Sometimes we simply get stuck or don’t have the skills or knowledge to accomplish what we are trying to do. It’s frustrating. We’ve all been there at one or 1,000 points in our journey. Being artists sometimes it’s difficult to find balance with work/life/career/art. I get it. After 20 years in this industry I’ve seen more people come and go than I’ve seen people stick around. I want to help you stick around. I want to help you achieve your goals. I want to put a smile back on your face, help you grow more confident, talk to you, learn your personal goals, and help you achieve them. I want to see your frustrations melt away and for you to walk away confident that you can achieve what you want to whether photography is a business or a hobby for you.
This is the only time of year that you can purchase a discounted one on one mentoring session. Our studio is so busy the rest of the year that I generally don’t have the time to do them. I love mentoring photographers, helping you succeed is something I’m very passionate about. A one on one mentoring session is completely customized to your needs and goals and based on what you want to learn and is good for photographers of any skill level.
A few of the things I can teach you:
Photographing (couples/seniors/weddings/children/families/commercial assignments)
Off Camera Lighting
Using on camera flash
Getting it right in camera
How to find natural light
Photographing people at night
Shooting in full sun
How to Book Weddings
How to Photograph Weddings
The business of photography
Running your business more efficiently
And so very much more!
