Master on The Arcanum


If the idea of a small community of like-minded people, all learning and growing together, encouraging each other in a mentor-apprentice platform, then check out the Arcanum. There is no other online learning experience like it. Work one on one with a Master in a positive environment and grow in your craft.”

You are invited to join me in the Arcanum and be a part of my own Cohort (This is your group of apprentices, or students.) Unlike other online classes, groups or forums, the Arcanum is based upon a community of apprentices with one Master for a Sphere, as it is called, to be challenged, encouraged and given constructive feedback on their work by the Master. While this may not sound unique, it is. The key to this is that every one starts at the same level, the steps through sphere are the same for each apprentice, regardless of talent of skill sets. While some will compete levels at a greater pace and proficiency, all move through the same process. It is the Master that helps guide them through this process by providing challenges, assignments and one-on-one feedback session of images submitted. That means no longer are you posting images to a group and receiving comments from others that may or may not be relevant, you are receiving information from a source that knows you, your goals, the direction you want to go in your art. Tailored critique is critical to growth. Feedback with actionable items is vital. Belonging to an encouraging community is inspiring. It is being on a team and having a coach. The coach wants nothing but for his players to succeed and reach their full potential. That is what The Arcanum is offering, and just like a coach, a Master can pick his own team. What a concept. Develop a community that works well together for the benefit of the community. No more armchair quarterbacks, no more I’m better than you comments, no more trolls but rather artist helping artist for the sole benefit of helping themselves and the craft. I can’t begin to tell you how refreshing and exciting this is. As one who loves photography and loves giving back, this is a platform I believe in.


There are disciplines that range from portrait, food, product, landscape, travel, stock and the list goes on and on. While the Master chooses his/her apprentices, the student has they option to accept or decline the invitation. This is brilliant to me, learn from people who want to help you, be in a community of people like yourself. The culture of this platform is truly remarkable. I invite you to visit the website, discover the process and meet some of the best artist in the world. I am truly humbled to have been selected to be a part of this and hope you will join me in the Arcanum and complete your apprentice application today. It is FREE to sign up and once you are matched with a Master, you pay $79/month.
