Take part in a fashion and portraiture photo shoot experience, from lighting set up, to model directing, both in the studio and on location.

Become inspired with Joao Carlos

Day one: In the studio

Includes lighting demonstrations and photo shoot using models, exploring key-topics such as creative lighting, model direction, focused on close beauty portraiture.

The shoot will include a variety of sets and different lighting set ups to demonstrate portraiture styles focused on beauty.

As the group size is small each attendee will have their own time with the model to take their own photos, or they can choose to follow the instructors guidance.

Day two: On location

Working with outdoor scenarios with one or more models, exploring lighting set ups including a variety of strobes and natural light for Fashion Photography.

This workshop will give you renewed inspiration & creativity, confident communication skills to direct your models, and springboard your photography journey into a professional arena.

You are familiar with aperture, shutter, ISO and understand how these work together to create a correct exposure.

You shoot in Aperture or Shutter Priority modes and can use the basic features on your digital camera confidently

You would like more opportunities to practise and consolidate what you already know and also to stretch yourself a little further both creatively and technically.
