Through personal mentoring you will be guided towards your creative goals as a visual artist and professional. Creativity is a trait that can be recognized, exercised and fostered. Together we will identify and move towards your artistic goals. We’ll find inspiration through my knowledge of historical and contemporary photographers. On this path, a bit of outside perspective and motivation can be a catalyst, whether that takes the shape of a little nudge or a push off the proverbial cliff! I’ll be there to support and guide you through this process.
Mentoring is available hourly or long term with personal one on one guidance. I also offer a Photographic History consult, exploring the innovative photographers and art movements of this rich history. Creative assignments will be given to inspire you in this program.

There is so much I enjoy about being a video editor – collaborating with a creative team, telling stories, communicating a unique and clear message and finding new ways to be creative with the moving image. As your editor I will work to create videos that are dynamic, interesting and effective at selling your idea, product or service.

As a photographer, I needed an artist statement to enter my work into certain venues, but I struggled with the wording. I can’t say enough about the excellent work that Eileen has done on my statement. She took a below average statement and transformed it into an appealing and informative artist statement. She listened to my thoughts and suggestions, then worked her magic, and far surpassed my expectations.
She constantly blows me away with her ability to understand the emotional feeling of a project, to find the specific clips in the footage that support that feeling, and to edit it all together so successfully. She's so valuable!
"Eileen's knowledge of art history and current trends, as well as her keen eye for editing, sequencing, and getting the overall picture have helped my photography considerably."
After 8 years and too many projects together to count, the one consistent element to all of our success is Eileen Rafferty. No matter what type of shenanigans we cook up, we know that Eileen can deliver our vision on every level. Her ability to take our ideas and meld them with her own ability to find the story within the story is what turns good to gold.
I couldn't have asked for a better motivator, teacher and encourager. Eileen has an uncanny grasp of the creative process and firsthand experience with the intricacies and unpredictability of the artistic journey. She is unfailingly generous in sharing her wealth of knowledge.
Over the course of our long-term consulting arrangement, Eileen has provided expert advice that’s tailored to my needs. Her years of teaching experience have allowed her to provide me with richer, more tightly focused guidance. Thanks in part to her help, I’ve met my original goals and am now poised to take advantage of opportunities I never could have imagined before.
