We have an absolutely spectacular production set for March 28, 29 & 30, 2013 in Los Angeles! I have booked the Creative Direcor for L'Oreal DaRico Jackson as our Celebrity Hair Stylist, along with celebrity wardrobe stylist Arianna Sinclair, and Celebrity Makeup artist Uzmee Krakovszki, who is by far the best makeup artist in LA and styled the attached images. We are casting models from FORD, Wilhelmina, ELITE, LA Models, NEXT, Vision, Sirena, Models International and Brand. After receiving casting options from the top agencies, I will post my top choices on the meetup page. I really love to have the photographers that take part in the workshops get really involved in the production and I ask you to give your own suggestions on model choices! As well as art direction on the shoot!
Day 1: We will be at one of the most incredible Studios in Los Angeles - Solar Studios as our first day location. We are Art Directing and Designing your fashion story that you will be photographing on the second day. We will go into Portfolio Cohesion, Editing, Post Production, Retouching, and each student receives consultation from our Expert Panel. We will be going into detail about the business of photography, networking, marketing self-promotion, maximizing usage rights and profits as a photographer and taking your career to the highest level.
Day 2: - The second day is focused on the "Portfolio - In - Day" concept where you focus on Location Lighting Techniques to create stunning Beauty & Fashion Advertising imagery for major designers. You will have the opportunity to photograph a commercially marketable fashion and beauty photography portfolio in a day! Working with top agency represented fashion models, the very best wardrobe, hair and makeup artists, prop stylists and an incredible location, you will tell a dynamic fashion story through your photographs while you learn advanced location lighting production and work with over $150,000 in high end lighting equipment. The spreads below were from workshops that have been published in the August Issue of The Los Angeles Fashion Magazine, along with an entire feature story about these photography workshops that I direct in LA, Miami, NY, Chicago and Milan, Italy.
Day 3: The Third Day is focused on Portfolio Cohesion, Editing, Post-Production, Advanced Retouching and even have consultation from a world renowned retoucher. In the past we have had Dennis Dunbar, the master retoucher for all of the Harry Potter Covers, Transformers, as well as many of the major motion pictures that grossed over $100 Million in the last 10 years. We will have either Dennis, or someone of his caliber give advanced retouching lessons. We will edit through and be critique what you have photographed to create the very best high end professional portfolio. This is another aspect of the three day intensive that can really push you to your potential, as we will have time to go through what you have shot and make corrections and suggestions to maximize your imagery.
