Photography Mentoring Program with David Lawrence
Sharing knowledge is the responsibility of all professionals. Whether you are new photographer or a seasoned professional growth is always possible. My personal credo is that you are only as good as your last photograph. This has led me to the concept of mentoring. Working with a mentor is a proven method that will assist you in achieving your goals as a photographer. I have developed a mentoring program over the past two years that offers three options providing a wide range of opportunities for everyone. Each course will be designed to fit the individualâs current base of knowledge. I will cover areas that will support consistent growth and stability in producing quality and artistic results. For those that have Photoshop CS3,4 or 5 and Lightroom 1 or 2 I will also work with you on post production techniques that I have found to be useful.
The 6 week program will cost $900.00, an 8 week program at $1,100.00 and the 12 week program will be $1,600.00. Each week I will provide 4 hours of telephone support, assignments with assignment review, portfolio review and directional support. It all starts with a conversation to determine your current status as a photographer. I will then work to develop a plan of action so that you reach the goals you have dreamed of attaining. Thanks so much for your interest in participating in my mentoring program. I look forward to working with you in the expansion of your knowledge.

David Lawrence has been a master of expressive portrait, social function and people photography for more than 25 years. During that time styles and fads have come and gone but David's methods have remained true and effective. The tenets his work is based upon are not a matter of style but of substance.
David became interested in Shibari, the Art of Japanese Rope Bondage, in early 2003. With a keen artist's eye, David recognized the inherent beauty of rope on skin. Shibari quickly became a passion, one that developed more intensely as he worked with and experienced the magic of rope. David's talent and skill truly emerged as he delved deeper into the art of tying rope. His ties are meticulous, intricate, intense and beautiful. In fact, they are all true works of art.
David's gift to us is his ability to expertly blend his two passions; rope and photography. As a result, his striking images communicate sensuality, eroticism, and the force of raw emotion. His use of lighting, angles, and sheer creativity is the key to his poignant imagery.
In June of 2005, David Lawrence's diligent efforts resulted in the publishing and release of his first book, "BOUND" published by Secret Magazine. firstname.lastname@example.org
BOUND Shibari Style Impressions was published by Secret Magazine and released in June 2005. This coffee table book is the first of three to be published.
