Master Your Smartphone Camera by Joao Carlos

Yes this is a big ad for Sandisk and yes it's an uncut webinar that is an hour long but if you are in post production and want to fill the air with something other than the sound of your teeth grinding and knee bouncing, then there are some great tidbits of information riddled through out this video.

Smartphone cameras are the new master tool for capturing the moment. In this webinar, world-renowned photographer Joao Carlos shares what you need to know to use your phone camera like a pro—from exposures to accessories, taking stunning selfies to leveraging social media apps.

And to all of you who are fortunate enough to live in or near the NYC/NJ area, Joao Carlos has come back home for a one-day step by step workshop on how to create a successful fashion/beauty editorial.  Working with editors, deadlines, assignments, and freelance projects are just some of the thing Joao will go over with you along with discussions on preparing for the future and impending changes in the industry.  So if you are interested in getting down with Joao and learning how it is he does what he does then book your spot.


Explore the fundamentals of Fashion, Beauty, and Editorial Photography in the studio through a series of presentations, discussion, and hands-on training and shooting.  With beautiful models and Joao's professional make-up artist/hair stylist, you'll also review the basic ideas, concepts, and components of creative storytelling in fashion photography.  Understanding how to communicate with your team and your model is fundamental in creating creative imagery that sells fashion and lifestyles. You will walk away with your own unique fashion, beauty, or lifestyle images to use in your portfolio!

Topics include: 
- Conceptualizing and Planning
- Working with your Creative Team

- Stylists 
- Model Casting 
- Make-up and Hair
