreams.
Melissa and Paul are professional accomplished speakers and influencers in the photography industry and have had the honor to speak and/or are scheduled to speak at the following international, national and regional conferences.
You know that anxious feeling you get wondering when your next photography gig is?
You love what you do and know you are damn good at it. So why aren’t you getting paid?

Maybe you don’t have all the gear yet. Maybe you don’t have all the skills yet. But you have the determination to follow your passion and a love for creating beautiful images for your clients.

You know you deserve better. We know you do too.
You deserve a system that will take your photography business to the next level, take out the guesswork and overwhelm, and that will allow you to focus on business systems that can be duplicated and that work.
You deserve to be surrounded by other like minded photographer entrepreneurs who understand where you are coming from and have the same day to day challenges of running a photography business. Individuals you can learn from in a non judgemental and supportive environment, dedicated to the business of photography.

This means you will go from thinking “Is this really going to work? Can I really do this?” to “Oh my gosh this is actually going to work! I can do this!”. Taking your love of photography from a hobby to a business, and a profitable business at that! A photography business that gives you so many life options.

Whether that is:
  • Creating your own schedule where you determine where and when you work
  • The flexibility to take time off to spend with your family and friends
  • Opportunities for travel and life experiences photographing different places, people, and events
  • Building financial freedom, whether that is putting money in savings, paying off debt, and making investments that you and your family will benefit from
  • Waking up each morning knowing that you are doing what you love, staying creative, and impacting the lives of others you work with in a positive way.
You will create a life that you love and deserve. A life where you are the boss, call the shots, and most importantly, do what you love. Happy dance!

You have the opportunity to help other people and create impactful images. Images that document people’s best days, capture timeless moments, and showcase beauty and emotion.

So let’s do this. Let’s follow our dreams and passion and do what we love. Let’s change the way we run our photography businesses and instead of being starving artists, be profitable artists.

After attending Paul and Melissa's workshop this week, before I even got home, I joined two networking/self improvement groups and decided to attend their meetings scheduled for yesterday and today. The one on Thursday was Toastmasters and the one today was a networking group for local entrepreneur women. Well the Toastmaster one was still intimidating because I'm not comfortable speaking in front of a large group, but I'm determined to continue going. The meeting today was amazing and I ended up joining it on the spot (I had gone as a guest initially). And let me tell you: not only I meet amazing business women, but I also left with two booked head shots for next week - and I don't even have a portfolio for it yet. Thank you again Paul and Melissa, I'm super excited about growing my business in this direction and with all the opportunities that is about to come from following your advice.- Lucia Cintra
I was at the Wedding Photographer Bootcamp in person and it was amazing. I learned so much and I am pumped up to take that knowledge into my business. Paul Pruitt and Melissa Escaro were so awesome I can not thank them enough. Everyone should check this out, your whole mindset will change.-Steve Murphy
Loved the interaction with members! Paul and Melissa are truly mentors, not just admins! Love this community!!!-Anne Money
This was my third workshop with Paul! Always very informative and down to earth knowledge and advice. Can't stress enough how great and dedicated Paul and Melissa are to teach business and photography. They really want us to succeed! Thank you! -Violetta Butkiewicz
So I created a wedding ad following Paul Pruitt's advice from his video awhile back on targeted Facebook ads. I didn't think it would come to much, but I targeted specific cities & only recently engaged women. I only had it run for a week, but on the 2nd day of it being up I got one inquiry that ended up booking for next year. 

In one week the ad reached almost 8k people, over 300 post engagements, & about 20 new likes to my fb page. I ended up only spending $76 & I'm still getting inquiries. 

I plan on tweaking it a bit & running similar ads for family/newborn photos, but I consider it a success so far!
Thank you so much for sharing Paul & for this awesome group!-Anna Alethia Manning
If anyone is in doubt of what Paul Pruitt has been teaching about networking, handing out business cards, and hanging out with the types of clients you want to attract, try it! I spent endless hours on sitting behind my computer, posting to Facebook, creating Facebook and instagram ads with absolutely NO response! Not to say that Facebook ads don't work, but networking has been instrumental in business picking up for me. I joined my local chamber of commerce, joined a local entrepreneurs meet-up group, have been handing out business cards like crazy, did a bridal show and business is finally picking up! I'm not crazy busy, but I'm at least getting my phone to ring. I booked two weddings from the bridal show, did all of the chamber board members headshots, picked up my first paid commercial shoot, and just finished another head shot session yesterday, and just got off the phone with another potential commercial client. So, get out there and network! I promise you won't be disappointed! :)-Rebecca Campbell
With my 2 boys in bed back to studying/reading again. Here is my update so far on what I have read. 1. I will be buying another copy bc mine is full of notes and highlights there is so much great information in this book. 2. If you have not bought this book I highly recommend it. It's not that expensive and can help you more than you know. 3. If your new to photography and starting up a business BUY this book if your experienced BUY this book. Easy to read and understand. Straight to the point for those who don't like to read much this book goes by fast :)-April Kanowski
Paul and Melissa, thank you for your book you gave me at Shutterfest. I listened to your goal setting podcast today and I just happen to be on the goals section of your book tonight. What is really clicking for me is what you said about setting health goals. Without your health you can throw everything else out the window. This is what's happening with me; I'm not healthy. And my business is no nowhere near where it should be after 2 1/2 years. Not a coincidence. So I'm setting a 3 month goal to get healthy and in shape by walking and biking to work everyday and cutting out processed foods. I need to feel better about myself so I can help my business grow. Thanks for the motivation you two!-Danny McElmury
Paul and Melissa....wanted to let you know I did not sleep on the plane ride home...even after several nights of no sleep...Read you book from cover to cover....GREAT two should be very proud!-Davenna Greenhouse Trahan
I'm about 30 pages into the book and I just came across this quote that really hit home for me. "Don't just focus on today - focus on the success of your business today and in the future". If anyone is hesitant about purchasing Profitographers, I highly recommend it!-Brittany Bodendorf
Paul & Melissa, I've been reading the book and I have to say, it's amazingly helpful already, and I'm not even that far into it yet. The beginning - about the costs involved in digital photography & running a legitimate business, plus what all is needed to run a successful business, brilliant. Especially the part about shoot-and-burn, and why it is SO much more productive & lucrative to do IPS! I agree 100%. Thank you, it's terrific.-
Kelly McMurtry Alley
So let me ask you…
Are you ready to surround yourself with like minded, supportive professionals, with positive attitudes and looking to grow?

Are you ready to build a photography business that fires you up, and fills you up with the creativity, passion, and freedom you have been dreaming of?

If you are nodding and screaming yes, then join us in our unique community and let’s take the journey together.

If you made it this far, and are still curious good. You may be wondering if this is right for you and if you should join.

We totally get it. However if it is a time thing that is holding you back because you think you have too much going on in your life…
Do I have the time to do this?
We get it.

You have work, family, life commitments...and somewhere in there sleep and free time.

Simply put you are busy.

We know that not everyone has the time to sit at their computer watching hours worth of training videos.

We don’t have time for that. Which is why we have designed Photographer Entrepreneur Inner Circle specifically for busy bees like you!
The Magic of Our Online Community
We’ve designed our community to give you jammed packed information in small pieces. Easy to watch and digest in short periods of time.

We believe that you can balance your busy life while investing in yourself and your education. And that you don’t have to sacrifice one for the other.

We have also made our community interactive. Gone are the days where you watch a video or read an article and then wonder what to do next. In Photographer Entrepreneur Inner Circle, everything designed to be interactive. And if that is not enough, we have included productivity hacks that will allow you to use your time more efficiently and effectively! Woo Hoo!

Or maybe it’s not a time thing...maybe it’s a money thing. If that is the case, allow us to help you with that...
Can I afford to join Photographer Entrepreneur Inner Circle?
We are our own worst enemies. We tend to convince ourselves of all the self-doubt noise in our head…

We tell ourselves we aren’t smart enough to do this…

We convince ourselves that we are going to fail…

We tell ourselves that we don’t deserve to pursue our dreams, or that we are crazy if we do…

And what you are really doing is programming your brain that you are not good enough.
But Here’s The Thing…
You deserve so much better. You deserve to chase your dreams and live a life full of purpose and passion. And waking up every moment grateful and excited about what you do, because you know it is something that matters to YOU!

So if the money thing is throwing you off…

Here is a list of things that are more likely expensive than a monthly membership to PROFITographers Premium:

  • A full tank of gas for your car
  • Movie tickets for two
  • A good bottle of red wine
  • A Friday night pizza dinner
  • Two Zumba classes
  • A 32 gb memory card
  • Your cable bill
  • Manis & pedis
  • 2 lemondrop martinis
  • A new pair of shoes
  • 2 day passes to an amusement park
  • A spa day
  • A car wash and detail job
  • One month of fancy coffees
  • Maid service
  • A pack of rechargeable batteries
  • A sushi feast
  • A bottle of nice perfume or cologne
  • A monthly gym pass
  • One night hotel stay
  • A new cute outfit
  • A massage
  • One private Yoga session
  • Tickets to see a concert
  • A trip to the boardwalk’s concessions stands
Pretty much everything is more expensive and you get our point! 

Plus none of these expenses above have the ability to pay you back. 

None of them have the potential to alter the course of your life.

And none of them can teach you how to create a successful and profitable photography business.
So the thing you now have to ask yourself is how badly do you want to change your life?
How much longer will you continue to stress out? For friends, family and maybe even yourself to wonder if this “photography thing” will really work out? How many more days, weeks, or months can you justify “getting by”, doing a balancing act, or wandering aimlessly wondering when your next client will come along? What is it going to take for you to realize…

You deserve more. So much more.

If you are ready for a change, looking to take back control of your life and invest in yourself and create a successful and profitable photography business that you love to wake up to everyday….
