Welcome, fellow photographer!

 

When I first started the journey into learning photography and starting my business, I was so lost. At the time, it was hard to find anyone who was willing to answer any questions and I was left to using good old Google and practicing on my own until I felt confident enough to charge for my work. Things are different now, and I am so so happy that they are. Thanks to online communities such as The Rising Tide Society, Shoot & Share, and a few others, there is no longer an attitude that you shouldn't give away information for free.

We're all in this crazy industry together; let's try to make the best of it.

Running a photography business is tough. It can be lonely and soul crushing at times because as artist, we can get incredibly attached to our work. Eventually, we develop a thicker skin and we're able to take criticism with a grain of salt. But, then there are days when you feel like you're on top of the world and you get an amazing rush whenever you're shooting what you love. That's what makes this journey worth it!

Whether you're new to the industry or you've been one of us crazy people for awhile, I'm glad you're here and I hope that this section of my site is helpful to you.

Mentoring

Sometimes it helps just to be able to speak and learn from someone who has gone through some of the same things that you're working on, so I'm pleased to offer mentoring sessions to my fellow photographers who feel like they just need a friend in their corner. Here are just a few things than we can chat about, but please, if there is anything you wish to learn that I may be able to help you with, feel free to reach out! 

How it works

Once you know you'd like to work with me, I send you a quick questionnaire to get all of your info and we schedule a time to either meet in person or chat on Skype. We'll spend an hour chatting about whatever you wish and I'll answer your questions and provide advice that you'll be able to use going forward. During our chat, I'll be taking notes and you'll receive a PDF file from me the next business day that goes over everything that we talked about so that you have it for reference later. 

Topics:

shooting • marketing • social media • branding • web design 

posing + directing • post processing • workflow

+ many more!
