ONSITE: Fashion Photography (Ages 15–18)

Photographing clothing requires creativity, technique, and attention to detail. We will explore fashion photography from its origin to today. Students will be guided in a variety of camera, lighting, and editing techniques that fashion photographers utilize to make garments look gorgeous. Students will learn about the elements that go into organizing a fashion shoot, from call sheets to contacting hair and makeup artists, to sending images to magazines. Students will organize, plan, and conduct their own “campaign” style shoot over the course of the class.

Special Notes

  • Students will need a DSLR Camera, thumb drive or hard drive (hard drive recommended)
