With JUSTIN WILLIAM LIN and PATRICK IBANEZ

Becoming a fashion photographer can be a glamorous gig, but it’s a notoriously difficult industry to break into. As in most artistic careers, only the very top performers get the recognition to become an established name and book the biggest and best-paying clients. But if you’re starting out and you love fashion, you’re probably looking for a way in, and fortunately there’s more ways to get a foot in the door than ever.

In this seminar, we’ll be discussing the overall landscape of fashion photography and how it’s changed over time. We’ll talk about the ins and outs of assisting, developing your style, portfolio reviews, and provide valuable tips and insights gained from years of experience shooting fashion editorial and advertising campaigns. We’ll also break down some of the new methods of getting noticed, like using social media to carve out your audience and increase your visibility.
