Private Mentoring

Lee Varis 2014

Mentorships with Lee Varis for the Emerging Photographer/Retoucher

In a competitive market, commercial  photographers and retouchers must possess the information that is essential to setting up and growing their business as well as
a comprehensive knowledge of creative techniques. If
you are looking to make a full or part-time transition to photography and/or retouching, or if you’re just getting into the business, my mentoring program will provide you with the skills needed for digital photography, post processing, and retouching, along with the practical
understanding of sound business practices.
Use my experience to your benefit!
I take my mentoring relationships seriously, focusing on your particular needs
including: your identity/logo and marketing collateral materials, creating a
great website, developing a solid business and marketing plan, understanding
job pricing, copyrights, and client negotiations. Together, we will cover all the
business basics: setting up bank accounts, bookkeeping, accounting, insurance,
advertising, equipment needs, and more.

I will custom make a program to suit your needs. It can take shape as individual sessions, a series of five or ten, or a full year unlimited access.

Please contact me for more information about private, in-person mentoring.

I am also available for one-on-one, live video, online tutoring through Google Helpouts so you can access my expertise from anywhere through your computer. This is especially useful for computer & software training, as we can share out screens, and I can actually use your computer to show you how to do things in Photoshop, Bridge, and Lightroom.
