I am now able to offer a limited number of bespoke 1-2-1 mentoring sessions. Each session is designed around you an your needs and we can focus on anything you’d like, including: website and portfolio reviews, marketing and pricing strategies, working through your impostor syndrome, establishing a successful sales process, workflows and client communication, etc. 

Each 90 minute 1-2-1 mentoring session takes place online via a Zoom call (which will be recorded for you to refer back to). Book your session below and I’ll be in touch to arrange a convenient time.

Antonina helped me reframe my priorities and get myself organised.  I highly recommend working with her to help take the next step forward, to review your portfolio and help focus your business in the right direction



When I first started my business 10 years ago I had no idea what to charge so I could make an actual living out of my passion, and I made many (many!) mistakes and learned through experience. But you don’t have to. 

In this self-study course that you can go through at your own pace, I will take you step by step from determining your goals and vision of success (it’s different for everyone!) to quite literally taking you through all the math where we’ll get to how much you need to make per session to make your business sustainable long-term.

I feel like I’ve been able to go back to basics on an area of my business that I was running like a hobby and get a grasp on what I want to do and how I’m going to achieve that. I know what path I’m on now and feel confident that I CAN make the money I’d want to and need to from what I do.

After graduating with a law degree from one of the top law schools in Russia I’ve turned my life upside down and moved to the UK, where I studied arts management and worked in marketing before starting my own photography business.

I’ve been a professional photographer since 2009 and now enjoy working with many wonderful families from across the world.

Although my first passion will always be storytelling with my photography, I’m also a total marketing and business geek and I love helping other photographers figure the business side of things out. Seeing my students succeed and build their businesses on their own terms fills me with joy.
