Weddings Hands On Fashion - Superclass
Saturday 18th Jan 2014
Tower Wing Boardrooms 1

Places are going fast for this Superclass

Join Internationally acclaimed South African photographer, Brett Florens in this highly-focused Superclass. This Superclass will cover wedding photography inspired by fashion and commercial photography. Brett believes that wedding photography can be very cliche with regurgitated poses and cheesy scenarios.

Brett's wedding photography targets a fashion conscious market, who appreciate editorial styled images. They are the type of clients that read magazines such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, Harper's Bazaar and the likes.

This Superclass will equip you with the skills to

1 Construct poses and composition with an editorial feel.
2 Understand your target market.
3 Use lighting styles and techniques used by top Fashion Photographers.
4 Articulate your vision to your client.
5 Create images reflecting your artistic intent.
