The Photography Mentoring Program

The Photography Mentoring Program

The starting point for most students interested in photography starts in the classroom. Middle school and high school photography classes teach students the fundamentals and give them access to some great resources. However, for those students that are wanting to expand their knowledge, pursue their creative ideas, explore a variety of photo development processes, gain access to a wide range of resources, including digital, film, and underwater cameras, look no further than Lorijo's Mentorship Program.

With a tailored approach to teaching, Lorijo customizes her lesson plans and teaching to each student's interests and passions.

After Lorijo has assessed the skill level and interests of her students, she begins to create custom lesson plans that teach the fundamentals, while tailoring to each student's interests within photography. Students are given the opportunity to shoot film, digital, or both. If students don't have a camera or film, no need to stress, Lorijo will provide all the necessary equipment needed to complete each lesson plan. For those interested in other photo development processes, such as tintype or cyanotype, make sure to request more information in your email to Lorijo!

Prepare to connect with your soul's deepest longing. Sometimes before the thought comes, the intuitive mind creates unique images that can guide you into that invisible part of yourself. After several prompts and a journal writing assignment, you will choose from various grass root bundles and a bucket of Japanese sumi ink and begin to draw your soul with music. Using the energy of the visual meditation and your unconscious language, you will create a finished piece on a 8ft by 4ft piece piece of rag paper. 

Please bring a journal and wear clothes that you won't mind getting ink splatters on. A single session starts at $125, sign up today!

Small, second, third, or eighth weddings sometimes need a detour from traditional wedding photography. Using analog processes such as super 8 film, Cyanotype and even tintype, I will also use a medium format film camera for that beautiful large negative and some digital capturing as well.
