"I believe that creativity is within all of us, and when we connect to it, we connect to our true self"

I'm here to help you grow and develop into the photographer you dream of becoming

I mentor mid-career photographers in the creative development of personal projects, shooting, posing, and editing skills.

I recently hosted a Portrait masterclass at the National Portrait Gallery as well as The Refocus Retreat, sponsored by Nikon.  

I host private tuition and public group classes in Canberra and Melbourne so if there is a knowledge gap you need to fill, let’s book a no-obligation “discovery call” and discuss how I can make you feel more confident in your image and storytelling skills. 


I offer personalised 1:1 mentoring sessions that are tailored to your photography and creative needs.

I help mid-career photographers grow and develop their skill toolbox and creative thinking. If would like guidance on starting creative projects, or if you have a niche you are passionate about and would like to dive deeper into your skills, I’m here to help you. 

I cover topics such as: 

Posing skills, Photo editing workflow, Personal project development, Creative thinking, Selling artwork and more. 

We start with a Discovery call to pull out what your main concerns are and how I can help you through them. Then you can book either 3 or 6-session packages where we will work together 1:1 to customize the learning specific to your needs and outcomes. 

Let’s have a chat about what direction you’re looking to take your photography journey.

Portfolio Review - $120 (Introductory offer ends 2023)

I believe the key to becoming a strong photographer, who consistently produces great results in any situation, is to have a mentor. Someone to objectively guide, critique and offer constructive feedback to help you reach the next level in your photography practise. Having your work critiqued is one of the best ways to build confidence and get clear direction on areas to be improved. That's why I created my private Portfolio Review sessions, it's a safe space, where you and me work together to understand your style, your technique, the mistakes that you are making and discuss ways to develop your skills in a more considered way. You don't need to be brave to seek out learning, you just need to want to be better than you were yesterday. I believe in self development so if you do to, send me an enquiry and we can discuss your portfolio book you in for your private session over on Zoom, or in person if you are Canberra based.
*Please note all mentoring sessions are targeting at mid-career photographers earning an income from photography
