Mentoring Session Auction Starts Today!
Thirst Relief International is a charity that provides clean drinking water to those in need around the world. Matt and I are passionate about this cause as well as our efforts to help our fellow photographers achieve their business and personal goals. So we are excited to join more than 50 world-renowned photographers in offering mentoring sessions to other photographers in March, to benefit Thirst Relief International. Most sessions will take place at this year's WPPI Convention in Las Vegas March 17-19, but one need not be at WPPI in order to participate: our session can also take place over the telephone, email, or in the Boston area. All proceeds from the auction will go directly to Thirst Relief International.
In addition to the 90 minute session in March, we will provide a website/portfolio review, a follow-up mentoring session to check on your progress towards your goals, and a complete set of our own studio promotional materials.
The auction goes live at 10 a.m., and ends on February 12. You will have to register in order to participate in the bidding. Click here to register. This auction differs from some other types of online auctions in that if there is a bidding war, the auction will continue until bidding ends.
Matt and I love one-on-one mentoring and portfolio critiquing, but we don't have a lot of time to offer this kind of mentoring very often. So we're very excited to participate in this auction and give one person/studio a lot of time and attention. We will tailor your mentoring sessions to your needs and requests. The topics that we are most passionate about helping other photographers with are branding, relationship marketing, self-worth and pricing, and following your heart.
