These 4 sessions take you through Part 1 to 3 of the programme and end with a final coaching session after time has been given for practical application. After each part there is pre-work for the next session (which is usually a week later) and then time for review and feedback. Included in this package are my most useful tips for how to approach portrait and flight photography. This option lays an important foundation for taking good and then great photographs. Ideally, this should be followed in a couple of months by Part 4, which does a deep dive into composition and design. The package has been designed for photographers who are at the early stages of their journey, trying to get to grips with their camera and wanting to understand the basics (or what I call “the essentials”) for taking good photographs.

As part of this package you receive:

  • Part 1 to 3 of the mentorship programme (4 sessions in total & approx. 5 hours of training/mentorship)
  • Practical applications after each session.
  • Feedback on each practical application (at least 5 images reviewed with feedback/questions)
  • Electronic copy of the programme presentations
  • 10% off future coaching sessions (up to 3)

These 6 sessions take you through Part 1 to 4 of the mentorship programme. Part 4 is a deep, 2 session dive into composition and design. After each part there is pre-work for the next session (which is usually a week later) and then time for review and feedback. This package equips you with the knowledge you need to have a solid understanding of composition and design and ends with a final coaching session after time has been given for practical application. This is for intermediate and experienced photographers looking to build their confidence further, take images that are consistently good and understand how to move their images to great. Juliette Aristides says it well “Intuition and feeling without the knowledge and judgment of design principles are a liability in art” and this package ensures you can use your intuition and feelings with confidence.

As part of this package you receive:

  • Part 1 to 4 of the mentorship programme (6 sessions in total & approx. 7.5 hours of training/mentorship)
  • Practical applications after each session.
  • Feedback on each practical application (at least 5 images reviewed with feedback/questions)
  • Electronic copy of the programme presentations
  • 10% off future coaching sessions (up to 3)

These 9 sessions share with you everything I would have wanted to know about wildlife photography and take you through all 8 parts of my mentorship programme. The sessions include one of the most exciting topics in photography and that is how we unlock our creative potential as artists. Most training I have come across on creativity in photography focuses on the tools and techniques available to be more creative. This session not only gives you an overview of these but also gives you a holistic view of what is required to set the table for success. This “all-in-one” package is for all photographers who want to push their boundaries so they can reach their full potential as artists. The programme is built to work as a cohesive whole and this package ties everything together by sharing with you my post processing dos and don’ts, helping you put together your own photographic portfolio as well as discussing any final knowledge gaps and next steps.

As part of this package you receive:

  • All 8 parts of the mentorship programme (9 sessions in total and approx. 14 hours of training/mentorship)
  • Practical applications after each session.
  • Feedback on each practical application (at least 5 images reviewed with feedback/questions)
  • Electronic copy of the programme presentations
  • 20% off future coaching sessions (up to 3)
  • 10% off future curated tours or group workshops / outings (up to 1)
