Are you about to embark on a personal photographic project and looking for feedback on your edits, ideas and approach? Do you have a long-term project that you need a fresh perspective on to identify underlying themes? Are you interested in working with someone who will get to know you and help elevate your vision for your body of work?
Magnum Photos is pleased to present a mentorship program for visual storytellers and artists seeking in-depth guidance on a project.
This mentorship provides an opportunity to work one-on-one with a Magnum photographer at your own pace over the course of several months.
How does it work?
Through multiple interactive online sessions, this mentorship will help you to identify next steps in the production process of a long term or personal project. Magnum photographers will guide their mentees on all aspects of the creative process: from concept development, and editing and sequencing, to the process of discovering and making a long-term project that you’re passionate about, to practical advice on photographing in the field.
A series of 8 online photography mentoring sessions lasting one hour each, the program will be organized over the course of three to six months, depending on your preferences and the areas personal to you that require development.
