My name is Jai Long and I am a photographer, educator and creative entrepreneur. I currently run three successful businesses and take pride in the fact that I can create an income by doing what I love while offering employment opportunities to those around me.
I love photography and I love the freedom a Business can bring. I remember when i thought it would be impossible to do what i love, make six-figures with a camera, but here we are!
I now have built several six-figure businesses and have helped 100's of wedding photographers do the same. I think there is nothing more rewarding than seeing someone go through a transformation and step into their new selves.
My wedding photography business, Free The Bird was started with a dream in 2013. Since then I was named in the '30 Rising Stars' award by Rangefinder Magazine, 'Runner Up Australian Wedding Photographer of the Year' by Capture Magazine, Presented at the biggest photography conferences included Way Up North in Europe, WRKSHP in New York and Field Trip in Los Angeles and have taught at LIVE events all over the world.
Seriously.... I have grew up in government housing, didn't finish school, I have been homeless twice and I was still able to create a successful career. What is holding you back?! Let's get to know each other!
