Member Testimonials

The Portrait System is helping make the transition from being a weddings-only studio to a weddings-and-portraits studio seamless and simple. Extremely high-quality education, a wonderful resource, and a no-brainer if you're looking to create a profitable portrait business. Susan Stripling
The Portrait System has been the single-most impactful thing I've incorporated into growing my business, and in many ways, my life! Andrew Knowles
The Portrait System has changed my photography for the better and changed my business to one that I’m proud to talk to everyone about she really has made me value my creativity as a photographer. Ola Adegoroye
The Portrait System allowed me to grow from hobbyist with a borrowed camera and a dream, to professional portrait photographer with a six-figure business. There is no way I would be here without her education. Cat Ford-Coates
Sue is not just a mentor, in the area of photography; she's a life coach in the area of living. Using Sue's talks, and instructional videos, I've not only launched a successful business, experienced exponential growth with my portraiture skills, but have also overcome serious blocks which were standing in my way of success; such as: self esteem/self value issues, a fear of asking for money, as well as the overall negative self talk, which can destroy the foundation of any business. Simply put, The Portrait System, was the best investment I have made into myself, and my business, since it began! David Lee
The Portrait System has given me ALL of the tools needed to take me from a "shoot and burn" photographer making less then $200 a session to a portrait photographer with a studio and over a $1200 average and growing in less than 4 months. Ashley Lindsey
Building a successful and sustainable photography business is no secret anymore. The Portrait System provides you with every tool you need to master your craft, how to market and sell and overall how to become the best version of yourself. You just have to do the work! Ursula Schmitz
By far the best investment you will ever make for your business and for yourself. I will never let my subscription lapse. Never. Liz Wikstrom Barlak
Sue Bryce changed my life. There are a lot of web-based photography education sites but very few even touch on teaching how to successfully run a photography business. The Portrait System will teach you how to create amazing portraits but it will also give you the tools you need to create a thriving, profitable, and sustainable business. The icing on the cake -- it's affordable and the community of mentors and fellow photographers is so supportive and willing to share their experiences. Give up 7 lattes a month join today! Brian Bielanski
The Portrait System helped me transition from being an accountant, to photographing in my home full time to now having my own studio. However, I grew not only in my photography skills, but, more as an entrepreneur, challenging myself outside my comfort zone in order to connect with clients and gain sales while still enjoying what I love to do. Celestina Ando
In my photography journey, I have tried many educational platforms, but none felt as comprehensive as The Portrait System. Here was a place where I had access to my mentor, content that truly guides one through the path in becoming a professional photographer and connection to one of the most supportive communities online. Without a doubt, if not for Sue and her teachings, I would not be seeing the level of business success that I am seeing today. Join now, absorb the wealth of knowledge, put in the hard work and you will achieve your goals! Neon Howe
