become the photographer of your dreams
The only thing I love as much as photography is teaching about photography! I often think of my own struggles when I first learned photography, or even in the obstacles I face as I continue to grow and advance as a creative and a business owner. It's with this insight that I have created my own benchmarks for successfully learning photography, editing and running a business.

Why should you take a workshop with us?
Why should you mentor with us? It can be a big investment, no matter where you go, but what sets us apart is:
1. We don't set limitations on our students. You can live next door or across the world and we still want to teach you! Plus you receive a lifetime discount of 15% off future workshops!
2. When your class is over, we offer continued support and education so that your growth is nurtured, guided and molded to get you exactly where you want to be. We focus on your goals and take a genuine interest in building a road map to achieving those dreams.
3. We want to uplift, inspire and encourage YOU to be the best photographer you can be. Our students have gone on to open their own studios, have been able to quit their jobs and support their family as a full-time photographer, and some of them are winning awards and being recognized for their art!

We have been teaching for 4 years, both locally here in Ohio, and all over the United States. Ellie Mellie has won awards nationally, have been named one of the top ten photographers in Ohio, and has been asked to teach at an international level.
