“She definitely gave me the confidence & the knowledge to shoot the day the way I had hoped. Nat was kind, friendly & I felt relaxed knowing that I wasn’t being looked down upon for not knowing things” - Amber. Honey Media.
“Not only did she help me understand the things I was stuck on, she also made me feel so welcome in this industry and she honestly goes above and beyond to make sure you don’t feel intimidated at ALL.” - Emily. Zephyr Digital.
Cinematography and filmmaking is a craft, and like many crafts it can be elaborate and difficult to master without guidance.
I find sharing knowledge to be extremely rewarding, and having been through it myself I know how isolating it can be working for your own business with no one to ask for advice.
Having someone give you constructive feedback about your films and business can really help to lift the quality of your work and give you the clarity to develop your own unique style.
The Mentor Sessions are a great chance to ask anything you want for an hour or so, no topic is off limits and no question is too silly!
Need recommendations for cameras or lenses to buy or feedback about your business? Have a wedding film you need some constructive criticism on or some advice on how to nail that film technique you’ve been trying to tackle?
Make a list of your questions, grab a coffee and fire away.
Some topics we can cover :
The Legal Stuff • Website Critique & Design advice • Branding • Attracting your Ideal Client • Gear • Client Experience • Pricing • Finding Your Style • Productivity • Filming Style + On-the-Day Logistics • Editing + Presentation • Portfolio Review
This is the perfect opportunity to discover new ways of operating and find answers to common problems that you're having.
“I booked my first wedding a year in advance, and with 365 days to prepare, I left it only ONE MONTH prior to book a mentor session with Nat. Safe to say, it was an anxiety inducing time. I went to Nat having no knowledge of audio recording & left knowing how to work the audio recorder, an abundance of recommendations, youtube links, and a full page of notes with tips on how to work out my runsheet, what times to run to, etc.
She definitely gave me the confidence & the knowledge to shoot the day the way I had hoped. The wedding couldn’t have gone smoother & the couple were so happy they got to hear their vows back again. And I was happy knowing I was now competent in weddings & audio. Phew.
Nat was kind, friendly & I felt relaxed knowing that I wasn’t being looked down upon for not knowing things. Thank you Nat – I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing now if it wasn’t for your guidance!”
“I would definitely recommend a mentor session with Nat! It was worth every cent.
As a newbie to the industry, it’s easy to feel intimidated by other videographers, but from the minute I met Nat I felt nothing but warmth and genuine kindness from her! She’s so knowledgeable in what she does and you can tell she really cares about helping others along their journey. There’s a reason why she’s one of the best!
She was so lovely and really took the time to explain my questions in detail and help me out with my trouble areas. Not only did she help me understand the things I was stuck on, she also made me feel so welcome in this industry and she honestly goes above and beyond to make sure you don’t feel intimidated at ALL.
If you’re thinking about a session with Nat, I would HIGHLY recommend. Not only did I take away some really great advice, tips and knowledge.. But Nat also gave me and continues to give me the opportunity to connect with other videographers in Perth through her ‘Film and Flamingle’ group where we can all share stories/knowledge/tips and tricks with each other too, and it really is just like hanging out with a group of old friends!”
“I just wanted to write you again with a little bit of an update since our mentoring session. I have updated my prices, website and social media for my business.
While updating my prices was a scary leap, I have already booked 3 ideal clients with my new packages! And I am over the moon (so is the beautiful couple) with my new highlights film. I can definitely see the difference in my shots and production since our session.
Thanks again so much! Honestly the best $350 I have ever spent!!”
“I'm a wedding photographer and but decided to take a chance and book Natalie to help me improve my website and critique my portfolio, and I'm so glad I did!
I've done some other mentor sessions and honestly haven't got half as much out of it as I have with Natalie.
Natalie gave me so much valuable feedback and delivered her critiques in a direct, yet non-threatening way. She even took the time a few days after our session to review my website after I'd made some changes, which was really above and beyond what I expected.
As I photographer I would highly recommend booking in a mentor session with Nat. Thank you!”
“After having a mentoring session with Natalie I left with a grown confidence as to what it takes to become successful in the film and cinematography industry.
Natalie’s experience and knowledge was well conveyed to me (a beginner), making it easy to convert her words and demonstrations into action after the session.
I would recommend Natalie to anyone who wants to know more about the industry, whether they’re just beginners or have multiple years or experience.”
