If you have a passion for fashion photography and you wish to build up your portfolio, or if you are looking for a creative experience, this program provides you with the technical and methodological skills to set up a fashion photoshoot in an outdoor location, in Rome, with a stunning backdrop, where thousands of years of history blend with the contemporary city. The teachers will guide you through the whole process, from the initial concept to the mood board, as well as the studio shooting, the choice of the external location, the organization of the creative team, and the management of the models, so that you can put together all the elements of the story you wish to tell.
Methodology and structure
Under the guidance of teaching staff, made up of well-known professionals, such as stylists, photographers, and make-up artists, and through both practical and theoretical lessons, you will become familiar with the international fashion industry and the equipment to be used, as well as with fashions and styles over the centuries. In addition, you will learn how to manage a creative team, choose the location, select the subjects, direct the shoot, and so on. During the first part, through a historical excursus into fashion photography and through a set of shoots in a studio, you will acquire the necessary cultural knowledge and technical skills. In the second part, you will deal with the development of the project, through the creation of a mood board and the choice of the location and of the clothes and accessories, so as to bring the static photoshoot to life. The program continues with the outdoor shoot, and lastly, with the selection of the photos, editing, and post-production operations.
Review, Editing, Portfolio
This last module guides you through the fundamental process of analyzing the material produced and selecting the best works and using digital editing depending on the objective to be achieved. The result is a portfolio organized with a clear visual storytelling and communication approach that fully testifies to the experience and the skills acquired for further professional development.
