Model Portfolios: a photographer's workshop

  • Nov 10, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Model Portfolios: a photographer's workshop is a class for photographers who are just beginning to work with models. 

We will discuss what models need from a portfolio photo session and learn how to do each of those shots. Instruction on how to direct a model will be a part of the workshop experience.

Each student will be coached through a short session as part of the class. 

Model, makeup artist and styling by a local designer are included in the fee for this class.

Location and Setting
We will work in a studio setting and natural light depending on weather.


Register early and get the class for only $25.


Steve Robertson has been photographing modeling portfolios since 2002.

    Sorry gang. I had the releases scanned but they weren't on the memory card when I got home. No idea where they went, but I'll do it again tomorrow.

    Any chance to see sample shots? I may try to be at the next one, but to draw not shoot. Since I require models to hold poses for 3 to 5 minutes (or a bit longer) it would be during their breaks, I think. Depends on how you direct things during the session.

      Actually that would have worked very well. We had models ready and waiting. Now that we've run it once and I have had a chance to see it in action, I think it would be a very good event for you.

    Great event, the few photos that survived my editing process are ready to send whenever.
    One color and one B/W version of what I felt was the best exposure, my post processing skills are not the best.

      The models are Cassandra Etherington, Dennis Tudos and Emily Rose Ruth. The class format is group instruction. 1) Headshots, 2) 3/4 or full body. The second section is a themed Hollywood Golden Age shoot with Ava Gardner and Lauren Bacall as inspiration.

    I look forward to learning more about this since this is my first official foray into studios, portraits and modeling applications for photos.
