Photographer Mentorship 3

Hi, I'm Tom

I am an Award-Winning Published Wedding Photographer in NJ.

I love seeing people smile and creating memories in front of my camera. Making people laugh and cry with tears of happiness through my photos is what I strive for each and every day.

I have gained so many opportunities as a photographer that I will never regret making this my career choice. Every job is different, no two days are ever the same, and I get to work with some of the greatest and most talented people in the industry. I’m a trendsetter, an adventurer, a coffee lover, and a photographer!

Whether you are brand new to photography or you have been doing this for a while, I would love to help!

HOW IT WORKS:

MY STRATEGIC PLAN

FOR GROWTH

SCHEDULE YOUR

MENTORSHIP SESSIONS

MENTORSHIP STARTS WITH

A PHONE CALL

Every mentee I’ve worked with has had a different set of goals or needs, so our first phone consultation allows me to learn about your business and help determine the areas we should focus on together. After reviewing your questionnaire and my thoughts from our call, I will put together a plan for how we should focus our mentorship time together to maximize growth in your business. Our mentorship program will be tailored specially for you!

After determining the direction for our mentorship, it’s time to schedule your mentorship sessions. When possible, we prefer to mentor one on one in person, but Zoom mentorship is also available for those seeking mentorship out of state. Mentoring plans vary from mentee to mentee, with some just needing several hours of one on one training, and others opting for a more concentrated and in depth three to six month program.

Just follow the link below where you will be able to schedule a free phone consultation with me. You will also be sent a questionnaire that helps me get to know you, your business, and some of your goals so I’m able to gain some clarity and context before our call.

wherever you are in your photography journey, I can help!  let's chat!

MY THREE TO SIX MONTH MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

my three to six month program is designed for photographers who are in need of an in depth revamp of their business in order to take it to a new level. we offer guidance that is strategically tailored to the needs of each individual mentee.  included are:

+ A WEEKLY PROGRESS EMAIL
+ WEEKLY CHECK UPS

I've found that three to six months is about the amount of time we need to see a major change and measurable progress.

this three to six month program can significantly help with goals pertaining to booking more clients, how to's, and working through different methods and strategies in support of reaching each mentee's unique goals.  This is all about fostering a relationship where we walk hand in hand with you in pursuit of your particular goals.

I love pouring love and time into those who are pursuing a career in photography, and are perhaps feeling stuck in the same market. This three to six month mentorship is perfect for someone that is ready to move up and truly elevate their business!
