Newborn Nerds mentoring is taught by Amy Guenther and Lindsey Stock. The class is focused on newborn posing in a studio light setting. We can provide a flash trigger if you don’t have one. We go through our full posing workflow, answering questions along the way. You will have the opportunity to take photos of each setup. We also cover post-processing at our 2 day workshops only.

– full day mentoring session with 1-2 models
– lunch
– feedback on shots taken during session

A $500 retainer fee is required at the time of booking to hold your spot. Remaining balance is due no later than 2 weeks before session.

Mentees should own a DSLR, have an understanding of shooting in manual mode, and bring a lens with a focal length of 35mm or 50mm (zooms are fine).
