Mentoring for Photographers
I never thought I would find anything I enjoyed more than being behind the camera, capturing real life and true beauty. That all changed when I began mentoring and training other photographers. Now I find my greatest joy in helping photographers of all ages and skill levels grow in their craft and confidence.
I created the growtographer™ program because I wanted to offer photographers of all ages and skills a myriad of options for growth, including hands-on and online mentoring sessions, workflow and business consulting, portfolio and web site critique, and growshops™ where photographers experience a day of one-on-one instruction, or can learn together in a small group setting.
My newest mentoring project is offering eBooks! My first eBook “The Lazy Photographer’s Guide to Workflow” is available now!

"You really are a bright spot in my life. Your praise, encouragement and constructive suggestions mean so much to me. Thank you for raising me up. You make me feel good about myself. Without your investment of time and faith in me I would never have gotten to this point. So I must once again thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your help and faith in me. Now I have an idea of where I am headed with my photography and am happy to finally have a clear direction in mind."
"Learning from you has been an incredible experience for me. My eye to see things has changed almost overnight. Your instruction and constructive critiques have quickly brought me to a new level of photography skill that would have taken me years to get to otherwise."
"One of the things I love about photography is that the art of apprenticeship is alive and well in this field, that, in my opinion it is the BEST way to learn a craft. I am so beyond grateful for my mentor who is not only a brilliant photographer but a truly beautiful person, I have learned SO MUCH from her & will always be thankful to God to have her in my life. Everybody needs a mentor in order to learn and grow. I am honored, Shelley, to have you as mine."
"Thank you for being a wonderful mentor. I think back to what I was doing before I started my mentoring sessions and I can't even imagine how I would have ever gotten to the point that I have gotten to without you. Not only do you have the gift of being an amazing photographer, but a talented teacher. I always look forward to our sessions together and can't wait to learn even more from you."
"When one of my 'post-mentoring' images play on a slideshow, it’s like 'Whoa, where’d that one come from?' Total makeover. Thank you!"
