//Application for the
Lumina Mentor Program//

The Lumina Mentor Program is for photographers wanting to fuel and develop a current fine art or documentary project. We meet as a group one weekend a month over five months to dive into each project, addressing vital aspects of the photographic process, covering creative and logistical issues including: editing techniques, making book dummies, website polishing, portfolio presentation, editorial pitches, grant proposals, gallery protocol, artist statements and targeting your work’s ideal audience.


In keeping the group intimate and varied to maximize focus and we ask participants to be committed, curious and open to pushing their creative boundaries. Lumina is an active community that allows access to a broad network within the international photographic world. Our aim is to strengthen your creative integrity with practical tools you can carry forward beyond our five months together. Mentor Program participants also have priority access to other Lumina workshops and events.

The next Mentor Program starts the weekend of  

December 13th and runs through May, 2018.
