Course content

  • Personalized to the goals you have or monthly assignments/themes can be issued
  • Guidance notes, examples and tips
  • Feedback
  • Q&A session, during which you can ask me literally anything: marketing, branding, pricing, website, social media, business, editing… you name it!

Equipment necessary

  • Camera, any kind, mobile phone, film, DSLR, point and shoot
  • Computer
  • Internet connection

This process is organized as follows:

  • A monthly date and time will be scheduled for a One-Hour Session
  • Choose 3-5 images for review each month.
  • Share your images in a private group.

Your images remain private and are only seen by your mentor unless you’re in a group mentorship, then they will be shared with the group. Lauri will discuss and go over your images with you, answer any questions you have and offer constructive feedback. Advice-based feedback is designed to help you learn and improve, enhance your confidence and realize your potential.

Mentorees will also gain access to my private community!

There are weekly motivations, inspirations & celebrations.
