International pet photographer Kristie Lee is offering a unique experience for photographers who love photographing people and pets. In this one day workshop, you will get the opportunity to photograph real people and real pets using the environment to enhance the look a feel of your portraits. This workshop includes a copy of Kristie’s new posing guide, “ Posing People and Pets”, so you will get the chance to use this guide on location in New York and get one on one support from Kristie to perfect the poses and ask questions. I guarantee you will leave with not only newly acquired skills and techniques, but also feel inspired with ideas and knowledge that will take your portraits to the next level.
We will begin in the morning, by meeting in a Brooklyn Cafe with an introduction and review of the posing guide. Discussing basic lighting, backgrounds, posing and creative process. Then will meet up with our first models / clients and spend 2-3 hours photographing them in an urban environment using the available architecture around the streets as inspiration.
After breaking for lunch, we will regroup and travel into Manhattan. Everyone will have the opportunity to scout the location before the models arrive and discuss things that have or haven’t been working for you on location shoots, also ask any questions you have around posing, lighting, background etc… Again we will shoot for another 2-3 hours with the dogs and their owners. We will be focusing on creating stylized portraits that also show the deep connection animals share with their owners.
At the end of the day you have the option of attending a group dinner with Kristie and the team to extend the conversation of the workshop and get to know each other over food & drinks! We encourage group networking during the workshop and many students leave to connected in the business world.
