Private Mentoring, Portfolio Reviews, or Consultations

I work with photographers all over the world, doing private tutorials via Skype, telephone, or in person if you live in Southern California. Sessions usually last an hour and can be on a regular or as needed basis. My specialty is helping photographers focus their visions and get their work into the fine art market.
