Is the mentor who guides me qualified?
Yes, absolutely! Your mentor has more than 25 years of practical experience in fashion and photography and 6 years in teaching. Before that, she studied 1 year teaching, 4 years fashion and other 4 years photography. She is an authority in this field.
Can I ask questions if I don’t understand?
Yes, you can. We have every month a recorded Q&A session. Questions need to be delivered before the 15th of each month. This session will be recorded, so you can listen to it at your own chosen time and skip the questions you are not interested in. Also in the group classes, you can ask question any time, but technical questions will be answered in the group Q&A, because those might benefit all students.
What equipment do I need?
First of all, you need a camera that works manually as well as semi automatically. You also need one lens to start with. A zoom lens gives you the most variety in focal length. During the training, you learn, which lens to choose, and which one suits your style, so don’t buy more too soon. Other things you need: A computer with Photoshop, Bridge and Camera RAW software installed. Those are the basics.
I don’t know anything about photography yet; will it be too difficult for me?
No, we start at the basic and with clear and simple steps you will become advanced. Don’t worry; we will help you understand everything.
I already do know a lot about photography, can I only follow the fashion related classes?
No, but you can get a discount if you already know all technical skills needed. If you want it, check money related questions.
What is the difference between the group class and the solo class?
The group classes are set starting dates, and you will be added in a Facebook classroom group where you can meet other students starting at the same date, who can give you extra motivation. We will also share the personal video reviews here, so you can learn from each other. Also, you can ask questions in here. The technical questions will be answered in de Q&A though…
The solo class can start at any date you want, but you will miss your classmates who give you extra motivation. Also, you miss the opportunity to ask questions any time. We do recommend the group class! You can send your questions in to get the recorded Q&A sessions each month.
Is this training also for analogue fashion photography?
Most of the training is, although three topics we haven’t covered in this training: how to develop your films, printing photos in the darkroom and measuring light with a light meter. So, if you are into analogue Fashion Photography and you want to follow these classes, you need to learn those skills elsewhere.
