Summer term Mentorship: July 1 – September 30, 2021

Registration deadline: June 24, 2021

Students receive individualized attention and guidance about their creative and artistic photographic practice through ten hours of one-on-one meeting time with an ICP mentor.

Students register for mentorship hours, and then meet their mentor online to review their current portfolio; mentors assess student’s current photographic strengths, identify growth opportunities, and help students to choose Continuing Education (CE) courses which will help them to become stronger visual storytellers.

Subsequent meetings, which will be set-up between the student and the mentor throughout the term, include goal setting and feedback about current student work and projects. Upon conclusion of the mentorship hours, students will have gained an increased awareness about their own photographic and artistic practice, set goals for future personal and technical growth, and will benefit from the career expertise of their mentor.
