Mentorships are intensive and can cover all aspects of running a profitable heart-driven photography business, marketing yourself effectively to your ideal clientele (how i have grown my business to what it is today), start to finish editing and workflow, how to create unique storytelling sessions, pricing yourself appropriately to profit more and spend less time working, how to figure out how to balance it all and still be happy, refreshed, inspired and also available to your family/friends in the midst of it. I like to do a website/portfolio critique as well as dive deep into WHY you shoot and help you form a practical plan for carving out your unique niche in the industry. I am a feeler so be prepared to share with me. I will need to truly get to know you and your story to be able to help you best.
For non-professionals: If you aren't currently a business owner or looking to be, the mentorship can be a bit more free flowing based around what you want to learn! We can cover how to shoot in manual mode with your current gear, looking for light even in the darkness, how to embrace reality, wonder and creativity simultaniously in your work and documenting your daily life and family in the most original and special way possible.
"Before I came to Magi I had zero experience in photography. However, after a few one on one sessions my skills improved significantly! She was so patient and able to answer any questions I had. I left all my sessions feeling so inspired. Magi is a one of a kind person and photographer. I hope to keep working with her in the future!" -Kelsea

I really enjoy is teaching individuals on a one-to-one basis. This model allows me time to get to know the whole person versus just a photographer. This is why I created these mentorship programs — they allow enough time to develop honest, sincere communication which creates the foundation for a healthy creative environment. And we can really focus in on covering what you need!
