In response to the demand for those seeking to either improve their photography or gain an insight into the commercial world of photography and or exhibiting Chris Close is now offering a one to one mentoring service.

Sessions are £100 and will last approximately one and half hours. They will cater for the individual at whatever stage they are at and whatever their ambitions are.

Please note this is not a photography course to teach technique although portfolio guidance can be given to those wishing it.

The sessions are designed to inspire and inform the individual.

Please get in touch for time slots.
