HeadshotHeadshot Business and Home Studio Photography Mentoring

If you are brand new to the photography industry it can be an overwhelming process to begin your career.  You may have questions about  the process of starting your business, a specific genre or niche within home studio photography, exploring shoots creatively, working with other artists or building your portfolio.


Investing in a mentoring session might be just what you need to start off on the right foot in Charleston's highly saturated photography industry


*I do not offer event photography mentoring such as might be given for weddings or large group work and I will refer newborn photography to a more experienced artist for safety reasons.

60-90 minute Shoot Assist- $150.00

This may be added to the Portfolio Review or the Open Discussion and includes up to 90 minutes of an in-studio shoot assist to help solidify mentoring.  It can take place in your home studio space or mine with a single subject that you provide. Subject must be a minimum of 18 years old.  Models that I provide are paid and have their own rate and contract terms for which you will be responsible. Intimate feminine portraits can be explored, however Boudoir photography cannot be part of a shoot assist.

I would like to take this opportunity to encourage you to join the Professional Photographers of America. PPA is full of tools that will guide you far into your future as a professional in this industry.
