Richard Warren Fashion Photographer Workshop

Richard Warren, Fashion Photographer

‘Two Intense Days with Richard Warren’

November 5th & 6th at The Edge Photography Studio – Leesburg VA


The Edge Photography Studio promotes Editorial Style wedding photography and portraits with an edge. We are talking about story telling, fashion, emotion, and a combination of PJ style images blended with quickly posed strong images worthy of a top fashion magazine.
It’s about impact!

You are probably wondering why you would be interested in attending a workshop with a fashion photographer when you shoot weddings or portraits. Looking at Richard Warren’s website and you will quickly see the answers. Richard is a master of lighting, posing, colors with impact, but most important, each of his assignments tells a story. There is a theme perfectly executed from beginning to end. Think about how you can apply those skills to your work with brides including the increasingly popular “For His Eyes Only” boudoir sessions.

How to make that bridal portrait a fashion statement.

• Fashion photography
• Lighting on studio and location
• Portfolio Critiques
• Supplementary light sources
• How to direct and pose your models, (you will be working with models)
• Visual communication.
• Boudoir Sessions.
• Art and fashion influences, where It’s going and why you care.
• Digital tools Richard likes and how he uses them.

This workshop doesn’t promise to make you a top New York fashion photographer published in Elle and Vogue etc. You won’t find an opinionated, self-obsessed NY photographer telling you how great he is and why the world should worship him. You won’t find a workshop that’s intent to sell you a whole lot more of instructional books, videotapes, CD’s, DVD’s or “if you pay me more I will share that secret with you in my next workshop”.

You will find good solid instruction by a top fashion photographer who has survived in a very tough business by being a grounded good person who knows and loves his craft. Richard is obsessive about style, perfection in posing and lighting and freely shares that information in a non-threatening style. You will have fun because you will be working with a top photographer who loves his work.

The price for this workshop is $395.00 and $95.00 will save your place in the workshop.

Important note regarding times:
We will start at 9:00am each morning and finish at 5:00pm.

Each day will finish at 5.00pm. Lunch is included and will be from 12.00 ‘til 1.00pm.

What to bring:

Please bring a 35mm style SLR – digital or film.
Your camera instruction book (Hey, we don’t know everything)
Lenses? The widest maximum aperture lenses you have from wide to medium telephoto.
Note taking materials including pens.
Even if you have a computer for taking notes, you may still find some kind of writing pad handy for sketching ideas.

We invite you to bring samples of your work both portraits and weddings. You do not have to show others if you don’t want to. It’s a good idea to start preparing an easily transported collection of prints.

**Please remember, you - and you alone are totally responsible for the safety of your gear during this seminar. Neither The Edge Photography nor our instructors will take any responsibility for any gear lost, damaged or not returned**

We will be doing practical work where we will be shooting models supplied by The Edge Photography Studio.

It is not appropriate for you to use the images taken of either the supplied models or other attendees on your website, in competition, for studio display or for promotion of your business. The same goes for any images supplied for you to work on in Photoshop during the lecture.
