It's a wrap 3
It's been great conducting It's a wrap.. I'm about to be conducting yet another class starting in early Jan and counting for 8 consecutive weeks.
Course contents includes briefly like this..
1: Feel & touches of people photography, Why People Photography, who's suited, who's not?
2: Lighting techniques vs outdoors lightings
3: Stylist assisted shoot vs self assisted wardrobe in a commercial shoot
4: Quality vs Quantity photography
5: Planning for Photography Portfolio
6: The route, making money out of end consumers, or commercial ad agency
7: Finding a creative team that works for you
8: Job: Talents or models?
9: Equipment - Needs and wants, what you really need
10: Different ways to sell your photography
11: 4 Group test shoot
Roughly, above are the topics. As I prepare the finer details to the course structure and notes. I'll roll this course off if I get enough participants though.. That's a total of 8 sessions. Course fee will be SGD 800.00 per person... Only to the maximum of 10 pax.
This course is targetted at people who's got sick of their day jobs, and would like to think that photography would be the next advancement route... It also would help those who're into finer details of photography and not wanting to advance into this trade, but would like to be professional but still a weekend shooter... I have had beginners before in this class who has benefited too. but of course the beginners did more reading up and double up with assignments and more homework.. To those who's enquiring about whether you can start this class as a beginner, I would say yes, but just a fair bit of opening up your vision than you thought you had...
Many asked me if this course would have been a conflict to what I'm currently doing. I think not, simply because the trade of people photography relies on many elements, PR, professional on photography, a strong sense of leadership... Get one wrong, and everything screws... This course teaches, but everybody's route is different...
So I'm asking, take some time, think about this course, and let the names roll... I did adjust the price up to cover my running cost, I'm sure if you use your calculator and calculate the payouts, you would know what I've left is mediocre, just wanna do it good for those really serious enthusiast.. Some of you miss out the earlier course, see if you can make this one...
For those who need to know what I've been doing, pls refer to this thread:
