Over the past year I have had plenty of photographers interested in learning from me via one on one mentor sessions and I have gladly accepted their offers. Teaching is something I have always loved I always enjoy working with fellow photographers to help them better their work and their business. Until now, I haven’t officially offered Mentor Sessions but have been blessed with fellow photographers who never let that stop them from getting in touch and setting one up! For the rest of you, I am now officially offering one on one Mentor Sessions and would love to hear from you!
First of all, awesome! I am so glad that you are looking into a session! Educating yourself comes in all different shapes and sizes but one thing is always true, if you want to take your work to the next level, you need intentionally and consistently push yourself forward. I learned A LOT from fellow photographers when I was starting out and I am a firm believer in building a strong community of fellow photographers who value progression and education. The beauty of these mentoring sessions is that they can be anything you want them to be. Every photographer out there has a completely unique set of strengths and weaknesses and your mentoring session can be tailored to fit your needs best.
Live in Antarctica? The middle of the Sahara Desert? A cave in Iceland? No problem! As long as you have the internet, you can book a session! In addition to in-person sessions, I also lead mentoring sessions over the web from anywhere in the world. In these sessions, we will use a service called WebEx that allows us to talk, and see and control each others screens. This means that you can watch my editing process while I explain the steps I take to get my images looking how I do and I can guide you through the process on your own images while giving you tips and pointers along the way!
Only you know the areas of your work that you want to see improve. Spend some time taking a serious look into every aspect of your work to find the areas that you want to invest in. Below are just a few of the possible session topics!
- Editing and retouching
- Client interaction
- Finding the best light
- Social media
- Developing a consistent style
- Website critique
- Portfolio reviews and critiques
Online sessions: $150/hour
In-person sessions: Get in touch for pricing!
