Mentorship Course - part time (one year) 

We offer photographic mentorship aimed at those who wish to get individual one on one feedback sessions concerning their work. This can help with creating a coherent body of work through developing a personal photographic voice and approach. Mentoring sessions will introduce you to photographers, artists, history and the discourse of photography, which will enable you to reflect on your own practice and situate it in a broader social, cultural and historical context. In a nurturing environment, under the guidance of practicing art photographers and professionals, you will be encouraged to explore your creativity, seek inspiration, gain technical camera skill, enhance your retouching skills and think critically about photography in order to produce compelling work that expresses your vision of the world.

We have part time Mentorship Courses available. please look at courses for more details.

Cost per session with a mentor: R550 per hour

 Mentorship will take place through a series of regular appointments ( online, via Zoom ) where we discuss project process and development, research and assignment feedback, as well as photographic practice and technique.

By the end of this course you should have a focused, cohesive body of work, with a clear and coherent practitioners statement.
