BIPOC Photo Mentorship Program

Welcome to the BIPOC Photo Mentorship Program! BPM is a list of active mentorship opportunities that are available to emerging BIPOC photographers in all areas of the industry. In the list below you will find many different kinds of offerings – find one that fits your needs, then reach out to the mentor.

Make sure you read to the bottom of each mentor's listing to find their specific application instructions. The list is searchable by areas of practice, mentorship offerings, and by using keywords. Use the "Filter" button below and select "focus" or "type of mentorship" as your filter. Then select the areas of the industry or the mentorship types that best match your interest. You can sort the entire list alphabetically by these categories as well. *Note that as mentorships fill up, we will also indicate if a mentor is no longer available.

Note: we do not vet these mentors so it’s imperative that you do your research and that you are comfortable with the arrangement before you accept a mentorship position. If you do accept a position, make sure you are able to commit - it's important that you ask any questions necessary to determine the scope of that commitment. Please pursue no more than three mentorship positions at any given time. If you secure a mentorship, we ask that you disclose this to any other mentors you have approached, just in case they would rather take on someone who doesn’t already have a confirmed mentorship. Other than that, it’s up to you and the mentor to find a fit that’s right for you! If you have questions, email us at:

Also, make sure you're registered with us so that we can share our future plans with you!

And keep checking back - we will be adding new mentors as we go. Share with your networks to keep the BPM excitement alive and to help grow the program.
