Alison Shaw Photography will be offering a six-month mentorship program, Sharpen Your Focus: Taking your Work to the Next Level starting in mid-November. Ms. Shaw has been teaching week-long photo workshops on the Island for more than 20 years.

A new offering, the mentorship is designed to provide a long-term, more intensive experience for students wanting to take the next step with their photography.

The focus of the mentorship will be regular one-on-one sessions with Ms. Shaw and her partner Sue Dawson. Sessions with Ms. Shaw will concentrate on developing your own style, staying consistent, getting feedback, finding motivation and keeping focused. Sessions with Ms. Dawson will focus on mindset, opening up a creative flow, building a portfolio, graphic identity, website, book ideas and marketing your work.

The program will include two weekend retreats on the Island, teachings developed specifically for the group, a mentorship Facebook group page, a private photo shoot with Ms. Shaw, the opportunity to have your work featured on her website and a discount in the gallery.

Space is limited. For information, call Ms. Dawson at 508-693-4429.
