Documentary Family Photography Mentoring

Elevate Your Craft: Mentorship in Documentary Photography

You don’t have to do it all alone.

Starting or growing a photography business is far from being easy. We need to wear many hats and some of them don’t come naturally to us.

Hi, I’m Johanna King, an award-winning Dublin family photographer focusing on the candid, unscripted, moments of family life.

I have 10+ years photographing families all across Ireland and I am also a mother of two

One of the most important things I have done for my business early on is investing in education & mentoring at times when I felt I couldn’t afford it.

The thing is, it often is the very thing you cannot afford NOT to invest in.

I can help you with a variety of subjects and if it is not listed below, feel free to get in touch and we’ll schedule a short introductory call to see whether I am the right mentor for you.

I also love sea swimming, chocolate, and travelling (without kids – shhhhh), but who doesn’t?

“Johanna is not only a great photographer and the kindest human being – she is a very knowledgeable and generous teacher. She will share and help you see things clearly while being empathetic. Her greatest gift is being very honest and to the point while making you feel just as competent. Her advice is always inspiring and motivating. I loved working with her and I am sure we will again!”

In-person workshop

3h30 in a location near me.

The in-person workshop is perfect for in-the-field mentoring, but can also be used to discuss any of the above subjects (this gives us time to go more in-depth).

Each session is €500 and can be shared with one other photographer.

Add a review of your images from the photoshoot for €200 (either online or in-person on the same day).

Get in touch & we’ll schedule a chat.
