Go ahead and register now for next year as seats for the Retreat are limited. If you cannot get to Lexington, KY for the Retreat, register for the online "Study Along" option.
We are so excited to offer this deep dive into fine art black and white portraiture.
With an entire year to absorb the many facets of this style of portraiture, we believe you will find great satisfaction in mastering it.
From understanding what qualifies as a fine art black and white print to how to market and sell it and everything in-between; how to light, pose, shoot, post process and even print (or understand how to order the printing from a lab), this genre of portraiture will delight you. Emerge with new eyes as to the potential this will have for your business.
In addition, you may just find your inner artist come to life as you follow in the footsteps of photographic giants of the past.
There are two options every year for this Mentorship.
ONE: The recommended option includes the Retreat which is in Lexington, Kentucky in mid-July. Why? Because we believe in the principle of information and then application.
The monthly online classes (Touch Points) are intense, hour long LIVE classes using Zoom with time for questions at the end. They are the information portion.
At the Retreat, all of the online class information comes to life as you see Tim in action with models in different "real life" scenarios (ie: families, couples, kiddos, etc) to allow you to get involved with balancing lights, understand posing and learning communication skills to reinforce all that the online classes were about; this is the application portion.
We call this"hybrid" learning and over the years, have found this format has the best retention rate.
TWO: For those who simply cannot come to Lexington, Kentucky for the Retreat, we offer the Study Along, the online only option.
Either option includes all Touch Point recordings to keep for future reference, a private Facebook page to post your images for critique, homework assignments and the bonus of making new friends who are on the same path as you are.
To hold your seat for next year's class, simply go to the Registration page and sign up ($99.) Your first Mentorship Payment is not due until September 1, 2021.
Once we receive your Registration, Tim will do a quick phone chat with you about which option is best for you (with the Retreat or without the Retreat) and answer any questions you may have.
Price with the Retreat included is *$169.00 per month for 12 months. Price without the Retreat (Study Along) is $99.00 per month for 12 months.
*This additional cost pays your Retreat tuition divided into 12 payments.
Note: Alumni of any of our past Mentorship classes may attend the Online option for only $59.00 per month.
