Fashion Photographer Portfolio Development. Hosted by SHAMAYIM

An all-inclusive portfolio development session for aspiring fashion photographers.

Building a professional portfolio can be extremely challenging for an aspiring fashion photographer. The cost of renting a professional photography studio and professional studio equipment, booking a professional model booking, booking a makeup artist and pulling high quality wardrobe can become extremely expensive…especially for a non-paid test shoot. Unlike Shamayim’s workshops these sessions are designed specifically for you to produce images for your professional portfolio working with professional talent. The sessions are not designed as classes. Your session is your production and you are the director of that session. Shamayim will be on hand to mentor you though the experience and answer any questions you regarding equipment, direction, setup, technique and production.

These portfolio sessions are designed to have an all-inclusive experience so that you can focus completely on your photography.

Each all-inclusive session will include the following.

  • Half Day Studio Rental with seamless backdrops or cyc-wall, Professional Studio Lighting including stands, V-Flats, wifi, bluetooth speakers

  • Model Selection. Each photographer can select their model from the casting package we provide. We will cast experienced models from agencies or previous experience working with Shamayim.

  • Makeup Artist. Each photographer will work with the makeup artist for their specific concept. Shamayim will assist with the creative process.

  • High Quality selection of Wardrobe from Editorial Showrooms. Shamayim will be available to assist you with selecting the best looks.

  • Each session will include lunch for you and the team, concept sheets, and videography of your sessions.

Session Rate is $550

A Payment Plan option is available. Payment plans include an initial payment of $300 and the second payment of $250 is due two weeks later. There is a 10% processing fee on all payment plans.

Registration is only for photographers who are prepared to book their session.
