Yvonne's Bio

Yvonne van Dalen is a Photography Success Coach & Business strategist to independent photographers and Founder of the Photographers Coach Academy. It’s her mission to help photographers worldwide increase their income for a life with more freedom and flexibility.

On the Photographers Coach website and socials, Yvonne passionately and authentically shares her journey in life as a photographer and coach.  She wants to challenge everyone who knows her online (or in real life) to support each other, and thus inspire and elevate each other. Yvonne is the go-to person when it comes to marketing for photographers and creative business owners.

Given my exciting roles as a photographer, business mentor and mother of two, I aim to dedicate the time I have left for developing new educational material and writing my new book.

Accordingly, I’m a bit harder to reach than most authors. I don’t have a general purpose email address and I use social media purely for showcasing the work that I do.

(See Neal Stephenson’s essay, “Why I’m a Bad Correspondent”, for some more justifications regarding this minimalist approach.)

Below are the ways you can still reach me, along with some relevant instructions…

Interview/Media Requests

Requests for radio, print, and podcast interviews, as well quote requests or related media inquiries, can be directed to our Support Team using the following address:

Interesting Links

One of the things I love about blogging and writing is that my readers send me links to articles, books, interviews, etc., they think might interest me, given the topics I write about. This is where I find a lot of my best material. Please keep these coming to

Note: I really appreciate these pointers, but due to time constraints, I’m usually not able to respond.
