Photographer Mentor Program


Here’s a secret we’re gonna let you in on.  We don’t know it all.  Not even close.   We wouldn’t want to pretend otherwise – and besides, we know you’re too smart to buy it.

But – we’ve been doing this for a few years and we’ve learned some lessons along the way.  We’ve logged thousands of hours behind the camera and even more in the digital darkroom (and we’ve got the permanent indentations on our desk chairs to prove it).   We’ve honed our style and found our niche and we never stop working to be better.

In the past we have offered a handful of unofficial mentorships and learning days – and with every photographer we work with we learn as much as we teach.  It’s creative kismet of the very best kind.

This year,  as we prepare for some BIG shifts in the way we do business, we’ve decided to open up our schedule for a small creative mentor program.    We want to work with a handful of passionate, committed people who are looking to spark some creativity, polish their skills and up their game.

What we do:

Creative Mentoring: Finding the light, posing, shooting and post processing.  If it’s about taking the pictures and making them look right purty, we’re on it.

Web Presence:  wordpress, social media, facebook vs. twitter.  It can be a dizzying mess of confusion.  Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered.

Words:  Need to add some zing to your bio?  Struggling with a blah about page?  We get it – you’re a photographer, not a writer.  Luckily, we’re both, and we are happy to help.

Biz Tips: Email marketing?  Landing pages?  Automation?  Billing?  Print or digital?  Pricing?  You ask – we’ll answer.

What we don’t do:

Work with everyone: You are a total rock star.  Don’t give me that bashful face, you know its true.   But don’t worry – if you’re so seriously rocking that we think you don’t need us – we’ll at least try to take you out for drinks.

Clean your house:  Or take your kids to school.  Or mow your lawn.  Most everything else?  Fair game.
