PDF eBooks of All New Articles

We know that many of you enjoy reading my articles each week, so in addition to web access to all articles, MBP Pro includes a beautiful members-only downloadable PDF eBook of each new article released with up to 3,860 pixel wide high-resolution images so that you can fully appreciate the real-world example photos included even on 4K and 5K displays, and of course, read them offline or even print them.

View some sample pages and see viewing instructions here.

Members Library

Your membership gives you instant access to the Members Library, which currently contains all eBooks released since March 2020, in magazine rack style, and when you tap or click on a book it opens in a full screen in a lightbox with page-turning, zoom, bookmarks and thumbnails section, etc. 

You need to be online to use the viewer, but it works great on a computer, iPad, tablet, and smartphone. On smaller screens, the view automatically splits the pages, which makes reading much easier on small screens. If you want to download any of the eBooks as you browse, there is a download button in the viewer toolbar as well. Note too that there is currently no restriction on which months you view and download, so join now, and get access to the entire backlog!

From your My Account section, you can manage all other aspects of your account, including collecting your member downloads, tracking shipment of physical products, managing consultancy or mentorship session bookings, and even, should you ever want to, delete your entire account. Note though that deleting your account doesn’t cancel a subscription. You have to cancel your subscription before deleting your account.

MBP Pro Mentorship!

In addition to our MBP Pro Memberships, we will be offering a Mentorship which includes all of the MBP Pro benefits, but also you get two one-hour consultation session with Martin each quarter in which you have a choice of having a 10 to 15 photo portfolio review, fine art printing consultation, photography business or general photography Q&A consultation session.

You specify which type of consultation you want when you book your session and you can switch between session type freely. Martin then customizes your session based on your requirements.

Exclusive Mentee Lounge!

Mentees also get access to the exclusive Mentee Lounge in which you can exchange notes with other mentees and pick challenging assignments to take your photography to the next level. The Mentee lounge get priority replies from Martin on topics under discussion.

Photography Related Assignments

As a Mentee, you’ll also be able to pick-up assignments in the Mentee Lounge and interact with other Mentees and Martin to discuss your results or any challenges you are facing.

Discounted Additional Mentee Consultation

If you find that you need more than two consultation sessions per quarter, as a mentee, you can book additional consultation sessions at a 10% discount, subject to availability of open consultation slots.

Mentorships Limited to 10 Mentees

The Mentorship program will initially be limited to 10 mentees to ensure that Martin is able to dedicate sufficient time to each mentee. There is no guarantee that we’ll get ten people to sign up, so interaction in the Mentee Lounge may be a little sparse, to begin with.

5% or 10% Discounts by Level

MBP Pro members get a 5% discount on all fine art prints or digital products or consultation sessions purchased from this website, and Mentees get a 10% discount. (including 10% off any additional consultation bought during a quarter. One session per quarter is included in the Mentorship.)
