Mentor Photo Session - $100

It’s so much more fun when you have someone else to shoot with, and it’s even better knowing it’s still YOUR photo shoot for YOUR portfolio. This 60 minute session is meant for us to shoot side-by-side together. For the first half of the shoot, I’ll lead it out, so you get a feel for my workflow during a shoot. The second half is meant for you to take on the lead, where I’ll give feedback about posing, camera functions, etc… Overall, I want you to  1)   get hands-on experience, 2) feel confident during shoots,  and  3) walk away with your own beautiful photos.    20 min | Travel time for dope locations    20 min | Observation and side-by-side shooting    20 min | Taking the lead    Topics covered during this session:    Exposure, shutter speed, aperture, ISO, posing, lighting, equipment (camera body, lenses, sd cards, etc), photographer to client communication during a shoot

Mentor Editing Session - $125

Taking the photo is just one step in the photography process. While it’s a big step, editing can make or break a photo. Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop are your bread and butter in the editing process. Photoshop helps with more heavy duty and detailed editing, while Lightroom is geared towards efficient editing for portraits and weddings. However, Lightroom can be quite the maze to navigate. In a 90 minute session, I want to help you conquer this beast so you can  1) better organize your shoots, 2) edit photos efficiently,  and  3) find the style that fits your aesthetic.    20 min | Setting up and organizing your Lightroom Catalog    30 min | Editing & Workflow Observation    30 min | Editing & Workflow Demo    10 min | Q&A    Topics that are covered during this session:    Catalog structure, Importing, Exporting, Lighting and Color Correction, Portrait edits, Using Lightroom and Photoshop together, Batch Editing, Presets

Kind Words from Fellow Photographers

“Brooks has been instrumental in teaching me editing principles and tricks to Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. He has also helped me shape my style as a photographer and how I work with clients through taking me on shoots with him as a secondary shooter and having me in shoots as a model. Being apart of shoots with Brooks has showed me how to make clients feel happy and comfortable in front of a camera. Being mentored by Brooks has truly shaped me into a better, more confident photographer.”
