Photographers interested in applying for the mentorship, should email email@example.com by January 31, 2019. The email must include a link to their wedding photography samples and a cover letter explaining the applicant’s experience in wedding photography, areas seeking to improve upon, what the candidate loves most about weddings, and where they see their business progressing in five years.
Jones, one of Boston’s most successful event photographers, will select only two photographers to work with her privately at a significantly reduced rate of $150. To prepare for the wedding season, the selected photographers will meet with her twice per month starting with a group call on Monday March 4, with one-on-one mentoring calls through May. The chosen photographers will get individual feedback on current photos, learning new business strategies and creating marketing materials.
“A great photographer does more than take beautiful pictures,” Jones explains. “Creating a thriving wedding photography business requires a wide range of skills and knowledge.”
One-on-one sessions with Jones will help aspiring photographers:
- Define their ideal client and target market within the wedding industry
- Create marketing materials, including a website and social media pages, that will attract their ideal clients
- Review pricing, packages, and products so that photographers are profitable and competitively priced
- Gain feedback on basic composition, lighting, and posing techniques
- Create a positive client experience so that their business gains more referrals
- Make their workflow, editing, and production process more efficient and effective
- Manage the logistics of a busy wedding day, along with the clients’ needs and wants, family dynamics, and demanding shot lists
- Know common wedding pitfalls and how to avoid them
In addition to her mentorship program, the award-winning event and portrait photographer will be teaching all she knows about telling wedding stories through images to up-and-coming photographers in 2019. Her next class, “Big Events”, offered through Newton Community Education, begins on January 15 at Newton South High School. The six-week class will help ambitious amateur photographers capture photos of friends and family looking their best at big events. Participants will learn how about common elements to expect at large events, equipment needs, addressing different lighting scenarios and getting the best shots possible.
