Photography Mentoring And Training
About The Personal Mentoring And Training Program
As a professional photographer, I’ve spent the last few years teaching in workshops and engaging in various mentoring programs and seminars. However, Ive come to the realisation that most of these events don't give me the structure I really want in order to be able to give the participants in-depth insights into visual perception and creating stunning images. Also, everyone is different and therefore have different learning needs. This is why I’ve created this personal mentorship/training program. They allow enough time to develop honest and sincere communication, which creates the foundation for a healthy creative environment. As a photographer, this knowledge will transform the way you think about capturing images, as well as give you a deeper understanding of the refined art of photography. Treat yourself to a one-on-one learning experience which allows me time to get to know the whole person versus just a photographer.
What You’ll Learn
This unique program is for those who are looking to advance their craft within six weeks. The program will start off with an extensive assessment of your needs and abilities. Following this, together we would design a comprehensive work-plan tailored to meet your goals. These may range from improving your portrait, fashion or wedding photography skills, to learning the intricate techniques of lighting, posing or photojournalism. It’s whatever you need all rolled into a professional level photography package. We’ll work together to help you develop your own style, improve your photography skills, and create an ongoing self-assessment program.
Two Mentorship Programs Are Available:
- Virtual Mentorship
- Advanced mentorship
You are fit for this program if you have a work schedule that doesn’t permit you time for traditional classes/meetings; or if you are a distant learner. Here, I will reveal some of the most effective photography solutions for various genres, as well as give you a better understanding of the processes involved in a variety of both client and product shoot. I will basically present my brain and years of experience for you to pick. Think online course, only more tailored to your specific needs and you get to have me as a friend.
