Equine photography business mentoring
Take your equine photography business to the next level
We are now offering mentoring sessions with either of the hosts of the podcast for anyone who desires to take their equine photography business to the next level, whether that be starting your business from the ground up or improving your current operations for increases in profitability.
In-person or Skype / Facetime mentoring
The consultations can be in person if you are close enough to make that worth while, but in most cases we will set up 1 hour Skype conversations with you. You can purchase the appointments in two-hour increments with two 1 hour working sessions with each purchase. How you schedule those will be up to you and your mentoring photographer. In person consultations are two-hour minimum. Mentoring appointments are $200 for 2 hours. You may purchase as you go or you may purchase packages in 4 hour increments for $375.00 (4 one hour sessions).
