Face to Face – A workshop for better understanding makeup artistry
The February event for the PGPG is a unique approach to understanding the world of makeup artistry and glamour. Because the talents of our MUA’s and other supporting artists are so important with making a good image, this event will offer several MUA’s the chance to lead a class on their specific approach to makeup artistry.
The presenting MUA’s will each have one model to be their canvas, allowing them both to create any image that they feel highlights their strengths as an MUA (i.e. cart blanche on creativity). They will do this, however, in front of the group, so that the audience can see the entire evolution from start to finish. Discussion about MUA techniques and topics will be encouraged throughout the process, in order to give things more of an informal feel, and allow everyone to share ideas and techniques. When the MUA’s have completed working on their respective model, the attending photographers will have the opportunity to photograph them, giving both the MUAs and models added images for their portfolios.
This event is open to anyone wanting to learn what makes mua’s tick, and space is limited. Please grab a slot if you are interested. Extra chairs will be set up for the watch and learn portion, and several shooting pods will be ready once the models are finished.
As an added perk, we will be giving away a few copies of the book "The Makeup Artist Handbook" by Gretchen Davis. Focal Press is a great sponsor, and their book selection is very broad. All members get a 30% discount when ordering, so please check their link (see sponsor section) if you are looking to build your photography or media library. Most of their books are available in print or e-book format.
And...we will have one BlackRapid camera sling to give out to one lucky photographer who signs up. This is a $60+ value of itself, and if you have not yet seen these being used, you will likely want one when you do. And you could win one just for attending the event...
Also...giving away a copy of the Photographer's Legal Guide by Carolyn Wright (electronic copy) to one of the signed up participants.
