"Working with Kevin has given me the confidence to be creative, the determination to work hard, the ability to be self-critical, the tenacity to keep trying and the inspiration to be different and avoid the commonplace. His guidance and belief in me, when I doubted my ability, kept me going and pushed me to find a way to achieve the results that I was seeking. He has a unique ability to deliver feedback on your work in a way that makes you think rather than shrink! He encourages you to examine your work and to identify the weaknesses as well as pointing out the strengths. Never once did I feel that I was being criticised and I always came away from our conversations feeling positive, inspired and excited about what I might achieve.
Kevin has mentored me now for 15 months and in that time, I have learned so much and I am continually surprised to see that each time I shoot, there is ongoing improvement. Under Kevin’s mentorship, I recently submitted a panel of work to the British Institute of Professional Photography with the hope of achieving my Licenciate qualification. To my utter astonishment, I was awarded the Associate. This is undoubtedly down to Kevin’s invaluable support.
If you are thinking about working with Kevin, stop thinking and sign up. You will be investing a very small amount in comparison to what you will get back! It isn’t easy. You will work hard and Kevin does not spoon-feed you; he challenges and encourages you to seek your own solutions, offering guidance and feedback along the way. For me, this makes him a truly exception teacher, because it means that not only are you improving your own photography skills but you are also developing the skills to continually reassess your own progress and keep your work moving forward. If you want to be the best photographer that you possibly can be and if you want to keep striving to be the absolute best that there is, Kevin’s mentorship will be the magic ingredient in your development! What are you waiting for? I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him. I almost wish I could start my journey all over again! "
