This course introduces students to the business of fashion photography. Students will learn how to develop concepts, pitch ideas effectively, create a budget, and build a team of stylists, make-up artists, and assistants for an actual shoot. Students are guided through what equipment to use, from lighting to lenses, how to get the most out of a model, how to scout for great locations, and how to digitally enhance images after the shoot. This course is taught by Erin Seaman, Photo Editor of FASHION magazine. For research purposes, it would be helpful for students to have access to a smartphone, tablet or laptop. WiFi would be provided. Please note, some classes will be held off campus.
After enrolling in a course, please allow up to 5 hours for your student data to migrate to Canvas. Please note that courses may fill up early or be cancelled due to low enrollment. Students are encouraged to register early, at least ten (10) days prior to the start date of the course.
