One on One
I am very much a hands on learner…trying to read something and apply it just doesn’t work for me, I need someone to sit down, fully explain, show me, then let ME do it, for it to have any hope of sticking. This was a HUGE struggle for me trying to learn about my first DSLR. I knew NOTHING about aperture or ISO or shutter speeds, so photographing people was out of the question! I didn’t have an opportunity to do one on one mentoring when I first started out so I am so happy to be able to offer this to others that are of the same mindset.
When I first started my photography journey, I had questions. A ridiculous amount of questions….and struggled to find the answers. I was lacking in confidence, in a new city and to be honest, too intimidated by other photographers to reach out. I was fearful of them assuming I was just another “photographer” trying get in the industry. I took a handful courses online, tried to read ALL the books but something was still missing. Being a hands on learner and incredible inpatient, reading something and then trying to apply it just doesn’t work. I needed someone to physically show and explain to me what to do and why in order for it to really sink in. Someone in person to answer my questions right then and there.
I know there are others creatives out there that learn the same way I do so I am extending my knowledge to help fellow aspiring photographers who struggle to find those answers…I want to help you build confidence, something I had struggled with until I found my true calling. Introducing; The Paper Deer Mentoring!
I want to really focus on building confidence and honing in on your strengths and weaknesses, and what you really want to work on. I am an open book and will answer whatever questions you have.

In Person Workshops
Public speaking has been a struggle for me since I was very little and the thought of talking in front of anyone makes me sick to my stomach. But last year I was invited to teach at The Family Narrative and even though I couldn’t eat before hand and my stomach was doing flips…..5 minutes into it I realized I was with friends and was talking about something that I have such a love and respect for. This profession is tough but all the while so very rewarding. I get to meet and work with the most incredible humans and I am so excited to announce my 2018 Workshop schedule!
