Become the “GO TO” Photographer in your niche with customers lining up wanting YOU as their Photographer. Create your own unique Signature Style that’s so undeniably you and only YOU can create… a style you become known and recognised for instantly.
The sad truth is that most Photographers fail within the first few years of business or never become more than a “hobbyist” because they don’t know how to run a successful business. We put so much of our heart and soul into our work… don’t you think it’s time to make a living out of it?
I’m struggling being seen and feel invisible because our market is so oversaturated
I can’t compete with the “Shoot & Burn” Photographers down the road and they are stealing all of our customers
I overthink and get anxious before the shoot and after when I’m about to press send and show clients their photos worried they won’t like them
I can’t afford to turn away business, even though it’s not what I love to shoot
I don’t feel my work is good enough to confidently raise my prices even though I know I should be charging more
I want to be seen as a Professional Photographer NOT a “hobbyist” but I just don’t even know what a Professional is
Let’s be honest, there are a million photographers these days and everyone thinks they’re a “photographer”.
I was out grabbing my morning coffee the other day and a woman was showing me her photos on Instagram of a family she’d just captured.
She was just starting out, had no training and was unashamedly calling herself a photographer.
But WHAT IS a Professional Photographer??
With the quality of mobile phones nowadays and semi-professional cameras easily accessible, the ability to take a picture at any given moment has broadened the photography business.
Photography “Influencers” are leveraging this eager market of hobbyist photographers and teaching THEIR unique style to the masses.
As a result, the industry is oversaturated with photographers producing similar styles of work… which means customers choose based on price because everyone looks the same.
So let’s create a SIGNATURE STYLE for YOU that the hobbyist and “shoot & burn” photographers and your customers cannot replicate.
Think about it …why would someone pay premium prices for you, when the photographer down the road charges pennies for the EXACT SAME WORK.
Don’t you think it’s time you create work so UNIQUE and so undeniably YOU that you become the “GO TO” photographer in your niche.
I’m here to tell you that after photographing more than 20,000 families over 28 years in business, I no longer need to market my business.
The families I photographed in my first few years in business are still booking me TODAY.
Think about someone walking into a friend’s home and immediately exclaiming “omg that’s a Katrina Christ“. It’s pretty cool I can tell you.
One of my favourite lines I ever heard was, “I’ve always wanted a Katrina Christ” – BOOM YESSSSSSSS!
My brand and SIGNATURE STYLE is so recognisable, people will often see artwork on client walls and say “that’s a Katrina Christ”
This is not a new concept, lots of artists have their own Signature Style… When you see an Andy Warhol painting, you know exactly who the artist is because you recognise his Signature Style.
So let me ask you… what makes YOU different?
How are YOU going to stand out in a crowd of thousands, all swaddling babies and placing them in a bowl? Or families being photographed in a field with a rustic preset over them?
How did I come up with my signature style? I am renowned for my black & white photography. From the start I wanted to create my own style, stand out from the crowd and have my work recognised. This is why I am here to help you make your artwork distinguible.
No more shooting what everyone else is doing and no more shooting a genre just because you think it’s going to make you money!
This comes down to finding what makes you truly happy and what you are genuinely passionate about. Because if this is your long-term career and you are serious, you need to choose something you LOVE otherwise you will end up resenting it.
When you are happy and passionate, it lasts forever. I have been in business for over 28+ years and I can still say hand on my heart that I still LOVE what I do.
You need to have a unique POINT OF DIFFERENCE to distinguish yourself from all other Photographers in your niche. Standing out from the crowd with your own unique Signature Style is your unfair advantage. Can you see the power of this?
The market is oversaturated with Photographers producing the exact same work. Create something different and more unique and you will stand out from the crowd.
Create something different and unique and YOU will become the go to Photographer in your market.
The “shoot and burn” Photograhers aren’t stealing your customers, you aren’t giving your customers any reason to choose YOU over them.
If you’re customers feel they can take the same photo or get the exact same work froma c heaper photographer, they will always go for the cheaper option.
You need to create work that is more desirbale, remarkable and more unique then all other photographers in your niche.
Shoot like a boss with your own unique Signature Style.

I’m Katrina Christ! Owner and Master Photographer at Katrina Christ Photographer. I’ve had my Family Portraiture Studio here in Brisbane for over 28 years now and am still as in love with Photography as I was when I started.
I built a 7-Figure Photography business, Franchised, Judged, am Internationally Awarded and have photographed over 20,000 families with lifetime customers.
I am a Mum to three beautiful daughters, a wife to one lucky husband (or so I tell him teeheee), a hockey player (admittedly not a very good one but I love it) and a lover of salt n vinegar chips.
I am a BIG believer that every single Professional Photographer CAN be successful… and I am living proof because if I can, so can you!
I went from not being able to afford a cup of coffee to building a Million Dollar Photography Business. I haven’t come from a wealthy family nor was I around other creatives or photographers.
I made my own way… determined not to be a “starving artist” and provide for my family.
I have walked your walk, I know it can be tough… but if you want success badly enough, you need to start investing in yourself and your business!
Not every master photographer will straight shoot the truth of what it really takes to build a successful business.
Because I’m not just a lucky Photographer who stumbled into a Million Dollar business, I built my business from strategies and processes that truly WORK.
Now I’m sharing everything that I’ve learned with you because I want you to feel about your business the same way that I feel about mine.
Are you ready to find your Signature Style and become the GO TO Photographer in your market?
Built a 7-Figure Family Portraiture Business

I would recommend Katrina as a Photography coach 100%. At the beginning I was trying to do everything and anything and I remember Katrina teaching me to niche my business. I took it all onboard and thought hard about where I wanted to be. I am way more focused on the areas I love instead of saying yes to everything. Before I worked with Katrina I didn’t know what I wanted to do and she helped me focus my abilities in one area. I found an area I love and I realised it could support my family and myself. Katrina taught me about knowing my own worth and helped me massively on how my business is perceived.
My business has improved financially as well as emotionally. Since working with Katrina I have had a 275% increase in revenue in my business and I know this is just the start. It’s been just me in my business but my partner literally just handed in her notice and we are finally going all in. There is so much value. Katrina makes me feel like a ray of sunshine. She makes me feel so confident and believes that I’m able to do what I want to do.

I hired Katrina as a mentor when I started my own boudoir photography business, and her advice was invaluable, and I doubled my income the following financial year. She taught me that it is possible to do well financially without compromising family time.
She also taught me the importance of specialising, rather than being a jack-of-all-trades. I think everyone needs Katrina by their side to set them straight, she naturally ‘thinks big’ and so pushed me to bigger and better things!
