Mentorship Program with Photographer Juliet R. Harrison
This Online Mentoring program is geared towards experienced Equine photographers who want to move their work in the direction of doing more Fine Art. Many come to a place where they want to explore the idea of developing a more personal portfolio of work that can someday be submitted to Art galleries and Fine Art juried competitions. Making that transition can be incredibly daunting. Or maybe you want to develop a more personal style to be able to offer your clients something more unique. Or you might just want to acquire a better understanding of the world of Fine Art Photography. This program is designed to offer you the tools to accomplish your goals.
Offered is a 3 month intensive mentoring program that can get you on your way. The program will be tailored to your specific background and intentions. The basic program will offer the building blocks to understanding what Fine Art is, such as the history of photography and its’ place in the history of art. You will be given exercises and research assignments that will help to refine your eye with the aim being, that you find expression in your own voice and style through your photography.
The ultimate goal of this program will be that at the end you will have the beginnings of a unique portfolio of 20 images that show a consistency of quality and imagery.
Beginning near the end of the first month we will start doing weekly critiques of between 5-10 images. The aim of those critiques will be to be able to keep some of the images each week to use to build the portfolio.
Also supplied will be information about entering competitions, what you need and how to approach a gallery for submission.
This is not a technical course. You are expected to have a good working knowledge of your camera and if you work digitally, of after capture methods of manipulation. The method of shooting does not matter. Nor does how you come up with the final product. This program will not teach you how to be a photographer. What it will do is help you develop what you are already doing, or would like to do, so you can take it beyond commercial or documentary work.
All mentoring is given in individual, one-on-one sessions. Mentoring and critiquing will take place primarily through online emails. Images for critiquing to be sent as low res. Jpegs. Occasional telephone consultations will be available as needed (with a limit of 1 hour per week)
COST - $350.00 for the 3 month program (limited to 5 students at a time)
