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.
Choose your mentoring combination below
Portfolio Review – $100.00
~ Submit a 10-15 image portfolio for my review via google drive link or dropbox
~ An hour video chat to review and discuss your portfolio- email of each photo review will be covered during the chat
Open Discussion – $100.00
~ An hour video/phone conference to discuss pre-determined topics
~ Topics can include developing your style, shooting advice, starting your business in South Carolina (licensing, taxes, etc.)
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.
*Equipment required: DSLR camera with SD cards. A laptop is recommended but not necessary.
