Rock Photography: Photographing The Cycle Pt 1. – Hunts

This is an ALL AGES event open to any photographers (pro, amateur, hobby, etc)
 

Description

Join SIGMA ambassador Anabel DFlux and Jeremy Saffer as they take you on the campaign trail.
Often times photographers are tasked with photographing an entire campaign for an artist including an album cover, promotional images, exclusive editorial images for various outlets, endorsement images, magazine covers, vast social media content and more… all in a single shoot. These are called record cycle or campaign shoots.
 
In days two and three of the four day workshop, Anabel and Jeremy will take you through both of their individual and distinct processes of taking on a campaign shoot. Navigating and responding to first contact with the client, through the shoot, and all the way to the final published images, leaving you with the knowledge of not only how to tackle a full cycle shoot but also giving you the hands on experience of taking on a full campaign shoot yourself.
 
On Day 1: Anabel and Jeremy will be focusing on capturing the album cover, getting that perfect iconic piece of art that sells the album, merch, and beyond as well as the band photos for the album and the various matching social media content needed to connect the band to their fans, and their fans to your art.
