Mentorship

Get your mind out of the gutter: I’m asking if you need a mentor.

As wedding photographers, our industry is not always kind. We defend our photojournalistic process while battling the latest trend (can’t we all agree chalkboard portraits are overdone?); we struggle to break in to the right market and with the right planners while struggling to break even; we deal with daily business minutia in lieu of honing our craft.

We doubt our ability. We listen to naysayers. We procrastinate. We rest on our laurels.

Say goodbye to excuses.

Photography Mentorship with Kevin Weinstein.

If you’re looking for a shortcut to success, you’re in the wrong place. I’m not here to teach you how to be me or “insider tips” that’ll get you to the top. I’m not going to teach you how to be popular. I’m going to be supportive, but I’m not going to mince words.

I’m here to help you be YOU, develop YOUR vision, and find YOUR voice.

Eventually, when you get through the pain and struggle you’ll achieve something profound: when people see your photographs, they’ll immerse themselves in the story and know that YOU are the storyteller.

Are you ready to dig deep?

Topics

My mentorship programs, like my photography, are customized to your needs. However, my knowledge and ability to help you falls into three main categories:

Duration and location

I offer one-hour, half-day, or full-day workshop programs. Full-day workshops run from 9am to 6pm and include a one-hour lunch. Bring up to three friends and receive a group mentoring discount. Come to Chicago or have me come to you.

You can purchase a package of mentoring sessions from one month, three months, six months or 12 months to save over a la carte pricing.

Price

I don’t want to be evasive, but I want to learn a little bit about your needs. Please email me for pricing.

Why Kevin?

Honest feedback, no holds barred advice, and professional input from a guy who doesn’t know it all (but knows a lot). If you’re interested, you can read my complete biography.

Here are the highlights:

  • I’ve had my face behind a camera for 27 years, over half of that in the trenches of newspapers, magazines, and photo agencies as a photojournalist.
  • I’ve worked in the wedding industry for over 13 years.
  • I’ve won numerous awards, spoke at conferences all over the United States, and have landed celebrity clients including Mario Lopez and Courtney Mazza.

The biggie? Throughout my photography tenure, my approach to creating compelling imagery has not changed. Timeless, moment-driven images are the core of my business. I buck photographic trends and remain one of the most sought after wedding photographers in the U.S.

I’m in this for the long haul because I want to help you. I want to nurture your talent. I want you to contribute to the industry I’m so passionate about. Your skills make us all better.
