For Photographers

mentorships for all levels
 
 

 

As one of my clients, Rachel Hollis, says, “You can’t compare someone else’s middle to your beginning.”

I didn’t get to where I am overnight. I didn’t wake up and know all the secrets. I didn’t decide on this career and then magically become successful. I had to invest- in my equipment, my education, my style, my growth, and most of all myself.

I took advantage of every opportunity before me and put in all the grunt work to grow and develop my passion: learning new tools, skills, and techniques along the way. I have stood where you have stood, dreaming of turning passion and talent into a successful, growing career, and I can say that there is one tool along the way that helps to fast track the process: mentorship.

Mentorships are fantastic because they offer a one-on-one environment for you to ask your unique questions and get the answers and help you need to succeed. Unlike workshops, we can move at the pace tailored to your  experience level and focus on what YOU want to learn. Together, we get to design a curriculum that fits both where you are currently in your photography career as well as where you want to go. I want to help you achieve the skills you need to help maKe your dreams come to life!
