At Length

Over the years, Alex has been a mentor, advisor and sounding board for numerous photographers and small business owners. As number of requests for Alex’s business assistance began to skyrocket, she decided to create a coaching program to solve the common problems pet photographers were experiencing, and her Business Acceleration Program for Pet Photographers was born.

Since its launch, Alex has coached over 80 pet photographers from all over the world during her eight-week, one-on-one program. Some of her clients have been in business for 30 years, some are just starting out, and others are transitioning from a different genre of photography into pets. Her program has helped accelerate them forward, enabling them to run a successful, streamlined businesses which suit their lifestyles, and consistently attract paying clients. 

Alex’s program is unique in that you receive an entire pet photography business sytem tailored to you, where Alex does as much of the work for you as she can. She even creates your communication templates for you, adds them into a client record management database for ease of use, and edits them for you during your live coaching calls so they are ready to be sent to your clients. No other photography coach provides one-on-one services as in depth as Alex does for her Business Acceleration Program clients.  

What makes a great coach?

They say one of the most important things to consider about a business coach is their track record.

  • Is their own business a market leader?
  • Do they have solid, real-world experience in fluctuating economic and social media environments?
  • Do they practice what they preach?
  • Is their knowledge of the industry current?
  • Does their experience focus on the genre of photography they are known for?

Alex recommends that you find a coach who has the business success you aspire to as there’s nothing better than learning directly from someone who has already done the hard yards and who has years of experience under their belt.

A coach in any aspect of business needs to be transparent. They need to talk about their failures as well as their successes and offer analysis of both. The best coaches are provocative, facilitative, and esteem building. Alex encompasses all of these things, and more. She understands the ongoing requirements of running a successful pet photography business and has an innate ability to effectively problem solve issues and challenges for her coaching clients.

Alex says “I’m very transparent in only taking on coaching clients who I believe will do the work and who are driven to succeed and places in my coaching programs are sought after and limited. I’m also a full-time working photographer in between, living the instruction I provide and practicing what I preach. This enables me to stay up to date with even the slightest change in the global pet photography market, which flows on to me being an even more effective coach to my pet photography clients. Whatever you are going through in the industry, I have been through or am experiencing too.“

Demand for Alex’s animal photography coupled with her skill as an astute businesswoman, have kept her brand Houndstooth Studio flourishing at the top of its field in an intensely competitive environment for more than 12 years.
