The A-to-Z roadmap for how to plan, shoot, and deliver your best brand photographs by next week, with absolute confidence the result is 100% WORTH what your clients paid.

Let's do this thing!

Abby Grace presents:

Say byeeee to those cliché smiling-at-a-MacBook-Pro photos everyone else is shooting…

…and HELLO to scroll-stopping, sophisticated brand photos for dream clients (that get you BOTH noticed!)

You're tired of saving all the best Saturdays of the year for other people's life events. You love your bridal clients, but honestly?

It'd be really nice to be able to RSVP "yes" to that trip to the apple orchards.

Because producing more of what's already out there?
That's a surefire way to be ignored as a brand photographer. 

Your clients need your creativity.

And you know if you could JUST find the right system,
branding would finally take off (allowing you to
slow your roll on wedding weekend work).

Instead, you pack your car for another 12-hour day on your feet, slip on your black jumpsuit, tuck a Lara bar in your pocket, and pull out of the driveway for another perfect weekend of weather... spent working. 

What you REALLY need are turn-by-turn directions from someone who's already been there. 

You love a good brand session... but replacing wedding-sized paycheck feels impossible.

Plus you're already a busy photographer with everything else on your plate—if you have to figure out a new workflow for ONE more thing in life, things will start falling through the cracks for your existing clients.

You don’t have time to start from scratch. But figuring out the nuts and bolts of a new offer feels like an absolute bear, in a season when you're already tired. 

You’re tired of second-guessing your results

Am I actually qualified to do this?

Is my client disappointed but not telling me? 😳

Is my photography worth what I charge?

Am I EVER going to feel like I crushed it?

This you?

You’ve been hacking your way through brand shoots like a soccer dad takes on Ikea— with freebie downloads and 12-second tips from TikTok ... but it isn’t working QUITE according to plan.

"I want my September Saturdays back...
but how can I possibly replace that income?"

"Am I actually qualified to do this?"

"Is my client disappointed but not telling me?" 😳

"Was this shoot even worth what I charged?"

This you?

Because truth be told, you're terrified of the idea of change.

But if you felt GOOD about the results you were producing, it would fuel your
determination (and your belief that, yes- this can work!).

You know brand photography has *potential* to be a new, consistent source of income...

➡️ ...if you could just get a proven, creative approach that 
moves beyond the cliché imagery. ⬅️

… I mean, what you really want to do is be able to walk away from a shoot with absolute confidence that you captured creative photos 100% WORTH what your client paid.

… because you’re finally capturing the type of sophisticated brand photos that stands out from the masses, getting your clients noticed by their dream audience, and makes YOU their hero.

You could be satisfied, THRILLED with your own work—confident that you're delivering *unquestionably valuable* photographs.

You’d be able to wake up to feedback like this:

A consistent, creative system is within reach.

Let's do this thing!

No plan, no strategy- just hoping the photos would get a buncha likes on Insta. 🤦🏻‍♀️

I walked into my first branding shoot seven years ago
with no idea what I was doing. ZERO.

Instead of helping my clients stand out, my photos faded into the background.

I shot the cliché, smiling-at-a-laptop photos. (Like, hundreds of them)

I posed my client in cute-but-unreal ways. **Laughing over your shoulder while tucking hair behind your ear?** CHECK.

It only took me a few more sessions to realize that the overly-perfect, Insta-cute method left a LOT to be desired. 🥱


👉🏼 Photos that blend into a social feed wasn't cutting it- I wanted to help my clients get NOTICED.

I wanted to capture strategic, marketing-minded photographs that helped my clients connect with their audience so that they could *sell more* and serve the people they’re dying to help.

That meant switching up my method in a BIG way. 

I became obsessed with studying marketing tactics, running endless photo audits to see how I could better create results that catch the eye of my clients' target audience.

And now? I'm handing over my system!

The only course that teaches photographers a framework-based, customizable system for a creative approach that grows with you. 

In my proven 6-step framework, we’ll get down to business: my education style is fluff-free and hard-hitting.  I'll show you how to customize my system for YOUR business, so you can level up your results at your very 👏🏼next 👏🏼shoot 👏🏼.

Introducing:

Think like a marketer, shoot like an artist- you'll help your clients stand out by creating photographs that both embody their unique brand AND sell their services.

Walk into every session CONFIDENT you're going to thrill your client, resulting in raving fans, referrals, and repeat clients (my fave!).

Craft a creative roadmap that's 100% tailored to each client- you can stop stressing over whether or not the Pinspiration Fairy 🧚‍♀️ will show up. You'll be on your A-game, every time. 

Raise your prices 💰 Yeah, I said it. I've had numerous BPA students increase their rates and book their highest collection to date. Replacing even just a few wedding weekends? It gets a whole lot easier when you're an expert.


A consistent, creative plan IS within reach

Step 1

Let's Do This Thing!

Here's the process

How does it work?

“Now that I've walked through BPA, I have confidence in myself as a brand photographer because I can walk my clients through a process that achieves the photos they need that have depth and aren't exact repeats of those I've taken for others.

I’ve got literal evidence of this- because the day we went over the shoot day module, I was actually in the middle of a brand photoshoot for a friend. We took a break for lunch and I tuned into the lesson and then afterward went back to shooting. *The photos I took after the module were a stark contrast to the ones before.* It wasn't that the photos before were bad, per se, however, the ones taken afterward were more thought out and had more depth in story because the 5 Layers of Depth were running through my mind, as well as the concept of maximizing each scene!”

- Rachael Curtis, Brand Photography Academy grad

" I love that your approach to brand photography isn't one-size-fits-all. You teach + equip photographers with tools and processes to serve well, instead of giving a cookie-cutter formula.” - Caity Kramer, BPA grad

“I feel so much more confident in how I approach branding photography, but it isn't just because I learned what I thought I needed, it was all the things I didn't even know I needed to know. Abby is a true branding/brand photography genius.
-
Amber Langerud, BPA grad 

BPA met every gap I didn't even know was there… I've been shooting branding off and on for years. I knew I needed something more to go in-depth with my brand clients and this served that purpose!” - Amy Allmand, BPA grad

What our students are saying!

After all, Frankenstein was cobbled together and he *technically* walked around (well, for a bit), right? 🧟‍♂️

But without the strategic approach needed to shift from documenting relationships to creating MARKETING-driven imagery, you’ll find your images fall flat and fail to stand out from the masses.

What’s more—sneaking peeks at that Pinterest board on your phone during shoots and trying to reverse-engineer someone else’s brand photos isn’t gonna work out so well. Applying someone ELSE’S brand strategy ultimately won’t help YOUR client when their business has completely different goals, values, and strengths.

I think you’ll soon find that a jumbled, patched-together 🧵 approach will only take you so far before things start coming apart at the seams.

Eventually? You’ll need a cohesive, proven method that builds on itself to create layered brand portraits that speak directly to your client’s audience... instead of assembling a precariously leaning tower of other people’s strategies.

And that approach, my friend, is what enables you to start moving from a patchy portfolio to profitable performances.

Sure, you COULD simply come at branding with the same approach you use for weddings
… duct-taped together with the branding tips you’re soaking up from TikTok & Reels.

You leave your sessions feeling flat and unfulfilled- you know there's more that could have been done to make the session a success, but you're not clear on WHAT that is.
 
You desperately want to make brand photography a sustainable offer (maybe even pivot completely out of your current industry)... but something's just not clicking. You're SO close you can taste it- if you could *just* take your work to the next level, you'd be golden.

You have no idea how to price your services, which leaves you underpaid and overworked... running the risk of resenting your clients because you're unsure how to best run your own business. 

Your shoots consistently run behind because of a lack of organization, and your clients seem to be unclear as so what's ACTUALLY included in a brand session- is it  head shots? Lifestyle photos? Product photography? Who knows! 

Listen, I believe that FLUFF is only good in marshmallow form. Here’s how to know if this course is a good fit for where you’re at:

I’m one of those people who’ll tell it to you straight
if I don’t think you need what I’m selling. 

If you’re a branding photographer who already has a solid roster of clients under your belt, whose system runs like a well-oiled machine, and who’s already confident in your track record of capturing images that make your creative heart sing and help your clients stand out + sell more... my friend? You probably don’t need this course!

A: I work exclusively with small businesses, some who are categorized as “personal brands,” others who aim to keep the business at the center instead. BPA does not teach on product photography or working with large name-brands, but instead focuses on the ins and outs of working with small businesses, including solopreneurs and small teams.

Q: Is this for personal brands, commercial brands, or both?

A: Brand photography requires that you shift from thinking like a relationship documentarian to planning like a strategist. Forcing brand portraits through the same approach as weddings will almost guarantee that you miss the mark, and fail to capture photographs that help your clients stand out and attract their dream audience members.

Q: I’ve been shooting weddings and portraits for a while now, why is branding any different?

A: I got you covered! I’ll be answering questions from our students in a members-only group INSIDE the course (read: not a FB group, so you don’t have to worry about logging on to ask a question and getting distracted by those photos of your cousin’s baby). I don’t offer any sort of mentoring, so this group is the BEST way to get those answered by yours truly.

Q: Ok, so what if I have questions as I walk through the course?

A: Brand Photography Academy focuses on the strategy and business of branding photography- while you will get insight into what’s in my gear back and a peek at my settings during the BTS video, *this is not a technical course!* You’ll need a thorough working knowledge of your gear in order to get the full value of this course.

Q: Will you teach me how to use my camera?

You sure can! But the Yearly Sales price of $997 is only available until 10/6/2023

Q. Can I sign up anytime?

A: You know it! You can save a bit by paying in full today, or split it into twelve payments of $97, paid over twelve months.

Q: I’m nervous about the investment- is there a payment plan?

A: Nope! I’ll walk you through my ENTIRE process, from what to include on your contact page to how to pitch your dream clients- consider this an in-depth crash course that’ll give you a solid, lock-step process so you can hit the ground running with your very first client. Yo go, Glen Coco.

Q: Wait, but what if I’ve NEVER shot a branding session? Is this going to be too advanced??

A: I led a small group of beta students through the material before releasing it as a course, and I purposefully chose students with a wide variety of experience- from “I haven’t shot my first branding client yet” to “I’ve been doing this for a few years now, but something’s still missing.” If you’re looking for a better method that produces more creative, strategy-based results for your clients than your current approach, this is for you. The content inside the course goes beyond just the basics, teaching you how to plan for mature images that take your brand sessions to the next level. 

Q: I’ve been shooting branding photography for a while now… is this going to be too “elementary” for me?

A few FAQs for you, because you and I?
We’re both the type to ask questions!

THE REVIEWS ARE IN:

“The content that you receive from this course is worth WAY more than the price tag. The education in this course is outstanding and very in-depth. You will learn so much about how to shift your mindset during branding shoot preparation and how to go in to each session feeling confident and prepared. ”

Corinne Isabelle

“Just. Do. It. You really won’t regret it. I have gotten so much out of this process that I feel like I know my own business and brand better. ”

Stephanie Foster

“You will surely not be disappointed. This course overdelivers on everything you need to know and is really fun! Just jump in!”

Mary Menger

You COULD keep trying to hack it together on your own, but honestly- you don’t know how much more time you can afford to spend "figuring it out"- you need this offer to be profitable, like, yesterday. 

If you just had a system, a proven plan, you’d be unstoppable. 💪🏼

I’d love to help you jump the line from producing ho-hum, forgettable photos to dreaming up strategic, creative images that THRILL your dream clients.

Join me inside Brand Photography Academy so that I can help you:

Approach every client and session *with a plan,* never guessing what comes next because you have a method that grows with you

Dream up creative ways to visually illustrate your clients’ brands, helping them get noticed by their audience (and making you their hero) 🦸🏽‍♂️

Book every client with confidence that you’ll deliver something new and tailored to their brand, never again questioning whether you’re worth what you charge.

Raise your prices and book out your calendar on a schedule that works for you, because you've created a roster of raving fans who keep coming back for more.
