Are you ready to take your photography to the next level? Are you building a Click Pro set or another portfolio and need help finalizing your set?
There are so many different ways to build a portfolio and often our mind starts playing tricks on us and we begin second guessing ourselves. I was there when I went through the process and had all of those very feelings when I was building my Click Pro set. Portfolio building can become overwhelming and isolating. Figuring out what makes sense for you is hard, especially when you feel like you don't have anyone to talk to. I get that!
The process is designed to make better photographers out of us. The process is hard but 100% worth the effort and time.
I encourage every photographer to build a portfolio, even if you start out small with 10 images. Through building your set, your voice will unfold through the process.
I offer one-on-one support while you build your set. Each and every image needs to be reviewed on an individual basis and the entire set needs to flow as a whole. I offer guidance, support, feedback and constructive criticism.
You need not be a professional photographer to build a portfolio. If you have a passion for photography combined with a desire to learn and improve your work, building a portfolio is a great idea.
For Click Pro sets, I offer a 3-step mentorship approach that includes an initial review, second review and final review with customized feedback at each step. In between reviews, I will work with you, I'm here to answer your questions and direct you on the suggested changes before moving through to the next step. This process will be thorough and challenging because that is what it takes to meet the Click Pro rubric. You can totally do this and I would love to walk along side you as you take this journey!

“Hollie was so generous with her time and talent as a mentor. She was extremely thorough going through every one of my images (multiple times) and helping me understand how to make them each stronger and cohesive. It got to the point where I started to preemptively notice and fix things because she taught me what to look for in my photos. She was kind and encouraging and really knew what the standards were to be accepted into Click Pro. I highly recommend her services! She will absolutely help you get to where you want to be."
