Are you a photographer working in the Country Lifestyle space? Do you capture agriculture, families in the countryside, equines or canines? If so, you officially have THE BEST job in the world.
Being self employed with your own photography business is an incredible feeling, but it can feel lonely and daunting at times. With so many possible pathways to take and unanswered questions, it can quickly become overwhelming.
Do you ever wish you could pick a fellow photographer’s brain on what steps to take next?
By booking a Mentorship Day with Lucy, she can share her expertise and experience with you 1:1 so that the day is entirely bespoke and tailored to you and your business.
After starting her photography career at a large studio in Essex as a photographer and commercial editor at the age of 17, Lucy went on to start her own business specialising in Equine & Canine Photography and exhibiting at Olympia London International Horse Show in 2019. Before following her love of agriculture and becoming The Rural Lifestyle Photographer just as Covid-19 hit the UK. Passionate about photography, Lucy wants to help and inspire as many photographers into the industry as possible- as she truly believes that it is
THE BEST JOB IN THE WORLD.
I can't wait to work with you again in the future.

“It will probably come at no surprise that I’m ridiculously passionate about photography.
I love the process.
The vision, the creation, the editing and the knowing that each photograph means something.
I was a Director for The British Institute of Professional Photography and currently write for Photography Magazines – to help share the pure joy of photography and to encourage others into the industry.
Offering Mentorship, allows me one more way to do this. “
Lucy - thank you! I was lost and now I'm not!
Thanks to you I have a solid plan and a clearer vision. I’m ready to take action without feeling overwhelmed and completely stuck.
Your mentorship was excellent – you tailored it to me and you came well prepared. Throughout the day I felt like you really wanted to help me. It’s obvious that you are enjoying mentoring others.
I’m very glad I decided to invest in my business and that I chose YOU as my mentor.

When is the right time to find a mentor?
Having a mentor at any stage of your business, whether you are just starting out, or a seasoned professional, can help to boost your business to the next level. Look for a mentor who understands the field of photography you are in, who inspires and motivates you, and has travelled a similar journey to where you want to be.
HOW DO I GET THE MOST OUT OF MY MENTORSHIP DAY?
Prepare, prepare, prepare. In the time leading up to your mentorship day start brainstorming questions that you would love to know the answer to. On the day, have all your equipment fully charged and by your side and any marketing material, portfolio images etc. easy to access on your laptop. Also grab a cup of tea and a notebook to start.
What if I have a question that hasn't been answered?
Reach out, and get in touch.
