Joe will share his entire process for creating his unique fashion portraits. Beginning with idea and concept generation to planning and execution, Joe will also cover finding models and makeup artists as well as his trademark lighting techniques, posing and directing.

You will be creating and photographing your own unique fashion portraits with Joe as your mentor and assistant.

This workshop is ideal for photographers with a basic understanding of lighting who want to refine their techniques, learn how to consistently execute a successful shoot and take their portfolio to the next level.

  • Wrap-Up

Day 2 is a full day of shooting – you will spend most of the day on your feet.. Be sure to dress comfortably and choose comfortable footwear.
