Description

In the enterprise of operating your creative business, it can be difficult to set aside the time to seek out professional development resources and opportunities for yourself. But finding time to invest in your craft is essential to the growth and longer-term success and enjoyment of your work. New York Times food photographer Andrew Scrivani has designed his photography mentorship program to provide a structured, efficient, and highly personalized experience for photographers who are ready to see tangible growth in their work product and business. 


In this mentorship program, you’ll spend 3 months evaluating your photography business to identify opportunities for growth and improvement with the support of a true expert in the field. The program includes a variety of different types of engagement opportunities with Andrew, both in small groups and in personalized feedback sessions. The program is limited to 10 participants and includes the following: 


  • Bi-weekly instructional workshops where Andrew will teach a live class on an aspect of the craft or business of photography. 
  • 6 total instruction sessions, 90 minutes each (9 hours total)
  • Bi-weekly office hours sessions designed for open discussion on your specific projects and focus areas. Attend these sessions to get feedback on your work or to ask Andrew questions. For each office hours session, you’ll have the option to reserve a private time-block or join small groups.  
  • 6 total office hours sessions, 90 minutes each (9 hours total)
  • Monthly group crit sessions with all participants. Learning accelerates in small groups, and these sessions are designed to provide rich feedback and discussion within the small group of participants. 
  • 3 total crit sessions, 120 minutes each (6 hours total)

 

In total, participants will have access to over 24 hours of live mentorship time with Andrew, in addition to a private Slack community with Andrew and all mentorship participants.  

 

This mentorship program is ideal for photographers seeking to monetize their work and working professionals looking to scale their businesses up to include bigger clients and multiple income streams. It is designed to address all aspects of the photography business from creative development, improving business acumen, client negotiations, seeking and acquiring representation, and developing strategies to broaden client access and successfully navigate social media. 


The program will focus on individualized project work connected to the bi-weekly lecture themes. Some of those themes will be focused on creative challenges and others on business development. Andrew will customize projects to reflect the needs of each individual mentee. Every participant will come away with valuable, actionable insights aimed at furthering the goals each individual sets for themselves at the onset of the program. Photography is a craft, an art form, and a business, and we will focus on improving all 3 aspects of this profession in this program.
