Hey, you are right.

So is this mentor program and port feedback/evaluation thing still on?

There are two mentors assisting in the administration of this list. I'm one of them.  Until someone gets officially assigned to run this, it will keep on the same way,  with mentors responding to offers to help.  I am unaware of any 'moderator' function available nor have I seen the need for it.  Everyone here has been refreshingly respectful.

About the only only thing we can't do for the moment is "add" new mentors to the list so to anyone in the pipeline, my apologies for the delay.

Hi Dan,

Thanks for the answers.
OK, so I'll sit tight. Whenever you or the other member are able to eval my port, that would be most welcome.

Later on, when I get some experience with studio strobes, I'll apply for the 2nd List membership.

cheers,

Dean

Greetings to All,



I'm an aspiring fashion photographer, (with no formal experience), I Starting doing photography in August, at first I was doing it because I was bored and had nothing else to do, It's quite hard getting a decent job in my area, and there's not a lot of opportunity, besides attending the university or the college's, even though it's city.

Back to the point at hand, I am requiring a mentor// someone to shadow, that can teach me, Ideally I would be a helper for the fashion photographer, I don't mind doing any odd jobs or whatever, if it in someway will help towards me getting more knowledge more experience in the end, I would then at some point move up to the position of someone that assist the fashion photographer, I know generally you need qualifications for something like this, but what if you've been learning on your own through various vices, and feel your creative side is starting to come out in a positive way, and you just want to explore it in part, with the guidance and knowledge of someone who know's what your wanting to do, or has some idea.


I'm looking for someone near me, but really and truly it doesn't matter if your far away. My port reflects the kinds of things I'm wanting to do// convey at the moment, some genre work, my version of editorial is in there, some naturalistic also, and I'm wanting to do other things also.


If anyone know's anyone that can help me, in my area, bristol//reading // LONDON, or oversea's please pass link of my work to them or pass me there link by profile messsage//inbox



TY

Hello all,

I've been on here a while but just discovered the "list". If any mentor has the time, I would really appreciate a critique.

Thanks,

Sorry for the delay. I was unexpectedly in the hospital for close to 3 weeks.
As for the list I do not have formal power to add you (or anyone else).  The mods should have this figured out soon though.

Wish I could but until a formal list moderator is created, add/deletes from this list are not possible.
you can take out the '2nd list' mentor code from your home page if you have it.

just to follow up, it has been decided that a MOD will take over the moderation of the mentoring lists.  This is expected to happen shortly.

This is awesome! I'd like to have my portfolio evaluated! I'm just a hobbyist photographer with too much free time on my hands now.
And I'd like to know if there's any way I can help!

The request went in to the MODs weeks ago for them to assign someone to have power to add/change the list but so far no reply.  Hopefully in the new year. In the mean time, patience is required.

Sorry to have to repeat myself. I guess my last explanation is now on a previous page.
This is what happened.  The person running this list (I was assisting) is no longer an MM member.  In the interim the moderators decided (not sure why?) to have only Mods in charge of the 'list' forums.  I did volunteer to take over on an interim basis, as did others on different lists affected but got no reply (not even a no thank you).

I followed up on it again with a new thread in the Site-Related forum and posted in a similar thread about the model lists.

Still nothing.

So for the moment all that can be done is existing listmembers offering to mentor others on an ad-hoc basis.  The mentoring was always ad-hoc so this has not changed.  It is not possible to add new photographers to the list or even delete the ones who already requested to be removed.

I wish I could do more but at the moment I'm just a listmember with that cool logo on my profile and an entry in the list.

Finally some good news. We have a new list started up.

http://www.modelmayhem.com/po.php?thread_id=812237

since no one new can be added to this list I suggest everyone migrate to the new one. It is fully moderated by a live, very helpful person.

Hey guys, I'm going to have this thread locked as we can't have two of the same floating here and I can do a better job of managing the one.

Years ago I started theLIST programs and eventually turned them over to others. I'm back now with time to devote to them so I'll go back through this thread and move to the new thread, qualified individuals who've been waiting.

All mentors will be sent the new banner links for their profile pages. If you want to speed up the process just send me a pm and I'll send you the code.

Thanks!
