Inspire, educate, encourage and support is my motto when it comes to mentoring.
I absolutely love working with other photographers on a one to one basis, and in small groups to encourage them to explore, develop and build their skills, knowledge and photographic style and confidence.
Over the last ten years, I have been mentored by three fantastic individuals. The value of mentoring is clear to me, and I love to offer it to other photographers. To have someone you can bounce ideas off, celebrate success with and ask questions when the results aren't as you expect is invaluable. By working with mentors I was encouraged to attain my aspirations, and believe in myself - these had a massive positive effect on the forward development of my photography. Because I have experienced this myself I believe I have a better understanding of the value of mentoring.
Mentoring sessions are completely flexible with regards to the content. You may be aiming at qualification, or you may simply be struggling to pick up your camera and be looking for a little support. Regardless of your level, experience or reasoning for mentoring, I guarantee a supportive, enjoyable and productive experience.
Individual mentor sessions
Before we start on our mentoring journey together I offer a no-obligation 'get to know each other' chat, so we can be sure that we both know your aspirations and direction that the mentor sessions will follow. During this time I will ask lots of questions to ensure I know all about you, but I encourage you to do the same to me! Together we will discuss your aspirations and desires from the mentoring process, no wish is too small or too big as long as you are willing to work for it.
The majority of my mentoring sessions take place via Skype or Zoom and can be scheduled during the day or in the evenings. Each session lasts around an hour. Before each session we will discuss briefly what you wish to achieve from the session, so that you gain the most from your mentoring experience.
