“I believe that creativity is within all of us, and when we connect to it, we connect to our true self”
My drive and commitment to living a creative life have inspired me to share this drive with others as a Creative Mentor. I mentor adults in the creative development of photography projects and camera & 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, hit me up, and let’s discuss how I can make you feel more confident in your image-making skills.
NETWORKING FOR NICE LADIES
Are you looking to connect with other people in business but don’t like the networking events you’ve tried in the past? Well, The Ladies in Business Lunch is made up of wonderful, passionate businesswomen in Canberra. This group is designed for women who run a small business to connect and be inspired by like-minded boss ladies following their passion. No matter what stage you are in your business this group will welcome you. We meet every 2 months over a casual lunch to share ideas and stories and hang out while getting to know one another in a supportive and non-intimidating environment.
Do you get sick of having to travel to Sydney or Melbourne for all the cool business events? I do. Which is why I was so pumped when Bec McFarland of Pop Your Business announced that she would be hosting the Pop Your Business Conference here in Canberra! And not just anywhere – at the Ovolo Nishi Hotel! Bec has organised the most awesome speakers from around the country to come here to the Nation’s Capital, just for us. There’s amazing business content, delicious food, an evening networking event and no doubt loads of amazing surprises. Let’s get behind the Pop Your Business Conference and bring more excitement to the Canberra business scene. Find out more and get your ticket at THIS LINK. You can even sign up for a payment plan if you want some extra time to pay off your ticket. Will I see you there?
I offer personalised 1:1 mentoring sessions that are tailored to your photography and creative needs. Whether you are a beginner and wish to learn the basics of photography, 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.
Theory classes are conducted at the National Library and practical classes we decide on a location that suits you. Sessions are $285pp for 1.5 hours and include class time and post class image critiques.
You get to control how many sessions you need. I have had some students that stay for a whole year and some that just come to learn one specific technique that can’t learn anywhere else.
Let’s have a chat about what direction you’re looking to take your creativity.
After we discuss your imaging needs in your business, we create a shotlist that gives us an idea of the types of images we need to create to fulfill your brand vision on the day of the shoot. I will direct you on how to stand and what to do in the photos so you won’t be left feeling awkward in front of the camera.
The usual turnaround to receive your private online image gallery from your shoot is around 5 days. The best images from the shoot will be narrowed down by Grace so making your selection is much easier and faster for you. After you have selected your favourite images then the retouched files will be sent within 3 days.
We select a location that suits your brand. If you work out of an office, we can shoot there, otherwise, we shoot outdoors in an urban or natural setting, depending on the look you are after.
With every shoot, I ensure you are happy at the time. I will share previews of the shots from the back of my camera to give you confidence that what we are creating is to your taste.
