Virtual Photography Consultation, Trip Planning, Image Processing Tutorials, Portfolio Reviews and Advice

Virtual Photography Consultations with Max Waugh

Following the intrusion of COVID-19 on our lives, I was forced to cut back on my local photography outings for a couple years. I began looking for alternative ways of helping clients with photography advice, and quietly began offering virtual consultations via Zoom.

I have yet to begin offering private workshops again in the Pacific Northwest (I still offer them in Yellowstone if the timing works out with my other tours), but I am finally ready to offer consulting as an official service. Sessions are conducted over Zoom, and can range between 1-2 hours. Clients are also able to split sessions in to separate 1-hour segments (for example, a prep session prior to a shoot, followed by a post-shoot image critique).

Possible session topics and services include:

  • Camera gear and equipment advice
  • Photography tutorials
  • Trip planning and advice (e.g., Pacific NW, Yellowstone, South America, Africa)
  • General Q&A
  • Image critiques
  • Editing/Post-processing insights
  • Portfolio reviews
  • Photo competition submission reviews and advice

I find that pre-shoot consultations are most productive if clients come prepared with a series of questions. Know what you want to learn from me and how to express your questions so that we can make the best use of your time!

For post-shoot sessions (image critiques, editing, portfolio reviews) I will request that clients provide images ahead of time.


$150/1 Hour, $275/2 Hours

Please note: rates above are the cost per individual. If you have a group that would like to book a session, we can work out a group rate. If you are a larger organization seeking my services for a full presentation (slide show format or live talk), contest judging, or other event, please contact me directly with your request.
