Editorial Fashion on Location Workshop:
Ever wanted to go to NYC and shoot around the city with amazing editorial fashion models? Don't have the time/resources to do so? Well, now you can....I'm teaming up with Studio OC (who will be holding a groupshoot as well, keep your eyes peeled for that) and we're going to be taking over one of the major studio backlots/sets of New York City in approx 6 weeks.
This workshop will focus on how to work with an editorial fashion model on an shoot focusing on telling a story via mood at a the hub of the western fashion world: New York City streets. It will focus on getting an idea and inspiration from your surroundings and the available to you in order to develop a cohesive and logical sequence of images that will tell a story focusing greatly on mood and creative use of your environment and lighting.
What we'll cover:
This workshop will assume you have a basic understanding of shooting models outdoors on location using natural light. While I will be available to answer any basic questions, the workshop will focus on:
Creating mood and telling a story through images, be it a single image that draws the viewer to conclusion, or a series of images that act as a narrative. Directing models to get said mood, and sculpting shadows will be focused on here.
Utilizing the location to your advantage. Work with interesting composition and get more interesting photos with a sense of cinematic grandness by thinking outside the box.
We will go over what generally works and what doesn't and how to spot potential problems and find solutions to them before they become a hindrance.
Photographer/model ratio will be low (we usually end up with 2 or 2.5:1 ratio), allowing you to work on communicating with the models and developing a good working relationship with them. You won't have to worry about competing with a half dozen guys to get shots of a model here
Models: Models will be posted shortly, but they will be of the same quality (and quite possibly some of the same) as those in my portfolio. All real, agency repped, working models.
Capped at 10 for workshop, will consider adding a second one from 1-5 if there is enough interest.

Going to be moving the date, too many people have msg'd saying it's a busy weekend and asking if it can be done another date. Figure this'll give more time to save up as well for those that are on the fence. Will post details Monday or Tuesday. Looking at the following weekend (21st) or the one after that (28th). Just need to check availability with the studios first.
