From workflows to websites, from ACTUAL work/life balance to figuring out your cost of business, this isn't just another photography course where we tell you to "raise your prices" and be on your way. This is for you, our flyover state photographers. The one with the rainy days, harsh light and a market that might be a bit more stubborn than most. 

After a decade in the photography industry, we still weren't finding education that catered to the unique Midwest market. We're here to change that for you. 

Representation
is long overdue.

it all started with my camera.

about us

If you're anything like us, you grabbed a camera to solve that creative itch or gain a new fun hobby. Then you realized you could actually make an income doing what you love. 

But then? Then there was marketing. Trying to figure out your paychecks. Your workflow. Taxes. It became a business. But you don't feel like a business person. You feel like a creative. 

SO THERE WAS YOU, YOUR CAMERA, AND A DREAM...

And when you try to tackle a business problem? The advice and education aren't relevant to where you are and who your clients are. Mountain elopements and desert lighting litter the socials. Are you feeling left out? We were. 

YOU CAN HAVE YOUR CAKE AND EAT IT TOO. 

It's a familiar feeling as a business owner- feeling stagnant, stuck, or just confused as to where to head with your business. Social is littered with destination elopements and the latest trends. One day you want to travel the world and grow your business. The next day, you are wishing for more weekends off. 

Just a heads up - you CAN do it all.  You can love your market. You can travel. You don't have to work day in and day out. It takes time to craft a career that highlights YOUR version of success. But it's possible. We've done it.  It's time to bloom where you were planted. 

Ready to learn how?

With processes that have been refined over a decade, you'll leave with a flourishing business that matches the lifestyle you want. P.S. You'll be able to do all of the above while loving and succeeding in the market you're in. 

the resources, confidence,
and thriving business await

you're a midwest photographer who is craving success and market knowledge 

the perfect fit if...

you want to be a more confident business owner

you feel like you’ve been doing it all but still aren’t seeing the results
 

you're itching to move forward. you've worked hard to build this business. now it's time to refine it. 

Whew, where can I begin with talking about this course? How do you begin to describe one of the best investments you could make for your business? I came across this course because  This course is everything a photographer of any skill level needs. They cover every topic with depth, realness, and a little bit of humor too. They make the topics very easy to listen to, which I think is something I haven't found in other education courses. The day I started implementing the things I was learning in the course, my business caught sparks and blew up in the best ways. I was seeing consistent and solid inquiries, my booking percentage went up, and I was feeling so much more confident in my pricing after a significant price increase, thanks to the help of Morgan + Meg. I have seen more consistency in my business in all aspects, and I'm reaching goals that seemed unattainable for the longest time. I am even able to check off the goal that seemed the furthest away: moving to a new city and new market. 

Megan and Morgan are a dynamic duo with industry knowledge from years of experience, a spirit for sharing what they've learned, and a way of empowering all of their students to be the best they can be. I wouldn't be the photographer I am without the incredible ones that have paved the way. Midwest is Best is the BEST, and I mean the BEST, investment you can make as a photographer.

COMMUNITY IS KEY.

I highly recommend Midwest Is Best to everyone I know! I spent many years undervaluing my work, frustrated with not being able to find my personal brand, countless hours of research of how to better my business but always ended up in confusion & wasted so much money.

They covered EVERYTHING it takes to manage a business, whether you’re a photographer or not: how to start, how to gain experience, how to sound like a human & get the clients you want, how to even plan a productive day while still being able to spend time with family & friends, etc!

Midwest Is Best gave me the knowledge & the confidence to take my business to a whole ’nother level, helped me establish my business as a LLC, how to actually pay myself, & build better client relationships! It was worth every single penny & every single sweat & tears to get to where I’ve always wanted to be!”

"After taking the course & using everything i learned from them, the inquiries & payments came flooding in, even from outside of the state!"

Let's do this!

This is a big investment of your time, money, and business so ASK away. We've both invested in education before and have left feeling underwhelmed. We've also left feeling like we're on cloud 9 and can take on the world/our business. We want the latter for you. So ask the questions and make sure this is the most perfect fit possible. 

we know you have q's 

Will I have lifetime access to my classes?

Do I even have time for this? Is it self paced? 

I’m new to business. Is that okay? 

What if I have questions? Is there support?

Will this course teach me how to use my camera? 

Is this only for wedding photographers?

Heck yes, once you’re in you will be able to rewatch as many times as you’d like! Any future course updates are also included. 

This is a totally self paced course! Whether you watch it in one day Netflix style or wait until this winter- you do you. 

Absolutely! Our course is designed for photographers of all experience, skill levels, and niches. 

Yes! If you select the non-hybrid course option, we will have an active Facebook group available for questions, free live training, an 8 week weekly check in post course launch (with recordings provided), and to facilitate community for our students!

This program focuses on the business end, along with posing/favorite gear but not technical use of gear. If you need any great recommendations we’re happy to share them!

Absolutely not! While we both come from a wedding background and use examples from our experience this is for any kind photographer. 

Course is OPE'n!

This course sale is only open for one week. After that it will be bumped up to the OG price and the community will be removed. You want this now!
