You are good with a camera.

People are noticing and are starting to hit you up to shoot.

You are even making some money!

But there’s a problem.

It’s inconsistent.

And it’s reactive.

You lack a framework for generating new clients.

You don’t really go on the offense, you just take what comes to you.

And sometimes what comes to you isn’t the most glamorous stuff.

Real estate, corporate business, headshots, etc.

It was fun when it was your first time making money using your camera.

But you know you are destined to work on cooler projects.

To use this skill set you’ve established to tell impactful stories that help businesses!

But how do you get there?

You are stuck.

And what’s even worse is that you see other creatives working with cooler brands than you.

And deep down you KNOW that you are more talented than them.

So why are they on those projects and you aren’t?

I’ll let you in on a dirty little secret of the creative industry.

It’s not the most talented people that book the most gigs. It’s the ones that are best at solving people’s problems and best at marketing themselves.

So while being talented is important, that alone will not get you booked.

The good news is, all the skills you need to get started landing more clients are learnable. And I’m going to lay out everything you need to know in this guide.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • how to think like a business owner and not an artist
  • how to generate opportunities for yourself via outreach
  • how to stay top of mind with people in your network
  • how to find the right people to reach out to
  • how to reach out to clients (with outreach examples)
  • how to talk about your services (positioning)
  • how to onboard clients once you’ve closed them
  • how to turn one-time clients into repeat customers


  • Call sheet, production budget, contract & scope of work templates
  • Questions to ask potential clients
  • A list of recommend books to further your education

Here’s the table of contents page, just so you get the FULL picture of what we will cover.

This info only becomes valuable when you start acting on it.

So if you purchase, you need to promise me, and more importantly, promise yourself that you will act on the things you learned.

But who tf am I? And what gives me the right to create a guide?

Fair question.

My name is Matt, but my friends call me Flickman.

I’m a freelance photographer / videographer based in Southern California.

I’ve been freelancing for 4 years.

I started with 0 clients and no money just like everybody else.

I’ve now worked with 60+ clients and hit 6-figures for the first time this year.

Some of my past clients include:

  • Monster Energy
  • Pura Vida
  • Lululemon
  • Brevite

Just to name a few.

You can check out my work here.

I also started the “Make Video Horizontal Again” movement, but that’s a story for another day.

My intention is to create a very helpful guide for freelancers still in the early stages. 

I was you 4 years ago. So I’m really making this for my younger self.

“But can’t I just find all this info online?”

Of course you can! That’s what I did, but it took me about 4 years to piece it all together.

What I’m offering isn’t a guide, it’s a shortcut. You have the opportunity to skip those 4 years of work.

I’ve organized all my experience and insights from my freelance journey, written them out & put them into this guide.

I’m going to make this guide free for a while to see if people get any value out of it.

After that I might make it $7 or just keep it free, I haven't decided yet.

So what next?

Here is what I want you to do to take advantage of this guide:

  1. Click the “Buy it now” button on this page
  2. Checkout (free)
  3. After you checkout, you will receive an email with a link to your download
  5. Read that shit
  6. Read it again
  7. Apply what you’ve learned
  8. Email me any thoughts you have on making it better or any questions that you have

Godspeed my friends!
