Mentor / Development

The Program

ODP Mentor/Development Program is for the beginner to the intermediate visual artist/photographer that desires to develop and is seeking to improve their creative photography skills. The programs are designed to help you gain insight as well as get a different perspective in defining the direction and path that is your style. As a visual artist/photographer I understand just how confusing this journey can be. To help I will be accepting a limited number of students monthly to assist them with the many options of their photography visions and goals.

The programs will consist of different styles as well as opportunities to meet the needs of the visual artist/photographer of today. As a visual artist/photographer I have a varied range of professional experience from protest to funerals and many other styles to include music, portraiture, lifestyle events and contemporary art. I have been in business full-time for several years and have office/studio space to work with you where and when needed.
