Clarity is one of the keys to developing a project you love. When you clarify your definite chief aim, many opportunities for personal growth and professional practice will come your way. As a result of working with me, artists, photographers and authors, clarify their projects, strengthen their photographic research, editing and story telling. They develop self-confidence and skills required to edit, print and publish their work. I am looking for individuals who are interested in transforming their photographic projects into photoworks, installations, photobooks, editions, multiples and can use clarity coaching. Who do you know that would benefit from clarity and self-belief to develop their photographic practice?
