“Hasn’t stopped
talking since ‘89.”

My mom said it best and now I can tell her that all that talking has served me well.

I’ve been yammering for decades, but now people ask me to! What a delight!

I love to teach photographers how to make their words work as well as their product or service. How to sound like themselves on their websites. And most importantly, how to figure out who they are in the first place.

When it comes to planning an event, there’s a lot you could offer

You could do a styled shoot, a live editing workshop in Lightroom, or a look at overall marketing strategies.

But let me tell you something that most people overlook: the words a photographer needs to write to build their business. Often times, they rely solely on their images to sell their stuff. Instagram feeds and websites are just one big gallery. But the photos simply reel potential clients in. It’s the words that will ultimately sell them.

What if your attendees walked away from your event feeling empowered?

What if there was a speaker who could help them identify:

  • Their favorite kinds of clients
  • What makes them different from the photographer down the street
  • How to communicate all of that on their websites

Hi, that speaker is me.

See below for the official bio.

(Spoiler: my name’s Rachel and I can do all that and make everyone laugh along the way.)

With a decade of copywriting experience, a degree in photojournalism, and as much confidence a lady can muster, Rachel Greiman is one helluva teacher.

She uses stories and humor to break down complicated copywriting concepts, making the craft accessible to anyone who wants to learn. And honestly? Even to those who don’t.

She’s passionate about helping photographers stay true to who they are in their messaging and copy, and use it all to attract their favorite clients.

She founded Green Chair Stories, a copywriting collective, in 2014. Since then, the company has written for almost 300 photographers. Rachel has grown her team and her expertise along the way.

Writing for the nichiest of niches, she’s often asked how the company keeps things fresh. Her answer: There’s no such thing as a bad story, only bad ways to tell it.

Green Chair Stories is now much bigger than Rachel, but the heart behind it remains the same: helping people see that they are enough, exactly as they are. Everything she talks about will come back around to that point and encourage others to believe it about themselves.

Her main keynotes fall under the following topics:

  • Why you need to stop fabricating an ideal client.
  • How to feel as confident in your words as you do your photos.
  • Pain points are for supplement sales. Joy points are for creative sales.
  • Using copy to create a client experience that gets you referred over and over.

Me again.

that third person stuff is for the birds.

Thank you so much for your interest in having me speak. It is one of my favorite things to do and I truly hope it works out that we get to be on stage together. Fill out this form and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can!
