A mentoring programme is an extension of a 1 or 2 day workshop or course that aims to give you more. A lot more.
Newborn photography is so different to other genres in so many ways. You can instruct an older child or adult in the studio. You can’t with a new baby. That means doing things very differently, and the skills required are perhaps like nothing you’ll have come across before.
The skills you need range from the obvious things like lighting, settings and angles, plus styling and using all the adorable props, to how to read the baby, keep them safe, comfortable and happy and of course, pose them.
So how do you learn these things? Well many learn slowly and as they go along, which is what Maddy did nearly 13 years ago, but there was no training available back then. She had to pick things up and learn the hard way. Now of course you can attend any number of workshops or 1:1 courses.
You can sign up for Maddy’s mentoring programme which is to be held in Kent, and is designed to really dig deep into the nitty gritty depths of newborn photography and learn it all in chunks, rather than have to take it all in one one day.
There will be 5 classes over a year. Each class will cover something different, and in greater depth. You’ll be in a group and will have much more chance to get involved and ask questions, and because its broken down, you’ll have more time to take notes, take photos, and take it all in.
Your course will have people you’ll get to know across the year as they will attend all the classes with you, and you will all be in a closed Facebook course long group where you can support each other, to really get you growing.
This programme is meant to help you learn better but also to allow Maddy to see your weaknesses and help you with them as the course goes on.
By the end of the course you should see real improvements in your work.
The first date is November. 22nd 2022, with the next class date being arranged at the first class, and so on through the course. Usually classes are 8 – 12 weeks apart.
