Coaching & Workshops

Photography is one of the most beautiful jobs in the world – but it’s also not the easiest. I’m here to help you to break through your own glass ceiling! No matter if it’s about developing your own style or working more professionally. Instead of blah-blah, there’s Italian espresso in my living room, plus real-world tips, tricks and new skills to teach you. In my coaching & workshops, we tackle your next big photography goals!
In my 1:1 coaching and workshops, you’re in charge of the program. These are not one-size-fits-all coaching packages, but are tailored to topics that suit your individual and business needs.
My in-person coaching sessions feel like an educational meets deep conversation afternoon spent with a good friend. I host you in my home in Berlin, with good Italian espresso and so many good tips, new skills, insights and progress as your heart, brain and notebook can take in!

“Dear Chiara, after having slept one night and having reflected on yesterday, I am still totally blown away by your wonderful work.
Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge, skills and visions as a documentary family photographer, in a cosy living room atmosphere with Italian espresso. It was really a successful relaxed workshop paired with an exchange at the same eye level.
Thank you very much for your open, humorous and authentic way – not a second was boring and I took a lot of know-how with me.
I really hope we will meet again soon!”

– Juliane, 1 day 1-1 Coaching
