WHATEVER THE FUCK THE BUZZ WORD IS


 

TO HELL WITH TRENDS. BE TRUE TO YOURSELF.

Shoot True. This is something I need a constant reminder of. But so many photographers and creatives haven’t even heard of it, let alone know the meaning behind it.

For years (and to this day) I struggle with creative crises. It feels like I’m being pulled in so many directions with our business, my creativity and by trends in the industry. It’s easy to be distracted by all this, and life, but it all feeds the fog - that unsureness about what the next step should be.

Shoot True is a motif that reminds me to do what feels right, and is in line with our core values, and to hell with the rest. Shoot True will be the backbone of our mentorship.

WHAT THIS AIN’T.

All business talk. We won’t be delving into how to make six figures a year, marketing techniques to manipulate clients, or other cold-hearted corporate-minded bullshit.

WHAT IT IS.

I’m not a business guy. But I’ve made some great decisions for my brand, and several bad ones. I want to help you navigate these decisions based on my personal experience.

This is an encouragement-based program, with a huge focus on listening to yourself. You heard that right. Your voice is in there, screaming at you through the fog. I want to help you find your voice again, and shoot true.

There’s no structure here. Whatever’s on your mind, ask it. And we’ll chat away for hours, probably.

We can go over how I handle obstacles, where I find inspiration, how to listen to your voice, obeying the “Fuck That’s Boring” Reflex, ignoring the noise, owning a niche, my mindset and how I approach photography, weddings and humans.

And, of course, we can delve into the practical - camera shit, editing, lighting and how I shoot in different scenarios.

Bottom line — nothing is off the table.

MENTORING PRICING

ONE-ON-ONE

$2,000 single / $1,150 shared with a mate (per person)

5+ hours together, live shoot with a couple and editing class.

These one-one-one mentor sessions are held in the Mighty Blue Mountains and go for around 5 hours. Includes a catch up over a multitude of coffees, talk about whatever’s on your mind with your business or creativity, a live shoot with a real couple, and an editing class where we can go over the shots taken during the shoot. Oh, and there’ll probably be a meal thrown in there somewhere.

You’ll need a notebook, a pen, your camera gear and a laptop.

Also you’ll receive one of our Preset Packs to kick your post-processing in the ass.

ONLINE MENTORING

$500 initial / $150 follow-ups (optional)

90+ minute online video chat mentor sessions. Additional time add-ons available.

Ask anything. I’m an open book. Subjects we could delve into are endless, but some examples might be how I approach photography, how I plan for a wedding, light, post-processing, pricing and branding.

You’ll need a notebook, a pen, and at least 5 cups of coffee.

Also you’ll receive one of our Preset Packs to kick your post-processing in the ass.

 
 

IT’S TIME TO BE FUCKING DIFFERENT.

So do it. Stop being afraid to do the opposite of what’s expected. Buck trends. Take risks. Eat those chances up. I want you to be creatively fulfilled, know what the fuck you’re talking about, and to grow your business.

If you feel we’re a good match for each other then drop me a line.
