In the words of a student of one of these wonderful fashion photography courses and fine art nude photography courses run by Bruce Smith. "Some things you just can’t learn from fashion or fine art nude photography How To Shoot Books, Youtube Videos or DVD's"
I could have bought all the fashion and figure photography books on Amazon, and not learned what I did in a few days with Bruce, which he himself learned from decades of successful work in the industry. In September 2015 I joined Bruce in a chateau near Bordeaux, France for a four-day, one-to-one workshop in ‘sensual fashion.’
These private one 2 one fashion or nudes photography master classes will have a bias to learning and shooting with available light fashion and fine art nudes and how to get the most and best out of it using Bruce's amazing lighting techniques of seeing it first then bouncing it, double bouncing it, reflecting it, diffusing it etc.
"The art of good fashion or nudes photography lighting is first to learn how to see the light and then put your subject into the best parts of the light.
De-constructing both available light and artificial light lighting so you build a better understanding of how fashion lighting techniques and fine art nude lighting techniques work.
Light has many textures as well as variations in intensity/density, Bruce will teach you his instinctive lighting techniques used in all of his own fashion and fine art nude photography images.
Bruce will also teach you his artificial fashion and nude photography lighting techniques to if and when they are needed.
You will also learn Bruce's rules of composition which he uses in his own commercial fashion photography or his fine art nude images to lead the viewers eye through a image, essential to sell fashion from the image.
It was once said during one of Bruce's talks during a photo expo, "Mr Smith, I notice that you break all of the rules that we have to adhere to but YOU DO IT SO WELL" Bruce's reply to this, "In order to break the rules you must first learn the rules and completely understand them.
Bruce will be teaching you how to break the rules well to.
Bruce's selection of preferred models to choose from for your one 2 one
Below is a personally selected group of models mostly from Paris and other EU cities that Bruce can highly recommend booking for your master class.
To book a one 2 one master class with a specific model scroll down to the enquiry form and tell us a few dates that work for you and we will check the availability of your chosen model. We would need to have a live talk to go through the details of your one 2 one. If there is a specific model not listed that you would like to work with send me a link to her pictures for consideration.
If you would like to shoot with the celebrity singer, presenter and model Chloe Jasmine Whichello this can be arranged by special appointment.
There are so many variables to be able to give you an accurate prices until Bruce has found out about your objectives for a one 2 one fashion or nudes photography master class.
Please fill out the form below with as much information about your photography training needs i,e what you would like to achieve during a master class also where you want to take your photography training, whether you are a professional, semi pro, an advanced, intermediate or beginner photographer, if you wish to become a professional at a certain genre of photography. What city, which model etc
Bruce recommends 2 days as a minimum per genre of photography. Pre production will be covered during the after noon or evening of the day you arrive, then a shoot day per genre and a day of post production day to finish off your master class. So if your taking a fashion and nudes photography 1-2-1 you will need a 3 day master class.
Accommodation and food
Accommodation at Chateau de L'art is charged locally at £125 (150 euros) per night per person full board.
Bring up to 3 other photographers with you and share the total costs, this will mean extra cost for accommodation at £125 per night per person sharing a twin room each extra person only pays 50% on the tuition fees but will still cut down the overall class fees considerable.
We would also need to increase the number of models and their fees for more than 2 photographers attending.
