Today, Thursday 27th October 2022, is National Mentorship Day. When I saw this pop up in my social media planner, I knew it was a sign from the Universe to get my act together and FINALLY push the publish button on an offering I’ve been working towards for over a year now: Mentoring Sessions for Photographers.
For those of you that have known me for a long time, you’re probably thinking ‘Hey Tigz, surely you already offer this?!‘ But the truth is that throughout THIRTEEN incredible years in the photography industry; 80+ monthly written tutorials for Digital Arts; countless long-form articles in well-respected photography magazines; delivering bespoke Photoshop training up to Adobe Certified Expert level for several prestigious UK companies; recording dozens of video training sessions on retouching techniques for other photography training providers; a decade of live stage appearances across the UK and Europe, including SWPP and The Photography Show (or Focus On Imaging, as it was previously known) for brands including Adobe, EIZO, The Flash Centre, and Wacom; not to mention a publishing deal for my award-winning coffee table book STRIP/TEASE…
(takes a pause for a breath)
I’ve actually, believe it or not, never formally offered any of this under my own branding, on my own website.
I know. I know. It’s about time, right?
Over the last few months, the number of requests I’ve had for portfolio reviews, constructive feedback on styled shoot sessions, tech help, publishing advice and general business questions has skyrocketed. You asked, and I’ve listened. I’m excited to start showing up for myself in new ways, whilst empowering you to do the same for your brand too.
From ‘The Quick Question‘ to ‘The Boudoir Shoot‘, there’s something on offer for photographers of all levels and abilities. Power Hours and Deep Dives can also be booked by those working in associated industries – such as modelling – that would support becoming more visible, honing their visual identity, working on their offerings, and general 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.
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
My 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.
Interested? You can find all of the details and booking information on my new Photography Mentoring Sessions Page.
These mentoring sessions will also be complimented soon by a series of live online workshops for photographers, which I mention here for the sake of accountability but will provides updates on very soon! One step at a time, hey?
