Seminar | Workshop
Our Seminar / workshops aim to cover everything in a typical fashion shoot and more – bringing the experience and knowledge we have gained over the years. Each year or month, we will host a number of workshops worldwide – each one with its own unique content and a selected renowned photographer. The locations we choose are the carefully chosen for each workshop – whether it’s shooting on location and in an unusual location.
At each event, we will work with professional agency represented models, wardrobe stylists, and hair and make-up artists who are currently working in the industry; we feel this is an incredibly important asset for workshops to have working creative’s who are passionate about the imagery they want to create. The creative team are there on the day to collaborate and are open to any questions you may have. We encourage questions and often extend the conversation over a casual dinner after the event.
The seminar will be a preview of what the workshop is, which means we can have up 100-200+ people at the seminar. It’ll be 3 hours long. The first two hours will be dedicated to shooting on site. We will have one model on set and shoot the model in front of the audience. We will briefly touch on retouching and editing techniques. We will dedicate 30-45 minutes to Q & A.
The workshop attendee numbers will be small and exclusive, which means we have time to focus on individuals and cater to every photographer’s needs; whether you are an amateur, an industry professional or even specialize in an entirely different field of photography altogether.
We are confident that after the two days the attendees will leave with new ideas, knowledge and most of all – inspiration and guidance to put into their own practice.

Schedule Day 1: Day one will begin in the morning, where we will cover studio lighting, posing and creative direction in a keynote. The attendee will also have a chance to meet the styling team and ask them questions with a group Q&A. After breaking for lunch, we will then regroup and everyone will have the opportunity to shoot in the studio/ designated location with our professional models. We will be sharing many different lighting techniques/tricks that you use in various client assignments. We aim to guarantee that our attendee will leave that day with not only newly acquired skills and techniques, but also creative new shots for their portfolio!

- Shoot Outs- Small groups. 4-5 Students Per Group/ Model

Schedule Day 2: We will reconvene on day two with an overview of the day before, followed by a group portfolio review with where the attendee will have the opportunity to learn what image will get their work noticed either by their future clients, publishers or both. We will also teach about business and marketing model – covering getting published, pitching to clients, social media tips, and strategies. In this segment, we hope to clear those confusing questions you’ve had about the photography/fashion photography industry so that you’ll leave with new ideas. We hope to re-invent attendee marketing strategy.
The second portion of the day will be a retouching segment – We will be uncovering some truths about retouching by sharing before and afters. At the end of this workshop, the attendee will come away with a great body of work:
