In a rut? Find your mojo and direction with a tailored one-to-one session over Zoom

Are you looking for more direction as a street photographer? About to embark on a project and need some expert input? Need some constructive input into your work? Have you hit a creative brick wall? Do you need help finding your ‘voice’? Or maybe you need support in bringing your work to life via books, exhibitions and social media. Whatever the scenario, you can use this online Portfolio Review with Brian Lloyd Duckett to get you back on course.
 
Structured around 3 core elements, this online skills development session, held online over Zoom,  is designed to give you an opportunity for frank and constructive analysis of your work while helping you to develop in any areas that might be holding you back. If you want to take that next step and would value some constructive feedback, this session is a must. The Portfolio Review costs £85.

How it works

 

1/  Preparatory work

Once you have signed-up for the session, we’ll send you a questionnaire, the responses to which will help inform the content of our discussion; this is all about discovering about you and your objectives – where you are now and where you want to get to. We with then arrange an ‘online meeting’ at a time which suits us both – usually within 7 days. You will also need to send us 6 images which reflect ‘where you are now’. This preparatory stage will give you the opportunity to really think about your own work, whilst giving us plenty of material to explore in our discussion.

 

2/  The online consultation

Our session will last for around 1 hour, scheduled at a time to suit us both. Our meeting will be conducted using Zoom (don’t worry if you haven’t used it before – it’s very easy and we’ll send you instructions). How you use our time together is up to you – though the responses to the preparatory questions will almost certainly flag up some key areas for discussion. During our meeting we will cover areas such as:
  • A critique of your images, with frank and constructive feedback
  • Explore your aspirations as a street photographer
  • Discuss the things which hold you back (perceived and actual)
  • Expert help and guidance with any current or proposed projects
  • We will finish the meeting with a Q&A session covering any questions you may have

3/  Your action plan

During the week following our call, we will prepare notes which form a summary of our discussion, which will include a developmental action plan for you to put into practice. We may recommend any combination of exercises, assignments, reading suggestions, research or project work.

 

How to book

The review costs £85. Simply click below to book your session. You can pay via credit/debit card, PayPal or bank transfer. We will then get back to you with your questionnaire for completion and a choice of slots for our meeting.
