The Concrete Loft Workshop

The Concrete Loft Workshop (Working with Modeling Agencies)

I've done this topic before but never like this. It's one thing when I teach this topic based upon my experience. It's a completely different story to hear and learn directly from a 5-year modeling agent veteran.

Learn directly from a 5-year modeling agent veteran!
– What it takes to be a modeling agency photographer.
– What modeling agents look for in a photographer's portfolio.
– How to get paid tests.

General notes:

-Who is L U C I M A? I'm a fashion-editorial photographer based in Los Angeles (see www.lucima.com). I also teach at the New York Film Academy (Universal Studios campus) to 1-year and 2-year MFA photography students. 

-Since good models are paramount to getting "the shot" we'll provide experienced agency-represented models for the workshop. I'll be updating this page shortly with who we're shooting. 

-Keeping the workshop small for more one-on-one attention. I will cap the attendance at 12. 

Photographers should bring: 
-Camera/assorted lenses 
-Computer to follow along for post work 
-Media cards. LOTS of them. And fast ones. Preferably 60mb/sec+. 
-Something to take notes with 

Q/A: 
Will update more as inquiries come in! 

Q: Where can I see more of the previous workshop results?
A: Please see our L U C I M A Workshop Facebook Group!

Q: Which airport should I fly into? 
A: LAX and Burbank are the closest

Q: Which models are we shooting?
A: Will update shortly! But chances are that they'll be the ones that you see most recently in my portfolio. See my tumblr blog for recent work! 

Q: Will we be shooting nudes? 
A: Nope. For that I suggest you go to Drew and Karl's workshops. I hear they're great. 

Q: At what point will you know whether you will register enough students to confirm the workshop? 
A: I never cancel my workshops. If there is even 1 photographer, the show goes on! Yes, I will teach to 1 photographer if only 1 registers!  

Q: Do I really need a light meter? 
A: Yes and no. But basically I'll be showing you how to light with AND without light meters. But for a long-winded version of this answer please see my official stance on light meters

Q: Are we shooting on location? 
A: Yes! Location will be provided upon registration.
