One to One Mentoring Days

 

Last year I shot 61 weddings and more than 50 other portrait/ commercial jobs. This year I’m cutting back because I’ve realised that that was too many, for me anyway. I’ve been named as a Rising Star by Professional Photo Magazine and I’ve been featured on blogs like Love My Dress, Rock n Roll Bride, Festival Brides and many others.

I love to teach, before I took up photography as a career I worked in arts education running creative workshops for adults and children around Sheffield.

My One to One Mentoring Days are honest and open, I’ll tell you everything I’ve learnt, I’ll share the mistakes I’ve made and show you all my secrets! I want to help people to be successful. I love working as a photographer and I’m so glad I took this path and I want to be able to help instil the confidence in others to do the same. Each day is tailored to you and we’ll cover whatever you want to cover but as a guide here are some of the things that we can do/ work on:

Portfolio / website review

Brand review/ guidance

Shooting guidance, going manual and finding the light

Shoot with a model or wedding couple

Shooting self portraits

Finding inspiration/ getting motivated

Editing and retouching

Business advice / getting yourself out there / getting enquiries & bookings / SEO

Finding locations / models / collaborators

Getting your work published

You'll also get post workshop support and membership of my secret Facebook group with tonnes of advice inspiration and guidance

One to One Mentoring Days take place on weekdays at my shared studio in the centre of Sheffield, where you’ll get to meet other lovely creatives who all run their own successful businesses. You can ask me anything and I promise I’ll give you an honest answer. You’ll walk away from the day feeling inspired and refreshed and ready to kick some serious photography arse!
