A few months ago during our mentorship class we had these two families come to our Saskatoon photography studio to model for us, so we could show our students how we pose families with toddles and families with older children. The younger children were BUSY, which made it for a fantastic learning opportunity for our students! Needless to say, both families did a wonderful job! The kids were adorable!
Our last mentorship class was a blast! We did a field trip and went to the U of S to show our students how we look for light, and how we look for the right place to shoot! We had Crystal of Joi Photo come to do some behind the scenes shots for us.
We are accepting applications for our 2018/2019 Class starting in August. Please let us know if you would like an application! Only 1 is accepted from Saskatoon, the rest must be at least 100km from Saskatoon.
Here are some behind the scene shots from one of our classes...
As our 2016/2017 year comes to an end (in July), I'm having some bitter sweet moments. It has been an amazing year teaching our mentorship students and I'm feeling a bit emotional as the year comes to an end. With that being said, I'm so excited for a new year to begin and the new people I can train and mould into successful photographers in their areas. Our 2017 mentorship program is half full. Our two remaining spots are for photographers at least 100km away from Saskatoon, and be passionate about photography and running a business. Here is what Brandi said about being in the class this last year:
"My favorite part of the course has been meeting others that I can bounce ideas off of and get advice from. It's also been so amazing to witness the evolution of my peers in their business ventures. Although getting pregnant and having a baby threw a bit of a wrench into my business timeline, I have started building a foundation for the future and learned things that I will build upon when I am able to jump into photography with both feet. Mandy is so knowledgeable and has been completely transparent - she has been such a great mentor and has laid out all of the failures and successes she experienced along the way. With Mandy's guidance and the support from the girls, I have become more confident in my abilities and have learned to value my work and my time!"

Our mentorship program here at our Saskatoon Photography Studio was so fun last month! We brought in two families, one with older children, and one with younger children. It was so great to show our 'students' the difference between the two families and to show them that the younger the kids are, the harder they make you work for the great shot. All of their movement and running around does make for some really great, unique images. Here are just a few of my favorite images from family #2! Huge thank you to both families for helping us out! I know it's not easy being in front of the camera, let along 4 cameras!
