I started this venture as a hobbyist. Friends and family pushed me to ‘start charging’, and here we are, over a decade later.
Boy, does that sound easy! Let me tell you something, it’s wasn’t. Oof.
I failed a lot, I quit a few times, and the frustration was catastrophic and debilitating more than I’d like to admit.
I found other photographers over the years and often asked for their guidance, as I admired their work and looked up to them. I found many of those that I reached out to were uninterested or that offering guidance or help to a beginner or hobbyist was beneath them. If you’re reading this page, I’m sure you’ve experienced the same. This industry is SO HARD on the new guys.
However, those that did help guide and shape me were invaluable. I still use some of their teachings today as a professional and published photographer.
The focus over here is community over competition. I remember what it was like being self-taught and spending hours watching tutorials and reading how-to’s and still something was missing. A step was left out, my end product didn’t look like their end product, or the whole thing didn’t answer my question or give me what I needed at all.
If any of this sounds familiar, I’m glad you found me! I offer 1 on 1 real time mentorships on a variety of topics at affordable levels.
* Please note, for editing mentorships, I work exclusively in Photoshop.
