What's On The Hook?


Get Support and Encouragement from the TPS Community!

On the Hook is an accountability group led by longtime Portrait System Members Kevin Conde and Angie Whitten. The purpose of the group is to help you set goals and hold yourself accountable for reaching your objectives in your portrait photography business.


“This is an opportunity for each individual to take a step forward to grow their business by joining a community of like-minded individuals who are going through the exact same process that they are in—to help commiserate on the struggles, celebrate the successes, and receive answers to their questions about what they are going through while also building strong bonds. And to know that they are not alone.” —Kevin Conde


Along with your peers and Accountability Guides, you’ll set quarterly goals and get support in breaking them down into smaller, obtainable tasks to accomplish in the short-term. Step-by-step, with ongoing support from your colleagues, you’ll hear helpful advice and get a heads up about what to look out for next from people who have walked the same path you are walking.

This is a safe space where you can open up about your experience and your emotions and receive loving, ongoing support from a global community of portrait photographers.



Active members of The Portrait System are welcome to join our Accountability Group!

Whether you’ve been in business for a week or twenty years, or if you’ve just got the idea to start a business, this is a safe space for you to share your questions, hopes, fears, struggles, and successes with photographers around the world who are walking the same path as you.


“When you’re unsure of what to do in a situation or at a certain time, this is a safe place to come and get other people’s help. You’re face-to-face. It’s not just typing a message into Facebook and hoping somebody sees it. We’re here to uplift each other, to help through the victories and the struggles, and our main goal as the facilitators is to create a safe space for people to share those things and get help.” —Angie Whitten



We meet two times a week—face to face—on Zoom to discuss whatever people in the group need to discuss, and throughout the week, we use the dedicated “On the Hook” Facebook Group to stay in touch. Join the Facebook group and look out for the Zoom link posts each week. Bring your wisdom, your questions, or just tune in to find out what needs to be on your radar to succeed.
