About our Instructor Amanda Yount:

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting and Management. After graduating from college I worked as a Financial Auditor for a Fortune 500 company, and not too long after the birth of my son in 2010, I moved my focus from accounting to photography full-time. My photography business, Amanda Yount Photography, has been going strong for 11 years. Through the years, I have always been drawn to helping other photographers build their business with a foundation based on solid accounting principles.

As more and more new photographers flooded the market, so did the requests from fellow photographers asking for advice on how to price their photography. I wanted to find a way to show new and experienced photographers that their time is worth way MORE than what they were charging. With that, I created the Pricing That Clicks program, a common-sense approach system based on fundamental accounting principles

My Personal Business Story:


Amanda Yount

I have been a photographer for 11 years now. In the very beginning, my session fee was only $50 and I proofed online. Why? I thought that people would see me as a “value” and I could be in the drivers seat. I was in the driver’s seat all right – I drove myself very quickly into the burnout phase. I was over worked, under paid and although I did a great job on the session and my clients loved their images, there were times when customers would not purchase a single image/print. My site was used as view only and was shared with friends and family.  It was very frustrating.

I found it easy to attend workshops and seminars always learning ways to take better images, learn new, fun and exciting shooting methods and ways to improve as a photographer, but the pricing for my time and images remained a mystery.  I found that other photographers prices varied greatly for the same products that I was offering. How was I as a photographer to figure out how to price for my own photography business and make it profitable? Sitting fees and pricing continued to be a weak point and very frustrating for me.  After obtaining my Accounting degree in 2006, I sat down and reevaluated my entire business process.  I am now able to work less and have a very profitable business, charging what I am worth.  I believe you can do the same!
