Online Mentoring

“A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself.” — Oprah Winfrey

Online Mentoring

Are you feeling stuck in your photography journey? Do you want to learn from someone who can guide you and inspire you? Do you want to take your photography to the next level?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you are ready for personal photographic mentoring.

Personal photographic mentoring is more than just a portfolio review. It is a long-term relationship with a mentor who has a deep experience and knowledge of the medium. A mentor who can help you see your work in a broader context, who can help you develop your technical skills and artistic vision, who can help you find your niche and your voice.

That’s where I come in.

I am a professional photographer, photographic artist, and photo educator with over 40 years of experience in all forms of photography. I have a passion for sharing my knowledge and giving back to other photographers on their individual journeys. I have a rich understanding of the history and evolution of photography, and I can help you learn from the masters and find your own style. Ways in which I can help you include:

I can help you with technical issues and help you see areas that need development.

  • I can help you with design and composition and how you can make new choices and develop your seeing.
  • I will show you your work in a broader context and how it fits particular genres.
  • I will suggest areas of study and research for you to follow, including learning from the Masters, what inspired them, and offering suggestions about their way of doing things and how you can incorporate that into your work.

I offer one-on-one online mentoring using Microsoft Teams. We can work together from anywhere in the world, at your own pace and convenience. We can meet regularly for 60-90 minutes, and I will record each session so you can review it later. I will also give you assignments, feedback, and suggestions for further study and research.

The first session is free, so we can see if we are a good fit. After that, you can choose from different packages and plans that suit your needs and goals.

If you are interested, please reach out to me and let’s start this journey together. I promise you, it will be rewarding and fun.


My mentoring fee. $NZ 200/hour. 

Online mentoring is limited to a maximum of 6 students at any one time

Being mentored by Tony Bridge has been transformative for my photography journey. His holistic approach goes beyond teaching technicalities; it encompasses the entire creative process, from capturing the perfect shot to meticulous post-production edits.

Tony’s mentorship is a masterclass in the art and science of photography, serving as a catalyst for my personal and artistic growth. His insights and constructive feedback have refined my skills, expanding my photographic horizons. With Tony’s knowledge and encouragement, I’ve ventured into new territories, capturing moments once deemed beyond reach.

I recommend Tony as a mentor – not just for his knowledge but also because he is genuinely invested in your growth as a photographer.

Working with Tony has been the most inspiring and enlightening experience and has enriched my photography career immensely. His knowledge and experience of photography have made me look far further than I would have ever imagined for inspiration.

Thanks to Tony’s guidance I am on my way to publishing my first book, knowing that the images to be included are truly representative of the story I want to tell. I am on the other side of the world from Tony in The Netherlands – distance was no barrier, maybe one day we will be lucky enough to meet in person.

Having coached athletes for half my life, I can be hard to coach. “Feedback is the breakfast of champions” is a mantra I hold close.

A year ago, I attended a street seminar with Tony. He demonstrated his knowledge of the history, influences and techniques of that style. After that taste, I started one-on-one sessions. There I got honesty. With knowledge and wisdom. He inspired me to think, to act and to create better pictures than when I was alone.

That is what mentorship is, together better.

Thank you, Tony.
