I am excited to announce that I will be offering free scholarships to people interested in stroking their inner artistic child. Application Deadline is December 15th. In order to apply, please send a brief paragraph about why you want to become a better photographer and artist and attach no more than 3-5 images in .jpg format. You must be at least 12 years old. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll be notifying the winners on a rolling basis. You must be willing to commit to a free 4 months. A 50% discount will be offered to continuing students after that. You can apply for either location based private lessons (on Culebra Island December – January) and Maine February – November.
How would you like to work with an experienced photographer and artist? Someone with whom you will feel comfortable sharing your thoughts, your work, and your dreams as an artist? Laurie Knowlton is now accepting a limited amount of new students for mentoring as well as offering workshops and critiquing. Laurie specializes in iPhone Photography, “Point and Shoot” Cameras, as well as DSLRs and “specialized” camera processes such as Infared and Long Exposure shooting. Her services are perfect for anyone, regardless of age, skill level or residence.
Workshops are offered primarily on the Coast of Maine and Isla de Culebra, Puerto Rico and online mentoring from anywhere in the world!
How Does It Work?
Mentoring in Groups
