"Each day was packed with special experiences tailored to the style of photography that I am working toward."
Testimonial - Kristen Vallejo
When one seeks a mentor, one hopes to find a person who embodies specific qualities that empower one to become a better, smarter, and stronger version of oneself. It can be a precarious search, as sometimes those desirable attributes are not clear, and they are rather personal. We can research and study and plan for the "right" person, but sometimes intuition guides us to our mentors. When I stumbled upon Barbara Breitsameter, I intuitively knew that she was the mentor for me.
When my mentorship weekend arrived, I was overwhelmed by the consideration and detail that Barb dedicated to my cause. Each day was packed with special experiences tailored to the style of photography that I am working toward. Barb chose dogs, settings, and approaches that were very personal to me. A litter of puppies, a large pack of powerful breeds, and her own pack of beauties (who I am particularity fond of). She listened to what I wanted, and delivered ten-fold.
Barbara Breitsameter is an attentive listener, a tireless teacher, and a whirling dervish of information. But for me, her loveliest attribute is her generous and caring spirit. She is honest and direct, yet empowering and positive.
I feel really lucky to have found Barb on my journey. She is an unusually passionate person, whose enthusiasm for her craft is contagious and inspiring. As much as I do not want to share her, I would highly encourage others to seek her services. She is simply the best!
