Whether you’re just trying to learn photography as a side hustle hobby or if you’re really serious about turning it into a full time career (aka: best job in the WORLD)… receiving a one-on-one mentorship from a photog whose work you really admire/trust will help you grow further & faster than you could on your own. The ability to ask specific questions and receive answers to questions you didn’t even know to ask yet… will save you countless hours of researching Google or watching YouTube videos (trust me lol)!!
I’m Toni G and i’ve been a full time wedding photographer since the summer of 2018! From the very beginning, i’ve been superrrr passionate about helping others grow their own creative photog talents :))) As soon as I decided to become a photog I knew that I didn’t want to do it alone…. So I created the Fresno Photogs (a community group that before covid, used to meet once a month to go over specific industry related topics/ connect with each other) + I honestly already feel like a mentor figure to soo so many of you guys who come to my meetings + ask me questions through DMs!
It’s been important to me that I always strive to be someone who is here to help & support upcoming photogs :))) BUT in order for me to give the besttttt possible info & undivided attention to you guys…. I’m now finally offering VIRTUAL MENTORSHIPS!! :))) Def just little more personal & intentional & a customized experience for each individual photog!! :)))
Unfortunately, after covid, we allll kinda got out of the habit of meeting once per month & we're no longer meeting up on a regular schedule!! :((( I feel like soo many of the photogs who used to come are all now soo so busy with their own businesses so it's allll for the best!! :)))
But we do still have meet ups occasionally!! Which are always announced over on our insta!!
Even though we're not currently meeting up, we do still stay active in our Facebook group!! This is where you can get connected to local photog friends, post when you need a second shooter (or find second shooter jobs to pick up!!), & post or read the discussions with lots of questions answered!!
