How it Works:

wilmington photography lessons

Once your mentoring session is booked, we will discuss a list of topics that interest you and develop a curriculum based on those topics. We’ll help you plan any gear or equipment that you may need to bring, or help you find a model if your session involves portraiture. Then simply come in for your session and learn like crazy! We’ll provide the coffee…

There are two types of instruction we offer:
Crash Courses allow you to learn as much as you can in a two hour, half day, or full day lesson.
Mentorships allow you to have consistent instruction to grow your skills over time.

Who are We, Anyway?

Wanna know a little more about your mentors?  It’s ok, we would too!  While The Shoot Space is our labor of love to pay it forward to the photography community, indigosilver studio is our wedding and portrait photography business.  We’re real photographers, with real clients.  We’ve been in the business nearly a decade.  We’ve learned a lot of things the hard way, and we’d love to share those lessons with you… you know, so you can skip the “hard way” part.
