This course will introduce students to contemporary portrait and fashion photography. Students will learn the complete workflow of a professional shoot – from conception, to production, to realisation. Editorial portraits require the photographer to tell a story with the use of a single picture or a series of photographs. Contemporary fashion-photography on the other hand is about creating images that deal with identity, desire and belonging. Throughout this course, students will deal with these two categories. They will gain practical and theoretical knowledge and learn about imagination and creativity as well as using the technical equipment.
