MENTORSHIP PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:
Entering a Mentorship Program is making a commitment to move forward, to expand your photographic knowledge and skills, and to further develop your personal expression as a photographer. A mentorship involves a sustained focus on refining your personal vision as a photographer, with sessions based on your individual needs and questions. Your goal may be to exhibit or publish your work, or simply to create a professional-level portfolio of personal images.
First, you will articulate your goals, discuss and fine-tune them. Once your goals have been established and a time frame agreed upon, a program will be designed to support the achievement of your goals.
Programs are structured to provide individual mentoring sessions approximately every 4 weeks. Although this time frame is flexible, programs must be completed in the time allotted (6 or 12 months). Sessions are usually conducted over the phone, with Skype or ‘online chat’ as alternate possibilities. Assignments will be given at the end of each session for completion within a timeframe which allows for images to be reviewed before the next session.
If a consultation session or a Mentorship Program is something you would like to pursue, I encourage you to contact me to discuss your interests.

Additional Time with Mentor
In addition to phone sessions, face-to-face meetings are possible, as well as shooting sessions. Since these meetings are likely to last well over the usual allotted time, they are considered outside the structured mentorship sessions and costs will be worked out on a case-by-case basis.
