Are you sick of people treating your growing business like a hobby?

It is not always easy to build a creative business, especially if people don’t see the value in what you provide. 

I need to set better business boundaries.

Maybe if I up my prices it will get better.

How can I attract my ideal clients?

What does a stress free workflow look like?

How do I make my business legal?






I know how frustrating this is because I have been there too.

I am here to tell you how I navigated my way out of hobby and into business mode. Here is the deal, learn from my journey and get to success faster! I am sick of seeing passionate and creative photographers be taken advantage of, set your business up to be more than a free experience! 

Building your business on firm ground can make or break the dream of success. Slowly and part time is how I built this dream. I would stay up late and research websites lingo, and how to pay taxes. Let me share with you what I wish I had known when I started, I can save you a few long nights of hair pulling, and tell you how I did it, what I did wrong, and even offer some advice on what I would do again.

I am here to share with you my business course, so you can learn from my mistakes and join me as a successful business owner who knows when to say yes, and when to say no.

"Amanda has taught me so much about learning how to create lasting relationships with my clients as well as establishing healthy boundaries for my work/life balance! She's helped me recognize tools to help streamline my business side of operations so I have more time to focus on what's really important: my clients!"

This chapter covers much of what you need to build a foundation of success for a photography business. Covering topics like “when I decided to become an LLC” and “how I started making my own ledger to track money” are topics you can expect to feel more confident about after this chapter. Pay close attention to the non-paperwork related issues, like how to build boundaries and find ideal clients.

Without clients, it would be called a hobby. Let me tell you my secrets to connecting with clients and truly honoring those who trust me with their memories. I will talk about how I narrow down my clients, how I market to them, and how I onboard them so they keep coming back.

frequently asked questions

You will magically have a successful business boom, done. Just kidding, you will get an email with information on how to access the course and then you can start learning, so THEN you can have a successful business.

This material is perfect for any photography niche! When I started shooting professionally, I was mainly family, newborn, and seniors, but now I am primarily brands and weddings and all the information still applies!

Forever! When you buy I will send reminder emails so you don’t forget to do the work, but after that you will have access to rewatch and continue learning! Also, as I update and add bonus material, you also get those updates too!

Don’t we all need some affirmation that we are doing it all right? Yes, this would be great for anyone under 5 years of running a photography business. The topics covered would benefit all those still getting their foundation set as a business owner. 

Great news, I offer one on one mentoring and have many options where we can meet for 2 hours, or regularly for three months. You will get an email with that information upon purchase!

“This course was a game changer for my own photography business. She covered everything from booking the session, shooting the session, post-session workflow and some of the back office topics less seasoned business owners don’t always think about. She’s the first to offer a genuine compliment and cheer on others successes."

- Shey

Let’s be real - my business viewpoint is all about authenticity and credibility, so I am not going to throw you a curveball and tell you this offer is only available this week. Because I don’t plan on keeping this information from people.

So, the most accurate thing I can tell you is that by putting off purchasing “Building Your Business with Burman” - you will just be wasting more of your time, and money trying to figure it all out. Instead of treading water, how about you get on my boat, rest, learn, and prepare to sprint for the beach - and by beach I mean success.

Seven short years ago I was exactly where you are now!

I was a full time high school teacher using what little freetime I had to serve clients and grow my business. I learned some really hard lessons and I want to prevent others from going through the same headaches. 

This is important to me because I love seeing people succeed, did you see that I was a teacher? I thrive on sharing information, leading groups to “ah-ha” moments, and cheering students on. It is in my blood. 

The minute I decided to leave the classroom and become a full time professional photographer, I knew I would still teach, lead, and cheer. Learn how I pave my way to a full time photographer title and how I did it by creating a solid foundation to stand on!
