To us the word ‘mentor’ suggests an ongoing role of advisor or guide and we want to be able to offer intensive 1to1 training which can either be used over a period of time to help you grow in confidence and knowledge or in a full or half day session.
The individual mentoring that we offer is specifically aimed at photographers who already have a business and are struggling with certain areas - for some the focus will be very much on improving technical and lighting skills and for others it might be much more about business development (pricing, positioning, marketing and business practice). Due to Brent's 25 years in IT we offer consulting around the important area of data backup and workflow solutions.
As it turns out most of the businesses that Kate mentored directly under her photography business went through a re-branding process. As a result we now work very closely with a brand designer who really gets it. We basically cover all aspects of running a photography business today.
Mentoring can be booked on an hourly basis or you can book longer periods at a reduced rate. Exactly how you use the time is up to you, some people prefer to learn face to face whilst others benefit more from frequent communication on email, skype or phone. You can ask any of the core team to help with your needs - covering all aspects of the Foundation Programme Module content, portfolio reviews etc. We can also spend a full or half day session with you - here or at your business location (travel costs will be additional).
Due to our weekends being committed to weddings/portrait shoots we schedule the mentoring sessions on weekdays.
