Project Development, Pitching and Portfolios

This mentorship program focuses more on the photojournalistic aspect of photography for those who seek guidance from an award-winning, working photographer who is familiar with the current landscape of photojournalism.

As each photographer’s needs are different, I have created two different mentorship options that will be further adapted according to the needs and objectives of each mentee.

MENTORSHIP OPTION 1

Developing and Pitching Projects

Whether you are starting from the ground up or have a project that is ready for an audience, pitching is intimidating and opaque.

Micah will help you understand best practices for cold emailing and advise you on finding the right publication and editor, how to reach out to them and form outreach over various mediums in order to help your work stand out and maximize the chances editors will engage.

Come away with best practices on industry etiquette, how to follow up and an understanding of varying levels of urgency.

DURATION

2-6 Months (based on project needs and deadlines: 6 one-hour sessions)

PRICE

Members: 675€

Non-members: 750€

MENTORSHIP OPTION 2

Photojournalism Portfolio Review

Whether you are working on a single project or body of work, you will learn how to identify your strengths and weaknesses as it pertains to journalism and documentary work and how to sequence your project to maximize its visual narrative.

DURATION

Single Project: 2 one-hour sessions

Body of Work: 4 one-hour sessions

PRICE

Single Project

Members: 225€

Non-members: 240€

 

Body of Work

Members: 450€

Non-members: 500€

For both mentorship options: a personal calendar will be created for you in which you’ll be able to select the times and days that best suit you.
