Styling Training for Wayfai

"Your styling skills are impeccable and your work ethic is bar none. Your styling and composition are exquisite. You continually show you have 20+ years in the field. All the projects you have been a part of has been successful and your innovation and thinking have been key"

"Bonnie is a styling powerhouse!  She brings an incredible amount of talent and knowledge."

"Stylists hold Bonnie in high regard and seek out her advice and expertise.  She both inspires others with her enthusiasm and is a strong communicator!”


Training for Stop & Shop Corporate Creative Team

Bonnie's workshop was great!  We crammed a lot into a one day workshop and looking back we probably should have made this a two day workshop so we could have had more hands on experience. Bonnie is incredibly knowledgable and brought her years of experience and knowledge to share. She was honest and upfront about how studios and vendors work and experiences she has had in the past. She provided great tips of the trade to help get our studio running more effectively.

Our Photographer & Creative Director were able to utilize Bonnie's studio knowledge and get recommendations on how to better set up our Studio for success. We all also really liked the hands on activity of how to use and style textiles and place settings!


Payment Plan Available.  Three (3) Payments of $195.00



Bonnie knows what it's like to build a Photo Styling career and her goal is to help you make your styling dream a reality.   Probably like you,  she lives and breathes style!  Bonnie’s Father was an Artist and her Mother had a love for Interior Design, so it was no wonder she would become a lover of all things style and become a Photo Stylist.

She stepped into my first photo studio as a model in the mid 80's, from there she started my own Licensed Modeling Agency in Massachusetts in the early 90's. In 1995, she transitioned that Agency into a Styling Agency and have been styling ever since working for national magazines, catalogs, commercials and brands. (Client List Below)

But, with all that fun and style, she’s learned over the years, sometimes the very hard way, (and shares those lessons) that it's important to really know and understand the Business of Style.

So, if you're feeling lost, overwhelmed, intimidated or don't even know where to start - she feels you :) Maybe you are an aspiring or new Photo Stylist wanting to learn the photo styling business, a Blogger interested in photo styling as a career or adding the expertise to your Blog/Business, or maybe you are a Stylist now, looking to perfect your business and styling skills?  We can help.  The Photo Styling Business of Styling Course and the Interior/Lifestyle Photo Styling Summit was created for you.
