with Paul Zizka
It’s no secret that photography can be a tough business to crack into. Even if you manage to eventually monetize, how do you stay creative throughout the journey? I’ve been a full-time photographer for over 10 years now. It’s a delicate dance, and I couldn’t have done it without the people who believed in my work and encouraged me along the way.
This is something I would like to be able to provide to others.
With that, I’m announcing a fourth year of the Mentorship Program with Paul Zizka Photography. There is no money exchanged with this experience – just pure hands-on teaching and learning. The mentorship is ideal for someone looking to make the leap towards full-time, professional photography, and who wants a window into what it takes.
The program will be customized for the chosen candidate based on his or her skills, interests, and areas for improvement. Here are examples of the opportunities that may be possible during the Mentorship Program (depending on the location of the mentee, and on Paul’s availability).
Opportunities may include:
- one-on-one time to chat about the business of photography or get feedback on a selection of images; a direct line to Paul for any questions about the business of photography
- a direct line to Paul for any questions about the business of photography-hands-on experience “in the field” on some workshops and corporate shoots
- hands-on experience “in the field” on some workshops and corporate shoots-time shadowing Paul while out shooting and in the editing room
- time shadowing Paul while out shooting and in the editing room
→ The Mentorship Program will run August 1, 2019, through August 1, 2020, with the possibility of renewal thereafter.
→ Candidate can be located anywhere (though please note that this could have an impact on any in-person opportunities)
→ Hours will range widely depending on availability, location, etc.
→ To apply, please fill out the form and submit your answers no later than 11:59pm MT on July 1, 2019.
→ Only successful candidates will be contacted for an interview.
I’m looking forward to seeing your application!
