I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was going to open up two mentoring sessions for this fall, and today I want to go over everything the mentoring sessions will cover, as well as start accepting applications!

Since I’ve never done mentoring sessions before, I won’t be charging for the first round, because you guys are going to be my guinea pigs. I will also only be working with two photographers this round, to keep it simple. So who is this mentoring session for? Ideally…

  • Anyone just starting out in this business or within in the first two years of becoming a photographer.
  • Anyone who needs help with SEO/marketing.
  • Anyone struggling to find their niche in this industry.
  • Anyone struggling with their actual craft – whether you have specific technical questions or are just trying to find your style.
The mentoring session will be a month long – from November 15th to December 15th – and includes a one hour skype/in person meeting to go over all the things you’re struggling with, unlimited emails during that time to answer your questions, homework assignments addressing some of your specific problems, and another follow-up/skype meeting at the end to see how things are going.
I love teaching, and I love working one on one with other photographers or people interested in becoming photographers, so I’m really really excited to get this off the ground. If you’re interested, please email me at katie[at]katiejanephoto[dot]com with the subject line mentoring session, and include the following information:
  • Your name
  • Your website or if you don’t have a website yet, a link to a gallery where I can view your work
  • Three specific things you’re struggling with as a photographer
  • Three specific goals you have as a photographer
I’ll accept applications until Monday, October 15th, and will notify the two people I’ve picked for the first round on Friday, October 19th. SO excited!! Thank you so much in advance for your interest in working with me!!
