What exactly is a Mastermind?

A mastermind is a combination of peer brainstorming, accountability, community and support in a group setting. The goal is to create solutions, share resources and achieve success in your business.

Our aim is to set you up to succeed and bring you into a network of photographers who are just as hungry as you to improve their businesses and their tactics and strategies around Marketing and SEO.

“Feeling very inspired and motivated after tonight’s session and grateful to have so many incredible minds at my fingertips!” – Nisha Ravji

What is the Mastermind Structure?

We have 2 topic-specific focussed Masterminds: 

1) Improving your Marketing Strategies & Tactics To Grow Your Client Base And Earn More 


 2) Improving Your Organic SEO Reach To Book More Sessions & Rank on Page 1 on Google 

Each Mastermind has 6 creatives, who meet for 2 hours, every 2 weeks over a period of 12 weeks. You’ll get access to our Mastermind community on Facebook where you will also find added support from your community.

Is this the right fit for me?

If you’re looking to improve your SEO or Marketing efforts, are committed to your business growth and are motivated and inspired to be a part of a community, then YES.

Register your interest to learn more and we can set up a call to answer any questions you may have.

How much are they?

$79 CAD per week ( $59 USD ) per week for 12 weeks.

Do you offer payment plans?

100%. You can pay in instalments if you prefer. Drop us a message to discuss.

Where is it located? When are they?

All calls take place over Zoom, from the comfort of your own home or work place. We ask all attendees to schedule 2 hours off for complete focus in the Mastermind, free from distractions. We make sure the timings work for every participant before moving forward with any calls.

What if I miss a call? What is the commitment level?

We encourage you to commit to being on all the calls, as the conversations are shaped by group participation, and it’s where the magic happens! We understand that things do come up, and will support you in catching up on the conversation afterward.
All calls are recorded for a 1 week replay to keep you on track.

Who will I be in a group with?

Each group is carefully curated to ensure that everyone is as hungry as each other to level up their business, and are ready to take a leap forwards. We value community over competition and believe there is the biggest opportunity to grow your business through supporting your fellow group members to do so too.

When is the next intake?

15 October 2020.

They both are things I want to focus on. How do I know which of the 2 is the right fit for me?

Great question. Hop on a call and we can hash out what works best for you right now, and make sure it’s in line with your goals and future. Both are valuable but timing for one over the other may make more sense for you. Let’s chat!

To your success,
