Group mentor/development sessions

These group mentor/development sessions are run on designated dates throughout the year and each will be given an individual theme.
Group mentor sessions are scheduled to offer a supportive environment in which to explore certain subjects, which I set for the period of time we are working together. These sessions are aimed at anyone who likes to learn in a more social setting. You will still receive 1:1 feedback and be able to ask all your questions, however, not to such an extent as if you took individual mentoring sessions.

Groups are limited to 6 individuals. The first time we meet I will present to you the subject before a Q&A session. Then prior to the 2nd and 3rd sessions I will ask you to complete homework tasks which we will discuss and view the results from the second and third time we meet. These groups are completely closed and offer a safe and supportive learning experience.

Group mentor sessions are for a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 6 individuals

They run for 1.5- 2hrs in length

Run via Zoom and all recorded for playback for the course participants.

ICM intro, ICM and multiple exposures and the Cohesive projects courses are 3 sessions/3 dates - 80 euros total per person.

The ICM deep dive course is 6 sessions/ 6 dates  - 155 euros per person.

The new projects course is 5 group sessions + 2 one to one sessions - 250 euros per person

Dates and themes are detailed below - ALL-NEW DATES JUST ADDED

 

Intentional Camera Movement - Deep dive 6 subjects course - 6 sessions


Over 6 sessions I will guide you deep into 6 ICM subjects - Each week a new presentation with loads of material from real shoots to fully understand all the aspects and factors that influence ICM photography from 6 subjects - woodlands and trees, water, architecture and urban, animals, details and the last week will actually cover a number of smaller subject (so actually you get more than 6 subjects!) In addition to the presentation each session you will be asked to submit a homework assignment in response to each presentation. From this, you will gain timely and valuable individual feedback and an opportunity to discuss any challenges you found or questions that you have.

By the end of the course you will have a deeper understanding of a variation of ICM subjects - some you may wish to take further, others you may not. But having the support to experiment and gain immediate feedback is an invaluable way to learn and be supported if this interests you.

This course is 6 sessions run over a 3 month period. Most sessions are 2 weeks apart, but due to previous commitments, there is only 1 session in November. This allows adequate time for homework assignments to be completed and lots of time for experimentation and development of understanding.

Lots of real-life examples showing the process from the initial idea, through capture and then post-processing in photoshop.

Presentations, homework and 1:1 feedback.

Sun freckles in a furnaced forestSun freckles in a furnaced forest'See the Incredible' was created as a panel of images for my successful Master Craftsman qualification with The Guild of Photographers.

I took inspiration for these images from the area I live in. On my dog walks with time to look and think I began to start sketching ideas with my phone for the creation of ICM and double exposure images.

These images portray the sights, sounds and feelings around me in various locations. Trees play a pivotal role in these images as I find they are a unique contrast in an otherwise flat and open landscape here in the Netherlands. I love their forms when you add a little camera movement into the image.

New online course for 2022 - Personal project

This course is perfect for those interested in mentoring, but who enjoy the camaraderie of the group sessions I offer. Aimed at those wanting to take their photography a step further.

During this course, you will brainstorm and come up with a photographic concept or project that you would like to work on. This could be something you have been thinking about for a while, but unsure of how to get it started. It could be you have no ideas right now and feel something like this would give you a focus for your photography in 2022. It need not be ICM or multiple exposure.

The end result is completely driven by yourself – it maybe you want to create a photo book, or have images ready for an exhibition or qualification submission – anything goes as far as a personal goal. Through a combination of group and personal 1:1 sessions, you will set goals, create yourself identifiable milestones and be supported towards your end goal.

The group will work together over the timescale of 3 months. The course will start in mid-March and be complete by the end of June.

Group session dates: - 17th March, 21st April, 19th May, 9th June and 30th June

1:1 sessions - 1:1-1 - Between 24th March and 31st March and between 19th and 26th May

Group session 1 – How to identify a project for yourself. 17th March

1:1 session 1 – Formalising your project goals and setting milestones and discussing techniques and ways to ensure forward momentum. Between 31st March and 7th April. 

Group session 2 –  Introducing your project to the group and sharing of ideas with each other. 21st April.

Group session 3 – Discussions and sharing of experiences and work. 19th May.

1:1 session 2 – Tailored to your personal requirements for your project – this can be utilised at any point within the project time scales. So could be early on if you want help with technical aspects, or later if you need additional help with decision-making or bringing the body of work together. Between 19th May and 26th May 

Group session 4 – Creating artists statements. 9th June.

Group session 5 – Presenting the final project. 30th June.

In addition to these dedicated dates, the group will also be encouraged to support each other on their journeys via a private online group where questions can be asked and support can be given between sessions.

Loved, loved, loved being a part of this group and enjoyed the camaraderie, enthusiasm and energy of the sessions and participants.  I can’t wait to travel and come visit your neck of the woods! Thank you for sharing the beauty of your areas through ICM.Traci- ICM and multiple exposures group mentoring course.


I really enjoyed this course! I don’t think I have attended a workshop before where everyone was so supportive of each other. Birgitta- ICM and multiple exposures group mentoring course


Thank you so much for the workshops. I learned so much from your input in the first session and was able to put a lot of it into practice. Thank you too to the group - each one of you have inspired me. Your images were so creative and your feedback to each other has given me new ideas to develop my photography. Look forward to seeing you again! Valerie - ICM and multiple exposures group mentoring course
