Mentor Sessions begin with a questionnaire to help me understand your needs.  On the day of the actual session you will receive: 1 hour of teaching and an on-site portfolio review, 2 hours of hands on shooting with a custom styled shoot based on your previously discussed portfolio needs and the vision that you have for your brand. I want to help you become confident to shoot film in any situation, to help you feel good about the way you shoot and the images you create for your clients, and of course, to make sure your clients get bespoke results every time. During the time of teaching we will discuss the ins and outs of shooting film, different film formats, metering, working with your lab, how to achieve the look you want with your lab, pricing yourself correctly, and much more. During the time of the hands on shooting you will learn how to work in specific light situations, how to balance editorially styling your shot, while still working with real people (a real couple, model, or family),  and how to meter in a way that gives you creative freedom even in difficult situations. If you're interested in working with me to learn how to get comfortable with shooting film, or how to capture incredible emotion from your clients, fill out the form below! We'll start a conversation and set something up!



MY MENTORING SESSION WITH GENELLYNNE WAS SO MUCH FUN AND SO HELPFUL! SHE SET UP A SMALL SHOOT WITH A GORGEOUS FAMILY AND HELPED ME WITH ALL OF THE AREAS I WAS STRUGGLING WITH. SHE WAS AN OPEN BOOK AND THE SHOOT WAS MORE ABOUT ME LEARNING THAN HER GETTING IMAGES FOR A SUBMISSION. I HAD THE BIGGEST FEAR OF SHOOTING INDOORS AND SHE SET OUR SESSION UP IN ORDER TO HELP ME OVERCOME MY FEAR AND WALK ME THROUGH IT! SHE TAUGHT ME HOW TO SET MY METER AND HOLD MY METER FOR SHOOTING INDOORS AS WELL AS OFFERED ADVICE ON WHAT TO RATE MY FILM IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THE LOOK I WAS GOING FOR. THE HANDS ON EXPERIENCE WAS SO AMAZING. SHE DEFINITELY HELPED ME GET OVER MY FEAR OF SHOOTING INDOORS BECAUSE NOW I KNOW THE STEPS TO TAKE AND HOW TO METER. WHEN MY SCANS CAME BACK, GENELLYNNE REVIEWED MY IMAGES AND ANSWERED ALL OF MY QUESTIONS [SPECIFICALLY...AS TO WHY ONE IMAGE TURNED OUT DIFFERENTLY THAN ANOTHER]. DURING OUR SESSION, GENELLYNNE WAS AN OPEN BOOK AND I KNOW THAT IF I EVER NEED HER HELP OR ADVICE ON A SHOOT, I CAN ALWAYS JUST TEXT HER!
