All new. Ana Brandt no longer provides 1:1 or 2:1 mentoring. We have several types of workshops as listed below. We do realize people need a bit more direct guidance and therefore we have an Apprentice program offered on a limited basis.
Baby Clinics – four hours of intense hands on training to work on soothing, safety, wrapping, posing and angles. Photographers work in teams to achieve the above.
Masterclasses – 8 hours of maternity and newborn instruction in which Ana guides, directs and poses models while explaining settings and direction. Students take turns shooting in all sets.
Apprentice Program – For serious Photographers that want to take their work to the next level – the apprentice program is for those who really need to improve their photography skills, session workflow and business strategies with immediate direction from Ana.
Apprentices will need to complete the items outlined below followed by a completion assignment that once approved will give you a certificate of approved Apprentice training. Upon completion Apprentices will receive: TShirt- Journal – Totebag – Apprenticeship Certificate and be listed on Ana’s websites as an approved Apprentice.
Virtual – For a Virtual Apprenticeship this will require that Apprentices create 3 sessions while Ana is online via Skype or other virtual communication tool. Ana will help you outline the goals for each session BEFORE the session and be standing by to guide you in your angles/settings/direction and style. Apprentices will then have a 1:1 Skype (or other virtual communication tool) to edit the photos under Ana’s guidance. Upon critique of all 3 sessions, the Apprentice will need to provide 2 more sessions without Ana’s virtual guidance for critique and approval of the Apprenticeship completion. Only 2 Virtual Apprentice can be chosen per month and it is on a first come first service basis. The Apprentice and Ana can determine the shooting schedule, however everything must be completed within 45 days. The Apprentice and Ana will also have 1 – 2 hour Business Meeting to go over best practices for client scheduling, materials and selling.
