We as entrepreneurs are often fighting our way forward, forging a path so foreign to our friends and family and we often question everything we do because it is foreign at times. The majority of us never went to college for photography, or for business, so rather than formal teaching settings we find ourselves navigating the sea of online forums, clinging to answers that strangers give halfheartedly. But sometimes, we need more than that. Over the last year I've grown increasingly passionate about helping other photographers find their voice and moving their business forward. I'm currently offering one-on-one mentor sessions. These are 2-hour long sessions designed to help you move forward with your business. We will talk via skype or in-person about branding and strategy, finding clients you love, website content + portfolio reviews, lighting, posing, pricing + building a profitable business, editing, workflow, and anything you want to ask. I have found it is best to focus on one-two topics during a mentor session so we can delve deeper into those topics vs. skimming the surface, so definitely think through what it is you need help with the most beforehand. If you're wanting to build onto what we talk about, a full day or multi-session option might be the best fit.
Please note all current mentor sessions available for purchase are skype or google hangout based. For in-person, shoot me an email to see when I'm available, or to create a custom option that can include a live shoot.
Current Mentor Session Openings: Jan, Feb, Early March.
Because I spend time preparing for each individual session based off the info you give me, I can only take a certain amount per month.
We will focus on 1-2 topics of your choosing, as tackling more than this leaves us simply skimming the surface of each topic. If you're needing help with multiple things, or want to delve even deeper, multi-sessions may be a better fit.
For those looking to have a little more intensive help. We will meet together three times so we can dig deep, talk about your progress and overall just cover more ground.
Because I spend time preparing for each individual session based off the info you give me, I only take a limited amount of in person sessions. These need to take place either in Yakima, WA or if you reach out, it's possible I could do Portland or Seattle as I'm frequently in both places.
A full day, in-person, one on one workshop completely tailored to your needs. I will walk you through discovering your why behind your work and how to separate yourself from the sea of photographer, along with bringing that why into your branding and shooting to create a compelling, value based brand for your clients which leads to working with clients you love and who are willing to pay your worth. We will also do a live shoot and I will go over how I work with couples, from getting to know them to ways I draw out real emotion and what light I look for. We can go over marketing strategies, seo, and anything else you're struggling with to increase your profits + lead to a more sustainable business.
