CreativeLIVE's Fashion Week: Sept 11 - 15
Sept 11 - 12: Modeling 101 with Yoanna House
On Tuesday and Wednesday, America's Next Top Model winner Yoanna House will be live in the creativeLIVE studio sharing everything she knows about the modeling industry. As photographers, it's important to have a good understanding of what goes into modeling, how the industry works, and what sort of images are required for building a model's portfolio.
Some of the topics covered will be: what does it take to be a model, how should you prepare for your first photo shoot, how do you find an agent, how to stay healthy, and how to take care of your skin.
Yoanna will also talk about what distinguishes different fields of modeling such as runway, commercial, high fashion, and many more. If you are a photographer who takes fashion photography seriously, Yoanna's Modeling 101 course will be a great way to see the fashion world from the perspective of a model. The workshop is free to watch live, $79 to preorder the download, and $99 to download after it airs.
