Learn from the artists of the past to add inspiration and timelessness into your work!
In this workshop we begin by exploring the influential role that style plays in creating unique interpretations of themes that have been explored throughout time. You will see examples of how Lindsay and Chris have taken similar concepts and inspiration while creating dramatically different results.
Next, we will take you through how to analyze influential works of art to discern key visual elements and techniques to add to your own photography. Whether looking at the work of a painter, an artistic movement, or a movie, you’ll learn how to look at lighting, wardrobe, background and other elements you can infuse into your own imagery.
Together we take you through examples of how we plan our own shoots, build mood boards, gather a creative team, find wardrobe/props, build backgrounds, and all the other elements that go into a successful timeless shoot. This creative process will vary from production to production and with each photographer, but we discuss important processes that will help you bring your own shoots to life.
Before each of the 12 concepts we explore over the two days, we provide our inspiration and the production/mood boards involved in the creation of each set. The production value of these sets are truly unparalleled– we are working with some of the best creative artists in the world to create these striking results that truly will be unforgettable.
Our workshop is held in beautiful Historic Downtown Jersey City, which is minutes away from the Holland Tunnel and Manhattan as well as only 20 minutes from Newark International Airport.
