You’ve either just started your photography journey or you’re a few years in and are feeling ready for more. You’re excited for what’s next in your business and can’t wait to tap into the higher-level market!
It’s possible you’re longing to create consistency in your shooting and editing style despite the changes in light, less than ideal locations, harsh sun, too many greens, color casts, and so many more elements. These obstacles may be leaving you feeling stuck and frustrated!
It’s time to feel more confident about your posing, your pricing, and your post-production so you can create the experience and images you’re proud of for your clients.
This Lower Garden District home will be the best, most intimate gathering spot to share posing and pricing advice and portfolio reviews before diving into the LIVE shooting portion of the workshop! We have decided to limit the workshop to eight passionate and excited females so we can create an atmosphere of learning and openness!
And because I’ve received so much interest in my film photography, we will be integrating film into the instructional portions of the day as well! I’m not sure if you’ve attended a workshop and left feeling like the images were more about the photographer hosting than the attendees? Well, this workshop will be 100 percent about YOU!
When you leave, you will leave feeling inspired, confident, and able to create more consistent imagery. It’s time to stop doing the same things over and over that aren’t producing the results you want! Allow me to guide you into creating systems that leave your clients walking away with impeccable experiences and lovely images!

* Please see below details below should you decide to purchase a spot with your own room.
The workshop includes the opportunity to both learn from me as well as connect with other photographers struggling with similar issues in their photography business! I realize that it's an investment. But investing in your education will be sure to propel you to the next level and resolve those struggles you've been having with your shooting and your business!
The primary focus of the workshop will be pricing (determining your base price and instructions for setting up your pricing menu), posing (instructing a couple in a variety of locations and lighting conditions), editing (creating consistency amongst your images and edits) and portfolio review!
All attendees will have ample opportunities for questions and business conversations!
The workshop will take place in my personal home as well as on location at a nearby venue for the shooting portion of the workshop. Attendees will be staying on the other half of our double shotgun home also known as “The NOLA House,” our AirBnb PLUS rental.
You will be sleeping in our newly renovated four bedroom AirBnb PLUS home. All attendees will be female as you will be sharing a room with another person. Should you decide you would prefer an individual room, the cost to upgrade is $750.
If you participate in The Catherine Guidry Workshop, you will be able to keep in touch with everyone after the workshop in a private Facebook group. In this Facebook group, I will also be hosting a LIVE gathering one month after as a follow-up!
I'm ready to sign up!
During our mentoring session we tackled so much. We went over so much in regards to my photography skill set and business model... Since working with her as my mentor, I made so many changes to my pricing model and to my client interactions. I now have a strong and consistent workflow and am charging for the value I provide for my clients. I have learned so much from her and will forever be grateful for her help!
- Lindsey Rogers
I especially appreciated Catherine's direct, open and honest approach!
In one afternoon with Catherine, I learned so many valuable lessons both about my business and life. I think the reason I got so much out of our session was because of how easy and open she was when it came to any of my questions. Since the mentorship I feel like my whole business is in a much better state and I know it all stemmed from the afternoon spent learning from Catherine! Being mentored by Catherine was the greatest thing I have done for my business!
- Malise Gardiner
I learned tips on posing, marketing my work, and how to be more
confident in myself.
Her company and business is built on tenacity and integrity that makes her the perfect person for you to work with, learn from or spend time with. You know that she is going to get the job done and have your back all along the way!
- Sarah Love, Former Photo Editor at The Knot
You know that she is GOING TO have your back all along the way!
When I first met Cat, we immediately connected because we were both passionate about business and life. I was looking for advice on overcoming my struggles in business and direction on how to grow. Cat helped me learn from past mistakes... If you are looking for a mentor/business coach, or you are struggling getting more clients, I highly recommend you reach out to Catherine. My business has grown tremendously this past year and I'm excited about what the future holds.
- Ben Tone
Cat really helped me set goals and improve my client experience!
Choosing to be a part of Catherine's mentoring program was the best educational resource! As soon as we sat down I felt like I was hanging out with an old friend. The biggest things she helped me with were confidence, direction and posing, and the motivation to re-vamp my brand identity. Since participating in her mentorship I have made big changes to my session flow, editing style, and I'm currently working on my new website!
- Megan Crawford
She is very kind, helpful and experienced...truly a gem in this market!
The number one thing that I took away from her was the power of communicating with clients (even addressing them by name!) We talked a ton about composition, gear, shooting and how she runs the business! I especially loved observing her interact with clients... I created a list of questions before the mentoring session and we covered so much!! Catherine's willingness to help others is very contagious and it was honestly refreshing to know that there are people out there willing to share their knowledge to help others grow.
- Ashley Serpas
I was able to gain confidence and experience behind the camera as a result of her guidance!
Not only is she personal and relatable, she is open with all of her business secrets and willing to share with others for their own growth and success. In just our first session, we came up with actionable steps and a plan for growth in moving forward. Catherine encouraged me to reach a realistic timeline and held me accountable - which was something I really needed. I have made huge changes in a short amount of time and seen growth as a result.
- Cairre Wiley
She truly invested in me, supported my vision, and cheered me on every
step of the way.
I was able to let my guard down and let her truly see all of my weaknesses without feeling like she was totally judging me! It was a great day!!! :) My brain was a little sore by the end of it all: I haven’t had that much info fed to me in a while. I am grateful for the time with her; sometimes we all just need a little (or a big) push. I am so thankful for my mentoring session with Catherine!
- Chelsie Hebert
i am grateful for the encouraging words!
