Own Your Own Business.

Make Your Dreams Come True.



Thousands of photography entrepreneurs around the world credit Sue Bryce and her teachings for helping them break through the blocks that stop them from valuing their art, their work, their time, and themselves, so that they can achieve the business and the life of their dreams.

If you want more for yourself, if you are feeling dissatisfied with the work you are doing and the life you are leading, it’s in your power to change your circumstance. You just need to take the first step and invest in yourself and then keep taking step after step until you achieve your dream.

Sue’s educational system is the most-comprehensive photography education you can get. It’s the very best way you can learn about building a photography business from home or wherever you shoot. With hundreds of videos covering everything from camera basics, to advanced lighting techniques, to networking & marketing, there’s something here for every level of photographer to guide you in bringing your craft and business ability to its full power.

We have the whole process mapped out, step-by-step, and a compassionate supportive community like no other that will help you on your way.

To give you a taste of all we have to offer, here are the courses voted as our Top Ten most popular by our members. We hope they inspire you to start going after what you desire today! As long as you begin and commit to taking one step every day, you will reach your goals – little by little one goes far.



Learn how to achieve a beautiful, super-soft look in your photos by manipulating light. You’ll learn how to identify the places the light fills most in any room, how to use a simple V-flat to flatten light, and how to use an inexpensive piece of foamcore as the ultimate light reflector. You’ll also learn how to use gear to mimic natural light.



Manifesting success doesn’t just come about from putting your dreams out into the universe. Unless you take the steps to actually manifest those dreams, they will remain that – just dreams. These videos will inspire you and also give you great advice on how to brush up on the three areas that lead to manifestACTION –  emotion, mindset, and ACTION.



If you don’t address the problems you have that ultimately affect your ability to RECEIVE and MANAGE money, you just cannot run a successful business! Learn the eight styles of being blocked around building wealth, so you can apply the antidotes for healing those blocks and take steps toward manifesting a more enriched and enriching future.



An outside shoot can be a creative and fun way to get outdoors in the fresh air with your clients. Watch Sue and Gerson create a dreamy outdoor set in a parking lot, using a carport frame and lengths of netting curtain, polyester chiffon, & silk fabric secured with clamps. As the sunlight comes through the layers of chiffon, the effect is incredible.



Sue pulls out her black-belt karate skills (I’m not kidding!), and her awesome ability to teach all skill levels at once in this special bonus session on print sales for bridging the gap between startup/folio build and package sales. You know that awkward gap between shoot & burn and $1,200? Boy, has Sue got some great solutions for you –  Ninja level!



In three videos, Sue gives you a recipe for a successful marketing system. Sue teaches you how to develop your own brand clarity by understanding the experience you provide to your clients. When you have clarity about the service you give, you can express your pricing & product with certainty, confidence, and conviction. This ability to make a strong offer is the cornerstone to effectively marketing your photography business.



Posing is one of the most important parts of being a portrait photographer. When a woman walks through your studio door, knowing exactly which poses will flatter her is going to help you focus on giving her GREAT SERVICE. Instead of worrying about how to pose, the Posing Breakdown course will have you ready to rock your session and make your client feel great every step of the way!



If you are struggling with painful situations in your life, don’t miss the opportunity to watch Sue Bryce’s videos on Self-Value! This could be the catalyst you need to turn your life around!
Pain is inevitable. The secret is to choose the pain that brings you closer to your heart’s desire. When you choose to face & embrace your fears, deciding to live in a way where you take full accountability and responsibility for your own life, you can move mountains. But it’s up to you to make that choice and keep moving forward.



This video from the Live Archive was shot at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic when lockdowns and quarantines were sweeping the globe. Sue offers words of encouragement, reminding everyone to practice to be prepared to go back to work when it is possible to re-open their businesses.
This video is full of lighting hacks that can be accomplished with any lighting setup you have — natural light, constant light, or strobe. It’s all about experimenting with light and playing!



Simple, sexy, and, iconic. This is one of Sue’s most favorite and most requested sessions. Through soft back light, a blow-up mattress, and white sheets, everybody will look incredible in their images from this sensual, monochromatic, and highly-effective and affordable shoot.
