In our Mentoring Programs we assist you to develop and achieve a personal goal.

Our significant experience in a rage of contexts including art photography, DIY book publishing, creative project development and academic research places us as a knowledge base on these topics. Added to this we have extensive background in teaching and mentoring photographers and artists at all levels.

We can work with you via a range of methods: face-to-face sessions, Skype or phone and through email exchange. All mentorship starts with a planning meeting to discuss and refine the training/support needs and a time-table for the project. The fee charged is negotiated based on your needs.

I reached out to Doug and Vicki when I wanted an outside perspective on a body of work that I
was putting together for the 2013 Ballarat International Foto Biennale. This outside perspective
helped me to clarify my ‘artist statement’ and keep me on track. Doug and Vicki have a worldly
perspective on art and art photography, I respect their judgement, their humour and humanity
and would recommend them to all aspiring artists and photographers.
Doug and Vicki were my informed observers.

A comment from photographer/artist HARDY LAMPRECHT

Exhibitions @  Head-On Fesival in Sydney and 2 solo shows @ Gallery Frenzy, Brisbane

After a long time away from photography and the exhibition scene I was a learner again in ‘this brave new digital world’ and so I consulted the Doctor and Vicki who gave me invaluable advice on all facets of image and paper selection, post-processing adjustments, the order in which to hang an exhibition and how to optimise the use of an exhibition space. They gave me an experienced and objective point of view that ensured that the continuity of the storyline of my exhibition was never compromised. Like a book, there was a beginning and an end. This and their relaxed approach reassured me that I was in good hands and gave me the confidence to exhibit again and again.
