A Bespoke Guided Experience
Do you love photography?
Do you want to take your passion to the next level?
Do you feel stuck or uninspired by your current work?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you are ready for a mentor and personal photographic guide.
A mentor is not just a teacher or a coach. A mentor is a friend who walks with you on your photographic journey, listens to your story, understands your vision, challenges you to grow, and celebrates your achievements.
I am Tony, and I would love to be your mentor and guide. I have been a photographer for over 40 years, and I have a deep connection with the natural and spiritual world. I live in Fiordland, one of the most beautiful and diverse places on Earth, where I can show you the wonders of nature and the secrets of light.
If you are interested in working with me, here is what you can expect:
- A personal review of your portfolio. You send me 20 images that represent your best work and your style. I will study them and give you honest and constructive feedback.
- A video call to get to know each other. We will chat about your background, your goals, your challenges, and your dreams. I want to hear your story and understand your vision.
- A visit to Fiordland. You will come to my home in Te Anau and spend a few days with me. We will explore the stunning landscapes, wildlife, and culture of Fiordland. We will photograph together, share our insights, and learn from each other. I will also offer you tips and tricks on technique, composition, and post-processing. If you want, we can also arrange a helicopter ride to some of the most remote and spectacular locations in Fiordland, where you will see things that few people have ever seen.
- A follow-up session to review your progress. We will look at the images you created during your visit and discuss how you can improve them. We will also talk about your next steps and how you can continue your journey.
This is a unique opportunity to learn from an experienced and passionate photographer, to immerse yourself in a magical environment, and to discover your true potential as an artist.
If this sounds like something you would enjoy, please contact me today. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you.
Don’t just take my word for it. Here are some testimonials from my previous mentorees:
“Tony was more than a mentor to me. He was a friend, a guide, and an inspiration. He helped me find my voice and my vision, and he encouraged me to express myself through my photography. He also showed me the beauty and the spirit of Fiordland, which changed my perspective on life. I am so grateful for his mentorship and his friendship.”
“Working with Tony was a life-changing experience for me. He taught me not only how to take better photos but also how to see the world in a different way. He shared his wisdom and his culture with me, and he opened my eyes to the wonders of nature. He was patient, supportive, and generous. I learned so much from him, and I had so much fun with him. I highly recommend him as a mentor.”
