Whether you’re trying to figure out all the menu functions on your new camera, or if you’re trying to find a way to work up to the next level in your photography, I can get you there.

With more than a decade teaching photojournalism and various workshops, I’ll walk you through the basics and provide you with information and hands-on training so you’ll know what all those settings mean, how to best apply them depending on what you’re photographing, and you’ll find confidence when behind the camera.

If you have a good handle on the basics, but it isn’t quite clicking on the creative side, I provide classes allowing you to look for those artistic elements to work into your images and ways to get those creative juices flowing.

The next step in your photography is to understand how to put the finishing touches on your images with Photoshop, Lightroom or other photo editing applications. I offer an introduction into knowing the three basic areas you need to focus on when editing your images and a few other areas of more advanced editing.

Classes are done in two 2-hour sessions which are limited to six students or provided in a one-on-one setting.

“I had the privilege of mentoring with Jerome from 2014-2017. In that time, he taught me a considerable deal on client communications, networking, management, finances, archiving, editing, marketing, sales, outsourcing and gear recommendations. His organized, detailed, generous and approachable way of doing business and mentoring photographers is backed by his years of experience.
What I valued most in those 3 years was his willingness to help in any way that he could. If ever I had a question, even if not during one of our scheduled meetings, he was prompt and precise with an answer. He’s also the perfect person to bounce ideas off!
Without question, Jerome is highly recommended not only for a portrait or wedding session but as a mentor in the business of photography.”

Starting a photography business is difficult.

First off, there are so many of us out there. And with so much competition, how do you set yourself apart? The best way to set yourself apart is by being in business longer than three years.

A lot of photography business owners find themselves going under after struggling for three years because they don’t have a solid foundation of knowledge and insight when they begin to build their business. Knowing about market research, setting expectations, client fulfillment, workflows, pricing, marketing, time management, the cost of doing business and a ton of other issues can be extremely overwhelming.

Over the past three years, I’ve assisted photographers in navigating these issues to put them on the right path to business success.

I’m not promising you’ll book 200 portraits or 50 weddings. I’m not saying you’ll be rich if you invest in my mentoring program. That would be totally irresponsible and if you read that anywhere else, I would approach with extreme caution.

What I am promising is that you’ll have a solid base of knowledge into what it takes to run a successful photography business. You won’t be making the mistakes I did that cause you to stay up at night and wonder if you’re doing the right thing. And most importantly, you’ll have the insight to navigate through those tough business decisions knowing how it could potentially affect your business because you understand all aspects of your business.

My mentoring sessions are either two-hour long discussions focused on the most pressing issues you’re facing in your business. This can be pricing, workflow, understanding your cost of doing business, communication, etc.

I also offer two-day boot camp where we’ll dive into every aspect of your business, I’ll supply you curriculum that’ll help guide you along the way, and we’ll keep in contact over the year to help answer questions and provide direction that will best suit your business.

Again, these sessions will not guarantee you so many leads or bookings. This is directly aimed at photographers who are ready to get their business on the right track so they can be profitable and sustainable.
