“One sees clearly only with the heart. What is essential is invisible to the eyes.” –Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

I have spent my entire life developing and following my own creative path. Over the years I have learned how to make creativity the central theme of my life, whether through photography, writing, drawing, or contemplation of nature. Now I happily share principles and insights focused on creativity that I hope will be helpful to you in fulfilling your artistic potential.

Work one-on-one with me to refine your creative vision and advance your artistic and career goals with a mentorship program that fits your needs.

Your mentorship begins with a comprehensive discussion, analysis and overview of your skills along with an assessment of your creative and artistic development: where you’ve been, where you are, and most importantly, where you want to be.

Meaningful work as a photographer requires a commitment to your personal vision, and the stories you have to share; the camera comes second. That’s what matters most to me, and this program is deigned to help you achieve the kind of personal success and transformation you have always imagined.

Your mentorship can include:

  • Guidance in all areas of your photography
  • Uncovering your artistic direction
  • Review and overhaul of your personal artistic process
  • Review and critique of past bodies of work, looking for threads and themes
  • Portfolio building or review, critique and analysis
  • Creative editing and workflow in Lightroom
  • Review and critique of your website
  • Goal setting and developing an action plan for implementing goals
  • Custom photo assignments and exercises
  • Fine art printing
