Mentorship and Development Programs

Our mentorship and development programs described below are designed for participants who are committed, driven and wish to be challenged to achieve their creative or business goals.

Spaces in our mentorship and development programs are strictly limited and they normally sell out in advance. All our mentors are also available for private mentorship to assist you in achieving your desired outcomes. We use specialised photographers to teach a variety of photographic disciplines. We are uniquely placed to provide access to mentors and teachers who are leaders in their respective fields.

We also offer tailor-made programs to achieve your desired outcomes and goals which can be delivered from our space, or at your business. Our mentors are available for either face-to-face or online mentorship within Australia or internationally.
