What I Don’t Do.
I don’t run workshops so you can come along, get the settings from me, get the lighting done for you and press the shutter on a stunning couple of models. That’s a big no-no for me.
I don’t run fancy “5 Steps to Success” or “The 10 Reasons you are failing” or even “The #3 things that will get you fully booked” crap either.
I designed, develop and deliver a range of solid down to earth practically focussed workshops to get you where you need to be.
What I do…
I own and run a successful coaching & mentoring business developing photographers through intensive 1-1 coaching sessions and group workshops focused on the business aspect of photography with the occasional foray into using Off-Camera Flash to differentiate yourself in a crowded market.
I also own and run a wedding photography business (www.andrew-miller.co.uk) and have done successfully for 14 years as well as a Management Development consultancy (www.rubus-consultants.co.uk) for 17 years. I’ve worked as a coach and consultant around the UK, US, Middle East and Far East.
I’ve been there, seen it and done it and won’t give you the crap about it being “easy – just increase your prices” or ” 5 Steps To Success Programme”. Running a small micro-business is hard lonely work ( #livingthedream #myass ) and you need the professional support to get through it. I’m qualified via the CIPD to deliver adult training sessions, I’m qualified via the Institute of Leadership & Management as a Coach & Mentor as well as being qualified with the British Psychological Society in a variety of levels (formally A, B and B+). I’m also a Business Mentor for Business Wales, the arm of the Welsh Government that develops business in Wales where I specialise in developing and achieving small business growth.
Yeah! I’m a non-executive Director as well and run a vibrant online community for around 50 entrepreneurs with business ranging from dog walking & house sitting to wedding & commercial videography to to digital media specialists to visual communications specialists to pet photographers to newborn & family photographers to lifestyle photographers and the odd wedding photographer thrown in for good measure!
The coaching & workshops I run are done face to face, the old fashioned way, giving the chance for the activists & pragmatists to interact, ask questions and take some real learning away immediatley. For the more reflective & theorists the online community and private messaging is a great way to follow up on the questions after some reflection.
