During the workshop, you’ll get to learn about all the basics a professional photographer needs, about fashion and it’s theory, how to develop your aesthetics, how to create mood-boards and the importance of doing so. You will learn how to put together a concept and communicate it with your team on the shoot, how to read a mood-board from a client and know what you need to deliver.
You will also have to opportunity to practice on a shoot with professional models, stylists and make up artists who will help you get a high-end result and the chance to discuss your work and review the work of other photographers.
Join me in a highly focused and in-depth post-production course. This program will specifically cover the art of retouching fashion and beauty images, as well as imparting professional techniques to streamline your workflow.
In conclusion, you will gain invaluable knowledge about the business aspects of fashion/commercial photography, including critical topics such as copyright, usage rights and invoicing.
This information is crucial for success in the industry and will help you to operate your business with confidence.
