Mentoring & Photography Training
1-on1 mentoring. Webinars. Bespoke photography workshops for businesses.
When I work with a business I tell their story visually, creating an image library to support key marketing messages but we know the content creation doesn’t just stop when I walk out the door after a professional photoshoot. As entrepreneurs and business owners you are constantly refreshing images and documenting the day-to-day to put your brand story out into the market. So I’m a realist who believes in helping you do that – I know growing businesses have demands on time and resources that mean a professional shoot every time just isn’t always practical…. so I help empower you to capture some of the journey better yourself.
So whether you’re not ready to invest in a professional shoot, or just want to up your business image game all-year round between shoots, I offer training and mentoring to help. From 1on1 online mentoring, to small group workshops or larger webinar/conference presentations I can help teach growing businesses what makes a good photo and some tips and tricks to get the most out of their day-to-day content opportunities.
