One to one mentoring
Let me help you grow your photography to the next level with my in person mentoring programme. Learn how to capture real emotion in your work and finesse your editing skills and workflow! This has been a dream of mine for years and this year I've finally decided to put my big girl pants on and go forth with it. I've trained with lots of incredible photographers across the globe such as Stormy Solis and Paulina Duczman, each mentoring session I've been to has helped me adapt and grow into my own unique fine art, storytelling style. Despite being in the industry for over 7 years, there is always something new to learn and ways to grow your skills and brand. Investing in your business this way is a great step whether you're new to the game or have been a photographer for years.
This years mentorship will be limited to just two sessions, whilst I dip my toes in the water and ensure I give my all to those who join me on this journey. What a magical one it's going to be! With that being said, the two mentoring sessions up for grabs will be able to take place between May through to September. Currently, these will be held on weekdays due to my client and family schedule. You don't have to be a professional to snap one of these up, however you will need basic camera knowledge and your own camera. As we'll be working with the golden hour light, I will have time to share what settings I shoot on but not time to explain these settings to you in depth.
what to expect
Starting with coffee/lunch and questions, I will be an open book and ready to share some valuable tips I’ve learnt throughout my own journey as a photographer. This could be anything from presets, location scouting, styling, branding, my usual camera settings and kit. The choice is absolutely yours and a questionnaire will be included to ensure I tailor your mentoring session around you and your knowledge.
In the evening, we’ll head off into the sunset at a gorgeous location for a fully styled session of your choice (motherhood, family, maternity) where you’ll see how I prompt my clients to bring out authentic emotion, how to create your own emotion with light and movement, along with plenty of opportunity to shoot by my side and capture some imagery for your own portfolio and social media content.
Our golden hour shoot will be followed up by a 1 hour zoom call to show you how I cull & edit from raw to final image, working on the images we take on the evening, as well as the opportunity to ask any final questions. This will be scheduled within 2 weeks of the mentoring session taking place. A personalised workbook will also be sent out to give you some “homework” and notes from what we’ve gone over in your mentoring session, this means you can look back for reference whenever you feel you may need it.
Cost and booking
Mentoring sessions will be £649, this includes all of the above! I'll also continue to support you should you need it over the next 12 months. A 50% deposit will be required to secure yourself a space, with the rest due 4 weeks before our scheduled date. Mentoring is only open to those outside of a 30 mile radius. Basic knowledge of cameras and your own camera is a must! Mentoring locations will be within Hampshire, so you will need to be willing to travel!
