1:1 & 1:2 MENTORING


This mentoring session is completely tailored to your specific interests. I will guide you step-by-step through everything you want to learn – pose workflow, lighting style, styling, camera angles, editing, anything relating to marketing and pricing for your business as well as a portfolio review.
