Beyond photography, this mentorship is about accountability, influence, and includes signature Marie pep talks for an ENTIRE YEAR – guaranteed to transform your shooting, your career, or both. We’ll begin our time together with a kick off questionnaire so I can best personalize your mentorship. Then, we’ll have a 90 minute online session to “meet,” discuss your responses, and hear my customized mentorship plan. This aids in ensuring my plan is exactly what you’re looking for.
This is where it really gets exciting: I’ll fly to you.
We will have 2 days together to thoroughly dive into your biggest needs including shooting side by side. I’ll choose a shooting subject or two sure to be food for your soul, but also to give us a variety in environments based on your professional goals. We will focus on things like light, composition, and my favorite part: recognizing the context of the images (emotion, moment, the story).
While we shoot, I’ll quietly observe you for areas of improvement and for your strengths. You’ll also have plenty of opportunity to observe me shoot also while I quietly explain why I’m doing what I’m doing. This is by far the best way for you to improve your shooting fast and you’ll also receive a few images of you shooting to use for your business. I’ll review your RAW files from our shoots as well as the final blog edited series of images. This is the best way for me to see where you struggle, develop your storytelling techniques, and give your confidence a boost when I draw out your strengths.
Aside from shooting, we can cover anything such as: developing your inner message and pairing that with clients, attracting and marketing the right clients, packaging your business (pricing, products), website optimization (to get more inquiries that want YOU), client and marketing communication, and so much more. No questions are off limits.
After the 2 Day Intensive
Shortly after I return home, you’ll receive my behind the scenes video series as I process my images from our time together (culling, process, final gallery, & blogging). This will help you see that though my online images are great, I have many flaws and get frustrated over missed moments too (you will feel a surge of confidence in yourself, trust me!).
This also includes 12 months of ongoing development support. We’ll have 6 online, screen share sessions (90 minutes each) where I can critique photos and marketing efforts as well as answer blossoming questions. I encourage you in between our sessions to email me with updates: goal results, recent sessions, frustrations, lightbulb moments, and more. It’s important to me that I keep a continued understanding of your progress and needs.
