Mentoring:

I offer mentoring sessions for professional photographers and enthusiastic hobbyists alike. The curriculum is different, but there is no difference in the quality of instruction or attention paid to each student. Whether just starting out, growing your professional skills or learning how to take your personal passion to the next level I have something for you. See below for more session information:

You will have a choice of the session type: children or women, in vintage or modern style.
