Photographers! Are you looking to take your shooting skills or business know-how to the next level? We are now offering our one-on-one mentoring sessions:

Building a business is hard work, but we love what we do. We can’t imagine doing anything else. BUT having your own business is not without its challenges. We have learned some valuable lessons since we started in 2005. More than 400 weddings later, we’ve seen what worked, what didn’t, and most of all, how to continue to grow when the economy is volatile. We may not have all the answers, but we have some pretty darn good ones. :-)

We are fortunate to have grown a successful business over the years and we look forward to sharing our experiences with you! We are an open book when it comes to our work. We can talk about anything and everything you want to know!

$300 – 90-minutes. Just you and the McCardells.  You get 90 minutes of our time via Skype or in person. You ask, we answer.

$500 – 3 hours. Just you and the McCardells.  You get 3 hours of our time via Skype or in person. You ask, we answer. We’ll give you an honest critique of your website and marketing, or show you how we light a reception, whatever!

$1000 – 8 hours. Just you and the McCardells.  You get 8 hours of our time. You ask, we answer. We’ll take a look at your website and marketing, give you pointers on how to improve your portfolio. We’ll accompany you on a shoot with your models, coach you on putting your subjects in the right light and background, posing and off-camera lighting techniques, and then give you a full critique on your images. We’ll also photograph you, and you’ll get the images to use on your website!

Only a few slots per month are offered. These are for business building mainly, but we will answer anything – networking, pricing, etc. We are available on a first come, first serve basis. If you are local, we can meet in person. Otherwise, we’ll skype!
