BlueHour is proud to introduce our latest educational offering: A complete mentorship program for aspiring nature and outdoor photographers. Whether you’re looking to take your photography to the highest level in as little time as possible, or even make the leap to monetizing your images at a professional level through retail sales and licensing, this immersive program will get you there. Our combination of intensive in-person guided instruction at outdoor locations around New England and flexible online learning at your own pace will give you the image-making and career skills you need to make your photography dreams a reality.
What You Get
Private Webinars & Learning Materials
All of our learning materials have been personally developed and curated by us after years of teaching all types of photography. You will receive access to webinars and a physical, bound copy of over 20 instructional documents that outline various photographic techniques. We will work through these documents with you.
3 Full Days of 1-On-1 Mentorship In the field (New England)
This is the heart of our program. You will have the option to choose from a list of structured days that best fit your interests and goals. You may choose to spend all three days shooting alongside us during various conditions and locations, such as the North or South shores of Boston, the White Mountains, Nubble Lighthouse, and more (all in New England), or you may opt to learn about matting and framing your work, post-processing, how to set up an art show booth, or you may want to mix and match. Whichever days you choose, you will learn the tricks of the trade.
Mentee Shared Online Storage
We will create an online cloud-sharing space for us to collaborate and share images.
If you’re going to become a serious photographer, you’ll need to have a quality, professional headshot for your website.
