One-on-one mentorships are ideal for those who want flexibility and personal guidance with their photography. Whether you’re at the beginning of your photography career, changing directions, refining your style or in a photography rut, I am excited to share with you, guide you and help you in any way I can. Since no two individuals are the same, all mentorships are customized to meet your individual needs. And I promise that during our time together, you will have my undivided attention!

PROJECT / EXHIBITON SHOWCASE CRITIQUE (time varies) | $200
This is a pre-recorded critique, best suited for past students of my 'Fine Art & Project Development' workshop or students who I have previously mentored. A completed or almost completed project and artist statement are required. You will “submit” your project and artist statement online via space designated on your own website. I will critique the project and artist statement; however, it is important to remember that feedback and critique varies from reviewer to reviewer. Since there is no conversation, it is important to be sure that a pre-recorded critique is the right fit for you.
