MENTORSHIP, TUTORING, AND EDUCATION FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS AND EDITORS

Your photography is an art but it is also a craft, and there is no faster way to learn than guided hands-on practice of new skills. I had a number of mentors that critiqued my work and taught me techniques early on, and I am forever grateful for those opportunities. To help pass that on, I’m currently accepting a limited number of one-on-one mentorships per year, along with select tutoring and basic education under these topics.

  • Beginner to advanced camera operation, from exposure and lens settings to menu items (more advanced with Canon)

  • How to build the best gear kit specifically for your style (with both a minimal and a larger budget)

  • How to switch from amateur to professional photography

  • How to set up shoots with models and build a portfolio

  • Basic Lightroom editing (file management, crucial tools and workflow, basic slider editing)

  • Advanced Lightroom editing (preset management, advanced develop tools, camera profiles, etc)

  • Understanding color and light, and knowing how to use them with intention in editing

  • Basic Photoshop enhancement (manual): color toning, selective adjustment, basic blemish removal

  • Intermediate Photoshop enhancement: advanced blemish removal and editorial skin smoothing, portrait editing, landscape editing, advanced tool usage

  • How to create your own Lightroom presets

    Tutoring sessions are 60 minutes and range from $100 to $250 depending on experience level and number of hours booked. Let me know your hopes and experience below, and we’ll create a plan from scratch to get you where you want to be as soon as possible.

To show some samples of what Lightroom and Photoshop tutoring includes, below are some very basic before and after images. All of these images were edited almost entirely from scratch using easily accessible tools (mostly in Lightroom only), not from any ‘one click’ preset.
