The fashion photography Intensive course offered by the school of photography John Kaverdash goes beyond theory and, after an introduction about studio lighting and shooting techniques, students are given the chance of using industry professionals to train and improve their skills.
The fashion photography intensive course covers topics such as basics and rules of fashion photography, how professionals interact among each other like make-up artists and stylists. This recreates a professional environment, both within the studio and outdoors.
This setting creates an important and experiential journey and allows young professionals to gain confidence in managing the set, by using high-quality equipment and by directing and interacting with models under the guidance of professionals who already work in the fashion industry.
Students are also introduced to marketing strategies and ways of entering the fashion photography world.
Prerequisites: students must be able to use a reflex camera manually and have a basic knowledge of lighting and photography.
