Online Mentoring (Craig)

Wherever you are in the world, we can connect via Zoom for a face-to-face chat! This online chat goes for one hour. If you need extra time after your initial session, you're welcome to book additional sessions.

During our chat, we can cover image critiques, portfolio/style reviews, session reviews and all creative (shooting and editing) aspects of pet photography.

Topics can range from talking through camera setup and discussing shooting issues, to editing demos and image critiques.

The only topics that are off-limits are anything business related, so we won't be covering pricing, sales or marketing.

Please read the Terms and Conditions on the right for full details about your mentoring session. You'll also receive this information via email once the session has been booked, along with instructions for preparing your images.

If you'd like to ask us a question before booking, please get in touch.

What they're saying:

It's been years since I've been able to talk about my dog Cooper. I owe it to you because you had me dig deep, go back to the times there was light in that poetic fire of mine. YOU gave me the courage to put yourself out there. I can't thank you enough.

Cris Skinner, USA

I count myself lucky to have found Craig right at the beginning of my pet photography journey. First I attended one of his workshops, followed by some one-to-one mentoring. I cannot recommend him highly enough as an educator and mentor. He's so open about charing his secrets to success and extensive knowledge of pet photography.
