Rockwell Harwood, Creative Director of Details Magazine and Brian Smith will be presenting the anatomy of a magazine fashion shoot as we take workshop participants through The DETAILS of Fashion Photography as a part of the NYC Fotoworks on Saturday, October 30th in the freshly renovated downtown Manhattan Sand Box Studio. Rockwell and I will demonstrate the collaboration between creative director and photographer on our magazine fashion shoot model shoot sponsored by Sony. After the shoot, photographers will be able to sit down with Rockwell and learn what makes a great fashion image. Photographers are encouraged to bring their own work so that they can receive critique from the industry’s leading creative director.
They will be followed by Chris Dougherty, Director of Photography of People Magazine, who’ll discuss Editorial Photography in a Post-Print World, a hot topic on the minds of many editorial photographers.
NYC Fotoworks begins the three-day events hosting portfolio reviews with top magazine photo editors and creative directors on Thursday, October 28 and Friday, October 29. This is an incredibly efficient way of getting in to see the editors in two days who you’d have a hard time getting in to see if you two years. It’s a great way for emerging photographers to get their foot in the door and for established photographers to catch up with their existing clients in a very time efficient manner.
NYC Fotoworks organizers Marc Asnin and Joshua Herman explain: “We’ve gone and interviewed some of the best in the photo business, including directors of photography, gallery managers, editors, and agents to give photographers an idea what the professionals are looking for in a great portfolio review.
