How it Works:
The Camera Mentorship Programme  

Mentee - how it works:
I will work with one selected UK based documentary photographer throughout 2024, my aim is to help develop their documentary project work.

Are you at the begining of a personal documentary photography project and looking for constructive feedback on your editing, ideas and the devlopement of your work? Do you have a long-term project that you need a different perspective on? Are you interested in working with someone who will help focus your ideas and methods of working?

Together we will work on the research, production, editing and presentation of your work. We will meet online or face to face (depending on location) once a month. In addition you will be able to email or call when you need specific or urgent advice. 

These sessions will help you to identify the next steps in the production of your documentary work.

If you are interested in being part of the CAMERA Mentorship Programme you will need to be at least 18 years of age and you will need to have at least started the research and developmental stages of your photography project. Ideally you will also be creating visuals for the project.

The CAMERA Mentorship Programme is a completely free service.

To show your interest please send me a message with your:
  • Name
  • Age
  • Location
  • Project concept 
  • Production stage
  • Aspirations 
  • Why you?

You can message me direct on this link ︎

We will choose a mentee or mentees on an ongoing basis.

I would also like to hear from established photographers in any discpline to join the mentoring roster. Wherever you are in the world.

Ideally you will have had your work published in newspapers, magazines and a bonus in book form.

I would like to have at least another five photographers mentoring alongside me in 2024.

In theory each eastblished photographer would mentor somoene close to their own main skill set.

Message me if you are interested with your website and social media links.

Thank you.
