This Masterclass with James should be seen an experience and not a workshop. We are creating a beautifully structured Fine Art Fashion Editorial production which will on this occasion be on location. You will become part of “The Creed” experience, crafted for photographers to get the very best out of their photography. “The Creed” will create sublime one off fashion shoot experiences. These shoots really push the boundaries in creative concepts and opportunity for the photographers that become part of “The Creed”  gaining an immersive shoot experience with James, The Creed team, models and locations.

A super opportunity to shoot original conceptual images for your portfolio and gain great experiences from working in a superb location with The Creed creative team. As part of this particular masterclass, all the photographers who join us on these courses gain access to our Film Production opportunity.

Using our Red Epic Dragon Video Camera you will have access to shooting small cinematic video clips from each set to create your own mini Vimeo or Youtube trailer, We will have a film director shooting clips with James who will be the D.O.P for this (Director of Photography) and guide the lighting set up so each photographer gains small clips of footage which will be collated into a small trailer for them to download and use for their own promotion.

The mood board is important and we will run through this and see how, clothing style and the makeup matches the looks we intent to shoot on the day. Whilst the team begin the process of making up the model and styling them, James will run through the basics of the lights and look for the morning session shoot and will cover the light control of the day and how this can be interpreted in different ways and explain why the light matters in the types of looks your are going for but keeping continuity through each shot. We will take a few questions and answers at this point.

The aim of this experience is for you the photographer to dive right in and the shoot with the confidence knowing that James is close to hand to offer advice and support in learning how the light is working with model and show how working with the model is important to get the best out of them and your day. James mentoring for your session will help you work up your confidence and model direction to capture excellent imagery.
