Membership & Mentorship Programs

Take your photography to the next level with a Membership or Mentorship Program!

NOTE: We are phasing in these memberships gradually, with the Bronze Membership ready for you to subscribe now!

Silver and Gold memberships will be available from April, and there will be prorated upgrade pricing available, so jump on board now with Bronze and upgrade later using the remainder of your Bronze subscription payment!

The Basic Membership is completely Free and gives unlimited access to all blog posts. Without a Basic Membership you will be limited to viewing three posts per week.

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 Bronze, Silver, and Gold include 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.

Feature Rich Profile Pages

All members get a special profile page with a Wall to post their own updates, pages to post portfolios and slideshows, and members forum updates and features for communicating with other members. This really takes your MBP Experience to the next level!

Note that Basic Free Members also get a Profile Page, but some of the paid features are disabled.

Subscription Management

There is a Manage Subscriptions item in your Account Menu (when logged in) that takes you directly to a page to manage your current subscription, including upgrading, downgrading and cancelling it, as well as setting new payment methods etc.

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.

Members-only Community

Bronze, Silver, and Gold members get access to our members-only community area, where you can interact with Martin and other like-minded photographer members to discuss a myriad of topics to help you grow both technically and creatively. 

Monthly Wallpaper

Bronze, Silver, and Gold members receive a new high-resolution desktop wallpaper image each month.

Monthly Members-only Video

Silver and Gold members get access to a members-only video from Martin each month, covering a topic that will help to take your photography to the next level. We will also run polls in the member community to learn what you’d like to learn about, so you get a say in what we present.

MBP Pro Gold is a Mentorship!

Gold members enter into a mentorship so in addition to the Bronze and Silver benefits, you get a one-hour consultation session with Martin each quarter in which you have a choice of having a 10 to 15 photo portfolio review or a 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 Gold 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 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 one consultation session per quarter, as a mentee, you can also book up to two more consultation sessions at a 15% discount ($100/hour or $68/40 minutes), subject to availability of open consultation slots.

Mentorships Limited to 10 Mentees

The Gold 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%, 10% or 15% Discounts by Level

Bronze members get a 5% discount on all fine art prints or digital products or consultation sessions purchased from this website, which Silver members get a 10% discount, and Gold members get a 15% discount. (Gold members get the 15% off any additional consultation bought during a quarter. One session per quarter is included in the mentorship.)

MBP Commitment

Your membership comes with a commitment from Martin Bailey Photography K.K. to provide a minimum of 10 article PDF eBooks every quarter for all membership levels. If we release more posts, you’ll get more PDFs.

Note that for the occasional regular public video podcasts that we do, unless there are a lot of notes or images to share, there will not be a companion PDF document.

Silver and Gold members will get access to three members-only videos per quarter.

Payment Schedule

Payment is by subscription paid quarterly (every three months). You can cancel your subscription at any time and keep your PDF articles and any desktop wallpaper that you downloaded with an active membership.

Access to members-only videos and the members’ community requires an active subscription and therefore ceases on cancellation of your subscription.

There are no refunds for early cancellation of membership. You will simply not be charged again.
