This private 1:1 mentoring program will occur in my brand-new home studio in Lloydminster, Alberta. The course runs from 8am-5pm on a mutually agreed upon date. Lunch and snacks are included throughout the day.
I want to make your learning experience the most beneficial for you, so you can elevate your skills and abilities as a newborn photographer. We can cover styling, set-up, posing, lighting, wrapping, camera settings, safety, workflow, editing... just to name a few! We will discuss in advance what you are looking to learn from this experience, and I will customize the day towards these goals.
It isn’t just about seeing how the job is done but trying it yourself and practicing it, with a pro to guide you along the way.
I will bring in 2 newborn models for your mentoring session. With the first model I will demonstrate my beanbag workflow and with the second model, you will take the lead as I assist and advise. The images you capture during your mentoring session can be used for your portfolio. We can cover a lifestyle family portion as well as posed beanbag workflow. Unlike a workshop, mentoring is a customized experience tailored just for you. We will discuss your goals in advance to allow for this.
