Mentoring your Images for the Awards
Thinking of entering the Awards. At the Queensland, National and Interstate Awards, I see images entered that are badly cropped, poorly lit, wrongly chosen, bad printing, wrong category chosen and I could go on it seems forever. The number of times over the years I have been sitting there judging and the panel gives a print a score just below silver and with correct cropping, a bit of burning, some vignetting and some minor photoshop, this print would of easily gone silver. Bring your images over to me and I will mentor your images forward. The goal is for your scores to improve. If you are too far away from Brisbane, give me a ring and then we can do this exercise by phone and email and snails mail.

Mentoring Costs
Mentoring sessions costs $95 per hour and can be for one hour or for as long as you need to achieve your dreams.

Testimonials and Raves from Photographers helped by Stephen Jones
I first met Stephen when he held a talk at my college to share his experiences in the photographic industry over the years and I was privileged to have him show us his award winning images through the AIPP. Having joined the AIPP as a student member, I have been blessed to have had multiple opportunities to work with and be mentored by Stephen over the last few months. He is a genuine, honest and down to earth person and is willing to share his knowledge and experience as well as being incredibly generous with his time to explain the details of a particular scenario. I look forward to more opportunities to work with Stephen in the future.
