Thank you for your interest in the Photographer mentoring Sessions.
I used to offer workshops throughout the years, but I prefer giving my undivided attention to one person at a time. I have been a photographer for over 14 years, I have photographed amongst other things: weddings, engagement and couples, boudoir, maternity, newborn, babies and kiddies, cake smashes, milkbaths, pets, families, macro, still life, beauty, etc…to name only a few. (You can still view my portfolio on my Celia van Niekerk Photography Facebook Page and Instagram Account. Due to a shoulder problem, I sadly had to hang up my camera for a while…)
Mentor sessions with me include:
5-6 hour mentor session, in Nigel.
Weekdays Only (Excluding public holidays.)
R3200 per session.
A R1000 booking fee required to reserve your slot in my schedule.
Balance due 48 hours before the mentor session.
The above mentioned price excludes any prop cost/rentals, venue rentals, styled shoot cost for portfolio building, etc., etc. These will be for your account.
Mentor session to take place in the direct Nigel vicinity. (Due to a shoulder issue I do not travel at present, thank you for understanding.)
