When I started this business I figured out quickly that workshops were tough for me. I am a bit a.d.d., and have a difficult time learning with a ton of people around. I do best one on one.
In the past 3 years I’ve gotten random emails asking about mentoring. When I had time, I met with a few photographers and realized just how much I LOVE to teach what I know! I love helping people, sharing information and helping people grow. The great thing about photography, is we are always learning! There is always room to improve, be technically better, and evolving in your style. Because of my schedule I haven’t had much time to do this. If you read my post on filling up my days, you’ll understand why! Sitting in church one day, I realized that this was something I felt led to do and make time for.
My goal for 2013, is to start offering one on one sessions and maybe very small group meet-ups. Recently I had an opportunity to get together with a small group, to talk about portraits, posing, shooting in manual, and how I started and run my business. I have to say I was so excited and it was so rewarding for me. We met out at my family’s house at folly beach, and my friend Ashley modeled for us!
If this is something you might be interested in, please let me know, and what specifically you’d like to learn. I’ve started a list of people who have asked about specific things and this will help me prepare for next year. Can’t wait to hear from you! 🙂
