Have you ever felt unsure or insecure about your photography and photo editing skills? Maybe you have all the equipment, but you don’t know how to make the most of it to create the kind of equestrian photos you dream of.
You’re in the right place. I created Wings, a 3-month online learning and small group mentorship experience for Equestrian Photographers like you. It’s the program I wish existed when I was first starting out as a photographer.
Whether you’re a professional or a passionate amateur, Wings will help you grow as a photographer with the guidance of a mentor who cares about you and your success and a community of fellow photographers cheering you on along the way.
The next Wings Mentorship starts January 2, 2023, and runs through March 27, 2023.
"I now feel 1000000x more confident!"
"I'm much more confident in my photography and business now!"
"The best investment you can make in yourself and your business."
Working with Shelley is like working along a sister who really wants to see you at your fullest potential and supports you even on the days you may not be able to support yourself."
You have questions about all sorts of equestrian photography-related topics and wish you had someone you could go to for the answers.
You love taking photos of horses but aren't as confident behind the camera as you would like to be.
You want to be able to walk into a photo session and know exactly what to do, even in less-than-ideal conditions.
You wish you knew more about how to edit and retouch your photos to make them look consistent and bring out their true beauty.
You are looking for education and mentoring from an experienced photographer you can trust and who cares about your success.
You purchased online courses but never completed them or struggled to apply what you learned.
You want personalized feedback on your images so you can create even better ones.
You want to be part of a small community of like-minded photographers who will support you and cheer you on as you learn.
You would like to sign up for Pegasus, but aren't sure your skills are up to speed yet.
"Learning from Shelley and the other members was such a huge boost for me."
Learning from Shelley and the other members was such a huge boost for me, and was a great way to build connections and create a support system. I highly, HIGHLY, recommend taking the leap and joining this mentorship."
"I have learned new skills in every aspect of the photography process!"
From posing and camera settings to editing and putting all the finishing touches together, I have learned new skills in every aspect of the photography process! I am so much more confident in my abilities!”
"I can see a huge difference."
"I don’t feel like just a number when I work with Shelley."
If you’re considering it, take the jump and invest in yourself because you won’t regret it! Now that I’ve worked with Shelley all I want to do is continue to be mentored by her! She really helps you grow and develop into the best photographer you can be!"
"Shelley is very thorough, easy to understand, and I love her positive attitude!"
"The Wings Mentorship provided more accountability than a standalone course."
The Regular Wings Mentorship is $1500
or $575/month for 3 months
🏆 NEW! The VIP Wings Mentorship is $2450
How many people do you accept into the Wings Mentorship?
I limit Wings to around 20 members yearly to keep the community small and intimate.
When will group coaching Zoom calls be?
Because many of those doing this mentorship work another job, video calls will be scheduled on Monday evenings at 7 pm Central Time.
Do I have to be an equestrian photographer?
Yes. This mentorship is for photographers whose focus is horses, specifically portraits of people with their horses.
What gear and software should I have for this mentorship?
A DSLR or Mirrorless Camera Body and a lens at least 85mm long. A 70-200 lens is recommended. For software, you should have Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.
Will you be covering business or marketing topics?
Not in this mentorship. The focus of Wings is to help photographers grow in their craft. If you are interested in growing your business and learning more advanced topics, then you would want to do the Pegasus mentorship. I still suggest you go through the Wings mentorship because Wings participants have priority for Pegasus, and there are a very limited number of spots available.
Will you run this again another time during the year?
Due to a very busy summer and fall schedule, I can only run this mentorship from January to March each year.
Are there 1:1 calls included with Wings?
Only for Members who signed up for the VIP Mentorship. However, Wings members receive 20% off 1:1 Zoom mentoring calls.
Will there be retreat with Wings?
Wings is an online-only mentorship. If you are interested in in-person learning, join the Pegasus Mentorship.
I'm not from the United States, can I do Wings?
Yes, Wings is all done online, so anyone from anywhere in the world can participate. If the calls are not at a good time for you, you can also opt to purchase the Wings content as a standalone course without the interactive aspect.
