PREVIOUS MENTORSHIP PARTICIPANTS HAVE SAID:
“I would highly recommend you to any other photographer who is looking to take their skill-set to a new level. Your training was just a great experience and I can’t wait to incorporate some of what I learned into my next shoot.” -John
“My weakness has been off-camera lighting, a topic I neglected for far too long and your training was spot-on what I was looking for. No DVD or training related book can compare to the one-on-one experience of your mentorship; photographing the models, seeing and testing various lighting options that are out there, obtaining your feedback, etc. It made for an outstanding educational experience.” -Randy
“I really enjoyed the overview of your images and learning how you achieved the lighting on those as well as the live-shooting of the models, very helpful and educational! This was a great investment.” – Shannon
