MENTORING FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS

HELPING YOU BECOME A BETTER VERSION OF YOU

LET'S GET STARTED

LET’S GET REAL

WHY YOU’RE HERE

  • You want to improve but you don’t know where to start
  • You want help on the business end of things
  • You want to up your post-process game
  • You know OCF is your weak spot and you want one-on-one help to master the light
  • You’re bored and uninspired
  • You want a refresher on how to shoot couples or families

Most importantly, you’re here because you’ve decided to make an investment in yourself and your business.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Whether you’re just starting out as a photographer or you’re a seasoned veteran, I feel confident I can help you learn and grow.

I’ve curated four mentoring packages that will best fit your needs. During our mentorship we’ll together chase the light, talk gear, address strengths and weaknesses, review your website, and set goals to give you direction in your business.

On the back end, we’ll dive deep into your website, your professional goals, social media, portfolio, goal-setting, and booking clients.

When we shoot together we’ll look for the light, work on composition, master posing and client interaction, and feel confident with your settings.

During post-process we’ll talk about cropping, editing, basic Lightroom and Photoshop, as well as gallery delivery.

I’m here to help take you to the next level & make YOU a better YOU.

MENTORING PACKAGES

01. FULL EXPERIENCE MENTORSHIP

 

This is an all-inclusive, in-depth mentoring experience. I only take one mentee per quarter, as it is a three month investment into your business.

Phase One: We will start with the basics: who YOU are as a photographer. We’ll dive into your branding, website, social media, and shooting style to identify your ideal clients and learn how to market toward them. You’ll be given a detailed questionnaire to fill out so that way we can work toward your specific needs.
TIME INVESTMENT: 2 HOURS

Phase Two: During our second month together we will focus on shooting exclusively. This phase includes a shoot together where we will photograph a portrait session side by side and I’ll talk through every aspect of it. During this time if you have questions about OCF, lighting, posing, or anything else related to photography, I’m happy to answer them. After shooting together, we will go back to your home office and I will help you cull and edit to your style.
TIME INVESTMENT: 4 HOURS

Phase Three: During our final phase, we will focus on anything else you need from me. Whether that’s a refresher of OCF, marketing, pricing, website, blogging – whatever it is, I’m there to sit by your side and help you figure it all out.
TIME INVESTMENT: 2 HOURS

$2800

**This package is only available in Hawaii OR Michigan as my schedule permits. Inter-island travel incurs a $300 fee. No fee for Maui students.

02. SHOOT WITH ME

 

This is a great package for photographers who want to see how I photograph couples. Topics covered are: looking for light, posing, locations, basic use of OCF for portraits, layering, client experience, and post-process 

How it works: 

You will have the opportunity to shadow me during an couples session. You’ll shoot side-by-side with me so you can see how I interact with clients and find the perfect light to photograph them in. 

You’ll have an opportunity to photograph the couple with direction from me. We’ll take our time and talk through every aspect of the photography process.

After our photo session, we will head back to your office (or coffee shop), cull through the images together, reflect on our session, and do some post-process magic!

All the images you take can be used for your website and portfolio.

In addition…

 a one hour session SKYPE session where I can check in with you to see how you’re doing!

TIME INVESTMENT: 4 HOURS 

$1600

**This package is only available in Hawaii OR Michigan as my schedule permits. Inter-island travel incurs a $300 fee. No fee for Maui students.

03. MASTERING OCF + MAGMOD

 

For those of you looking to understand the basics of OCF and use speedlights to help you light your subjects in an interesting manner.

What you’ll need:

  • At least one flash
  • A trigger system (Transmitter/receiver)
  • Basic Magmod gear is optional (though highly encouraged)

How it works: 

We’ll start with a one hour, in-depth review of off-camera flash. All the basics you’ll need to know and all the gear you should have. You’ll learn about your flash, your transmitting system, and different lighting scenarios where OCF will help you.

From there we will photograph a couple for two hours. We will go back and forth between balancing flash with natural light and creating light in dimly-lit areas.

Afterward, we will recap together and go over your images and talk through them.

TIME INVESTMENT: 3 HOURS

**This package qualifies for a buddy-up discount. Grab a friend and get the package for 10% off for you both! We’ll do a tandem session!

$1000

01. TALK STORY

 

This package is geared toward photographers who are just getting started OR those who are looking for portfolio review, website critique, gear questions, or just want to pick up my brain

How it works: 

We’ll meet at your favorite coffee shop or restaurant (let’s be real, grabbing a margarita or beer sounds better when talking shop) and you can ask me anything you want!

I’m an open book and happy to answer all of your questions. Use this time to let me help you with your business, shooting, gear questions, or anything you’ve been curious about.

TIME INVESTMENT: 1 HOUR

$350

**This package is available to anyone! If you’re not local, I’m happy to connect via Skype!

BOOKING PROCESS

Fill out the contact form, I’ll send a booking link, and we’ll get the process started! The deposit for each photographer mentoring package is 50% of the full price. The full amount is due 7 days before our session together.

MY HOPE FOR YOU

It is my aim to inspire, educate, and re-invigorate your passion for photography. The most important thing to me is that you walk away from our mentoring session with new knowledge to help your business and you will feel propelled forward in any new endeavor you decide to pursue.
