MENTOR SESSIONS

Are you struggling to become the photographer you've dreamt of being?

Are you burnt out from how much time it takes to edit, and still not being fully happy with the way your work looks?

I want to help you bust out of that slump and provide the spark you need to stand out in the photography industry!

Over the past 10 years as a photographer, I've learned through much trial and error, failures and success about what it takes to to strive in this industry. So many of those things that I know now, I wish I knew then!

Throughout those years, I've been featured both locally and nationally, on web and in print, and was just awarded Best Photographer in Lancaster, PA in 2017.

I truly believe that through community is where you will learn the most. I keep no secrets, and if anyone were to ask me a question about how I work, I won't beat around the bush. I will tell you how I make it happen.

I want to offer my knowledge to help others find that extra motivation, or workflow tip that can change the future of your photography business!

ONE - ON - ONE

Okay, let's get down to business.

Have you ever wanted to sit down with someone over Chick-Fil-A and talk about your business and goals?

Getting feedback from someone with 10 years of experience?

I want my one-on-ones to be a down to earth, easy-going, comfortable time for you to gain new knowledge to further yourself and your business.

This will be a one hour session where you can ask me literally anything.

I will hold no secrets.

  • how to be the first photographer to respond to an inquiry every time
  • how to design an album in less than 10 minutes
  • how to get a workflow that gets weddings out the door in less than a week
  • how to get featured by a magazine
  • how to get natural expressions from couples with much less posing.
  • how to find joy in the midst of all the competition
  • how to think outside the box and photograph more creatively

Or if you're just getting started as a photographer, we can talk about:

  • how to make the leap to full-time photographer
  • how to shoot in manual mode
  • what equipment to use
  • what programs to edit with
  • creating your own presets to get the look you want
