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.
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.
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. This allows adequate time for homework assignments to be completed and lots of time for experimentation and development of understanding.

Creating a cohesive body of work
Dates to be announced
20.00 - 21.30 Central European time (1hr earlier in UK)
Over 3 sessions, we will explore what makes a cohesive body of work and why you might want to create them. An ideal course for anyone wanting to understand how to make images work together in portfolios, creating photo books, presentations, applying for photographic qualifications or wanting to improve the presence and balance of web albums or social media posts. Presentations, homework and 1:1 feedback.
Personal project course
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 2023. 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-January and be complete by the end of April.
Group sessions x 5
1:1 sessions x 2
Group session 1 – How to identify a project for yourself.
1:1 session 1 – Formalising your project goals and setting milestones and discussing techniques and ways to ensure forward momentum.
Group session 2 – Introducing your project to the group and sharing of ideas with each other.
Group session 3 – Discussions and sharing of experiences and work.
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.
Group session 4 – Creating artists statements.
Group session 5 – Presenting the final project.
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.
I ran this course in 2022 for the 1st time with a group of 5 and the participants created some wonderful work - a couple of books, wall art and further ideas for ongoing projects. They all said that they had enjoyed the course and would definitely be utilising all the aspects going forward to develop future personal projects and ideas.

Just a couple of messages of feedback from course participants regarding how much value they gained from following the group mentoring courses.

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
