One of the most popular and highly requested options, I am excited to announce I do offer In person Mentorships on a VERY limited basis for 2017. Be sure to read all of the information below to make sure this is a good fit for you. Due to limited availability these are on a first come/first serve basis.
Are you a hands on, see it and learn it kind of photographer? Have you been looking for a way to break out of that shell and find new inspiration? I want to help and guide you. I want to hold your hand and be part of your journey. I provide a couple of options below to make it easier on you. First let’s answer a few quick questions…
What is in person mentoring?
We will meet at a location discussed ahead of time. This is a place we will sit, snack, drink coffee and just get to know one another in an informal and intimate setting. I am an open book. You can ask questions. We can chat it up while you learn just how I work, how I think. We will discuss how I approach a session, my thought process and how I prepare for my time together with my clients. How I make it a special experience and get them open up to capture the most intimate of moments. This experience is however about YOU so I want you to prepare questions and ask anything and all things you can dream up. We can discuss some of your current photography or business practices, look at images in your portfolio or go over anything you need to work on and are hoping to achieve the most growth in.
We then will have a LIVE shoot with models prearranged and we will shoot together. Yes! This is hands on. I want you to shoot. I want to help you with everything from composition, light, camera settings, client interaction and more. The sky is the limit. You can ask me anything! This is NOT a workshop. It is not meant to be rigid or structured so this is based around you.
Do you do One on One Mentoring?
Yes! Or you can bring a friend and save just a bit while increasing the fun factor! I have stopped offering 3:1 since I find that four hours can fly and I want to be sure I have all the time I need to dedicate to you.
Do you travel?
Not at the moment. I may open this option while hosting particular travel sessions but due to being a Mama of a large family and finding balance I can’t at the moment.
Are there distance limitations?
As long as you don’t currently live or plan on moving into the Larimer County, Colorado area you are absolutely fine.
When will you be booking these?
I open up in person mentoring in the fall/winter of each year and they are available on a first come first serve basis. The dates will close when we reach around five mentorship dates or the end of the summer. We will work on the date together after the retainer or mentorship is purchased. I am flexible! I will not be traveling in 2016 since our family is growing and I am taking that year to slow it down a bit and keep closer to home. These will take place however during June-August.
How long do we get to spend together?
There are two great options:
Half Day or FOUR hours: Perfect if you have lots of Questions (Can be business or Photography related) + Shooting
You can purchase an additional Hour and we can work on processing LIVE together. You will want to bring your laptop for this!
Sounds good and want more details??
1:1 (Just me and You)
Half Day (Four Hours): $895
Includes: Warm up time and questions before we get shooting. FOOD. Yes, we get to eat. We meet at an adorable coffee house in the heart of Fort Collins, CO before heading to our location. I mean what is better than eating AND chatting about photography? I promise I won’t talk with my mouth full. A pretty bound full color book with helpful tidbits on how I approach photography + run my business and balance my family.
Arranged FULL family session that you are welcome to use for your portfolio. A seat in my next online processing workshop (HUGE Value.) OR instead of taking the full run you can opt just to have the materials sent to you without taking the full course and having to be in attendance online. Just let me know upon booking.
Hour Processing Add-On: $150 (Per mentee)
Bring a friend!
2:1 Mentoring Half day option only $795 per person. (Double the fun and Save!)
Now here is some prerequisites.
I recommend you have a thorough knowledge of manual mode. Since the sessions can move quick sometimes and we are going to be busy, busy… a mastery or your camera settings will get you the most out of this mentorship. If you are just starting and looking for more basic camera knowledge or help that doesn’t run along the business lines we can dedicate time to that instead otherwise but make sure to specify up front so I can plan for you.
Unless otherwise arranged, you must come to the Fort Collins, CO area for these mentorships.
You must be prompt so we get every last drop of awesome out of our time together.
Non refundable. Half of the full investment due at time of booking and the remainder due 14 days before time together for the Half Day. There are no exceptions. You may however sell your spot if necessary.
How Do I sign up??
Easy!! Just shoot me a message with your choice of either June, July or August and Half Day or if you would like to add on the processing and I will send an invoice. Once the invoice is paid you are on the books and it is officially a date!
Please Note: Payment and retainer are rolled into one for your convenience. There is no distance restrictions on this Mentorship except you must not be in the Larimer County Colorado area. Mentorship times always start approx 4-5 hours before sunset. We meet and eat first (on me!) and then head to the location to meet the models. Models are provided and chosen for you. Location is in Fort Collins, CO unless other wise stated. A questionnaire will be sent roughly one-two weeks before our time together to get better acquainted. All Mentoring is non refundable. Dates are weather permitted, if there is poor weather or an act of God that prevents our original date from happening a follow up date will be provided.
