- Also in this DVD I will take you through studio lighting and how to set the studio lighting to get different lighting styles. In studio photography I also cover product photography.
Studio photography is one of my favourite types of photography. why? Because I can completely control the light. After all photography is just recording light. With natural light you can get superbly finished images granted but in the studio you can play to your heart's content. Subtracting light to spectral highlights it's a lot of fun and you would be surprised at how quick you can learn something that has always been a mystery to most photographers.

I know that you will really enjoy seeing one of the latest studios to be built and how to use it!

Even though you may be a good Photographer already, we show you the little hints, tips, tricks and techniques that will make your photographs look professional. - You'll discover trade secrets that Professional Photographers don't want you to know on how to get these magic costly shots.
Black & white portraits are by far the best portraits in the world, why? Because they are timeless due to the fact that they don't have colour in them which can date a photo very quickly. I do this so that the image will not date. You wouldn't have any idea if I shot this yesterday or ten years ago. Another great thing about black & white photography is that people in colour all have different complexions and the difference in black and white compared to colour is that B&W evens things up.
In this DVD I will show you how to take the different styles of portrait photography including 3D style and situational portraits. I have taken portraits from my own family right up to the Prime Minister so I'm sure you'll enjoy this DVD and be able to get really great black and white and colour images. DVD 6: Fashion Photography If you want to learn how to do fashion photography this DVD will get you on the right track. I give you all the tips you need on just how to do a fashion shoot. Fashion photography is fun and exciting to do once you know how.
- Come with me on a live shoot and see the techniques that I use to get superb images. With a little practice of these techniques you will be able to organize and do your own fashion shoot.
A fashion shoot can be a lot of fun and there is certainly a lot of energy generated with a small team all pulling together to get the shoot happening. If you are thinking of a career in fashion photography you must start by learning all of the equipment and what each is used for. A fashion shoot does take a small team and it's getting the right team together that will produce a fun day and a smooth flowing day. Remember you don't have to have experts to get a great result.
So what's involved in a fashion photography shoot? First off are the models. Getting experienced models that know how to pose and understand how to get into the emotion of the pose that you require is of great importance. Hair and makeup. It's far better to have one doing hair and one doing makeup even though both can usually be done by one person however time is of the essence. If you have to wait 45 minutes for hair and then another 45 minutes for makeup by the one person your model has just cost you a lot of money just to sit there. You keep swapping models form hair to make up while you shoot the other.
Wardrobe is important. Always have someone who looks after the wardrobe especially someone who can iron! A stylist can be used on a fashion shoot or another name for them is an art director. Many times I shoot without either. My customers know my style and let me do my thing.
Developing your style is important. Why? Because you are hired for your style. I shoot magazine covers and you don't expect to get the same magazine every month. Magazines need a fresh style to keep their customers happy. In this course I go through how to develop your own style.
