NOT WHERE YOU WANT TO BE
You’re ready for change. You know exactly where you want to be, and you have a burning desire to experience that next level up, but you’re finding it hard to get there on your own, or at the speed you’d like, and want the help of someone who has already done it to show you how.
That’s where I come in. I founded the Tigz Rice brand in 2009, during the peak of a global recession and have since built an international reputation as one of the world’s leading empowering portrait photographers, attracting my ideal clients from all over the world.
let me show you
HOW TO LEVEL UP
I’ve established long-term ambassador relationships with brands such as Adobe, EIZO and The Flash Centre. I’ve published over 100 articles, tutorials & training videos for photography-related websites, podcasts, blogs and magazines. I’ve had the pleasure of travelling for my job, including Paris, Barcelona, Gothenburg & Reykjavik. I also published an award-winning book.
I’ve walked the same path you’re on right now, building my portfolio, getting more visible, raising my prices, learning to work smarter, not harder and discovering a work-life balance that suits me.
I want that for you too.

I just wanted to drop an email and thank you for an absolutely lovely course on Monday / Tuesday. I learnt so much, it was absolutely amazing. Not only technical or business stuff, but just your enthusiasm was so inspiring as well! I cannot wait to take more photos.

20 MINUTE ZOOM SESSION
WITH TIGZ RICE
The Power Hour
The Power Hour is perfect if you are new to mentoring and want to get a feel of what it is like to have a session with me, need help with a specific aspect of their business, want a booster session after a Deep Dive, or simply feel that you would benefit from a semi-regular accountability check-in. You could use the session to delve into a couple of bigger topics that you need help with right now, or come prepared with a list of lightning-round questions. You could also ask for a website or portfolio review, a constructive image critique session from a recent shoot, or we could put you together a bespoke retouching class. The choice is yours!

The Deep Dive
During this 4 hour session, we’ll delve right into the heart of your brand, explore your core values and remind you of your ‘why’. We’ll audit your current situation, identifying what is working for you as well as what is no longer serving you, and create a step-by-step action plan with an accountability timeline for you to take away and implement over the coming months to support you in reaching your goals.

The Boudoir Shoot
Ever wanted to join me for one of my boudoir shoots? Let me recreate that experience for you. From sourcing a model and location to providing hair, make-up and styling for your session, you’ll be present from the moment the ‘client’ arrives until they leave after the session. During our four hours together, you’ll have the ability to ask me, my team and the model as many questions as you wish, as well as capture a range of photographs to use for your own portfolio.

Why should I invest?
My mum once said to me: “Life is far too short to make ALL the mistakes yourself, so let me share my experiences with you and save you some time.” The same advice applies to you now. Whatever your dream is – be it financial, family-driven, or legacy-based – time is the most valuable currency we have, and investing in a mentor can help you learn faster, level up quicker, and reap the benefits sooner.
What exactly is mentoring?
Running a business can sometimes feel like one of those fancy labyrinth hedge mazes you often find in stately homes, where you know your goal is to get to the centre, but there are so many ‘this way or that way’ decisions to make along the route and you can’t see over the top to work out if you’re still going in the right direction. You could spend all your time and energy exploring all of those options for yourself, stay overnight and try again the next day. OR, you could ask for directions from someone who’s already navigated their way successfully through the maze, reaching you goal significantly faster.
Investing in mentoring is the business equivalent of ‘asking for directions’, a period of dedicated time spent working ON your business, rather than IN your business, supported by someone that is a little further down your chosen career path than you currently are right now. That person might not know the entire route to your goal, but they’ve already explored the next 5-10 choices in direction you’re about to make, and can save you a lot of time and energy (and potentially even money) as you embark on this adventure.
What level do I need to be at?
Here’s the great thing about 1:1 mentoring sessions: they can be tailored directly to you and your unique needs. So, whether you…
Have decades of photography experience behind you and want to fill in a few knowledge gaps.
Are running a profitable business already and want to level up your brand, either financially and/or from a customer experience perspective, in a way that works for you.
Have found your style and now want some support to refine your techniques, improve your retouching and build time-saving presets/actions to improve continuity in your work.
Are thinking about adding boudoir, burlesque and/or empowerment portraits to your list of services.
Are thinking of making the leap from hobby to side hustle, or quitting that day job to pursue photography as a full-time career.
Are brand new to photography and want some guidance to get you on the right track
…1:1 mentoring sessions give you the perfect opportunity to fill the gaps in your knowledge by learning from someone who is already successfully doing your dream job.
What can I ask you?
As long as it is business-related, and not covered by an NDA, you’re welcome to ask me about anything you like. We can talk about photography tips, tricks and techniques that will help improve your photography. We can take a deep dive into the art of retouching and how Lightroom and Photoshop can be used to enhance your images. We can explore your ideal client and look at ways you can curate a luxury, empowering photography experience that attracts clients willing to pay what you’re worth and return to have their photograph taken by you on a regular basis. We can geek out over CRMs, tech stacks and websites, We can talk about money and money mindset. We can talk about self-confidence and self-worth. And yes, we can also cover all those burning questions you REALLY want answers to – the ones you haven’t been able to find answers to on Google and have felt too embarrassed to ask publicly in community groups.
Can you guarantee results?
In exactly the same as any other course, workshop, styled shoot day or event you may have attended in the past, showing up is one thing, but you need to actually go home and DO THE DAMN THING. I will make you a promise to be an open book during our mentoring sessions, giving you access to my skills, knowledge and experience gathered over more than a decade in the photography industry, but you are the one that needs to hold yourself accountable and adapt and implement the information into actionable steps for your own brand that leads you in the direction you want to go. So the question, really, should be “are you committed to showing up for yourself and putting in the work?”
We're a team, can you mentor us?
Of course! The pricing on this page is specifically for 1:1 clients, but I’m very open to working with teams of two, three or more. If you feel like your entire team would benefit from mentoring support, including software training, get in touch and we can curate a bespoke offering for you. I’m also happy to be a keynote speaker at your next event too!
Talk to me about accessibility
All online calls will take place via Zoom, allowing us to connect from anywhere in the world that has decent enough wifi! Content will be delivered in audio (English) and/or visual format. If you require an interpreter, you are very welcome to arrange for someone to attend your session/s with you. Please email me and let me know before the session, so I can do my best to accommodate your needs.
In-person sessions can either take place at one of my preferred Hertfordshire locations, which have been pre-checked for accessibility – or I can come to you (additional travel costs may apply). If you are differently abled and require additional support, would like to request a fully private meeting space, or would like more information about specific accessibility features at any particular venue please email me and let me know before the session, so I can do my best to accommodate your needs.
Ps. If you can think of any other ways I can make my mentoring services more accessible, I am very open to feedback!
Do you offer group mentoring?
Not currently, but keep an eye on this space because I have big dreams for 2023!
I'm not a photographer...
My 1:1 mentoring services are primarily aimed at supporting empowering portrait photographers as this is my niche, but can also be booked by those working in associated industries – such as modelling – that would love some support becoming more visible, honing their visual identity, working on their offerings, and general creative industry advice.
Additionally, if you resonate with the work I do around empowerment, body confidence, equality and diversity, are looking for generalised mentoring on the day-to-day running, building and marketing of a brand, or would benefit from some photography and/or retouching training, feel free to get in touch and we can arrange a complimentary call to see if we might be a good fit.
