Apprentice for a day
There was a lot of interest for my last "Photo Assistant Opportunity " ( I'll offer them again, but in the meantime allow me to leave this as an open invitation. What I'm suggesting is I work with you one-on-one and offer anyone interested personalized education in the form of "photo apprentice for a day". For a fixed fee of $100 I'll guide you through a photo shoot from start to finish. This is not me doing and you just looking, this is you doing and me coaching. What I'd work with you on is: 1-- Creating a shoot concept (approx 2 hours) 2-- Finding a model (1 Hour) 3-- Locating the props (variable) 4-- Scouting a location (variable) 5-- Planning and scheduling the shoot (variable) 6-- Doing the shoot together (approx 2-3 hours) 7-- Editing the final images (approx 2 hours) 8-- Presentation/deliver to the client/model (variable) The fee just covers my time and coaching presumed to be about a typical day. It is not a physical "day" but a typical work day (7-8 hours) spread out over several weeks as our mutual schedules permit. this can be adjusted if you need a bit more or less. You can bring your own talent, or I can usually help find make-up artists, models etc that you can help select. Also available for reasonable fees are access to my studio, props, paid model pool. I get various requests from models for photo shoots but I am very selective in which I can take on, and generally charge models for their portfolio work. If they are unable to pay the rates and agree to shoot with my apprentices, I add them to a waiting list. Then under this Apprentice program, you have access to some of the models I have on the waiting list. Since I have my own studio, I can make that available too, for a discounted rate of $15/hour under this program. If this is of interest just drop me a note at Mailto:[masked] and we can discuss a "virtual" day aimed at your personal needs.
