Active Imagination Creativity Coaching
Los Angeles, California. United States
A freelance photographer professionally for 20 years and sometime musician, painter, filmmaker, and writer, I work with many types of creative people helping them in their chosen field. Often using examples and analogies from photography, film and video arts, and visual arts, I work with clients to help them discover, uncover, and recover ways of overcoming creative obstacles. Visual artists, including photographers, painters, filmmakers, and video game creators, musicians, and actors have benefited from using my skills and training to help them remove blocks and increase their productivity that help them develop their portfolio, making that nerve wracking presentation...in other words "shine" their brightest. I believe there is nothing that creativity can't solve! My style of Creativity coaching helps people with immediate concerns, present work and life. Together we will work with each other to produce the best results for you. I look forward to helping you focus, grow, and enhance your creative life and work.
Methods of Working:
Initial contact made by email, or phone (please email me for the number). We will work via whatever ways you are comfortable. For some that means Skype, and for others, by phone.
A working artist for 20 years, I have designed and led workshops for girls and women in photography and animation arts. I have been studying the science of Creativity through attending conferences, workshops, and classes with such organizations like the Creative Problem Solving Institute in Buffalo, New York. I have been a member of the Creativity Coaching Association for three years where I studied with Coaching teachers and authors such as Dr. Eric Maisel, Dolly Muzer, and Sharon Good.
