Do you want to improve your studio photography or, better yet, replicate fashion magazines like VOGUE, ELLE, Glamour, or Harper’s Bazaar? Perfect. This class will guide you through a one-light fashion shoot from start to finish. And not only will we capture images that essentially replicate most of these editorials, but we’ll also do so comfortably in our homes with a total price less than that of a used DSLR. Yup. Quite surprising. But, yes, quite true and very possible. And by the end of this class, you’ll understand this medium and produce stunning magazine-quality images at home.
Why Learn Fashion Photography?
Are you excited when you see images in top Fashion brands like VOGUE, Glamour, ELLE, InStyle, and Harper’s Bazaar? But, at the same time, you’re not exactly sure where to begin, and you also don’t have the bizarre budget required for these productions? Great, it sounds like you’re in the perfect place.
Fashion photography is the pinnacle of portraiture, being both the most creative and lucrative medium in our business. Most fashion editorials take a small army of creatives along with genuine innovative thinking to produce. But, thankfully, the results pay off, and they can stand the test of time while captivating millions worldwide. Fashion pushes the bounds. And it’s a medium that many portrait photographers admire. But, it’s not one without its challenges.
In comes this class.
