Beate Chelette, a veteran in the photography industry with over 20 years of experience in all phases of the business, will launch the “7 Step Video Bootcamp” a free online course that will help today’s professional photographers increase their incomes in a difficult economy. The free Bootcamp course is a limited time offer, and will only be available during the month of August by registering at http://www.photobizcoach.com/bootcamp.
Chelette who is highly-respected in the business, is the industry’s “PhotoBiz Coach.” Located in Los Angeles, she consults, counsels and coaches a roster of photography professionals, helping them develop, strategize and grow their photography businesses and ultimately increase their billings.
The “7 Step Video Bootcamp” takes photographers step by step through crucial topics like Social Media, SEO, Marketing, Branding and Production, and also includes steps on finding clients and keeping motivated. It is closely aligned with her PhotoBiz Intensive series which she created to educate photographers on ways to run a successful photography business. “I wanted to share some tips and techniques with the free Bootcamp course that I’ve used to actually help photographers be more profitable,” says Chelette.
Chelette understands the sweeping changes overtaking the photography business, the transition to digital formats, the switch from location and assignment to stock photography and the surge in cutting edge communication technologies like Pinterest and Instagram that are changing the photography landscape. She aids photographers in their aim of building their businesses in a brave new world of instant images, a world where anyone with a camera seems qualified to shoot a photo.
It’s estimated that the number of professional photographers in the U.S. is approximately 160,000, and will increase 15% by 2020 due to the explosion of digital technology -- however most photographers struggle with making a living.
As the PhotoBiz Coach, Chelette has had tremendous success with her clients who follow her systems and coaching advice. Recently, clients who participated in her private coaching services have immediately secured jobs with well-known clients such as Tommy Bahama, or have taken their career to the next level by signing with large New York representation firms. Clients who follow her programs have been able to open their own photo representation firms such as Big Picture Reps http://www.bigpicturereps.com, even securing award-winning celebrity photographers such as Los Angeles-based Michael Grecco. Grecco, also her coaching client, just signed a deal to syndicate his stock photos with three major international agencies, Superstock, editorial syndication giant dpa, and Aflo in Japan. Venusstock, http://www.venusstock.com, a company specializing in health, beauty and wellness photography, was able to go from idea to launch in only one year under Chelette’s guidance, and now works with several major pharmaceutical companies on large branding campaigns.
In her long career, Chelette has had exposure in all aspects of photography, and has been a photo editor, photographer’s representative as well as a still photography producer for national and international A- list clients such as BMW, Levi’s and Coldwell Banker.
She created, built and eventually sold her own company and signature brand of stock photography called BEATEWORKS in 2006, in a multi-million dollar deal with Corbis Images, the leading visual media provider to creative professionals, owned by Bill Gates. She was retained on staff at Corbis Images as Senior Director of Entertainment, directing all their entertainment brands, including the internationally recognized flagship brand Outline, before launching Photo Biz Coach.com in 2009.
Chelette also acts as a photography dealmaker, recently creating and brokering an acquisition deal between the companies Superstock http://www.superstock.com and Science Faction.
She is also a qualified expert witness in court cases involving photographic images.
