What If...


You could feel totally at ease asking for advice from experienced photographers, knowing they’ve got your back and want to see you succeed?

You were surrounded by like-minded women, both online and in-person, who shared the same fears, doubts and goals as you, whilst you learnt, laughed, cried and dreamed together?

You knew exactly how to operate and grow your photography business in a way that was inherently connected to WHO you are, and as a result, magnetised your dream clients again and again?

 

all without having to invest thousands of dollars in short-term 1:1 mentoring and spending all your time finding authentic business relationships you can trust?

Here’s the problem...

Unfortunately, this isn’t the current reality for the majority of photographers. Most actually begin their businesses like this - 


No community or hands on support

I know what it feels like to start out: blindly learning to build a brand on your own while juggling the demands of life/family/motherhood/your regular 9-5, battling inevitable comparisonitis, feeling pressured to figure out a niche offering while simultaneously scrambling to snap up every opportunity that presents itself. (Because #BillsBillsBills.)

Breathe easy, queen – you’re not alone. (*So* not alone.) That’s why I created the Camera Queens: because I know how lonely it feels to have to pave your own way with little commercial experience and even less support.


No potent branding
With nothing but pricing and availability to set them apart, their marketing strategy is to specialise in way too many things at once, cross their fingers and hope for the best. They don’t know who they are in this field, and neither do their potential customers.


No powerful online presence

Most photographers don’t know how to bring their most potent selves to their online space. I’m talking copy, graphic design and nailing your authentic expression in a way your niche and ideal client is craving to feel.


No business experience

1 in 3 new small businesses fail within the first year of starting their business. It’s not enough to have talent; knowing how YOU need to show up in your business is what takes you from hobbyist to heart based business owner.

 

In my experience, all of this eventually leads to photographers feeling isolated, in scarcity and making one too many mistakes, costing you time, money and energy (that you don’t have) which holds your business back.


Soon enough, comparison ends up running the show and both you and your business suffer.


You end up relying on generic free resources and groups that aren’t specific to your unique business, or overpaying for private mentorship without a supportive community to lean on behind the scenes.


Women begin pitching themselves against one another, and eventually it drains the life and magic from your business and your passion.


Well, not on my watch!

Hi, I’m Belle

 

Award-winning published photographer. Speaker. Proud mama of two. Unapologetic feminist, collector of punk records, and enthusiastic Espresso Martini drinker (but not all at the same time...usually.).

 

I’ve seen, done, shot, won, and experienced a lot of cool shit during my career as one of Australia’s most sought- after professional photographers – and now, I’m sharing it all with you. Why? Because, hot damn, I wish I’d had a no-BS mentor (and crackin’ community to boot) when I was starting out.

 

I had to learn the hard way, making plenty of mistakes, investing thousands of dollars and hours in countless mentors and putting a lot on the line to turn my passion into a potent, multiple six figure business.


In the end, it wasn’t just the education or the networking alone that made me successful…


It was the support and strength of the community I worked so hard to create around me,
that helped me feel seen, safe and held enough to embody the truth of who I am as a photographer.

 

It doesn’t matter how good you are behind a camera or how much potential you have. The power and impact of your work will only ever be as successful as how you feel when you show up for it – when you find your focus.

 

 

As a wild advocate for women supporting women, I created the Camera Queens because I know how lonely it feels to have to pave your own way with no support.


As a fierce advocate for photographers having the tools and support they need to thrive, I just knew I had to create something that the industry hadn’t seen before; something that I so desperately needed at certain points of my career. A community where authenticity and collaboration are at the forefront, and you’re free to focus on what truly lights you up!


The Camera Queens is the home to all my secrets to building a potent photography business - The mind-blowing tools and technical skills, personal development, business mentoring and the life-changing community element that truly is my superpower.

I LOVE THIS, I'M SO IN!

Who is this for? 


The Camera Queens is a community for women (or those identifying as) and non-binary folk, with a special focus on:

โœ” Emerging Portrait Photographers - Whether you’re a hobbyist, brand new biz owner, or a creative of any kind with some basic camera knowledge and a desire to do the inner work - this is your new home for education, direction, biz knowledge and the community you need to hit the ground running and THRIVE from the start.

โœ” Experienced Storytellers - Whether you’ve had 5 years or 15 years behind the camera, it’s easy to find yourself stuck, stagnant and seeking your next level of success. This is your chance to unlock the potency of your passion, earn more, play more and feel undeniably supported in the way you’ve always wanted.

 

We’re here to be change-makers, trend-setters, rule- breakers, and mindset-disrupters; to stand proudly, confidently in our weirdness while daring to do things differently. We believe that *vanilla* only belongs in a vodka martini, never in your personality. Individuality is a muse; difference is a teacher - and celebrating both is just how we roll.

TL;DR: We’re quirky and we know it - and never apologise for it.

- CAMERA QUEENS

 

Why I’m Different:

One look at my social media and it won’t take you long to realise that I’m an open book - when we’re on our live calls and in person shooting together, I don’t hold back. I’m here to tell you everything I know, and help you make it your own.

My mission is to support female and non-binary professional photographers to find their focus, live in alignment, stand in their power, and become the best version of themselves as they strive to create successful, creative businesses that go the distance.

I’ve won a long list of awards and have mastered the art of moving past that fear of failure and fear of being seen. I’ve lived and breathed this work for 11 years and I have created a successful multiple 6 figure photography biz. I want all of this for you!

I’m not interested in creating just another vanilla cookie cutter community. I don’t just want to share all my tips and resources with you, I want to see you SHINE.  

Imagine how you’d feel if you knew you had a team of creative industry leaders backing you with limitless compassion, unwavering support, and the space to take risks (knowing that you’ll land safely), while being surrounded by a community of like-minded, passionate, kickass humans that just *get* you.

Collaboration over competition is the new way of doing business, and together, we are a force to be reckoned with!

Maybe it’s the pure adrenalin rush of knowing you’re following your greatest desire, that all your dreams are waiting on the other side of that click. Or maybe it’s a little voice inside your head telling you you’re not good enough. It won't be right for you. You can’t make this investment in yourself, in your dream.

Take a deep breath. I got you.

If buyer’s remorse kicks in and you can’t shake it. If Camera Queens is not the right fit at this time, hit me up via email within thirty days of signing up, and I'll return your investment in full. It's that simple. No tricks, no gimmicks.

I believe in you, and I believe in this community. We're going to change the game together.

LET'S CHAT

"So many things! The amazing community, all the women in this group are amazing, I’ve made life long friends here. Our community feels like family. The content has been incredible, I’ve loved learning more about myself, expanding my knowledge, figuring out who I am and what I want, all the photography knowledge. Joining CQ was like divinely timed for me, exactly what I needed to succeed this second time around (my last ‘business’ was me just mucking around and not really showing up - could have easily been the same this time)."

Amanda

“I love feeling part of something. A group of women that are all so unique and amazing and strong, and as a group so positive and supportive. I'm not the most active member but I'm here for it all the same."

Janine 

“I love the ongoing support not only from Belle but from other Queens. It’s so nice to have a community to bounce ideas off, help solve problems and generally just hang out with. Camera queens catch ups always leave you buzzing."

Rachel 

Got Questions?

"I love the vibe of the hive! I always walk away from every class with a smile and can-do attitude. I’ve learnt more about photography, running a small biz & myself in this last year than I have in my entire life!! The energetics of the Queens is next level. Women are phenomenal and that alone is celebrated being part of the hive! So grateful!"

Sarah 

We believe in community over competition, that two heads are better than one, a safe place to vent is an

underrated business resource, and that loneliness ain’t your friend – but hot damn, we sure wanna be.


See you on the inside, Queen!
