For BOTH Models and Photographers
Saturday, May 18th – 9am through 4pm
Presented by Freelance Model Wendy Lee and Photographer Mike McCarthy
This full day workshop features sessions where both models and photographers will work both independently and together throughout the day to help build a solid foundation in posing, attitude and professionalism for those models and photographers looking to work in the glamour industry.
Joint sessions include Model and Photographer Safety, Posing Do’s and Don’ts which includes a mini 16-page custom booklet with special example photos and descriptions, Model Releases and how they protect both parties, Professional Etiquette and bring your digital or print portfolio for a personal Portfolio review and we’ll even touch on some of the “business” of modelling and photography.
A sample page from the posing guide provided to all attendees of the workshop.
Independent sessions include Basic Glamour Make-Up (with a licensed MUA) and Camera Awareness for models and Basic Studio Lighting and Light Modifiers for photographers.
Each model will have the opportunity to shoot with each of the photographers so everyone can strengthen the concepts from the sessions with real world practice in a 15-minute mini-session.
Each model will also have a short photo session with Mike McCarthy and receive a professional head shot and full body shot for their portfolio as well as a fully edited glamour photo (or two) on CD after the workshop.
Each participant will receive a gift bag from our sponsors featuring valuable samples and discounts. A complete list will be made available prior to the workshop.
