Recently I was invited to be a presenter at the AIPP Victoria "Shootout" at Montsalvat, a stunning historical estate on the outskirts of Melbourne. I was asked to give a seminar on how I create my Conceptual Fine Art Portraits.
The idea was to talk the attendees through my workflow-everything from finding a subject, the consultation, developing my creative idea (unique to them), building trust and enthusiasm, finding a location, gathering props, choosing wardrobe, lighting, styling, and posing, all while doing a live shoot. I had a great response from the attendees with many staying back to ask extra questions and confiding they loved and followed my work....I was so happy and very humbled to be able to inspire people to unleash their creativity, and help them on their path. A very enjoyable day!
Here are a couple of "behind the scenes" shots, a couple from the shoot itself, and the final image. I hope you like it :)
