FASHION STYLING & PHOTOGRAPHY INTENSIVE
This dynamic intensive fashion course trains participants in the main technical and theoretical concepts related to fashion photography, shooting, style and image. For those with limited time available, this course focuses on visual communication investigating the many different aspects of fashion styling, using image to persuade and inspire, and create an emotional response. Fashion stylists play a pivotal role in the success of a fashion collection, a brand or a product. They know how to emphasis style and image, and ‘talk’ through a complex mix of contemporary, cultural and aesthetic references, in order to present a captivating, innovative and effective campaign. Their work must be both strategic and creative: attentive to the historical context and culture of fashion, to current trends and developments in the industry, and yet still keep inline with a client’s brief or brand identity.
On this course participants are introduced to the key processes in creating and developing professional photo shoots, understanding how to interpret the latest trends in fashion through lighting, accessories, poses, and props, translating style in a contemporary way alongside technical and aesthetic aspects of photography. The Fashion Styling & Photography Intensive course looks at editing techniques and publishing for fashion, learning how to manipulate and edit photographic work for a professional styling proposal. Research into the interaction between fashion, design and art further enhances participant’s knowledge of trends and current fashion aesthetics, while a look at key historical moments in fashion and image, as well as art and dress, assists in creative thinking, looking at styling from different contexts and cultures, in order to produce striking and innovative image proposals.
