For the first time, I feel focused and confident. After several workshops with Craig, I thought I had a good grasp on how to take photographs. However, I felt my portfolio had no direction, no real substance. I wanted to take my work to the next level.  When Craig became my mentor, he immediately offered me guidance. He said, “Photograph what you love. You should do a project on rodeos.” Since that moment, Craig has been with me every step of the way. At last, I have a purpose and a goal, and that’s making all the difference in my photography. I would recommend him as a mentor to anyone serious about finding their own photographic “voice”.

A mentor can help expand your photographic knowledge and skills, help develop your own eye, and guide you on your photographic journey. A mentor's input may lead to a project, building a portfolio or learning how to make gallery contacts. Eloquent Light mentors have helped many aspiring and experienced photographers refine their vision, enhance their technical skills, and sometimes, find their own unique voice with a camera. Our instructors have long believed in giving back through teaching and mentoring. A student's success is one of our greatest joys.



To Define What We Mean By Mentoring: Mentoring is a relationship between two people with the goal of professional and personal development. We believe a mentor should support and encourage by offering suggestions and sharing knowledge, both specific and general, based on your individual needs. Our goal is to help improve your technical skills and advance your work and photo careers. We will not act as an agent for you.



We realize everyone has specific needs and questions on their journey with a camera. Your mentor will offer individual guidance based on many years of working and teaching photography. This program works well through long distance telephone and e.mail consultations. Feedback sessions on your images may be conducted online while you work on a photographic project or on a specific set of goals. Personal one-on-one meetings are available, depending on your mentor's schedule.



We will be pleased to provide a free 1/2-hour telephone consultation, where both you and your mentor will have an opportunity to ask each other questions and generally discuss the possibilities of a mentoring relationship. If, after the 1/2-hour consultation it is mutually agreed that mentoring would be useful, you will be asked to make payment and submit via snail mail a selection of your images and an in-depth questionnaire. Then, approximately 10 days later, your mentor will telephone you to discuss a personalized action plan and telephone consultation schedule for you.
