MENTORING

If visual storytelling is something that interests you but you are not sure how to go about it; or if Photoshop seems like an intimidating program to use, I would love to be able to help you.

 

I now offer one-on-one in person or via Zoom mentoring sessions as well as one-on-one workshops. 

During these sessions, you will get the the time and space to learn how to approach visual storytelling techniques at your pace.

Before your chosen session, we will have a quick discussion to help me determine your skill level and the direction you would like to take with your art.

One-on-one mentoring

One-on-one workshop

Investment price

1hr – £40

2hr- £70

3hr- £95

You can purchase sessions ranging from 1 hour up to 3 hours in duration. 

After your initially purchased time is up, you may purchase extra hours up to 3 hrs for the prices stated above, then anything over at £20 per additional hour. 

What to expect

Your session will either take place via Zoom if you live far away, or in person (Covid dependent) if you're in a 15 mile radius of Hereford, UK and this is your preferred method.

In either case, we will discuss anything from finding inspiration, through using symbolism, to the best tools in Photoshop to create your vision.

 

We will then be editing together an image you've already taken in real time. 

After an initial evaluation - a few days before your session - I will put together your personalised study material that will best suit your needs. 

Freebies (for 3hrs +)

  • Bundle of 10 textures 

  • Upon purchasing 3 hrs, you will receive a free 20 minute review of a new image you create within a month of your mentoring session.

What to expect

Join me for a private one-on-one 6-hour intensive workshop in Herefordshire. We will spend the day creating and exploring the possibilities of your imagination as well as learn necessary Photoshop techniques to make your vision a reality.

This workshop experience will take place outdoors and  includes a hands-on photoshoot focusing either on self-portraiture or with the services of a model (the latter incurs and additional £50). 

 

Before your session we will have a discussion over your skill levels and desires for the photoshoot. I will then develop a concept and prepare props and costumes to bring along for the first half of the day.

 

In the second part of the day we will bring back the images from your shoot and edit together. I will teach you my Photoshop skills and provide you with techniques you'll be able to use on your own in the future.

What is included

The day will be split into three sections.

Section 1.

  • Storytelling 101 through visual imagery 

  • Inspiration, conceptualization, idea & style development

  • Symbolism

  • Finding or building props + wardrobe sourcing

Section 2.
