Our Project helping small business owners and photographers GROW around the world with FREE mentoring + crazy affordable resources.

Okay, so you’re on this page going, “Um okay it’s free? Or…. Do I want to take something free?”

Welcome to the freaking MENTORING PROJECT! I will be reaching as many souls a possible to mentor, mentor, mentor! Everyone is welcome, but please read below to make sure we’re a good fit.

The MENTOR PROJECT is set to help:

-Photographers who are just starting their business and are 100% set to DO and NOT just dream (This is extremely important, as I’ve found many people say they want help but do nothing with it)
-Grateful photographers excited to learn!**
-Experienced photographers who want to GROW
-Photographers who want to quit their full-time jobs
-Unlimited FREE small group sessions per month!

What to Bring:

-Your spongey mind
-A list of questions to ask me or topics to submit upon signing up for a small group meeting

Again, these sessions are FREE. They’re freaking free dude. Donations are very appreciated to cover costs, but not required.

Small group mentor sessions are helpful and recommended for photographers who are just starting out in the field or getting ready to launch their business. With my 1-hour mentor sessions, the topic possibilities are endless. Ask me anything you’d like about my editing, marketing, website setup, etc. These are for small groups of no more than 7 participants so we can still answer questions 1:1.

These sessions are great for both amateurs and professionals who want to take the next step in their business. Anyone who is curious about my business methods is encouraged to take this to learn more about the photography business.

As a specialist in business itself and a CEO at just age 22, this session will allow you to fully explore your questions. No more waiting on courses to give you information or buying a course not knowing what information you will receive.

You ask, you receive.

To schedule a session, please fill out the form below.

No-Shows are not tolerated. Please fill out the form with your best answers so I know you’re PUMPED to do this!!! Note that due to the large number of schedulings, not all sessions will be available. However, the most popular sessions will replay at least once per month.


We have partnered up with Creative Agency, Pheonix & Company (yes, this is spelled right), to offer you super affordable resources for growing your business. These products and prices were designed by Pheonix so that will not find any resources this affordable and this quality anywhere else. These packages were made just for our project!
