One-on-One Mentoring

I am thrilled to offer one-on-one mentoring in three specific areas of expertise described below!  This mentoring is in-person and ideal for locals or visitors to the island.  We’ll meet for an hour and a half and I will share in-depth training, followed by some on-location practicing!  I will also be available via text, messenger and email for two weeks following the mentoring session to answer any follow up questions you have as you practice your new skills.

Learning Manual | $150DSC_9986

The first step to taking fabulous pictures is learning how to use all of your camera’s amazing features to their fullest.  This session is geared towards people who still use their camera in Auto mode, and no previous camera knowledge is required.  For this you will need a DSLR camera, your camera’s manual, and a notebook.  Part of our time will be spent sitting at the table discussing photography basics, and part will be spent outside practicing the new skills you have acquired!  When you leave, you will have in depth knowledge of the set up of your camera’s menus and functions, you will understand how to balance the three main factors that create the perfect exposure (Aperture, ISO, and Shutter speed!), and you will learn how to get your subject to pop right out of the picture!

Learning Photoshop | $150

Once you have mastered (or at least grasped) the art of capturing fantastic images you’ll want to know how to make those great pictures even better with an editing program like Photoshop.  While there are a few different editing programs that will help you create fantastic images, my personal preference – and the program I know best – is Photoshop.  For this, you will need either Adobe’s Creative Cloud (which gives you the latest full version of Photoshop), or Photoshop CS3 or higher.  This time together will provide you direction on developing a proficient work flow, teach you how to use layers t0 enhance and improve your
photos, nd give you the tools you need to correct imperfections, blemishes or flat out eye sores in pictures that you love.

It’s one thing to know how to use your camera in manual setting, but another thing entirely to know how to pose and frame your subjects to create the best images!  For this session you will need your DSLR camera and a notebook.  The bulk of this lesson will take place on location at a mock shoot.  It is imperative that you have already mastered the basics of shooting in manual for this session to be beneficial.  During this session, I will pass on to you my greatest tips for taking stunning visual images.  You will learn how to capture the true emotion and timeless beauty of your subjects.
