This practical course will introduce you to the aesthetics of digital fashion photography.
It'll help you develop your technical photography skills and complement them with an understanding of contemporary fashion photography and its context within modern society.
During the course you'll experience the different roles that make a fashion shoot happen, including assistant, producer, digital operator and client.
The photography will take place in both the studio and on location, and so you'll learn how to use camera flash and battery operated flash equipment, LED lighting and digital equipment.
You'll create your final artwork using industry-standard software.
This course is ideal for people who have some experience of digital photography but are new to fashion.
You might be adding new work to your portfolio or considering further studies, or you might be new to the fashion industry and want to enhance your image-making skills.
On this course you will:
- improve your understanding of digital photography and the manual settings of your camera
- experience working in the studio with professional lighting equipment
- direct a model and style a contemporary look
- source sets, props and backdrops
- create unique, beautiful and inspiring fashion images that demonstrate your personal approach.

By the end of the course you'll have a portfolio of fashion images that you can show to magazines or designers in the future.
You'll also have the knowledge and experience of how to plan a fashion shoot and how to work as part of a team.
