MASTERCLASSES

Courses available in Johannesburg / Pretoria, Cape Town and Durban.

 

Page through a magazine, see a picture that you like, post a message asking if anyone wants to shoot. I’ve watched many talented creatives waste years on this path. My masterclass courses are designed to help in areas where you need it most. Please note that these are masterclasses, you need an existing knowledge of photography as we will not address basic technical aspects.

THE FACE

Do you know anything about makeup? Do you understand why a look is not working for you in a shoot? Do you know that makeup as much as light changes a face?

Understanding your styling team and keeping control of your shoot space will help you enjoy the confidence of the person sitting to be photographed. You are the leader in this space, act like one. Without clear instruction as to what you envision as an end result you’ve lost the edge before your shoot begins. Together with a professional, published stylist we will discuss the teams shoot dynamic. You will learn more about their art and how to apply this knowledge to get the most out of your shoot.
