BUSINESS AS AN ARTFORM: 6 MONTH MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
hi. my name is jesh de rox.
i was never taught how to photograph or make a living doing it, so i approached them both in a very unusual way. i am probably best known for creating what is now called Superfeel- an unprecedentedly simple and powerful way for photographers to connect with their clients to draw out real emotion in seconds.
what i haven't talked about as much is the business model that funded me as i researched and created Superfeel.
in only 3 years, i built a photography business that gained an international reputation and took me around the planet to create images that have been published in Vogue, Elle and the Huffington Post, making me a lot of money in the process (portrait sessions at $5k+ and weddings at $20k+).
the unique blend of practices and techniques i used to build this model are uncommon, but they’re very simple and repeatable by anyone with a determined mindset and a little bravery. and they apply to almost every creative business you can imagine.
over the last ten years, i’ve honed and perfected them. bits and pieces of what i learned have been used to help creatives i’ve consulted with around the world to make way more money than they thought they could and have way more fun doing it. i’ve never shared the entire system, until now.
+++ i’m giving a FREE ONLINE TALK about creative business this coming Wednesday, December 20 at 1:00 pm. at the end, i'll tell those interested what they need to do to apply to be a part of the mentoring program.

WORDS FROM GRADUATED PARTICIPANTS:
How do you explain the creative impulse that makes a flower bloom? That’s what Jesh does, but with people. I knew this mentorship would be amazing - what I didn’t know is that it would change our lives. Jesh is the master of showing you the gold at your feet. If you’re going to apply, make sure you’re ready to for your wildest dreams to come true. I mean it. - RN
I've been going over all I have learned from Jesh the past 6 months and how he has unlocked potential that was already there all along... Jesh facilitated that leap and it came so easy to me it's another part of me that I have found and am enjoying to continue to explore. My mind is fucking exploding with excitement and admiration for myself and the fact just one (special!) human can support and uplift someone in such a way. So fucking powerful. - JC
Some new friends came over today for lunch and the wife asked what I do. I was SO tempted to say "I'm a photographer" but I pushed through and used the new techniques I’ve learned through the course. Within 3 minutes she was literally tearing up because she was so moved by what I was saying!! Win!! Working with Jesh has already transformed my business and my way of thinking that will have an effect on the rest of my life. - DD
I am seeing much more clearly now. The visions taller, wider, higher, deeper, bigger. More bold. I am a better version of myself. The self that has always been there. It has been incredible to witness all of us being gracefully cracked open and pulled from our hiding places.
I’m finishing up the most inspiring year of Business As An Artform. The combination of my hard work and soul searching combined with his incredible ability to mentor and draw out goodness and creativity has been magical. To have someone like him in my life and on my team means everything. His encouragement day after day to keep becoming a better and newer version of myself really fueled me. My business has shifted and evolved using the best that both of us offered up. It’s beautiful and it’s me. I’m on track this year to double what I made last year. And I just introduced a new business idea that came from our work together. One of my favorite ideas yet. BAAA is an all around life booster. Worth every single penny. Thanks, my friend. You are fucking brilliant plus some. - JT
Working with Jesh has been truly eye opening. At first I was hesitant about the investment, and now I feel like it has been fantastic decision. I’ve taken many online courses and workshops and even a few in person ones but nothing sends you on a projectile to success more than working with someone who’s at the top of their game and has done it before. Jesh helped me greatly in my photography, business and has even changed the way that I think! Going into this mentorship I was in a place where I often had feelings of uncertainty. I would see people on social media working on amazing things, shooting in this amazing locations and it would make me think, gosh I wish I was doing that! Now I’m in a place where I know I’m up to some big and exciting things myself. I feel so enthusiastic about what I’m doing that I can see my excitement rub off on others. That’s one of the things about Jesh. He’s just so excited about life in general, it’s hard for his energy not to rub off on you! He will be real with you, push you out of your comfort zone, challenge you to dare greatly and you know he’s always got your back. Because of this mentorship, I am as excited as ever, not only about my business, but about my life! - WC
Whose heart was also bursting with SO MANY FEELS yesterday? I'm so blown away with the businesses everyone is assembling. Tender, raw, magical, radical, powerful ... important. Such important work. - KN
Imagine someone comes up to you and tells you that you CAN have the kind of business you dream of having and you WILL get there, if you are willing to do the work it takes. This is how being in this program has felt. For the first time in my life i have met someone who truly understand a creative’s relationship with business. Jesh is a warmhearted and joyful genius. Not only has he given me a deep understanding of the creative business process, but also changed the way i see myself, as a human and artist, to be able get the results i want to have, both in life and my business. - SJ
