One on One Consulting with Stephen Johnson

I teach because I believe I can make a difference for people.
It is a deep ethic, with three decades of photography and teaching experience, combined with some great feedback from my students.

One on One Photographic Help

Our One and One Consulting is an exciting formalization of work we have been doing with photographers for years. It has been one of the core interactions that has proved extremely valuable to students.

We offer one hour sessions where individuals can book mutually agreeable times at our studio, in the field or online virtually to work one on one with Steve. Keep checking the schedule for when we are in your area.

Every artist or photographer needs a mentor and Stephen Johnson is truly that. He has integrity in his work and that translates into his mentorship program. He helps every photographer ask the most of their photographs, just as though they were working in the darkroom, and then empowers them with the knowledge and practice of how to obtain the best results from Photoshop. With all the work you have done to create your photographs, Stephen will teach you how to print them to the level they were meant to be displayed. I am grateful to have found Stephen’s mentorship program and highly recommend him.

I highly recommend Stephen Johnsonís virtual consulting service. I have taken a number of workshops from Stephen and also attended a couple of photography trips with him. His photography knowledge and expertise are excellent. I really admire his printing skills and have seen that he has an amazing eye for detail.

There are times when it is difficult for me to get to Stephenís studio because of my schedule. I have found using Skype to communicate with him a perfect way to utilize his skills. Recently on Skype, Stephen helped me set up paper profiles for my new Epson printer. I am thrilled that Stephen has added this option to his growing list of services.
