I've been thinking about this for a long time. I'd have people ask me questions while I was in my booth during art fairs, and I found I knew more than I thought I did. I loved sharing what I new. It was very satisfying for me to provide a little inspiration or knowledge to keep them moving forward in their pursuit of photography. A little kindness and encouragement can go a long way!

I officially started offering mentoring services this summer. In-person mentoring is available to people who live near me in Avon/St Cloud, Minnesota. And I'm also happy to provide image critiques online.

Who is this for?

You've got a DSLR, mirrorless, or point-and-shoot camera, but are disappointed with your results. You're probably relatively new to photography, or are now wanting to dedicate some of your time to learning more.

Looking for composition help? Critique of images?

If there is something you're needing help with that I know I can't help with, I will let you know up front. I'll never claim to know it all.

Be the boss of your camera.

Do you want more control over your camera, but don't know where to start? I "make" you read your manual (yes, you really need to read it), but I also know they can be clear as mud to figure out.

I can help.

Contact me and I'll explain my mentoring process (which is custom tailored to you, by the way).

I snuck this photograph of Debby who I was mentoring this fall. She wrote a nice testimonial that you can read on the Mentoring page, as well as get more information.
