Let’s Do This!

Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here! My name is Heather Vanek and I’ve been running a successful photography studio for 11 years now. Well, it hasn’t always been successful. I had a few bumps in the road when I first started out (my first sale was only $100 – pitiful!). So I dove head first into all things marketing and sales to learn everything I could. There was NO way I was going to be a “starving artist”. Through lots of experiments, tweaks, and of course failures, I found the formula that works! My studio has continued to thrive even through the economic downturn of 2008 which means I get to do what I love with minimal headaches, and I get to spend lots of time with my family (the real reason we do this – amiright?!)

I don’t want to keep these little nuggets of info a secret though. I want to share them with you! After my family, the people I love most in this world are those in the photography world. I wouldn’t be where I am today without them. So there’s no way I’m going to stand by and watch my favorite peeps make the same mistakes over and over again. Let me show you what I’ve learned. From little tweaks to BIG changes, I know I can help you turn your photography biz from peanuts to profits.

(and just because I like to get sappy from time to time, here is a verse from one of my favorite songs. I think it describes our journey together perfectly!)

Cause I’m on top of the world, ‘ey
I’m on top of the world, ‘ey
Waiting on this for a while now
Paying my dues to the dirt
I’ve been waiting to smile, ‘ey
Been holding it in for a while, ‘ey
Take you with me if I can
Been dreaming of this since a child

And I know it’s hard when you’re falling down
And it’s a long way up when you hit the ground
Get up now, get up, get up now

-Imagine Dragons, On Top Of The World
