For Photographers - Mentoring & Workshops



I have always had the heart for empowering others. My services extend to people wanting to learn the basics about their DSLR’s all the way to learning manual settings, dramatic lighting, editing and more. If you are wanting to take your photography to the next level you need a mentor. As soon as I decided I wanted to take my photography more seriously, I hired a mentor that I still work with to this day.

Camera Basic Mentoring:

This package starts at $125 an hour and is great for someone wanting to learn the basics about their DSLR camera. You will learn the different camera modes as well as a customized learning experience to meet your specific needs. This is great for non-professional photographers or novices.

Break Through Mentoring:

This package is a two-hour mentorship for $275 where you will spend the first hour working on posing and advanced shooting modes such as Aperture priority and Manual mode shooting. You will also learn basic posing and body angles to flatter your subject model. This is an onsite shoot with a live subject. In the second hour you will take your images and learn culling and basic color correction. This is great for a novice or semi-professional who is working towards professional photography.

Advanced Mentoring:

This package is a two in a half hour mentorship for $350. In the first hour in a half you will shoot on location with models where you will learn advanced posing and imagery. You will also learn how to take advantage of natural light situations, on-camera flash as well as off-camera flash, giving you more versatility and options for your photography. The last hour will be spent on advanced editing, understanding actions and presets, as well as gallery presentation, marketing and social media. This is great for semi-professional and professional photographers looking to fine tune their photography style and business.

All mentorship packages are fully customizable to your specific needs

and include extensive Q&A.
