Hey there, photographers!

i'm annemie tonken*, and I want to help you Run a business that’s profitable, sustainable, ANd actually fun to run (imagine that!).

Current statistics show that 60% of photographers close their businesses within the first year, and that of the remaining 40%, more than half fail in the 2nd year.


I’ve been beating those odds since I left my “real job” in 2010, and I fully believe that you can, too. In fact, my goal is to change that statistic altogether by sharing simple business strategies and systems that actually work.

There’s nothing worse than talented people giving up their dreams because they get bogged down by the complexity of running a business.

The truth is, it doesn’t have to be that hard.

It is absolutely, 100% possible to run a sustainable, profitable photography business that you love, and I can show you how.

* In case you’re wondering, Annemie is the Dutch version of Anne Marie, and it’s pronounced like the -onomy in autonomy or astronomy ;)


Every week, I go live on Facebook to give a short, actionable tutorial or lesson on topics relevant to both experienced and new photographers. Most lessons are supplemented by a free cheat sheet, checklist, or worksheet that will walk you through implementing the lesson as quickly and easily as possible.

I also offer 1:1 consulting, coaching, and mentoring for people looking for quick, 100% personalized advice and help to solve a specific problem or catapult their business to the next level. Services include help with pricing, websites, and custom copywriting for your website, marketing materials, or bio.
