All communications will occur via phone or online and can be face to face if you are willing to travel to meet your mentor. The opportunity to photograph with your mentor may be a valuable gift for your photographic journey. Face to Face meetings wil be agreed upon and worked out by each mentor team. Additional costs may be associated with in-person meetings.

Each mentorship program is developed for individual personal one-to-one sessions with your mentor with a frequency of approximately every three weeks. This time frame is flexible, however, mentorships should be completed by the end of the chosen period (6 or 12 months). Sessions will be conducted over the phone or email, although Skype and iChat are possibilities. Assignments will be given by the mentor at the end of each session to be completed within the three-week timeframe. Images should be posted or emailed to the mentor with enough time for the mentor to review the work before the next scheduled session.

It will be important to respect the mentors’ time commitments to this program, as all of our mentors are busy professionals. Each mentor session is 75 minutes. Any contact with your mentor between these scheduled sessions should to be kept to emergencies.

The Santa Fe Digital Darkroom Photographic Workshops will post a web gallery of images made by all mentorship students, giving your work international
exposure and resume prestige.

Although we know travel is not always possible, we do invite students to come join us for the special events offered by PhotoArts Santa Fe every year. This event offers seminars, lectures, and presentations, along with fun social gatherings for valuable networking.
