Gina Zhidov Photography Presents:

CANCELLED Fundamentals of Fashion Photography Course Outline CANCELLED

By Sikander Lodhi


This is an advanced level course offered by Gina Zhidov Photography Studio in collaboration with Sikander Lodhi. Photography 101 or at least some experience shooting with DSLR and studio equipment and shooting in MANUAL MODE.


Fashion photography has many additional aspects involved rather than just taking the shot. As the photographer, you’ll also have to organize and direct the models from start to finish.

In this course we take you on a fashion shoot and go through each stage from planning the shoot, helping you get your style of shooting, working with models, organizing a venue, organizing a team from makeup artists to assistants and the actual shoot.

Photographers will be introduced to fashion styles through Lighting and Direction. They will learn how to create and produce a fashion and beauty shoot as well as direct models and work with make-up artists and their entire “crew” on set. Work done during the course, will be discussed in a group critique session.

After this course you will confidently be able to shoot fashion and beauty shoots. These are the types of shots you see in professional fashion shoots. After you learn these simple but highly effective techniques, you will have the knowledge necessary to create these amazing photographs. You will discover professional fashion photography techniques and how to set up a shoot like a Pro, and much more! Techniques learned during this session can be easily applied to your portrait, family, glamour and boudoir sessions for unique edge to your photography.


What it takes to become a professional fashion photographer … the Creative Process.
