Shoot your own Epic 2018 AvantGarde Fashion Calendar with James and The Creed

A chance to shoot an Epic 2018 calendar for yourself with a top team of creatives and with the expert guidance of your shoot director James Nader who is one of the UK’s top Fashion and Avant Garde Photographers


This is a personal project for James Nader who is absolutely thrilled at shooting his own 2018 Calendar with the help of top styling and makeup. He is willing to share the unique opportunity with a very small select group of photographers. This seven day cinematic shooting experience will be on location in Fuerteventura, Canary Islands. It is a themed Fine Art Avante Garde styled Calendar, this is a unique opportunity to work alongside James whilst he guides you in shooting your own version of the calendar. You will be in the heart of the action as you capture picture after picture for your own calendar. James will give guidance and mentor your shoot time with the model and the team ensuring you get access to the set ups created which are unique to this shoot and location. You will be participating in no ordinary production but working alongside James and his creative vision, giving you, the photographer, a unique and valuable shooting experience, whilst crafting wonderfully epic cinematic images. Also creating your own fabulous calendar and Fineart images.

After the amazing success of the Lambertz calendar where James ventured into the depths of Europe shooting an epic 27 day campaign with the likes of Dita Von Teese and Petra Nemcova. Which featured over 20 images captured in over 12 countries with the most beautiful and eccentric looking models. James has turned this success into a truly remarkable photographic opportunity for a small group of photographers to join him on location at one of the more rugged Canary islands Fuerteventura with its world famous beaches, balmy temperatures, crystal clear seas and beautifully eroded volcanic rock formations. James is creating another superb calendar masterpiece, working with a fabulous creative team but this time a lucky few can join him in creating 14 eccentric Avant Garde masterpieces. This once in a life’s time chance for any photographers who want to produce outstanding images and use for their own calendar.

This is an additional opportunity for the select few who join our experience in Fuerteventura to shoot original conceptual footage at high resolution for your own promotion on Vimeo or Youtube video. Each photographer attending will 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.

Most cameras these days shoot HD or 4K video, but how many photographers really create a fashion film, this is your chance to not only take your own clips with your own camera whilst shooting but a chance to really direct your own short trailer whilst on this experience. For this we will be bringing to the location for the 7 days the Red Epic camera shooting hi resolution 8K video.
