Do you LOVE photography but can't figure out how to make money doing it?

Let's be honest - you can be the best photographer out there, but if you can't figure out how to make a living doing it, you'll get burnt out fast - and you won't have a business for very long. 

I help photographers scale to six figures - doing something they LOVE - while working LESS

In all my coaching, I have found that there are THREE types of photographers who need help.  

1. The newbie: this person needs help with everything from shooting to marketing to selling.

2. The creative: this person is a good photographer, but gets hives when thinking about selling & has a hard time staying focused/organized.

3. The enterpriser: this person can bootstrap & figure things out but can't seem to master scaling to six figures.

It's normal for you to you see yourself in one or more of these people ... but one should stand out

I've been where you are.

I've been ALL of these people I outlined at some point or another in my photography journey.

I initially started my own photography business because it was important for me to be there for my kids as they grew up, especially having a special needs son who needed lots and lots of attention….  but y’all know how hard this biz can be – from the constant “need to stay on top”, to “how do I price my work?” to “how do I file taxes?”…. it’s overwhelming, especially for us artists.  

Some of you are natural business people.  I am not.  I had to teach myself everything and it wasn’t easy.  I’d like to save some of you guys from that!

Marketing, getting clients, customer service, ordering sessions, designing albums, client management…. the list is LONG – we, as business owners, must have a handle on all of this – not to mention the TECHNICAL and creative side of what we do!  

It can be overwhelming…and if you’re poking around Facebook groups looking (begging) for help from other photographers, you may want to save yourself the headache and apply for access to my signature online course and coaching program.  

Studies show that the rate of success is much higher with those entrepreneurs who mentor under someone else; it’s the CONNECTION that makes the difference.

I have loved learning from Renee! The course is detailed and full of valuable information. I live in Australia where Senior Photography is not a thing. I do however feel fully equipped to successfully launch it as a service thanks to what Renee has taught me - from setup to pricing, product and shooting. She is SUPER helpful and very responsive. Renee ensured that all my questions were answered whenever they came up. I highly recommend her course.

Renee’s online course is worth every penny. She is an expert in all things Gen-Z & so much more!! She is a wealth of knowledge and the weekly calls with her alone priceless. From helping you get thru your blocks to strategizing with you on model teams, marketing or quite frankly anything that you need help with.  Renee is not only a leader in the senior industry but also a great educator who truly wants to see you succeed and reach your goals.

Ever wanted to know how successful photographers run their businesses?

This is your chance to find out EVERYTHING and get coaching from Renee herself

Is this course right for you?

  • Are you new to senior photography and feel totally overwhelmed?
  • Have you purchased other systems only to find out they don’t pertain to seniors at all?
  • Do you know who Gen Z clients are and how to market to them? 
  • Do you struggle with the business part of photography and wonder how you’ll ever turn a profit?
  • Are you giving your images away and not selling prints or products, thereby leaving money on the table?

That list could be ten times longer but you get the idea.  How much longer are you willing to wait before you make a change?

If you are spending countless hours editing or figuring out a marketing plan OR if you still don’t really understand how to shoot efficiently and effectively for Gen Z clients – you NEED this course.

No one has EVER offered such an in-depth look behind the curtains at all the various facets of running a successful senior business – it’s never been done before.  Renee has offered mentoring in the past, but not at the level of THIS course.  You will learn every single part of starting and sustaining a successful senior photography business.

There is nothing that is off the table – all questions will be answered and you will be pushed to get outside of your comfort zone – in all areas of your life.  This course is more than just a photography lesson .. it’s a very deep look at how you function in all areas of your life and why it is so important to have all those pieces working well. 

Momentum is KEY – start now and don’t look back.

I have been delivering online digital galleries and was reaching that point of burnout and not feeling and value in return. Ready to take the next step, I made the decision to invest in my business. I was expecting to learn about the typical things that go along with running an IPS photography business (client communication, target clients, IPS client sales, pricing structure, etc). What I didn't expect was the growth and change that happened internally within myself - as an individual & business owner.  Renee's course is so much more than just: here's how to price, here's how to "sell". It's taking a long hard look at your beliefs, values, even fears about yourself, your relationship with money & discovering that it's these very things that are standing in your way from becoming the best person/business owner you can be. Renee is passionate about truly helping you understand, see & feel your value & self-worth. While going through the program, I felt as if it were designed just for me specifically, not just another program written for the masses. The amount of content I received surpassed any expectation I could have possibly had. I was blown away by the level of support, knowledge, and love she had to share. Renee has this amazing gift to help you take a good hard look at your business from an entrepreneurial point of view while at the same time guiding you to reflect upon your inner self, allowing the room for love, compassion, grace AND most importantly GROWTH. 

I don't know if I can even adequately describe the experience that took place over the course of these last few months. I went into this coaching program expecting to come out with just a new business model. Today, I can't help but feel like a new person, a human being who knows her "worth", who knows she's "deserving", who is learning that she's perfectly and wonderfully made just the way she is, who's still understanding that the way I am designed has an intricate connection to those I serve & love (both personally & professionally), and if not most importantly that I am right where I need to be at this moment in my life.

Level Up is it worth the investment - 1000000% As Renee says at the beginning of the course, "Growth/change never happens by staying in your comfort zone, it's only once you step out that you start to grow" and for this, I will forever be grateful!  Thank you Renee for caring & loving us enough to share with us, to support us & for being honest with us  - not just as business owners but as human beings trying to find their place in this world or just maybe ourselves. 

I've been mentoring and coaching photographers for the last several years, but nothing was getting as in-depth as I wanted it to be. The type of work I'm mainly interested in doing is transformational - I want to work with photographers are are READY to leap. Photographers who don't make excuses for themselves - those who are hungry to create a better life for themselves; those who are tired of feeling under-valued and under-paid.

I couldn't accomplish that in just a one day mentoring session. Or skype calls every few months. It needed to be MORE.

So I created a hybrid online course + coaching program that covers EVERYTHING that I do - and have done - in my business to create the six figure income I earn as a senior photographer. That is not including my coaching or events. JUST seniors. I am passionate about being transparent about this, because many photographers who teach tend to mix that income into their photography income - and that is not fair for their students. I want you to know that I am still running my photography business. 

Which is another reason why this online course makes sense for ME as well. I can still give you the push and the coaching you need without extending myself too much either. 

But this program is not for everyone. 

It’s not for photographers who are not interested in actually doing the work.

It’s not for people who don’t want to take responsibility for their own lives and businesses.

It’s not for those who are cynical or unwilling to be coached.

IT IS for photographers who don’t want to spend years spinning their wheels trying to figure out the solution to higher sales. 

IT IS for go-getters and big thinkers.

IT IS for risk takers & those with an entrepreneurial spirit.

The course is delivered online & is JAM PACKED with eight modules, extra bonuses, years of Q&A call recordings, and lots more.  It includes EVERY single thing I have used and still use in my business on a daily basis. 

I pride myself on “no fluff” and will tell it like it is;  the investment into the program is substantial so you must be ready to make big changes in your business and you must be coachable. 

If you are ready for a transformative experience which will affect every other aspect of your life, schedule a call with me to see if you are a good fit.  If so, we’ll get you started on this journey right away – and if not, I will help point you in the direction that is best for you. 

Literally the sweetest review I've ever received

I love helping people with their businesses, but it's really about the connection for me. Angie shares what makes Level Up different from other mentor programs and I just love her feedback .... this is why I love doing what I do!


Schedule Your Call With Renee


In order to make sure the course I'm offering is right for you, we need to chat! I'm incredibly passionate about working with photographers to build the business of their dreams without continuing to sacrifice themselves or their families in the process. We are so much more than what we do and this coaching program takes that into account; I help you work through personal limitations so you can excel in business AND your life. 

I'm a pro at helping you weed through years of "head trash" to get to exactly what you need to do to move your business forward, and I will hold you accountable throughout the process, but with love and respect. 

This course includes FOUR MONTHS of coaching from me personally so I'm SUPER excited about being able to connect with photographers in this way. I am deeply invested into your experience, so I will push you when necessary and will expect you to show up throughout the process. 

I'm not offering it to everyone, so let's see if it's a fit for you and your business


  • please make sure you are not driving or distracted for this call
  • this is a call to see if you are a good fit for the program, so we will be asking you questions to find this out; it is not free coaching call with Renee - no business advice will be given during this call
  • you must be ready to make changes now - not at some point in the future

 Please be ready to discuss the details of your business on this call - we need to cover a lot of material in a short amount of time and I want to make sure we get to everything - make sure you fill out the form after you schedule a time with me. 

We use zoom for our calls, so you will get an email with the info.  

**Limited Times Available** - if you do not see a time you can schedule, check back in a week and see what times have been opened; I like to keep these groups to under 8 if possible.

I have LOVED working with Renee. She has opened up my mindset to being more positive in the sense that it's ok to not be crazy busy, it's ok that I'm choosing my family over my career for now. I for sure need photography to make a living and definitely work my but off to make sure I get all of my expenses taken care of (I have a lot as I own/purchase my building, health insurance plus life and my husband doesn't get benefits). But it's ok to not over-push myself and just enjoy my time off during slower seasons plus realize there is enough business in my very small town for all of us. I don't feel the pressure that I had in the past with my "competition". 

I love all of the course info that she gives too. It's a LOT and very overwhelming but it never goes away so I just set little goals to get through chunks of changes that I want to make for my business. I'm not ready for my own model program right now but love that I can use the tips and tricks later when I'm ready to start a program in a few years when my kids are older. 

I raised my prices 2 years ago and I'm finally confident in my changes and can't wait to dive further into changes with Renee's info. 

Her help with my mindset has been the biggest benefit for me and I know that her course will help me slowly as I'm ready to make the changes. It's helped me to realize we are all on different paths and I don't need to impress anyone except my customers to make the living that I want to make and while I'm doing that I'm rocking being a mom and just taking the time to slow down and enjoy my kids.

What an amazing experience!  Honestly, I have done a few mentor opportunities in the past.  I can't say that I would have given them a 10/10. Not because they didn't know their game, but because of lack of communication and follow through. My biggest concern is communication and the availability to reach out.  Renee seemed like she was available to us as needed and if not immediately, she would get back to me as soon as she could.  More so than I ever expected!  I love that she used new platforms and technology to provide the best learning environment for us.  The app she used for communication was awesome! 

I also loved that we had a small group of people in the class that we were able to communicate with and have calls with.  You learn so much from others, regardless at what level they are at in their journey.  One of the things I loved most about Renee is that she calls before you commit to the course and talks about everything.  This allowed for both of us to see if this was the right way to go and a good fit for both of us.  That point of contact was key!  To be honest, it was a little more than I had intended to spend on a mentorship.  With that being said, let me say, it was worth every penny!  Had I not talked to her and gotten that call, I cannot say that I would have signed up if I just saw what was being covered and the price. 

Learning from her what would be covered, how things worked and hearing how invested she was in her love of educating and helping other photographers sold me right away!  Words can never express how much Level Up has meant to me and my business!  I would highly recommend Renee and Level Up to anyone in photographer, irregardless of what level you are at!  I felt like I knew my craft and was in a good place.  However, I wanted to step up my game and really provide my clients with an amazing experience.  Renee has helped me do that!

Renee has always been one of my favorite educators. I have always felt that her knowledge of the senior market is so in-depth and so her marketing strategies are always spot on. I am always looking to what she does, not just to follow, but to understand. I signed up for Momentum last year because I wanted to learn more about her marketing style (How does she do it?!) and Whoa!!...I was blown away. The way she combines her marketing knowledge with psychology and (life/biz coach/mindset) is...there is nothing else like it. There is so much in there that helped me create more focus in my business and actually my life as well. It felt SO GOOD to start seeing things clearly.

Once I began to remove some mind blocks, I knew I was ready to take the next step; to Level Up. I have known where my weaknesses are as far as my business. (even though it’s good) There are a number of things that I just kept trying to “fix” over and over, but never getting a better result. I knew that investing in Renee to coach me would finally stop me from trying to “fix” things myself and it was the best decision I ever made. Not only to have a clearer focus on my business as a whole, but also through this crazy tough time we are going through. Having Renee coach me and also having our small group helping each other out has been nothing short of amazing - It has kept my mind clear of fear and just moving forward, even in the really tough days.

And for those who worry about the “investment”, it has been the best business investment I’ve made in myself and my business. AND even though we are going through this crazy time in our country, I have already made that investment back and then some. No joke. And to be very honest, I don’t know if I could have been able to say that right now if not for making the investment in Level Up. When you recognize that you are ready, then just do it: Level Up. Thank you Renee!!

Level UP with Renee Bowen was the absolute best thing for my business. It was an investment I was nervous to make, but after a couple weeks I realized the value of everything I was getting in this group. Renee keeps the group of people small so that she can focus more on each specific business. The small group was also helpful because we got to learn from each other as well! Before this coaching I felt as if I was drowning in my business, I had all of this information from other courses I had taken but I didn't know what to do with it all. Renee helped me to turn my focus onto implementing all of it into my business. Renee is a marketing genius, which is the main reason her education stuck out to me more than others. She helps you change your business to cater to your clients and create an experience that brings in your ideal clients. I wouldn't trust anyone else with coaching my business into the success that it is now. I have never felt so comfortable with where I am in my business. I cannot wait to see how much everything changes with the new school year! I cannot say thank you enough! If you are feeling stuck in your business and are wondering if this will work for you, then reach out to Renee because you definitely need this in your life.

I signed up for Renee’s level up program because I was looking to educate myself further. I absolutely love her photography style, she understands the GenZ generation and she is an amazing person with lots of talents. I knew that should would be able to help me with what she has to offer! After signing up for her program, I received all the goods. Let me tell you, it’s a lot of information. It was a little overwhelming but, I am able to keep this information forever. I watched everything and was able to take bits and pieces and apply it to my business. The zoom calls with her are so helpful and gives you a sense of comfort knowing she is there every step of the way. As I grow my business, I will be able to apply more and more of her business model. This class is completely loaded with an abundance of information from a very talented photographer! I highly recommend her program to all photographers! You will not be disappointed!  

Don't Wait!


You owe it to yourself to put your business first for once.
