Mandy Leonards Photography  offers both in person and online mentoring to other photographers.

We offer 1:1 in person mentoring for natural light family, child photography and couples photography. We structure mentoring sessions to focus on what you are looking for. Some typical subjects are back lighting, interacting/engaging families and children, editing/workflow and working with light. Portfolio critique is included in all mentoring sessions. Newborn and studio photography mentoring is not available, but we are happy to refer you to those who do offer this type of mentoring if that is what you are looking for. Full day mentoring sessions will include 2 sessions in different lighting conditions for you to watch and learn, as well as shoot images yourself and receive feedback. You will be able to use the images in your portfolio. 1:1 mentoring sessions are offered in both half and full day increments. Half-day mentoring starts at $550, full-day mentoring starts at $800.
