COVID changed everything.
Whether you are a grant seeker, wedding photographer, photojournalist, or video producer, the old techniques of engaging clients or funders are not going to cut it this year. We know businesses require fresh approaches and new models to adapt to the post-COVID marketplace. With one of our private coaching sessions, you will get actionable feedback on your portfolio, website, grant applications, or marketing plan.
You chose the topic and the consultant.
You can pick the consultant who best meets your needs based on their real-world expertise. Then, in a detailed questionnaire, you let us know what topics or projects you want to discuss and how we can best prepare for our time together. With our team, you’ll get an impartial, outside opinion so you can see things from the perspective of the editor, client, or funder.
Accountability is easier with a coach.
When you listen to successful entrepreneurs, politicians, and athletes, the vast majority say they couldn’t have achieved their goals without a great team and powerful mentors. Our goal is to help you identify opportunities you may have overlooked, find pathways to improvement, hone in your presentation, and focus your time on what will create success.
Get an unbiased outside opinion.
Our program is aimed at stopping the cycle of solo project development and finding you a professional coach to lean on and learn from as you stride towards your objectives. We are here to give you honest feedback from a different point of view. Every session ends with a doable list of goals and areas of improvement to help you concentrate on immediate, rapid success.
Don’t wait for an opportunity to pass you by.
It’s easy to get lost in the day to day routine and not realize where you need a new approach. Our consulting program wants nothing more than to see you succeed, adapt to a changing marketplace, and achieve your goals. We strive to do this quickly, efficiently, and affordably. Sign up for a consult today and let’s start planning for your success!

Hear directly from people who have worked with our consultant team members.
Bruce Murray, Commercial Photographer.
Consultant: Eva Russo.
Eva is truly amazing in every way, her teaching, business, client, and marketing expertise, organization, caring, thoughtfulness! In awe of her talent! No other class or workshop has come close to giving me the confidence and knowledge that Eva and Momenta Workshops provided in helping me believe that my dream could become a reality.
Dan Sarch, Student Photojournalist.
Consultant: Jamie Rose.
Jamie helped me understand how to make a more effective portfolio website. I decided to meet with Jamie so she could look at my images and give me advice on what I need to improve. But she made it clear it’s not just the images that fully determine whether you are fit for a job. Your website as a whole is responsible for projecting who you are as a photographer and your professionalism. Meeting with Jamie gave me the most comprehensive analysis of my portfolio website, and gave me the necessary advice to help me improve my website on my own after the session.
Ellen Schmidt, Professional Photojournalist.
Consultants: Preston Gannaway, Jamie Rose, Allison Zaucha.
While applying for fellowships and internships, Preston, Jamie, and Allison reviewed my website. Receiving feedback from people in various corners of the industry helped me figure out what changes I needed to make to transform my portfolio into a reflection of my vision and career goals.
Luis Donoso, Aspiring Documentary Photographer.
Consultant: Preston Gannaway, Chris Anderson.
I had an editing session with Preston and Chris. Preston’s process and comments were very helpful, very insightful. Her work is so expressive and emotional. Chris speaks about photography the way Winton Marsalis speaks about jazz. (Seriously, search any interview by Winton Marsalis.) You understand what Marsalis is saying…it makes perfect sense, but you can’t repeat what he said the way he said it. And I mean this in the most complimentary and respectful way. Much respect! Patient, insightful, encouraging, thoughtful, available, fun, funny, extremely qualified, inspiring…need I go on? I can think of nothing they could do to improve the experience. They were/are amazing.

Do I need to fill out an application?
You do not need to apply to do a consultation but you do need fill out a Questionnaire prior to your consultation to let us know what topics, projects, or website we will be working on with you. We send you the questionnaire after we confirm your appointment and payment.
What if I want to talk about doesn’t have anything to do with photography or video?
This is a consult aimed at giving you actionable feedback and creating a strategic challenges for you. It doesn’t have to be focused on an art project or a portfolio review. It could be anything!
Cool! So I can have you give me feedback on my grant applications?
Yes absolutely! You’ll want to book that with Jamie or Chris likely. But yes, we’d love to help with your funding applications!
Can we do photo/web/video editing software during this too?
Yes with a caveat. We find it difficult to do a lot of software editing work on a screen share in just an hour. We can discuss your content during our meetings but we don’t recommend focusing specifically on editing content on this program. We suggest you sign up for the Portfolio Mentoring cohort or a Private Mentoring instead.
When are the sessions scheduled?
It varies based on each consultant’s schedule. We’ll work with you both to find a good time and day that fits your schedule.
What if I need to miss a 1-on-1 session?
If you cancel within 3 days of your meeting time, we can reschedule a time better suited to your schedule. If you cancel your meeting with less than 3 days, you will lose your appointment and have to book a new session.
Is full payment due immediately?
Any discounts available?
Yup! We offer 10% off if you’d like to book 2 sessions or 20% off if you want to book 3+ sessions. Just give us a call at 202-688-1448 and can get you all hooked up directly.
