Are you a photographer?
I'd love to get to know you! I teach classes for people just starting out who want to learn their way around a camera, as well as for those who know the basics but want some one-on-one mentoring help to build their skills. I also co-founded and run a workshop for experienced family photographers that brings the best and the brightest in the industry together each year in New Orleans.
Private mentoring is essentially a personalized workshop tailored to your schedule, your specific areas of concern, and your level of ability. We work together ahead of our meetings to create an agenda, then plan our time together to give you the maximum benefit - I can instruct, demonstrate, or answer questions, and will be an open book about my successes, mistakes, and shortcuts.
I have mentored everyone from amateurs just looking to figure their cameras out before having a baby or a big trip to established photographers who want help with anything from portfolio reviews to studio lighting to business strategies. I am available to meet in person or virtually.
What's the point in owning a great camera if you don't know how to use it? Digital photography isn't rocket science, but it can be really hard to figure out on your own. I designed the 10x10 Digital Photography Challenge to break down what can be a very dry, technical subject into ten fun and straightforward mini-lessons that can be completed in around 10 minutes a day.
Each video is full of step-by-step instructions, shortcuts, and example photos that will help you understand not only how a concept works, but why it's important, and how it's going to be useful in your life.
Whether you want to take better photos of your kids, your travels, or anything else, the 10x10 challenge will have you up, running, and making full use of the great camera you invested in!
In 2016, I co-founded The Family Narrative, which is a four day retreat for family photographers held in New Orleans each spring.
If you photograph families professionally, you will find no better resource for great information, inspiration, and camaraderie. Our goal in creating this retreat was to offer established photographers a place to learn new techniques and skills, commune with their peers, push through burnout, and leave feeling inspired and invigorated.
