Photography Mentoring 

How many times have you wished your camera could see the image that was in your mind? It's so frustrating and disheartening to have a clear vision that just isn't making It's way from your eye to the camera's lens - and then the moment passes and you've lost it forever.

We know you’re not the only one that feels like this.

Owning any kind of camera can be a minefield. Almost like there’s some secret photography code that you just can’t find out. For a start it seems very technical and there’s also so many different ways to shoot and then there’s which subject and lighting and…. the list goes on. 

Our aim with our mentoring program is to make photography easier to understand and more accessible for any creatives. It may be that you would like to better document your family life, or that you would love to be able to take stronger images for your brand or business. Either way, we’re here to help. 

Here’s what we will share with you  

Confidence -  in your camera and it’s settings

Strength  - to find your own personal style

Clarity- to learn the elements that really make a difference to better photographs

Time -  to leave you free to create

Consideration - of everyone’s different ways of learning.

We're often asked what's most important in photography - know-how or feeling. Of course the technical side is important for giving you the tools, and the confidence, to get those shots you want - so in our mentoring we spend time geeking out over cameras and learning simple ways to use manual (yes it's possible!). But in order to use your technical knowledge, you have to start from a point of feeling - and this is what we do most of all.  


The other part I need to let you know is, you will NEVER STOP LEARNING. Which if you think about it, is kinda fun.

Now to the part where we guide you on your way to more confidence with your visions and make this something that YOU can do for YOURSELF. It sounds exciting doesn’t it? 

 

We offer a few different ways of learning with us.

1-1 Mentoring, ‘Lost in the light’ E course and E books.

Each one is tailored to your different ways of learning.

Take a look and see which one works best for you!

6 Week Online One to One Program

LOST IN THE LIGHT 1-1 MENTORING

(mentoring for bloggers, instagrammers, creative business owners, always wanted to be photographer's and parents ) 

 

This package is for 3 months photography mentoring. We will work through the three key areas of photography, bringing everything together to give you more confidence and vision to create the kind of images you dream of taking. 

It’s totally understandable that these days it’s not always possible to come along to a workshop or meet us in person for a 1-1. So for those of you who would prefer to learn with us from the comfort of your own home, this is perfect for you. 

Some of the Topics we cover - 

Shoot with feeling - making the change from automatic camera settings to manual and learn how to create images in your own personal style. We’ll work along with you to strengthen your creative vision and help you to understand your camera in a more simple way. 

Finding the light - Working with light for more powerful images. Learn how to make the most of any situation and all the fun things in between. Beautiful backlight, golden hour, limited light, contrasting and full sun. There are lots of ways to make light into something beautiful rather than it be a barrier to your creativity. 

Creating your editing style -  How to use an editing suit such as lightroom to find and create a colour and black and white preset that is personal to you. We can also show you ways of tweaking your images for different light situations and add a new feel to your images. 

This package can be worked on together in exactly the way you need it to. If you already feel confident with how your camera works, we can spend more time in the weeks on 'finding the light' and explore lots of new ways to use it to take away the fear of different light situations being a barrier to your best work. Likewise if editing is something you would LOVE to get better at, we have lots of ways to use editing programs to really find something that speaks to you. We will work along with you to plan the kind of mentoring that leaves you with the confidence to just get out there and SHOOT.  

 

THIS PACKAGE INCLUDES:

  • 6 x 45 minute calls (via Skype) over 3 months

  • Detailed notes after each session

  • supporting exercises to help further guide you in the right direction

  • Plenty of unlimited Email support as and when you need it.

  • 3 months £600 (payment plan of £200 a month)

Finding the light is our favourite part of photography, because with light, you can create ALL the magic. Even in the simplest way, once you have a more clear understanding of it. You don’t need a fancy camera necessarily, you can just use your eyes and a camera phone if you wish. What we want you to learn from this e book, is that light is not a barrier. The more you can learn to play with it, rather than than avoid certain types, the stronger you will feel about taking the kinds of photographs you always wanted to. Finding the light and seeing the light are one in the same thing. Light can have such subtleties at times, it can be hard to even notice it or know where it’s coming from. That’s where we can help you along… We have designed this book to make seeing the light and understanding how to use it more available to you. Here we will open up your possibilities of being able to create more emotive images with light, add strength and meaning to your work and most of all, enjoy seeing it everywhere.
