 Hi, I’m Vivien!

….the creative force not only behind the lens! I’m a photography business mentor and award winning photographer. Originally from Germany, I successfully manifested sunny Mykonos in Greece my home.

Before deciding to pursue my true calling as a photographer and business coach, I spent more than 15 years in the corporate world. But the desire of more fulfillment in life and to be my own boss led me to follow my heart and build my own photography business Vivien Renziehausen Photography from scratch. Twice actually… first in Germany where I managed to become the go-to-photographer in my niche and make more money in one shoot than I did in my corporate job in a month. And a second time when I moved to Greece where I did not know a soul and started all over again only to mark my first year there as one of the most successful in my career.

Building successful photography businesses, helping fellow photographers stand out and skyrocket their income is my other passion next to photography. I’ve been featured in NYC Journal, Amazing Architecture and more. While you might not see your hidden superpowers, I have a talent to find it, help you craft unique offers people cannot say no to and make your business thrive by getting you fully booked.

I never took my success for granted and consider all that I have achieved in photography and also my mentoring skills a great gift from God.

I strongly believe that there is more to life than just the conventional 9-to-5 grind, and I am passionate about helping others discover this truth and build a business that lets them live a fulfilled life on their own terms.

As seen in

I’ve seen it countless times: people having a hard time believing in themselves and their work and to step into their power.

Instead of feeling stuck, overwhelmed or lost when it comes to starting a business, attracting clients, get consistent income and to run a successful business I help you to feel in control with a clear path to follow along.

I’m here to remind you what’s possible for you because I have been where you are now and believe me, I know what I’m talking about, having built my own photoraphy business in two different countries from scratch.

My work combines the practical parts of building a business with the energetical parts because I learned from experience that we have to „keep our house clean“ in both areas if we want to be successful.

My courses make starting your own business easy and affordable. My personal guidance will catapult you onto the fast lane to success, ensuring that you avoid the same pitfalls I encountered along my journey.

So, are you ready to take the leap? Together, we will unlock the secrets of living your dream life by turning your passion into profit!

Personal mentoring

The secret to guaranteed success: personal mentoring.

Having someone who’s already been where you are now makes all the difference in building and leveling up your business. Someone to guide you, support you, motivate you and listen to you is the game-changer for every business owner.

In my personal mentorings I give you a roadmap tailored to your journey and  accelerating your progress.

It’s not just an option; it’s the essential catalyst for turning your passion into a thriving business.

Don’t settle for uncertainty—secure your success with personalized mentoring now!

In the span of one zoom call with Vivien, she was able to give me so much clarity and direction for my business. She was able to give me confidence and affirmation, and point out little things that weren’t working in my business while also giving me solid advice to be able to turn them around. I so appreciate the time she took to look over my website and social media before our call, and her ability to give me constructive criticism without making me feel inadequate. I got so much out of our one conversation; I can’t imagine what heights she would help push you to if you are lucky enough to do one of her one-on-one courses. I highly recommend talking to her if you feel stuck, or directionless, or even just need a little affirmation on your journey.

Vivien was super friendly and incredibly helpful to me, before our call she encouraged me and helped me dig deep with any questions I could think of before our meeting. Not only did she answer my several questions, she gave me amazing advice and really challenged me to a fresh perspective in areas where I have been struggling. The best part is that I never felt embarrassed or ashamed in where I’m struggling. She was so kind to me! Professional and ready to help was my experience. Would definitely recommend!
