Become a More Skilled and Confident Equestrian Photographer with Shelley Paulson

Shelley Paulson, a commercial and editorial equestrian photographer based in Minnesota, announces enrollment is now open for her photography mentorship “Wings” for Equestrian Photographers wanting to level up their photography skills and soar in their confidence behind the camera.

The Wings Mentorship is a 3-month online learning and group mentorship experience for both professionals and passionate amateurs.

More than just an online course, Wings will help you grow as a photographer with the guidance of a mentor who cares about your success and a community cheering you on along the way.

In this unique learning experience, you will embark on a transformative journey to rapidly improve your equestrian photography and give you CONFIDENCE behind the camera. 

 Wings is the only educational opportunity of its kind for equine photographers because it’s a live, cohort-based learning experience. With video lessons, weekly live coaching calls, homework assignments, and an interactive Facebook community, you get the support you need to actually improve your equine photography skills and see tangible, immediate results.

“This mentorship is ideal for people working in equine media who would like to be confident behind the camera and able to do more in the editing process to make their photos stand out,” Shelley said.

She also added, “This is also a great opportunity for equine brands to improve their in-house media by investing in their staff photographers and signing them up for the mentorship.”

Some topics covered in the mentorship include:

  • Find the Light, Find the Magic
  • Composition for Better Storytelling
  • Posing the Horse and the Rider
  • Save Time with an Efficient Workflow
  • Learn and Love Lightroom
  • Perfecting Your Images with Retouching

The Wings Mentorship starts in January, and applications are open now. Visit to learn more and enroll.

This is a limited-time opportunity offered just once per year, and spots are filling up quickly.

Registration will close on December 11th or when it fills, so don’t wait, or you might miss your chance to improve your photography for your 2024 season!
