I am a firm believer that our real growth as artists comes as a collaborative process, and sometimes we only truly see our work when we do it through the eyes of another person. Maybe you need that other eye to look over your images. Maybe you need to be pushed out of your comfort zone or maybe you have a new skill you want to explore. This is where mentoring is the perfect choice. With mentoring, you can explore new ideas, practice a new skill or even develop a portfolio in an intimate one-on-one setting.
When we work together to create a mentoring relationship, your goals are our guideposts. I work both in person or via online video chat. Online sessions last one hour and can cover topics ranging from development of personal projects, to portfolio review, to the nuts and bolts of photography techniques. In-person sessions can be blocked out hourly or in three-hour segments. Plan a three-hour segment to learn a new camera, focus on a specific skill or even go on a photo walk with me where we can work together on light, composition or answering any questions you may have.
I see you
Built on nearly 20 years as a teacher, my philosophy for working with students is that it’s your journey, not mine. My goal is to meet you where you are on your path as a creative artist and help you along the way. We’ll work together to develop goals that are particular to your needs, and we’ll refine those goals as you grow as an artist. A mentoring relationship is meant to excite you, nurture you, but also challenge you. Ready to learn more? Reach out and let’s start a conversation.
