Online forums, photo sharing sites and social media groups can be great for the odd tip or interaction with the pros in the industry, but getting dedicated assistance with your unique pet photography shooting and editing challenges can sometimes be a challenge!
You're in luck though - I offer a variety of online solutions to give you that focused 1:1 attention from an expert - even when that expert is on the other side of the world!
"Charlotte changed the way I see my photography.
Her answers were exactly what I needed and gave me another perspective about my style. She helped me choose my best images, gave tips on how to improve each one of them and suggestions for future sessions. Now, every time I am editing, I think about the things she said and because of that, I feel much more confident."
One of the best ways to improve your photography is to have your work looked at by an experienced photographer in your exact specialist area of photography - that's me!
I believe in gentle but honest constructive criticism - this is what will help you improve across the following areas:
Send up to 10 images in high resolution
I’ll review the images and offer constructive written feedback - guaranteed to help you improve!
BONUS: Includes a follow-up email to discuss feedback if required
We jump on a video call and chat about your images, in person!
Send up to 25 images in high resolution
We review the images together and I offer constructive feedback, while we chat about how you can improve
Up to 1 hour
BONUS: Receive a video recording of your session to keep
"Charlotte, thank you so much for my mentoring session! It was SO helpful and your enthusiasm and suggestions were fantastic. I've been shooting and editing for years without any substantive feedback and your comments have really helped me "see" my photos differently. Game changer! I'm so grateful!"
More extensive online assistance is available to pet photographers worldwide who are keen to improve their shooting and editing skills under the helpful guidance of an experienced mentor.
Editing techniques can be easily demonstrated online through online video conferencing and screen sharing, with a video recording of sessions provided that can be watched and re-watched in high quality after the live session.
We can also just sit and chat about your current challenges, troubleshooting any issues you may be having with shooting or editing. We can even mix and match some live editing with some constructive critiques of your images. Online mentoring sessions can be completely customised to suit you.
These sessions can be booked on a one-off basis, or a more extensive mentoring program can be arranged - for example a 6 month program with monthly live calls.
Prices start at $250/hr (that's in Australian Dollars) for a one-off, hour-long session.
Custom mentoring programs can be quoted on request - for example - a six month program with monthly hour-long video chats is $1350 AUD.
Please note: Topics related to running a pet photography business (pricing, sales, marketing etc) are not covered by this mentoring experience. For the business of pet photography, I highly recommend my good friend and pet photography business educator, Nicole Begley from Hair of the Dog.
"Seeing Charlotte in action and her amazing editing tips made the most out of my mentoring sessions. The skills I learned have made me more confident to move directly in to the high end market. If you have some money to invest in your business, don't buy a new lens, it won't make you a better photographer - but priceless lessons from Charlotte will! "
Here's a few things to keep in mind before booking your online mentoring experience.
I can't wait to hear from you!
