MENTORING

When I started this business 10 years ago I wish there had been more resources. It took me a long time to get where I am at now because I was self-taught in everything, how to use my camera, lighting, marketing....everything. The photography industry can be intimidating, overwhelming, and easy to get lost in. I want to be the light that leads the way for you. I want you to take pictures and start your business with confidence. I want you to be able to say. I am a "real" photographer! I want to give you all the resources and knowledge to start and maintain a successful business. Workshops are awesome and I even host one, but they can be scary and overwhelming so let's start here. This is a chance to get some 1 on 1 advise and portfolio pictures that are custom to you. I even offer an adventure package! Contact to book.
