Are you a hands-on learner? Maybe custom in-person mentoring is more your style. Whether you’re already a hobbyist, want to learn how to edit, or have no experience at all and want to learn how to use your camera, gather a small group of friends or do it all by yourself, and let Nancy plan the day (or weekend) just for you. Ask me anything, photography, editing, or anything business related. I’ll set up a shoot and we can shoot together, then edit side-by-side. If you’re visiting or live in the metro-Phx area, you can even provide the models! Contact Nancy for more details.
