Mentor Sessions

Currently my schedule does not support dedicated, longterm one-on-one mentoring commitments. However, since I absolutely love offering whatever knowledge and insight I can to fellow photographers, I am offering hourly mentoring sessions. Your session will be a video chat with me where I provide you with my honest (but loving) opinions, advice and guidance on whatever topics you’d like. You can pick my brain about literally anything your heart desires, including: general business questions, pricing, getting the most out of your camera, shooting, styling clients, editing styles and logistics, software questions, client relations, website design, your artistic vision, or your value. Nothing is off limits and I promise to be an open book.

Hourly mentoring sessions begin at $200 for one hour. Additional sessions for returning photographers will be discounted to $150.

Portfolio Reviews

As an internationally exhibited artist with over 15 years of experience & a BA in photography, I bring a formal education, seasoned eye and open mind to the table. Ever since art school, critiques have always been what’s prompted me to examine my photography and grow the most as an artist. I believe there’s nothing more helpful than thoughtful and honest constructive criticism of our work. I am excited to now formally offer this service to other photographers. My upfront approach is meant to give you valuable input that will honor your strengths, while also pushing you to stretch beyond your comfort zone. Each review will include personalized, succinct feedback on 50-75 images of your choosing. You are encouraged to include specific topics or questions that you feel you would like help with. My written review will be delivered within one week and will be broken down into the following topics that I find matter most to quality imagery.

Exposure & Lighting . Composition . Color management & tones . Posing & Connections . Artistic Voice .

Portfolio reviews cost $100.00


what people are saying…

“Bridget is super knowledgeable and insanely intuitive. She can look at an image..and know not only the technical settings you took the image with but also the intent you had behind it. She’s both encouraging and deliberate with her critique and does not make you feel bad for being a beginner. I will take all of her suggestions and information to heart. All of her feedback is super helpful, not only now for the beginning of my journey but I believe lots of the knowledge I gained from this critique will also serve me for years to come. This helps me tremendous to be thoughtful and bring more insight to my sessions and my business in general.” - Jennifer Shaffer

I was ready to throw in the towel with my photography business but my mentoring with Bridget completely changed my view. She helped me to see my strengths and was super constructive in helping me see the areas that I need work on and gave helpful suggestions. It completely opened my eyes to simple mistakes I was making that I didn't even notice before working with her.  I'm ready to re-start my business with newfound confidence and a clearer path for success” -Desirea Corbett
