Mentor Session with Jessee Pt 2

Jessee is attended Peter’s 5 Day LA Workshop 2 years ago and saw we were returning to LA this year so he got in touch to organise a mentor session, wanting to discuss how he can transition into becoming a full time commercial photographer, marketing tips, dealing with models/ agencies, plus more!

We hope you enjoy this relaxed mentor session with a beer.

    Yes, i like the long-winded :). Mainly because in this long conversations you may say 1-2 things by coincidence which are “normal” to you, but may open my mind for a different perspective.

    The idea of mixing own pictures with those of the target agency is just simple and brilliant.
    Thank you for sharing your thoughts!

    With love from Germany

    Thank You Jesse and Peter – a great session to view with so many lessons to learn from. Jesse’s questions and Peter’s advice is so relevant to help me on my early photography journey. I love the advice to shoot what brands are currently showing but try make even better.

  • Love the work Jessee. I also agree with Martin, it’s the points of conversations that may be repeated many times in your discussions but you add something new each time in the long format because of the depth of the chat.
    Maybe it’s because I am not a millennial, but soundbite interviews do not offer any value in the way a full discussion does.
    Always learning, thank Peter.

  • This was awesome! I’ve always thought about sending one photo a week but I feel with the world of insta everything that I say ok it’ll be about two weeks and then I sit there and try to edit as fast as I can and never catch up and now I’m “behind.” Telling them up front I think would be best, “hey I’ll be sending a minimum once a week, it could take up to 2 months to get the whole set.” I love that. And please do more of these sessions. This is what you can’t find or see on youtube university lol

      Thanks heaps, so glad you enjoyed it and took something away from it. I always set the expectation from the start that they won’t get a heap of photos at once which helps with being ‘behind’ or having people asking for their photos. We’ll definitely be doing lots more mentoring sessions 🙂
