MENTORING + INTERNSHIPS
Everyone needs a mentor. Whether you’re just beginning and need someone to light the spark or if you’re a seasoned photographer and need to stay inspired, photography is a constant area of growth and I’ve learned that the best way to do so is from other creatives in the field. The level of support and guidance I gain from my current mentors acts as a constant source of inspiration for my work, and that is what I hope to provide for you.
If you’re a beginner, topics can include anything from the photography basics (shooting in manual mode and mastering the exposure triangle), to using your DSLR camera, posing, composition, and basic editing techniques. If you already know the basics and you’re looking for some extra guidance and support, topics can include workflow and post production, business + financial matters, client interaction, storytelling, developing your own style and posing.
I am also available for a Portfolio Review where we’ll take a look at your work together and discuss image selection and your ideal client. (I suggest this session to all of my mentees.)
Lauren Louise Photography offers summer internships for those interested in pursuing a career in wedding + editorial photography. Interns will meet with Lauren on a weekly basis to take part in sessions that can cover topics from finding your ideal client and portfolio building to using Lightroom and Photoshop. These sessions are what I would cover in a mentoring session and can be tailored in order to help you grow as a photographer. Interns will also participate in a live shoot where we'll go over equipment usage, posing and composition, and assist Lauren on any weddings or shoots during his/her internship. Interns will be responsible for writing blog posts, keeping the website up-to-date, sending images for publication, archiving images, exporting photoshoots, editing, etc. Internships are offered during the summer, from June until August. Please fill out an application to apply! Those who are not accepted will receive a discounted mentoring session with Lauren.
