You’ve probably noticed a shift happening in the photography industry lately.
‘Getting your name out there’ will never bring you any clients. And senior photographers face some very unique challenges that other photographers don’t.
To be successful and make money with senior photography in today’s senior market you need to surround yourself with highly profitable working senior photographers who are at the level of success where you want to be. Who understand the specific struggles that come with making money in senior photography.
The Seniors Ignite Membership Program is the missing piece that is going to connect everything together for your senior business.
Each month we will release a new Shooting Challenge to our Seniors Ignite Members. They will work together with other members and Seniors Ignite leaders to master and complete each challenge.
The Monthly Shooting Challenges will:
- Increase your shooting skills and help you create images that will stand out to your ideal senior market
- Push you to become a better and more creative senior photographer
- Give you ways to work with your senior models or new clients to create new marketing content each month and keep you front and center with your target market
You’ll also have the opportunity each and every month to submit images from that month’s challenge for the possibility of being selected for publication on the Seniors Ignite website.
Featured photographers who are published each month will receive exclusive Seniors Ignite website badges to showoff their status and expertise.
Every week Seniors Ignite Members will receive an exclusive email packed with specific tips to help you in your senior photography business. Throughout the year we’ll cover:
- Shooting and Lighting
- And much more…
Seniors Ignite Members also receive first access to Seniors Ignite Shootouts, special members-only pricing on all brand new education, as well as the opportunity to participate in Members-Only programs throughout the year that will get you more of the right clients for your business.
Each month leaders Jen Basford, Renee Bowen and Patrick McBride will be holding official ‘office hours’ with our Seniors Ignite Members to answer your questions and discuss real-life topics in your business.
Plus, we’ll also regularly take you behind-the-curtain with us live for an exclusive look into real working successful senior businesses (both home and retail studios).
The topic each month will vary so that you get access to all areas of our businesses to see how things operate behind the scenes.
With the Seniors Ignite Membership Program, you’ll get exclusive access to a private Facebook group with other Seniors Ignite Members to work together on your businesses, share ideas and get inspired.
Every Tuesday we’ll announce a weekly Image Share Theme to help encourage and inspire members creatively in their senior business, and also to spur ideas for senior sessions.
Each day, we will select images shared in this private group to feature on our Seniors Ignite social media. This helps increase your credibility and stand out with your target market.
Once a month we’ll also send you an actual senior session that was photographed by one of our Seniors Ignite Leaders for inspiration in your own business.
Seeing how others approach sessions, and what they present to their clients, is invaluable to growth.

Member Code of Conduct
RULES & legalese SUCK.
We don’t like rules and complicated processes. It makes our creative brains hurt, and it’s a buzzkill.
However, we also know how detrimental it can be to the success of any program when the environment becomes toxic from people who complain, who criticize, are mean, who steal, are untrustworthy, and are just all around jerks.
It saps the energy from everyone and stifles openness, trust, growth and creativity. We want what’s best for the safety of our members, now and in the future.
Which is why we have a zero-tolerance policy for this type of behavior.
If you display any of this type of behavior, you will be unceremoniously removed from the Seniors Ignite Membership Program, your membership canceled, and you will no longer be welcome to participate in the community.
Seniors Ignite strives to provide a positive and encouraging environment for our clients. Anyone that is disruptive or negatively influences this environment, or is a threat to other members, will have their membership revoked. This is at the sole discretion of Seniors Ignite.
The success of the Seniors Ignite Membership Program is closely related to our reputation, and it’s up to all of us to protect that reputation.
Examples of behaviors that are immediate cause for removal from Seniors Ignite:
- Bad-mouthing a photographer to others (in your own market, the photography industry, or anywhere else)
- Targeting a member’s clients
- Using Seniors Ignite strategies in your own workshops and presentations and passing it off as your own product (which is also a copyright violation, and comes with its own set of legal issues and financial penalties)
- Charging in any way for sharing the Seniors Ignite Membership information to others
- You need someone to blame for your dismal sales figures, and you go on the attack with bad behavior (complaining repeatedly, accusing other people, badmouthing on social media, and the list goes on)
INTEGRITY AND CONFIDENTIALITY
To protect the integrity and trust of all Seniors Ignite members and studios, we have a few things we need to make clear.
Our leaders and members share their time, expertise, and mentoring, and have made a financial commitment to making this work for their studios and others.
As a Seniors Ignite Member photographer you are agreeing to commit to complete confidentiality between and among all members of the group.
Anything said, shared, given, or received within the group is done with complete current and future guarantee of confidentiality.
By joining the Seniors Ignite Membership Program, you agree to everything contained in the Member Code of Conduct.
