Texas School of Photography

Welcome to this page devoted to my training provisions at the world famous “Texas School of Photography”.

This will be my third year teaching at this amazing event and the 2012 dates are 30th April through 4th May 2012. So what am I teaching? Well, its an innovative program covering three distinct subject areas and has been designed as a pre-amble for further intensive study. So here goes……

“Let’s shoot with Passion for Fashion”.Pin Up and Retro in the world of Boudoir; Seniors to Young Professionals in vogue and Sexy Couture Bridal”This one week school is designed as an intensive precursor to three individual programs under the three distinct headings.1. Pin Up and Retro in the world of Boudoir Photography2. Seniors to Young Professionals in vogue3. Sexy Couture Bridal

Pin Up and Retro in the world of Boudoir Photography

It cannot be argued that women of many shapes and sizes feel less comfortable with their bodies as the years advance. To be photographed in nothing more than their underwear and often less is a less than comfortable experience in other than the hands of the best female practitioners. Even women who are comfortable may have certain ‘issues’ with traditional boudoir photography.

It is unquestionable that there are some superb exponents of ‘Boudoir’ photography as we know it and many modern marketing takes, continue to make this a popular sector of our industry. But to make this genre accessible to a growing audience, perhaps a new or re-worked twist is needed?

Hence, “Pin Up & Retro” provide two viable options, so here it is, my first intensive training program to help you meet the needs of this fun, creative and challenging medium.

In this one week program you will learn how to:

  • Light in a theatrical way in Studio for that old ‘Hollywood Pin Up’ feel
  • Use locations effectively
  • Acquiring props and making the best use of them
  • Poses that count
  • Process your images for that all important retro feel
  • Output options
  • How to sell Pin Up & Retro sessions
  • Designing a price list for profit
  • Sales & Marketing ideas

The ‘FASHION FOTO FACTORY’ or How to shoot Seniors to Young Professionals in vogue 

Once in a while we are all looking for some kind of innovation to simply make a difference in a universal market, and if possible, expand it. The FASHION FOTO FACTORY is all about creating “Iconic Images” and is a proven concept that can grow your business and add a fresh, exciting and contemporary edge to keep your enthusiasm for photography alive and provide much needed profits in any economy.

The market is significantly wider than the traditional US Seniors area as it fully expands the age range up to early 30′s to take account of upwardly mobile young professionals of both sexes who are personal appearance and ‘fashion aware’. Clearly there is a much higher level of disposable income among young professionals just waiting to be accessed by a ‘smart’ professional photographer able to respond to their needs.

In this one week program you will learn how to:

  • Understand the FASHION FOTO FACTORY concept and how to apply it
  • ICONIC IMAGES – Examples at our fingertips
  • Create effective ‘Studio Sets’
  • Light for drama and effect in Studio
  • Source and use locations as an option
  • Acquiring props and making the best use of them
  • Poses that count
  • Processing your images
  • Output options
  • How to sell “Fashion Foto Factory” sessions
  • Designing a price list for profit
  • Sales & Marketing ideas
