“Working with John has been fantastic! It's been a few years now since I dreamed of one day having my own photography business, and John has made my dream become a reality! After week by week photography mentoring I was able to come up with a Business name, website, logo, possible printing places and potential selling points. Its been a pleasure working with John and I would highly recommend jumping at the opportunity as soon as it becomes available”
