After 7 years in the photography industry I have decided to delve into the world of mentorship. Having done numerous in-formal mentorships over the past years along with a myriad of photographic and lighting workshops, the need for quality one-on-one time has become evident.

In a world that is saturated with 'quick-fix' one-day workshops and classes, it's time we stop and think about what we want to achieve as photographers. It's not a skill that you can simply rush and expect to be fruitful. And that is why I have decided on steering away from the large pupil based workshops and have instead gone down the route of a longer term mentorship. Over the course we will go in-depth into what makes a good wedding photography brand, you will be exposed to my entire workflow from client acquisition to final product delivery. The software I use, the automated systems I have spent years setting up, all will be made available to you, including over 27 hours of recorded material. Not only that, but we will sit and spend time going over:

- Your brand identity

- Your photography study (Technical and Creative)

- Streamlining your editing workflow, including album design

- Your social media strategy

Along with the above, you will have the opportunity to shoot with me as I travel from weddings to fashion to commercial projects, being available to you weekly as we continue to build your photographic brand.
