The beautiful city of Barcelona is often featured as a background for the fashion spreads in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Elle. With its exquisite light and breathtaking surroundings, Barcelona is a perfect setting for learning about fashion and portrait photography.

In this class, the concentration will be on shooting techniques for fashion models and portraiture in a controlled setting with a variety of lighting set-ups. When shooting on location, the challenges will become immediately clear and participants will gain confidence and experience in working around these challenges. Students will learn how to work with a creative team and the aspects of producing professional fashion shoot while reacting quickly to ever-changing lighting situations. Choosing the right lens for the picture and the appropriate background for the shot is essential to creating iconic photograph. You’ll learn to find good light and to recognize it when you see it. We will cover the various techniques used when shooting models—using available light, reflectors, translucent softeners and portable strobe lights.

Learning to work efficiently as a team on location is not only useful, but also important if you are to be successful. We will work to help you begin creating a professional fashion portfolio. Consider this week in Barcelona as a career exploration—an opportunity to spend 10 days in a welcoming city learning, photographing, wandering and relaxing.
