“My goal for the Mentorship Program is to provide a platform that allows students to identify their creative and business strengths and to build an achievable plan that will lead to a profitable career in the creation and distribution of stock imagery. The focus of the mentorship will be intensive work on image construction, editing, portfolio creation, distribution channels, and business plan development.”
