Mentorship Program

INTRODUCTION

I’ve received several requests to create a Mentorship Program. Many photographers continue to feel frustrated with other professionals when attending field workshops with little or no teaching. Some even feel so overwhelmed by information that they don’t know how to apply it to their work.

This individualized Mentorship Program is designed for those who wish to learn, grow, and progress by learning from one source. No more he said, she said. This program is dedicated to bird and landscape photography only.

Working with a mentor allows you to expand your photographic knowledge and skills, and to refine your photographic style. A mentorship is often
goal-oriented; it can lead to expanding your field techniques and digital workflow, managing your equipment, and learning what it truly takes to create award-winning images.

program OPTIONS & DETAILS

The Photography Mentorship Program begins with a portfolio review. We'll discuss what you can improve and what direction you want to go. We'll agree on a tentative plan of action by telephone (preferred) or e-mail. This program requires discipline and commitment. Like you, I don't like to waste my time. This program is about how you can become a more successful photographer.

The program offers two options to address your individual needs. More details will be available when you register. All information is confidential and should not be shared with anyone.

ONE-YEAR MENTORSHIP PROGRAM OF 12 SESSIONS INCLUDES:

• One-on-one portfolio review.
• Plan of action.
• 60-minute phone consultations every four weeks. Topics covered range and arise from your individual needs and questions at the time (personal vision, technical questions, equipment, business and marketing strategies, exhibiting your images, etc.). All communications occur via phone or e-mail.
• Two field workshops of your choice (see my current workshop schedule). Make sure to choose wisely and register early.

COST: $3,900 ($325 per month)


6-MONTH MENTORSHIP OF SIX SESSIONS INCLUDES:

• One-on-one portfolio review.
• Plan of action.
• 60-minute phone consultations every four weeks. Topics covered range and arise from your individual needs and questions at the time (personal vision, technical questions, equipment, business and marketing strategies, exhibiting your images, etc.). All communications occur via phone or e-mail.
• One field workshops of your choice (see my current workshop schedule). Make sure to choose wisely and register early.

COST: $2,900 ($483 per month)

FACE-TO-FACE MEETINGS:

Although the mentorship program is primarily long-distance learning, face-to-face meetings are definitely possible if you are local. In addition, you have the opportunity to photograph with me outside my workshop schedule. Since these meetings are likely to last more than an hour, they are outside the structured mentorship sessions and costs need to be adjusted. If you feel the need for more fieldwork, an additional $250 is required per outing.

HOW TO REGISTER:

Before you can register, I would like to speak with you to ensure this program fits your needs. Not everyone will be accepted and I reserve the right to decline clients whose needs don’t fit this program.
