What types of Photography Mentoring are available?

 Getting your images right in camera - this is the basis for any good image.  We can cover Exposure, Metering, Focussing, Histograms, Composition and the equipement that you might need plus lots more 

 Using Lightroom & Photoshop to edit your images - how to make your images stand out from the crowd and improve your workflow.  We will look at importing images and the subsequent editing of your photographs to give them that 'wow' factor.  The types of things that I tend to cover range from the use of Curves, Actions, Layers, Masks, Levels plus retouching of images.  Depending on your level of ability, more options are available.

 Review of Portfolio - We work together to review your current portfolio (online and in marketing materials) and help you curate your images to achieve a more cohesive feel to your brand. 

 Shoot together - I can come along to one of your sessions and help guide you through.  We can look at ways to take more creative shots that express your own personality and represent your style whilst ensuring clients enjoy the experience. 

 Personal projects - It's important to keep the creativity flowing.  I am very happy to offer guidance if you are about to commence a personal project and want to ensure that you have thought things through.  For example, I have helped clients prepare for exhibitions, personal shooting projects (e.g 365 photo projects where you shoot one image a day for a year), commercial projects such as shooting images for a biography of someone's life and also street photography projects

 Setting up your business - I can help give you advice on starting out - the things that are key to getting it right from the start.  The equipement you will need, using social media, webside guidance, discuss the areas of photography to specialise in, look at the different types of insurance you will need, plan record keeping for your accountant and setting up a bank account. 

 Growing your business - Using social media to expand your business, effective marketing, the importance of blogging, SEO guidance and practical pricing advice to ensure you are making a profit.
