Want to learn how to take better photos? Or how to run a successful photography business? I have been running a successful photography business for the past several years, booking 40-60+ weddings per year, every year, and turning away more than 50% of all enquiries due to being booked out. Creating a successful photography business, or simply taking photos that you and your family will love and cherish for years is something I would love to help you with.

One-On-One Mentoring or Group Sessions

I'd love to talk one-on-one with you, or come to your pre-arranged group sessions to share any of my knowledge that may help you on your creative journey. Whether you are an established professional photographer who wants some advice on creating a successful marketing campaign, or on climbing out of a mountainous editing pile. Or a complete beginner who just wants to get more out of their new camera, your mentoring session will be 100% tailored to you and your questions. During each session we will catch up in person or via Skype, by filling in the form bellow I will have a better idea of what you want to know. You bring the questions, and I'll give you whatever answers I have, no secrets held back. If you would like to use the session to take advantage of some hands on mentoring, you can bring a friend or two to model and get some real hands on advice. Have any questions about the sessions? Just ask. xx
