Next session starts TBD
Mentor Kellie Hatcher
In 2009 Kellie Hatcher started a photography business, capturing imperfect lives and moments through her own lens. Since then her business has grown and flourished as she has had the blessing to photograph the beautifully imperfect for many other families.
Kellie believes the most important moments to capture are the real ones life offers daily and she guides her students in how to do the same. In her class Light + Life she covers all aspects of light and how to capture it most beautifully without interrupting the moments unfolding around the camera. This isn't easy to do, and is a learned practice that she walks her students through step by step.
We hear so many students say that they would like to go back to that time they had with Kellie in class or that they would like to learn from her even if they have already mastered using natural light. This two-week mentoring session will give DEFINE alumni an opportunity to connect with this incredible teacher for the first time or delve deeper into learning about light, running a photography business, shooting sessions or anything else they would like to focus on with Kellie.
While our interactive courses revolve around a focused syllabus, mentoring sessions give students direct access to Kellie to pick her brain, learn from her wealth of knowledge, and have her critique their work. Students who have taken Light + Life know how valuable Kellie's critiques of their work are, and these sessions are an opportunity to have her evaluate students' new work, in order to help them continue to move forward and grow. And as anyone who has spent time with Kellie knows, every moment with her is inspiring!
