“Just a quick note to say thank you for opening my eyes and getting me away from the rut I was in. You were correct with the new display products required at the studio and from which the portrait sales have been so much easier. The selling system that you introduced me to where the products are displayed and the client is allowed to purchase is fantastic, I am very comfortable with this and am sure it has helped. I have just had a record sales week of $4500 of portrait sales. Just need to keep this momentum going, next stop world domination.”  David Thomlinson.


“Huge thanks to you Bernie for making the journey down to Hobart yesterday. Dan and I (and I’m sure everyone else) were able to take away a few real gems from the seminar that we are excited about implementing into our workflow.
There was plenty of other little gems so I wont name them all.Just a massive thanks to go to the trouble of coming down here.”  Dean Mainsbridge. Tasmanian Wedding Photographer of the Year.


“I  had the pleasure of listening in on Bernie’s presentation to Waikato/BOP a month or so ago, for which we provided some sponsorship. The subject was business, marketing, and strategies for success as a professional photographer.
Bernie spent forty-odd years as a very successful professional in Melbourne, and now offers a consultancy service to professionals, with most of his clients in Australia.
He is a well prepared and confident speaker, and that what he had to say was excellent advice – based on his own long experience but very relevant in today’s market. He was very well received by the group”. Ian Baugh Queensberry Albums.


“I have stepped up a notch. With Bernie’s strategies, my sittings have tripled! His support has given me much more confidence. He is part of my team .The best decision that I have ever made for my business was consulting with Bernie. I  wish I had done it so much earlier”. Leesa Perry.


“With every customer that walks through the door, my average sales now are between $1,200-$2000 and I could not be happier.” Zaharoula Harris 


“My business has grown about 70% in income”. Adrianna Harrison 


“I am an Auckland based pet photographer. Bernie has been my photography business coach for over a year. Since I started my photography business over 6 years ago, I had struggled through every winter and was very close to giving my photography away. After working with Bernie, everything changed. Bernie has taught me how to market my photography, shown me how to develop and position my brand, lift my prices, and my pet photography business, is now in the position of having a waiting list of clients. I have tripled my average portrait sale since working with Bernie. I can’t recommend Bernie highly enough. He is an inspirational speaker and mentor.”  Kimberely Kent  Tall Tails Pet Photography, Auckland – New Zealand

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your help this year. We had another record month for December with 32 sessions booked in for next year. I have now had over 60 people apply to be part of the book since launching last Wednesday. I have 40 leads that fit the criteria I am looking for. I have 15 confirmed bookings, and working on getting the others booked in. I also wanted to tell you, I used your suggestion of a baby plan with newborn clients. I charged them $25 to add a 6 month and 1-year session after doing the newborn session. One family today came in and spent $3090 for the 6-month session, so it is definitely working. We appreciate all the ideas you have put forward and the way you have challenged us to help drive our business to the next level.”

Kate & Chris Beuchner from Uber Photography



“All going crazy with the Facebook promo so thank you again. I followed your strategy for the Facebook business post to get leads for engaged couples and have had 57 inquiries and have currently made 16 bookings with many more clients. This is amazing as I am only in a relatively small town”.

Brook Durling from Simon and Louise Photography



“We talked a lot about pricing and creating packages. All these things I have put into place and seen a difference – plus I feel I am going in a clearer direction. You also talked to me a lot about owning my own style and this has changed the way I work a lot 🙂

“I can openly admit that you hit a lot of road bumps with me at the time we talked – it has taken a while for those points to sink in and I definitely feel that now I am in a better place. I actually believe now that my work is worth the price I charge and that people in the area can afford it – it’s just a matter of finding those people. I think between you and listening to Sue Bryce, a lot of sense has been slapped into me!”

Michelle Marchant from Kiddy Kats Photography



“I was ready to take the ‘next step’ to progress my home-based business.
The best thing that ever happened was I found Bernie. He gave me the confidence to raise my prices and re-evaluate my products. The changes resulted in a dramatic increase in average sales.

I have stepped up a notch using Bernie’s strategies. His support has given me much more confidence. He is part of my team.

The best decision that I have ever made for my business was consulting with Bernie. I only wish I had done it much earlier”.

Leesa Perry from Leesa Perry Photography



“Have I thanked you enough for changing the direction my business is going?
Your experience in this industry is invaluable to whoever is thinking of going into business full time in the field of photography. This is our first ever Christmas since having my family that I have not stressed about money, I NOW HAVE MONEY!!!!

Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be making Portrait sales as this”.

Zaharoula Harris from Zed Photography



“My business has grown since July 2009 more than I ever expected. My business grew with about 70% in income. I used to photograph weddings for almost nothing. You taught me how to value my work and how to sell it to customers.

My portrait sittings have increased from 2 a month to 6 per week with an average sale of $1,300.

I am over the moon with my new figures!!! I have you to thank for giving me a slice of your experience to feed myself!! And lots of confidence.”

Adriana Harrison from Harwood Photography



“Bernie, I had a great 3 generations mother & daughter portrait sale today! I thought it was a terrible shoot. A single mum who brought in her mum and her young daughter – bad lighting, shocking editing, the little girl lost it on the day, they annoyed me by canceling their viewing session at the last minute TWICE! And I was sure they wouldn’t buy anything. Instead, they brought along the little girl’s grandad who bought an album of the shoot for $1790 plus three large wall prints – an order total of $2780. They loved all the shots”.

Fi Mims Photography



“Hey Bernie, I hope you are doing well. I was reading the book you sent me and I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all the effort you put into my business. It has helped me immensely. I am gonna be going full-time in the near future and I would love to get coaching again from you then. I’ll be in touch 🙂 I love your book!”

“Thanks for the Weekend at Bernie’s. Lots of food for thought for me. I am a lot wiser now, I just need to be brave enough to dangle my feet to get them wet. I look forward to doing more courses with you.”

Lynne Luhr



“A huge thanks to you Bernie for making the journey down to Hobart yesterday. Your idea of having multiple promotions running was a real confirmation of some discussion we had recently. We had never thought of employing a one day a week marketing person to arrange our promotions. What a great idea!!! Something that we will seriously consider implementing at the start of the new year.”

Dean Mansbridge



“My business has gone from strength to strength here in Shepparton and earlier this year I was voted in top 10 wedding photographers in Capture Magazine, so thank you very much, Bernie.”

Liz Arcu



“I just wanted to thank you for the seminar. I learned a lot and it was very inspiring. I think you have a great attitude towards business and I now feel next year I will be able to pursue my venture with a lot more confidence.”
