First and foremost, THANK YOU so much for believing in what I have to offer to the photography community. I am blown away by the amount of aspiring photographers who want to learn from ME! It is so wonderful that you want to grow your business, congratulations! Together we will discover your strengths and growth areas and work towards getting you where you need to be.
What is a mentor you may ask? A mentor is someone who is eager to teach and exchange knowledge. Someone who is an established photographer in your specific industry. (Don’t seek out light and airy if you’re dark and moody). An honest critic who is invested in your success and devoted to the industry. Mentorships can offer value to mentors and mentees when the relationship is handled with care, honesty, and sensitivity. A photographer never stops learning, and even the best photographers in the industry have something to gain by seeking a mentor.
I offer two different types of mentorships. Read below to find out which option best fits your needs!
Wedding Day Mentorship $400
Are you wanting to focus on becoming a wedding photographer? This is the mentorship for you! You will travel with Samantha to a real wedding. We will start our morning with coffee and breakfast to discuss everything from the start of the wedding day to the sparkler exit finish! During this mentorship, you will watch, learn, ask as many questions as you want, and shoot. Yes! I said shoot. This day will last approximately 8-12 hours and the exclusive behind the scene action at a real SamSlay Photography wedding. After your wedding day mentorship, you will receive a lengthy follow-up email, full of additional information and a recap of the day. *Mentorees are required to know basic manual settings & own a DSLR camera*
Personal Growth Mentorship $250
This is the opportunity to learn hands-on! If you learn best by doing, let's do a session together so I can explain how to interact with your clients and how to use light and location. You will watch, learn, ask and listen. Then I will hand the reins over to you as you create beautiful images. We will begin our mentoring day with a 1 hour coffee date. We will discuss everything from attracting + booking clients to editing + delivery. This mentorship includes 2 hour hands-on session, photographing alongside me as I explain my process, 2 hour image review session of photos from our session, and a head shot you can use for personal and business purposes. You will have the option to shoot with a senior or couple (depending on the route you are taking your business.) This day will last approximately 5 hours. After your personal growth mentorship, you will receive a lengthy follow-up email, full of additional information and a recap of the day. *Mentorees are required to know basic manual settings & own a DSLR camera*
