I am really excited and pleased to announce the launch of the new Beyond the Lens Creative Mentorship Program, aimed at serious photographers who want to work with me one-on-one to develop their creative vision.
This program is by application only, and I am only accepting a very limited number of students to maximize the results for each person, or mentee. There are several plans available, from one month to six months, basic to intensive.
I’ve had lots of requests over the years from students for a more personal and custom tailored plan to help them improve their creative photography. But mentoring is much more than cameras and evaluating pictures. It’s really about guidance and support; the intangibles that provide inspiration and motivation to push ahead when things get difficult.
In my own life it was the guidance of a few critical mentors that made the difference for me. And with the help of technology I feel fortunate to be able to connect with others around the world.
I’m also extremely interested in helping kids and students who have an interest in pursuing a creative life. So I’m working on a special “educational” version of the program that I want to donate to select students. I’ll be working with a few other creative mentors to implement this, so I’m really excited about the possibilities.
The program is open until I fill the limited spots I am offering, then it will close until new spots become available. I’m not interested in making lots of money, but rather making a difference.
