Mentoring | For Photographers, Hobbyists & Parents

Looking to invest in yourself & your photography? I offer a few different types of photography education, from private one-on-one mentoring in both film & digital photography, to casual, group meet ups and even remote Skype sessions.
My mentoring is suited to all types of people at different levels in the their photography: parents, hobbyists & photographers.

Is it for me?

Educating yourself on photography, if this is a passion for you, is always a good idea. You always hear photographers stressing that they are always learning. Because it's true! There is always more ways to improve your own photography and if there are areas you are interested in pushing, that aboslutly mentoring is for you!

I work with such a broad range of individuals, from photographers looking to explore adding film in to their workflow, from new parents wanting to learn how to use their camera and capture great shots of their loved ones growing up.

Have a scroll down and see if any of the differentl types of mentoring are for you, be it private one-on-one to casual coffee mornings with others just like you looking to improve and enjoy a slice of cake at the same time!
