Editorial Portraiture
with Peter Yang
March 20 - March 23, 2013

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

The photographer who can consistently produce original and exceptional editorial portraits is much in demand. This workshop examines what it takes to produce portraits that are original in conception and unexpected in execution. Guided by Peter’s real world experience and acumen, you learn how to interact with your subjects—be they a businessperson, celebrity, or your next-door neighbor—to provocatively and insightfully reveal the most about their true character.

During our four days together, you learn techniques for approaching your subject, and discover the creative processes that are available for producing unique and compelling editorial portraits. We walk through the decision-making process for a photo shoot and review key details such as the all-important concepting during pre-production and location scouting. You learn how to create expressive yet natural lighting through a combination of strobes and ambient light. Peter shares his experience with the commercial aspects of the editorial business, such as contracts, invoices, and syndicating. In addition, we cover strategies for successful marketing of your work and how to distinguish and differentiate yourself in a competitive environment.

Daily explorations in the studio or on location in Santa Fe offer practice in working with existing light or with lighting the subject to create the evocative moment. Assignment images are edited and critiqued daily.

COLLEGE CREDIT AVAILABLE (Course Level 400): For an additional fee, participants may elect to receive one hour of college credit through Hastings College upon successful completion of this workshop.
